My Cancun as an Airtransat Expert Expat - Video


A photo posted by Notch Video (@notchvideo) on



Living in Cancun for the last twelve years I like to think I've learned a thing or two about the destination. I have explored and had adventures all up and down the coast and if you know me at all, you know I love to shout from the rooftops my love for Mexico and in particular the Riviera Maya. My digital proclamations of love attracted the attention of the fine folks at Air Transat and I was delighted when they invited me to shoot a video and write a few blogs as part of their "Expert Expat" series.

The production team from my hometown in Toronto contacted me and we began the plan of attack. I had a lot of ideas to share (I mean A LOT), so narrowing down the shooting schedule was all about finding the perfect locations to show off the things I love about the region; culture, history, nature and adventure. The guys from Notch Video and Cycle Productions were open to all my suggestions and I knew from the first emails that we were going to have a blast together.

My Canadian brethren arrived from the great white north and we started things off with an interview at the Hyatt Ziva Cancun. Oh those guys were sly, I didn't even realize the camera was rolling when they started asking questions, perfect way to ensure I wasn't nervous! They probably wondered if I would ever shut up, get me talking about my favourite topic and it's hard to stop me. We wrapped up the formal interview and were ready for adventure in the jungle.

Obvio I was going to take them ziplining and Selvatica set the scene perfectly with their patient and knowledgeable guides helping us get some rocking footage. It was no easy task getting the big cameras rigged up to the zips but oh so worth it in the end. I hope the guys from the production team had as much fun as Max and I did! We finished the day in time to make a sunset stop in Puerto Morelos, taking advantage of the lovely light and the crowds on the pier, even borrowing a fishing rod for Max to show off his casting skills.

Day two started off early in the markets of Cancun before hitting the road to Xcaret. It was the ideal shooting location, truly a great representation of all the qualities of Mexico that I adore. Our trusty guide Leo went above and beyond to capture just what we needed and the day was a success.

The experience overall was amazing, Max learned tonnes about video production and technology and I had a great time playing tour guide for the cameras. And now I present to you the final product, a beautiful representation of why I love Cancun and the Riviera Maya.



My gratitude to all who made this possible, having these shared moments with Max captured for posterity is a gift I will never forget.

Great video - makes me want to visit Cancun very soon! I've been trying to find out if Cancun has any nursing homes that cater to ex-pats or who at least have some English-speaking staff. My husband has had Parkinson's for 25 years and we're at the end of me taking care of him. He's currently in a nursing home in Ecuador, but I'd like to move closer to the kids - and to someplace a bit warmer. Do you know of any nursing homes in the area? Thanks. Peg
