Casa Velas will impress guests with a special avocado-focused menu, avocado-themed spa treatments, dedicated guacamologist recipes, and more. Emiliano Restaurant –awarded Four Diamonds by AAA– has a special menu highlighting avocados, including 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 prepares 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 is offered in the pool area. At the spa, different treatments are 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 has a menu of avocado drinks, such as cold avocado cream and an avocado and piña colada martini.
The resort will also be offering the Guacamania experience in September in honor of Mexico’s Independence Day.
