The month-long event will showcase avocados in food, spa treatments, cocktails, and more. Visitors can enjoy the Guacamania experience at Velas Resorts located in Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Maya, and Riviera Nayarit during the month of September.
Avocado lovers, rejoice: this healthy fruit is no longer just a topping to your toast; it’s the star ingredient in your meal, the garnish to your ice-cold cocktail, the emollient that will make your skin softer—when you travel to Velas Resorts in September. 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.
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.
From the moment you enter a Velas resort, the avocado-mania begins: you’ll be served a refreshing drink made from the fruit, or ushered to a buffet of housemade guacamole. An avocado chocolate awaits you on your turned-down bed; by the pool, avocado smoothies, or even an avocado popsicle, keep you cool. Avocados find their way into every meal—on top of sashimi or pizza, in gazpacho, BBQ, and smoothed into creamy macaroons.
You can 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 you’ve allowed this fortifying fruit to heal you on 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.
