- American UFC fighter Paige VanZant, Mexican soccer player Marco Fabián and Mexican sportscaster André Marín enjoyed some R&R in the Riviera Nayarit.
The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau’s Celebrity Watch detected a few sports celebrities who were enjoying themselves in Mexico’s Pacific Treasure last weekend.
Paige VanZant, the American mixed martial arts fighter who is currently competing in the women’s strawweight category in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), was completely enamored of her visit to Villa La Estancia in Flamingos.
“For being my first vacation it's going to be hard to beat! From the amazing food and spa to the beautiful rooms and flawless beach, I am so blessed to have enjoyed this relaxing vacation,” said VanZant on her Instagram account (paigevanzantufc), where she shared images of her trip. “What really stood out for me was the unbelievable staff. They were friendly, caring and went above and beyond with every request. The people there is what will really bring me back for another trip to @villalaestanciarivieranayarit.”
Mexican soccer star Marco Fabián, who rules Germany’s Eintracht Frankfurt team, visited La Cruz de Huanacaxtle and stayed in the luxury villas of Vallarta Gardens. Jesús Carmona, the development’s director of operations, took care of the soccer player himself during his nearly weeklong stay in the Destination.
