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.
Organic Weddings Now Offered at Casa Velas; Sustainable Elements Include Everything from Invitations and Dresses to Food & Decor
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (June 13, 2019) - Known for its sustainable initiatives and expansive botanical garden that provides ingredients for both gourmet menus and holistic spa treatments onsite, Casa Velas in Puerto Vallarta now offers Organic Weddings for couples looking to leave minimal carbon footprint. Everything goes green starting with digital invitations or ones made with recycled paper, seeds that can later be planted to grow wildflowers or herbs, or even the bud or crown of a pineapple to help fight deforestation. Additionally, the personal wedding coordinator onsite can assist with contacting Mexican wedding dress designers that use sustainable fabrics.
During the wedding, organic décor ranges from recycled confetti and biodegradable balloons to aromatic candles made with plants extracted from the onsite botanical garden. Couples can choose between lavender, eucalyptus and citronella. When it comes to the dinner menu, a banquet with organic ingredients grown completely free of pesticides is set up with premium bar. Highlights of the menu include mixed tomato and greens with fresh Mexican Requesón cheese and avocado, dressed in smoky hibiscus with pistachio powder; traditional Lime Soup with Mexican herbs; Slow Cooked Ribs with nopal cactus salad; and Poblano pepper caramelized in Panela whole cane sugar, with sweet pineapple filling and pistachio cream.
Organic takeaway gifts for guests are also considered, from handmade soaps with Rosemary, Basil, Basil and Lemon and organic honey to Lavender Mint lip balm.
