Mario Lopez Actor-turned-TV presenter Mario Lopez is set to enjoy an exotic holiday season by taking a trip with his family to sunny Mexico.

The former Saved by the Bell star was unable to spend quality time with his wife Courtney and children, Gia, two, and three-month-old Dominic, on Thanksgiving Day (28Nov13) because he was busy hosting U.S. Talent show The X Factor.

However, Lopez has made big plans to make up for his holiday absence by treating his family to a trip to Mexico for Christmas Day (25Dec13) followed by Las Vegas to celebrate the New Year's Eve (31Dec14).

He tells U.S. DJ Ryan Seacrest, “On Thanksgiving we're shooting an episode of 'The X Factor,' and then for Christmas we are actually all going south of the border in a big family trip to Mexico to get a little vacation (in) and then we're going to be in Vegas for New Year's.''
