- The new docuseries, created and hosted by Aarón Díaz, showcases the culture and natural beauty of this tourist destination with extreme action shots in extraordinary locations.
Nature, culture, tradition, gastronomy, and the most interesting people in the Riviera Nayarit are all on display in “Reconnect Mexico,” a new docuseries hosted by actor Aarón Díaz, who takes his audience on a trek down Mexico’s paths less traveled.
“Reconnect Mexico” isn’t just any travel show, and Aarón Díaz doesn’t aspire to become a YouTuber or vlogger—the idea has always been to create a documentary to extol the wonders of Mexico and transmit them via the “Reconnect Mexico by Aarón Díaz” official YouTube channel.
The actor himself will be publicizing the event through his official Instagram account where he has 4.2 M followers, as well as that of his wife, model Lola Ponce, with 1.3 M followers, in addition to multiple press conferences and interviews.
Reconnect with the Riviera Nayarit
The documentary is aligned with the Riviera Nayarit’s communication objectives as part of the “Disconnect to Reconnect” campaign, which invites people to disconnect from their daily routine to reconnect with the world, nature, and themselves.
The entire crew of “Reconnect Mexico” was in this tourist destination between November 8 and 13, and the first episode premiered on February 18. The following episodes were broadcast on February 21, 25, and 28, and there is still one episode to be broadcast on March 4.
One of the first episodes was filmed in Sayulita and begins with a spectacular sunrise and the immensity of the sea. After riding along the fabled Calle Delfines in this Magic Town, Aaron arrives at the beach where he meets Lola Mignot, one of the best longboard riders in Mexico. Lola, who is known as “The Princess of Sayulita,” joins Aaron for a surf session. “Lola is a world-class surfer, so I’m not going to be the one to show off this time, but I’m going to be in charge of taking some good pictures,” he says.
Also included in this tour were the Islas Marietas National Park and its Playa del Amor, La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, the Sierra de Vallejo, the archaeological site of Altavista, and the mysterious “Pila del Rey,” the La Tovara natural park in the historic Port of San Blas, the Isla del Coral in Rincón de Guayabitos, and the Matanchen Pier, as well as various aspects of the Huichol culture, among other sites.
About “Reconnect Mexico”
Aarón Díaz has mentioned in different national and international media the great love he feels for our country and the wonders he has found in his tours: “Each state has wonderful things that most people don’t know. The objective of this is to show how wonderful Mexico is in culture, traditions, gastronomy, natural beauties and most importantly, its people.”
The first phase of the project included recordings in five states-destinations in the country, although recordings are already being prepared in five more. There are also plans to edit and lengthen the chapters in the future so that they can be transmitted on the streaming platform, because in his own words, he hopes “to reach different parts of the world, to show the beauty of the country and erase the negative perspectives of Mexico.”
The Riviera Nayarit is a safe destination. Hotels, restaurants, and tourist establishments are following all the health protocols established by the Federal Government’s Ministry of Health and operating at the allowed capacities. Access to the beaches is limited. Be a responsible tourist: wear your mask and keep your distance.
