With special avocado-focused menus, avocado-themed spa treatments, dedicated guacamologist and more, guests visiting Casa Velas, an adults-only boutique in Puerto Vallarta, in March will get to experience a tribute to the green fruit.
At Emiliano, the resort's gourmet Mexican restaurant, a special menu highlighting avocados will be available. Highlights include avocado burritos, chocolate mousse made with avocado, waffles with avocado and walnut jam, avocado ceviche with mushrooms and jicama, avocado tiramisu, and more.
