Welcome to JOYÀ—you’re in for a wild ride.

There’s something else that guests just can’t stop talking about—there’s live music performed around the resort by Cancun’s best artists, and captivating Theme Nights where the traditions of the area leap to life.  Whether you prefer a soft guitar and fine wine or lively brass and spirited dancing, you can find your show.  Enjoy these acts nightly at bars, restaurants, and event spaces across the resort.  Ask your concierge for the schedule of live music during your stay.
