  1. They told me that Cirque du Soleil is involved in the project. They completely changed the configuration of the park.

    Thank you so much for the update. Was there mention of Cirque's ongoing participation and which phase they may control.

  3. I just came from a high level presentation and I had the opportunity to visit the construction site. There’s a lot of people working there 24 hours a day. There’s big improvement. All the buildings in a row that you see on the satellite map are the Hotel Celebration. The others are the Kingdom of the Sun and Cascade. They are supposed to open the first phase in 18 months and the Nocturne Forest in 2022. They would like to open it in December 2019 but I personally think that it's going to be later. They also want to build a gondola that will bring the members directly to the park.

    This is a recent rendering of the theme park. It closely aligns with the work being done.
    There are so many rumors and speculation. From a sales rep at Vidanta I was told that instead of opening in phases they would open the entire park all at once in 2021.
    No one seems to have any firm information.

    New satellite imagery from today that shows that the largest resort on the bottom continues to rise and a lot of dirt around the site is being moved around but that's about it right now...

    New satellite imagery from a few weeks ago shows that some progress has been made, particularly at one of the new hotels where multiple cranes can be seen, a new road is being built, and the small plots of land in the middle of the lake are now islands.

    "Mexico village struggles to navigate tourism tightrope"

    Some worry the development of the surrounding resort areas [Cirque du Soleil theme park] has altered the river’s flow and could increase the flood risk to the Pacific Coast village, about 10km north of the beach town of Puerto Vallarta.

    “This is like a ghetto - we’re here, we can’t see what’s happening on the other side,” said Vazquez, as trucks weighed down with construction materials trundled past his corner cafe.

    “We’re not against development, it’s welcome ... but it’s putting us at risk (of flooding from the river).”
    Grupo Vidanta, which owns luxury hotels such as the Grand Mayan between Jarretaderas and the Pacific coast, said it had teamed up with Cirque du Soleil on the theme-park development - which is expected to open in two years and will involve other companies.

    It said it was committed to a strong environmental and social policy, and that its developments complied with all environmental legislation.

    Cirque du Soleil, the Montreal-based circus and entertainment company, said it could not give details at this stage about the development in the Nuevo Vallarta resort area.
