Calling All Avocado-Lovers! Velas Resorts to Host Guacamania Fest

In Los Cabos, Playa del Carmen & Tulum, Puerto Vallarta, Stay, Stay, Stay by Suzanne Koch

Avocados are taking over Velas Resorts during the month of September with Guacamania! Lovers of the creamy green fruit can satisfy their addiction with special dishes, avocado-inspired cocktails, spa treatments and more.

Upon arrival, guests will be greeted with a refreshing drink made with the delicious fruit or even better, whisked off to a buffet of house made guacamole. Find the heart-healthy food on top of sashimi and pizza, in gazpacho, BBQ and even in macaroons. Enjoy avocado smoothies and avocado popsicles by the pool, or try one of the specialty cocktails. End the day with avocado chocolate, found on your bed upon turn-down. For even more avo-goodness, book a day at the spa where you’ll find avocado as the star ingredient in a variety of treatments like skin scrubs, body wraps and hair treatments.

Guests will also be able to learn the ins and outs of the fruit’s history and tradition through on-site classes that will teach different ways to incorporate it at home.
