Long story short we regrettably signed up for a vacation club at Live Aqua in Punta Cana. I've come to learn the contract is via Fiesta Americana Vacation Clubs (FAVC) and financed through groupo Posadas in Mexico. I'm 2 months past my recission date, signed up in August 2022. My question is...
We have 2 Vidanta Estates contracts each with 1 registered week and 2 Estates weeks (non registered weeks). What is the best way to monetize them (selling or renting) and where can we do that?

I’m trying to find the very beginning of the Mexico Belaire thread(s) that started around 2006 or so. When I use the search function I can only get back as far as 2008. I’d like to get back to comments prior to 2008.
Thank you for your help.

My wife and I are spending the winter in Bucerias — just a little north of Nuevo Vallarta (near Puerto Vallarta).
