    In a new interview with Vidanta's founder, Daniel Chavez Moran, he describes the theme park, which is now being referred to as "The Parks," as follows (paraphrased translation):

    The Parks project is of enormous magnitude. In total, there are four parks, occupying an area three times larger than Magic Kingdom. Something we have learned is that a park alone does not generate the synergy that several parks can have together to develop the entire market. We have hired the best park developers in the world, from China, Serbia, and the United States.

    The parks are not developed for a hotel, they are made for the destination, as we did with Joyà together with the Cirque du Soleil, to enrich the Riviera Maya. During the first three years of opening of the four parks we calculated to attract between four and five million visitors to the destination.

    Statement from Vidanta given to earlier this month:

    Cirque du Soleil has always been—and remains—a very important part of The Parks.

    Since we first announced this project, we have decided to greatly expand its size and scale in order to include other mesmerizing, first-of-their-kind developments and immersive experiences to complement the Cirque du Soleil zone. We pride ourselves on delivering far beyond expectations on every new project and initiative we announce, and The Parks is certainly no exception.

    The Parks now spans over 830 acres and includes a vast array of 100% original concepts. The goal is to transform Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta into a new kind of destination where guests can experience every possible variation of the perfect vacation—from high-end tropical relaxation to gravity-defying attractions and everything in between—in one extraordinary location. Many of these new experiences are already under construction at the resort. In one section of The Parks, 25 acres of underground tunnels are currently being installed to ensure impeccable park operations and almost 1.3 million square feet of concrete foundations and structures have already been built, including portions of the new resort hotels. Two enormous lakes at the center of The Parks, totaling over 150 acres in size, have already been created with more on the way. And thus far, 1,500 trees have been planted, though once the project is complete, the total is estimated to be over 50,000.

    The wonder-filled region of The Parks dedicated to the creative genius of Cirque du Soleil will include a first-of-its-kind thrilling new production—a dazzling, large-scale extravaganza involving acrobatics, theatrics, water performances, music, and even a spectacular dining experience. This monumental new show will be housed in a gorgeous custom theater that will be an awe-inspiring sight in and of itself. Next door, there will be a Cirque Training Studio where guests will get the chance to grab the spotlight, learning tumbling, aerial arts, clowning, and so much more from the modern masters of the circus arts. While in the Cirque du Soleil plaza surrounding the theater and studio, guests should keep an eye open for spontaneous performances as they explore. We’re proud to continue our amazing partnership with Cirque du Soleil and work together on this highly anticipated collaboration so that we can give the world a breathtaking new type of experience unlike anything seen before.

    Members will be the first to learn all new updates about The Parks—including more exciting details on the Cirque du Soleil zone—as soon as they are available. For more information, contact your member services representative.

  3. I was there last Dec 2017 and it does not look like anything has changed. I am pretty skeptical if this will ever be done. We took a tour and saw a number of earth movers pushing dirt. From the looks of the most recent pics, NOT MUCH has been done. I seriously doubt it will open in 2020. We are REQUIRED by contract to buy a week in out kingdom of the Sun in 2020 the girl said it will be extended to 2025 if need be!

  4. Very glad to share. We have a production company ( and produced these images only 3 weeks ago. It is indeed an amazing construction site. On the north of the artificial lake at your left is the main site for the park. The artificial lake on the right of the bridge apparently will also have other different attractions and obviously will be part of some kind venetian water tours of sorts.
    Cheers! Everyone

    Great picture. Thank you so much for sharing. I had not previously seen the lake on the east side of the highway. It is massive and seems to take up a lot of the possible park land that could otherwise have been used for attractions, rides, hotels, or other. Still looks like a tremendous amount of work to do.

    Thank you so much for the update. Sounds like there has been very little progress in the last several months. Worth keeping a close eye on the development. Although it is not theme park related, the other important project underway at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta is the Estates. Construction on this development has been very slow as well recently. Hopefully things will pic up now that it is the offseason in Mexico (although I am not sure that would have really had an impact).

  7. We are here now and the park is still partnered with cirque du Soleil. They said will be finished in 2 years but I’m guessing that’s only phase one. The prior post with photos of the construction is accurate as of today.

    Does anyone have any updates? It has been months since we have learned anything. How is construction progressing? Anyone have any new pictures of status of construction? Thanks so much.

  9. Thanks so much for posting an update about the theme park at Vidanta. Do you know if Cirque du Soleil is even still attached to the project? This was the main reason we joined at Grand Bliss two years ago. At signing, we were told the park would be open by November 2018. Now it's looking like Phase 1 will not be opening until 2020. And there have been constant rumors circulating that by the time it's built, Cirque won't even be involved anymore. Would you happen to have any info regarding this?
