On one of our last nights in Cancun, we decided to go to see JOYA Cirque du Soleil. It was amazing! The show included dinner and a bottle of champagne for the two of us. They provided pre-show entertainment for dinner as shown above. Everything there was so beautiful. It was such a magical experience. Getting there however, was a little rough. We booked our tickets through our hotel, Cancun Westin Lagunamar which included transportation and the dinner and show experience. The pick up location was right across the street from the hotel. Getting to the pick up location was easy, however, the transportation provided was on a coach bus which was not handicap accessible. Unfortunately, they didn’t have any accessible buses or transportation provided to the show. It would be very difficult for most people in a wheelchair to be able to get into the bus. Luckily, there were a couple of nice people that helped carry Gary onto the bus. But if being carried unto a bus is not your thing, your best bet would probably be to get a cab from your hotel to the show. I’m assuming that might be pretty pricey depending on where you are staying. The show’s location is in Rivera Maya, not Cancun.
When we arrived to the show, they had someone guide us from the parking area all the way into the building where the show was held. They also let us go into the show before everyone else to get situated. We booked the show the night before, so unfortunately the handicap accessible seats were already booked. The dinner area they found for us was down a couple of steps, so a couple of the workers helped carry Gary down the stairs. This actually went very smoothly and everyone was very nice and helpful. I don’t know how it would work if you were in a power chair though. So I would suggest to book early to ensure you have handicap accessible seats and don’t run into that problem. There were areas you could sit that didn’t involve stairs. They weren’t handicap accessible seats and they didn’t serve dinner there, but you could get a bottle of champagne or wine and could probably make it work for you. The dinner service and food were fabulous and the atmosphere was even better with the wonderful pre-show entertainment. We didn’t get any pictures of the dinner but we did get a picture of the dessert. It came inside a book!
The actual show was amazing. So much talent! The whole experience is highly recommended by us! Go check it out!
