¡Viva Mexico! The Balancing Act Heads South of the Border
December 6, 2017
Vloggers and Hosts Showcase the Magic of Mexico through La Colección Resorts by Fiesta Americana
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.
The special episode’s correspondents include mom vloggers Sarah and Jessica, who chronicle exhilarating fire shows, succulent seafood meals and scuba diving during their stay at La Fiesta Americana Cozumel.
Meanwhile, travel vloggers Keri and Brynn check out Playa del Carmen’s vibrant La Quinta Avenida shopping and party district, just a few minutes’ walk from La Colección’s Live Aqua Boutique Resort. The duo encounter plenty of adventures on the way, from poolside parties with brides-to-be to indulging in the resort’s ultra-relaxing Feel Sense Spa.
