Riviera Nayarit, Mexico (November 7, 2018) – The AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit has launched a new way for guests to enjoy fish straight from the sea. Guests can bring along a resort chef on a 4 to 6-hour fishing expedition in the Banderas Bay. As catches are made and pulled in, the chef will prepare several dishes to enjoy on deck, including Zihuatanejo-style fish strips, tuna ceviche with mango and habanero chili, fish tartar with tomato and avocado, sashimi, and Carpaccio. For guests who don’t find luck during their time onboard Beluga, a 32 ft. Luhrs sportfishing boat, the chef will have a cooler of fish available to prepare some culinary delights. Captain, fishing equipment and bait are also included.
Other Velas Resorts also offer complimentary fresh catch experiences. At the AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Riviera Maya, a fishing boat will bring fresh fish, like grouper and snapper, from the water just off the resort’s shore to the chef to directly prepare on the beach grill. Additionally, the boutique adults-only Casa Velas in Puerto Vallarta has traditional panga fishermen bring their fresh catch to the chef at its Ocean Club on Banderas Bay to prepare for guests.
