    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).

  2. 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.

  4. 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?

    Visited Vidanta and received park update - Jan 2019

    I was at Vidanta earlier this week (Jan 2019) and went up to 9th floor of Grand Bliss, overlooking the new park and received an update on construction.

    1st of all, I told Vidanta staff they were awful at communication and park goers who are interested in visiting are making up their own messaging about the park. It appears to me as if funding is constrained (I had heard some interesting rumors about original park ownership & funding having come from certain, ah....questionable sources, not rumors I chose to inquire about, but construction is indeed proceeding

    1st: the original park architect and Vidanta have (supposedly amicably) parted ways. A new architect has been hired and the park is progressing from what I saw. Both Phase 1, hotels, cirque acrobatics and rides and Phase 2, water park, are under construction. There are 4+ construction canes erecting hotels (typical Puerto Vallarta concrete/block construction) and access roads and various hydrologic and civil construction projects are under way.

    2nd: Phase 1 construction is scheduled for completion Nov 2020; not sure of Phase 2 and beyond.

    3rd: there will be two levels of park accommodations: a normal hotel style in studio, 1 and 3 bedrooms (with convertible coaches, which, if Sea Garden is any indication are quite comfortable) and an exclusive, ultra expensive, luxury style (I have rights for 10 weeks in 1BR normal style along with guaranteed park admission every day through that week), which I plan to rent on open market, once park opens

    4th: there will be a train from the center of the Vidanta property, Santuario (the central cocktail lounge/showroom) as well as a gondola from the Grand Luxe.

    5th: attendance each day will be capped at 6,000 people

    6th: overall park size is planned for 240 acres (I think the original plan was 26). If you know the Vedanta property, there is more than enough room (and water) to support the planned size. Also, the water park plans include a "lazy river".

    These are all plans as of today...so of course, anything can change.

  9. Just returned, there seem to be about 4 hotel buildings roughed in, but not complete. There is a large earthen embankment going around the site.

    Saw them actively pouring concrete roadbed every time we drove by, and not by the entrance plaza.

    According to one of the Vidanta hotel managers, they have completed the underground utilities, so above ground progress will become more apparent.
