Sandos Playacar & Sandos Cancun: You Won’t Believe It’s Not Michael Jackson

Posted on 3 m read

One of the world’s best impersonators

Attention all Sandos and Michael Jackson fans: Get ready for a new show at our hotels Sandos Playacar Beach Resort and Sandos Cancun Luxury Resort!

It doesn’t matter if your name is Billie Jean or Dirty Diana, when you vacation with us in Playa del Carmen or Cancun, you can now see an incredible musical performance honoring one of the most famous and talented artists in history: Michael Jackson.

This new show will have you dancing in your seat, and it’s called “Mampuele: The Essence of Michael”. It’s not only a tribute show, it’s also a true imitation; Mampuele doesn’t just dance and look like Michael, he also sings live with a voice very similar to Michael Jackson’s.

Mampuele Michael Jackson impersonator

About the Artist

Mampuele is a Spanish artist with over two decades of experience as a Michael Jackson impersonator, mainly in the city of Madrid. Now, his show will be presented at Sandos Cancun and Sandos Playacar each week so our guests in the Mexican Caribbean can experience the talent of this artist.

Mampuele discovered Michael Jackson at the age of six; he says, “I discovered him thanks to a videoclip made by Paul McCartney. That was my first real contact with music. Since then, I wanted everything that had to do with Michael, even the cassettes that they sold at the Readers’ Circle.” Soon he began imitating the dances, choreography and voice of Michael, and eventually his song lyrics and movements as well. At as young as 14 years old, he had begun to imitate his voice and dance professionally, and over 20 years later he still imitates Michael Jackson on an international level.

Today, Mampuele is a singer, dancer and music producer. He was a star of the show “Forever: King of Pop” for three years, during which he toured through Spain, France, Poland, Switzerland and even Puerto Rico.

You can get a taste of Mampuele’s talent in the video below:

Come See the Show

Our impersonator is so good that you’ll be asking yourself… “Could it really be him?” And you can already see the show since Mampuele: The Essence of Michael is already running at Sandos Playacar Beach Resort in Playa del Carmen and at Sandos Cancun Luxury Resort. The show takes place each Tuesday night at our new and beautiful Gran Plaza at Sandos Playacar, the perfect spot for cocktails from the bar, live shows and a dreamy atmosphere under the stars. If you’re at Sandos Cancun, you can enjoy the show every Friday night at 9:00 pm at our outdoor Bar Two with relaxing ocean breezes.

The premier of Mampuele: The Essence of Michael at Sandos hotels will take place sometime this month. We hope you can come visit us soon to experience this new weekly show, whether you’re at Sandos Cancun, Sandos Caracol or Sandos Playacar.
