ZARKANA by Cirque du Soleil

Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil Las VegasZARKANA by Cirque du Soleil  |  Las Vegas, United States  |  Last night I went to see ZARKANA, after a previous night of Michael Jackson ONE also produced by Cirque du Soleil, which left me wanting more acrobatics and signature WOW moments. Both the last and newest productions/shows by Cirque. Zark, the ringmaster of an extraordinary circus coming back to life, guides us in an abandoned theatre populated by a motley collection of off-the-wall characters and incomparable acrobats. Among other attractions, he introduces the Mutants, four sirens as sinister as they are fabulous. Zarkana,  playing at the Aria Resort & Casino, an acrobatic rock experience that blends circus arts with the surreal to create a world where physical virtuosity rubs shoulders with the strange. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends

Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil

Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil by www.carlosmeliablog.comMichael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil  |  Las Vegas, Nevada, United States  |  So today I arrived to Las Vegas, and right after checking in at my hotel, invited by Cirque du Soleil and Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, I got myself to the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino right on time to enjoy my first show while in town. Michael Jackson ONE, is one of the six current productions by Cirque de Soleil, being performed along The Strip. Developed between Cirque du Soleil and the Estate of Michael Jackson.  ONE is heartfelt tribute to the work, innovative spirit, and legacy of Michael Jackson – the King of Pop, the genius, the visionary, the One.


The producers claim to be a reinterpretation of the King of Pop’s influence, infused with theatrics and acrobatics for which Cirque du Soleil is known. During and hour and a half, you will go through the entire repertoire of Michael Jackson’s classics. So if you are a fan, you will love it and have a blast. Now if you are like me, who likes the artist enough, but more the show he used to deliver on stage, perhaps ONE fell a bit short on acrobatics, dance and a few rather dull moments with excess of paraphernalia, basic visuals and flying acrobats. My favorite moments of the show were Beat itBillie Jean and Man in the Mirror when the spirit of Michael is brought to the stage to dance with the the cast. And of course, the moment everyone was waiting for in the crowd, Thriller. Worst moments, were to me, every single time the Guitarist dress in yellow showed on stage, looking as fake as the wind blowing her wig.

Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil by www.carlosmeliablog.comMy verdict is… if you are a fan and/or come to listen to Michael Jackson and have a great time, then DO NOT MISS IT. If you are looking to see the best exponent of Cirque du Soleil acrobats, dance and performance, then keep your options open to the other five Cirque productions along The Strip.

Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour by Maverick

Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour by Maverick | Las Vegas, Nevada | Do you want to WOW yourself and have an unique experience of Las Vegas ? Like a friend of mine told me last night “…OH you were in Vegas, that doesn’t count as a trip…”. Well guess WHAT, the Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour by Maverick Helicopters made it worth it indeed.

An over 3 hours tour of the Grand Canyon with the added value of Hoover Dam, Lake MeadMojave Desert, the Valley of Las Vegas and the sunset overview of The Strip (aka. Las Vegas Boulevard). My TIP, instead of taking only the sunset Helicopter Tour of The Strip, which I did the day before (see here), I suggest taking the Grand Canyon Tour which at the end includes also the Night Tour of The Strip. From USD 409 x person on.

Descend and land 3,500 feet into the Grand Canyon in Hualapai Indian Territory. Champagne, beverages and light snack on an exclusive panoramic bluff some 300 feet above the mighty Colorado River in one of the greatest natural wonders of the world.

Fly back and conclude your adventure with an exciting flight over Downtown Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Strip. Duration: approximately 4 hours (hotel to hotel). Departure Point: Las Vegas terminal (includes complimentary transportation to and from hotels within five miles of the Strip). Items To Bring: Camera, sunscreen, photo ID (for anyone 18 yrs or older) and if you should forget anything visit our gift shop.

(*) Check more Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour photos and the FULL Las Vegas Flickr Album @ Las Vegas Photo Album.

Las Vegas Helicopter Tour

Las Vegas Helicopter Tour |  Las Vegas, Nevada |  What a better way to see Las Vegas and the world famous renown Las Vegas Strip that from the air. Well that is exactly what I did this afternoon, courtesy of Maverick Helicopter Tours. A fantastic 12 minutes helicopter ride over the most iconic hotels and attractions of the Sin City.

A very brief safety introduction by one of their most handsome pilots, after having checked in and welcomed with a glass of champagne. Maverick is located only a few minutes away from The Strip and the main hotels. Not only they offer this Las Vegas and The Strip tours, but also half or full day tours to Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon.

Trust me, I have done helicopter tours and rides at the most impressive places in this world, but the Glitz and Glamour of the night neon flashing lights of Las Vegas, cannot be compared or matched. So I would suggest taking this tour, and if possible once the sun is down and the moon high up. This tour is very accessible, running from USD 114 on per person.
