Mexico: Ricky Martin to perform in Dec. 28 show at Cancun resort

Spend an evening livin’ la vida loca with Ricky Martin on Dec. 28 when the Grammy Award-winning singer appears in concert in Cancun, Mexico. 

The Puerto Rican superstar, who has sold more than 60 million albums, will perform at Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort.

The all-inclusive mega-resort, which has hosted the Beach Boys, Shakira, Jon Secada, Enrique Iglesias and Usher, is offering guests who book a stay of five nights or more two complimentary tickets to the performance. Tickets also can be purchased through Ticketron. They cost $70-$536.

Palace Resorts, with seven oceanfront resorts on the Caribbean, has spent $55 million upgrading and expanding its signature property, Moon Palace, during the past year, said Cessie Cerrato, public relations manager for Palace Resorts.  

Among the improvements have been Noir, the resort's new $2-million nightclub, inspired by the film “Tron."  

Other upcoming entertainment includes performances by Chicago, Feb. 14 and 15, 2014, and Michael Bolton, March 29 and 30.

Moon Palace is on Cancun's south shore and has more than 2,400 water- and garden-view rooms or golf villa suites. There are two children’s pools, 27 holes of golf, a golf club pool, six Jacuzzis and four swim-up bars.

The property also includes 15 restaurants and nightly entertainment at 16 bars and lounges.

All-inclusive accommodations start at $171 per person per night, based on double occupancy.
