An Avocado-Themed Retreat at Casa Velas

In Puerto Vallarta, Stay by Suzanne Koch

Give in to your avocado obsession during the month of March at Casa Velas. The adults-only boutique hotel in Puerto Vallarta is celebrating the green fruit with Guacamania. Guests can enjoy avocado-focused menus, avocado-themed spa treatments, a dedicated guacamologist and more.

A special menu at Emiliano, the resort’s gourmet Mexican restaurant, is highlighting avocados in every way imaginable. Indulge in avocado burritos, chocolate mousse made with avocado, waffles with avocado and walnut jam, avocado ceviche with mushrooms and jicama, avocado and tiramisu and more. And for those looking for a more traditional way to enjoy the fruit, a guacamologist will be available to prepare fresh guac at the pool and private ocean club. Guests can also enjoy avocado shaved ice in the pool area or try their hand in a cooking class to learn how to prepare different types of guacamole.

Let your skin reap the benefits of the tasty fruit too. The spa is offering an assortment of treatments using avocado as the main ingredient like an exfoliation with avocado skin, an avocado body wrap with natural yogurt and an avocado moisturizing hair treatment.

After a long day of relaxing, guests can head to the bar to sip on avocado drinks like cold avocado cream and an avocado and piña colada martini.

Can’t make it in March? The boutique hotel is offering Guacamania in September as well, in honor of Mexico’s Independence Day.
