The Spanish and English-language comedy series stars Enrique Arrizon as Máximo Gallardo, whose dream comes true when, in 1984, he gets the job of a lifetime as a cabana boy at the hottest resort in Acapulco. But he soon realizes the job is far more complicated than he ever imagined as all of his beliefs and morals come into question. Eugenio Derbez narrates the series and plays the present-day version of Máximo.
Season 2 will see young Máximo in 1985, contending with upheaval at the resort, unexpected problems at home and a new love interest who just might rival the girl of his dreams. In the present, older Máximo (Derbez) arrives in Acapulco, where he encounters various people from his past — for better and worse. The cast also includes Fernando Carsa, Damián Alcázar, Camila Perez, Chord Overstreet, Vanessa Bauche, Regina Reynoso, Raphael Alejandro, Jessica Collins, Rafael Cebrián, Regina Orozco and Carlos Corona.
