Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico - Avocado lovers, rejoice: this healthy fruit is no longer just a topping to your toast; it's the star ingredient in a meal, the garnish to the ice-cold cocktail, the emollient that will make skin softer - this September at Velas Resorts.
The collection of luxury resorts is celebrating the avocado and its Mexican heritage with Guacamania, a month-long fest capitalizing on the flavor and nutritional value of this famed fruit with new menu items, avocado-inspired cocktails, spa treatments, and more.
Guacamania begins at the start of your stay at Velas Resorts, as you are served a refreshing drink made from the fruit, or ushered to a buffet of house made guacamole. An avocado chocolate awaits on the turned-down bed; by the pool, avocado smoothies, or even an avocado popsicle, are available to keep you cool. Avocados find their way into every meal - on top of sashimi, pizza or BBQ, and smoothed into creamy gazpacho or delicious macaroons.
Wash down these innovative dishes with avocado craft cocktails created by Velas Resorts' mixologists to play up the fruit's natural flavors - paired with exclusive liquors.
After this fortifying fruit heals the inside - avocados have heart-healthy fats and potassium - permit avocados to work magic on the outside with several avocado spa treatments, including skin scrubs, massages, body wraps, and hair treatments.
An avocado specialist will even be on-hand to share the fruit's history and deep tradition to teach on-site classes, sharing techniques to incorporate this ingredient at home, too.
While the festival experience is slated for September, guests who come through Dec. 31 can still indulge in Guacamania's special dishes, cocktails, spa treatments and more, on request at Velas Resorts in Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit, Los Cabos and Riviera Maya.
