Paradise Awaits
We returned to Casa Velas for the 2nd year in a row & we were even more happy with our stay this time! It s the most quiet & peaceful resort we have ever stayed at. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway, this is the place to go! The grounds & accommodations are beautiful & the staff could not be more helpful and pleasant! We will be back at Casa Velas again!

A Honeymoon Well Spent
We spent our honeymoon here and couldn't have been happier. Everything from the staff to the bathroom cleanliness was excellent. The food was delicious, the pool and beach club were gorgeous, and the service was incredible. We also used the spa for a couples treatment and were dazzled by the amenities and staff. The location and security were also fantastic. Very close to the marina and it's nightlife, while being only a short drive from the central Puerto Vallarta boardwalk. Finally, the on-site activities were a joy. Each night there was a new theme (e.g. a "Cuba" night, a casino night, etc.) and we loved them all. It was a truly wonderful experience and I wouldn't recommend staying anywhere else.

Let's celebrate Mexico's Independence in Velas Resorts style

 In Mexico, the celebration of Independence Day is a grand event filled with colors, flavors, traditions, and rich history. It is always an honor to share a piece of this festivity with locals and foreigners alike, so Velas Resorts has already started preparing for the weekend of September 16th. So, let's glimpse the experiences you can enjoy if you visit some of the destinations where the resorts are located. Shall we begin the journey?


Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit
We start at Velas Vallarta, where from September 15th to 17th, you can indulge in live music, traditional cuisine, and typical dances. The menu will include classic and delicious dishes like chiles en nogada, tamales, a variety of tacos, and authentic Mexican salsas. The festive atmosphere will be enhanced with the presence of an all-female mariachi band, and to fully immerse in the celebration, there will be a regional dance performance. Additionally, guests can delight in tasting stations offering local treats such as cajeta, tamarind sweets, and churros.

Meanwhile, guests can enjoy a festive cocktail and regional dishes at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit while admiring the beautiful sunset.

In Grand Velas Los Cabos, you'll have the opportunity to learn about traditional Mexican cuisine through a special cooking class and savor a tequila tasting. Furthermore, you'll experience an authentic Mexican fair with games like lotería (Mexican bingo), a mechanical bull, ring toss, marbles, and more, all accompanied by lively live music.



Riviera Maya
Grand Velas Riviera Maya will join the celebration with a spectacular Mexican fiesta, showcasing ancestral cocktails and a beautiful dance performance representing the local culture in all its splendor. As if more were needed, the acclaimed Frida restaurant will offer a special menu featuring the traditional Mexican dish: chiles en nogada.
