The Velas Resorts in Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Maya and Riviera Nayarit are getting into the holiday spirit with a new Christmas Experience package. Vacationers are invited to soak up the gorgeous Mexican coast while enjoying holiday favorites like tree trimming, cookie decorating and holiday gifting.
As part of the Christmas Experience package, guests can go online prior to arrival and opt to have a Christmas tree (pre-decorated or with separate ornaments for family decorating) and gifts delivered to their suite. Everything can be easily pre-selected from the online list, including their choice of ornaments, tree toppers and presents.
On Christmas morning, children will delight in finding brightly wrapped boxes filled with Barbie dolls and Legos under their tree. At the Grand Velas Riviera Maya, kids also receive a stuffed Amy, the resort’s mascot, as a Christmas gift, while guests at the Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit receive a stuffed Pancho.
Kids (and kids at heart) are also invited to enjoy the following resort activities:
• Cupcake, cookie and ornament decorating
• Cooking classes
• Break dancing lessons
• Traditional Mayan dance shows
• Santa’s Workshop
• Live animal shows
• Sand sculpting… and more!
