A shining jewel in the crown of the Riviera Maya, the Vidanta theater is a delight to the senses with its magnificent architecture that ushers us into the fantasy world that only Cirque du Soliel can provide.  The majestic thatched roofs, dazzling water features and sensational lighting give theater goers sense of awe and wonder from the moment they alight from their transport and find themselves presented with this incredible sparkling oasis in the jungle.

Champagne, always in perfect taste, and any number of specialty cocktails are offered by impeccable service staff, as well as course after course of exquisitely crafted culinary treats, followed with an entire book-full of desserts- just for you!  For those of us who cannot decide which dessert to order, dessert is served as four intricately sculpted, ambrosial confections, each one more sumptuous than the next.  While the meal is a first class pleasure of its own, it is also accompanied by music played by a wonderful concerto trio that plays a mix of Caribbean music that helps to set the stage for the intensity of the masterpiece of showmanship, sound, lights, and scenery that is to follow.
