We were really impressed by our visit to Casa Velas in Puerto Vallarta Mexico, but what we didn't realize is that they have some awesome bachelor party and mancation packages too. While resorts like Casa Velas have unlimited golf packages, they also offer golf and fishing packages, in-room cocktail parties, taco bars, and even Guacamania ...
Honestly, you almost don't need a specific mancation package or bachelor party package to have a great time with the guys at a Velas Resort. They are already all-inclusive and based on my stay at Casa Velas in Puerto Vallarta some of the core things are already there. This includes Mexican craft beer tastings, tequila tastings, great skirt steak, and tacos etc. However, that doesn't mean you can't always take things up a notch for that extra special occasion!
Guacamania: Guacamologist, Avocado Themed Menus and Spa Treatments!
Forget WrestleMania, it’s time for Guacamania! 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 September 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. Additionally, a guacamologist will prepare fresh guacamole for guests at the pool area and private ocean club.
Guests can also participate in a cooking class to learn how to prepare different types of guacamole. To keep guests cool in Puerto Vallarta’s temperate 85’F weather, avocado shaved ice will be offered in the pool area. At the spa, different treatments will be offered using avocado as the main ingredient, such as an exfoliation with avocado skin, avocado body wrap with natural yogurt and an avocado moisturizing hair treatment. To cap off the experience, the bar will have a menu of avocado drinks, such as cold avocado cream and an avocado and piña colada martini.
