Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit has a new Tequila Experience that allows travelers to explore the making of Mexico’s finest spirit. The experience includes a private plane to Tequila, an exclusive tasting at Mexico’s oldest tequila house, lunch among the agave fields and more.
This offer is available exclusively for guests of the AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit as part of the Velas Spirited Experiences Series, which also includes a wine getaway at Grand Velas Los Cabos.
After traveling to Tequila in the northern portion of the state of Jalisco via private plane or luxury car, guests will arrive to Casa San Matias, one of the oldest tequila houses in Mexico. Participants will have the opportunity to learn traditional and modern tequila-making processes that include cutting agave leaves, learning how to cook the plant, and grinding, processing and distilling.
Guests can also enjoy a Mexican picnic at the Hacienda San Matias along the agave plantations. After lunch, guests can partake in Tequila Tasting, where they will learn the differences in each one and create a bespoke tequila blend to take home with them.
Finally, visitors can explore the rest of Casa San Matias and its tequila cellar where they’ll receive an artisan Mexican keepsake.
For a couple, the Tequila Tasting Experience starts at $8,244 for air travel or $3,544 for land travel. The rates also include a three-night stay, a la carte meals at a variety of restaurants, premium branded beverages, 24-hour in-suite service, taxes, gratuity and more.
