Puerto Vallarta’s Fantastic Acrobatic Show at the Amphitheatre

First off, I don’t know the name of this troupe and I couldn’t find it anywhere. If you know please let me know – this was one of the best acrobatic shows I’ve seen outside of Cirque de Soleil, and this was free!

The show was at Puerto Vallarta’s Los Arcos Amphitheatre on November 24, 2019.

It started with a stylized stepped pyramid on the stage accompanied a story told by by the woman on the screen. There was such a panoply of lights, movies, animation, action, music, costumes and storytelling that even though it was in Spanish one didn’t need know Spanish to be entertained.The red-lit stage set for an acrobatic show in the Puerto Vallarta nightTraditional dance of the indigenas – probably Mayan as that pyramid is Chichen Itza.Acrobatic show at the amphitheatre in Puerto Vallarta, MexicoA pensive moment in the show (and a chance to show how the video was wonderfully sympathetic to the live action on the stage).Acrobatic show at the amphitheatre in Puerto Vallarta, MexicoAcrobatic show at the amphitheatre in Puerto Vallarta, MexicoDark ninjas appeared on the stage and then a skeleton made of lit-up juggling pins.

At the end they asked us to put our photos up on their Instagram page but I never caught their name nor was it written anywhere, and I couldn’t find it on Google either. If anyone knows the name of this troupe please let me know – I have a ton of photos of them for Instagram!
