This is the best performance I've seen in Cancun in many years. Deseo is a small (~20 person) European-style circus with clowns, jugglers, acrobats, contortionists, tight-rope walkers. The talent is incredible. I've never seen a rola-bola act of the degree they presented (6-7 levels high...More

We love Cirque-type shows, so were very pleased to see this one. All acts were good. The first was wonderful. The Clowns were extraordinarily sweet, creative, funny. (not creepy as some feel about clowns). Liked the music, it was so fitting for each act. The...More

My husband & I visited Backstage for the Deseo dinner show last night. While you cannot compare this circus to Cirque, it is really an excellent show. It is a nice change from the typical Cancun Mexican shows. There were no options for the food,...More

Backstage came to our resort one night for a 45 miute show for free as our nightly entertainment. We were very surprised! I visit Cancun every six months and these new 'cirque' are all the rage but this was by far the best one to...More

The actual show was very good and quite enjoyable. The meal was not so good - very plain and no choice. Wait staff was good. If you have the choice, skip the meal and just go for the show.
