(DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. – PR Newswire – December 6, 2017) Award-winning morning show The Balancing Act® will air a special episode that takes viewers on a whirlwind exploration of Mexico, focusing on the magnificent beach resorts owned by hospitality company Fiesta Americana along the Yucatán Peninsula. The episode, titled “¡Viva México! The Balancing Act Heads South of the Border,” airs today, December 6, 2017, at 7:30 a.m. (ET/PT) on Lifetime®. The encore presentation of this special episode will air December 12 on Lifetime at 7:30 a.m.

Your journey is curated by The Balancing Act host Olga Villaverde and a team of vlogger correspondents who travel to Cancún, Playa del Carmen and Cozumel.

According to the World Tourism Organization, Mexico is now the world’s eighth most popular tourism destination. Despite the steady influx of international tourists that drive a $20 billion-a-year industry, many Americans have apprehensions about the safety and infrastructure of our neighbor to the south.

Olga was aware of these negative perceptions and didn’t know what to expect when she brought her whole family to Mexico, but she’s immediately floored by the resort’s stunning beachside views and extraordinary hospitality.

Serving as Olga’s tour guide is Javier Barrera, Vice President of Fiesta Americana Hotels & Resorts, who takes her on a tour of Cancún and the alluring properties of La Colección.  Javier opens Olga’s eyes to the natural beauty, friendly people and mouthwatering cuisine that sparks a love affair with Mexico for many American tourists.

By the end of the trip, Olga and her family feel right at home, thanks to the gracious hospitality of the Fiesta Americana staff and the entire local community. She can’t wait to return to this little slice of paradise.

To discover for yourself all that Mexico has to offer, you can book your vacation in paradise with La Colección’s Sunny Winter promo, and get up to $100 resort credit per day.
