1. The Cirque du Soleil Theater at Vidanta Riviera Maya
Custom built to house Cirque du Soleil JOYÀ, this magical theater seated in the depths of the Mayan jungle resembles a flower unfurling into the sky. Vidanta guests aren’t the only fans of this statuesque design—the theater won the honor of Building of the Year as named by Grupo Expansion and Obras Magazine.
2. The Mayan Statues at The Grand Mayan at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta
Before you step into The Grand Mayan lobby, you may pause in a sanctuary-like space with impossibly high ceilings and theatrically low lighting. As your eyes adjust, you realize you’re being greeted by massive Mayan gods, their hands outstretched in welcome. Suddenly, you realize you’re someplace very special.
3. The Entrance at Vidanta Los Cabos
This brand-new entrance just off The Grand Mayan’s lobby perfectly showcases the beauty of Los Cabos, with its remarkable ringed tunnel magically illuminated by hanging lanterns. A stroll down the polished stone walkway trains your eye on the sweeping grandeur of this oasis in the desert.
4. The Palapa Docks at Riviera Maya
The waters of the Caribbean are known for their vivid greens and piercing turquoise blues. At Vidanta Riviera Maya, there’s no better way to admire the stunning shore than from any of these docks, all of which are perfectly punctuated with a palapa lookout at each end. You can even top off the ultimate romantic getaway to this gorgeous resort with a Cena Romantica, or custom candlelit dinner for two, afloat on the docks.

Situated on a peninsula stretching between an estuary and the Sea of Cortez, the Nicklaus Design Course is like no other course in the world.

There’s a reason this was named one of the best and most fascinating courses in the world.

9. The Ameca Bridge at Nuevo Vallarta
As the world’s longest golf cart suspension bridge, the Ameca Bridge offers an exhilarating view of Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta. It bridges the state of Nayarit, where the majority of the resort (including the Nayar Course) is located, with the state of Jalisco, home of the Norman Signature Course. As you drive over the bridge’s lofted path, the lush riverbanks showcase the region’s verdant nature in all its untamed glory.
