The special episode immerses viewers in a first-person experience of Mexico, from offering a sampling of the fabulous food and vibrant culture to taking tours of the stunning amenities offered by La Colección’s impressive array of resorts.

Your journey through the heart of the Yucatán is curated by The Balancing Act host Olga Villaverde and a team of intrepid vlogger correspondents embedded in Cancún, Playa del Carmen and Cozumel.

Olga was one of those who had heard troublesome stories about Mexico and didn’t know what to expect when she brought her whole family to the family-friendly Fiesta Americana Condesa. To assuage her worries, Javier Barrera of La Colección takes Olga on a tour of sun-splashed Cancún and the luxurious Live Aqua Beach Resort.

Javier helps open Olga’s eyes to the natural beauty, gracious Mexican hospitality and mouthwatering cuisine that sparks a love affair for many international tourists. The pair sit down for a fresh, authentic Mexican breakfast just steps from the white sand and shimmering waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
