Velas Resorts has launched new thrill-seeking adventure getaways for women, including activities such as extreme biking, diving with sharks and ATV riding.
Women visiting Casa Velas, Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit and Velas Vallarta can climb through the Sierra Madres, zip down one of Mexico's fastest zip lines, and ride all-terrain Polaris UTVs through rivers and over hanging bridges. A visit to a skydiving simulator wind tunnel is also available.
Exclusively at Casa Velas, women can enjoy their choice of an animal-style tequila or mezcal tasting with a side of a native delicacy: chapulines, crickets or chicatana ants. At Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit, a “female purification ritual” includes a water ceremony and copal aromatherapy treatment for revitalization. In addition, at Velas Vallarta, women are treated to a massage as well as a Mexican dinner in the Presidential Suite accompanied by the resort’s Mariachi Band.
On Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, Grand Velas Los Cabos is offering a five-night “Alpha Female Adventure Getaway” that includes a power hike through the Sierra de la Laguna biosphere reserve; a three-hour private yacht adventure, complete with snorkeling and paddle boarding; electric bike beach rentals; and an 80-minute, four-hands tequila massage.
At Grand Velas Riviera Maya, alpha females will have the opportunity to get face to face with sharks in the Caribbean Sea. Between November and March, women with advanced Diving Certification can swim with Bull Sharks. Between June and September, any level snorkel or diver can swim next to one of the ocean’s biggest creatures: Whale Sharks. Additionally, a tandem skydive from 11,000 feet is also available for thrill-seeking ladies.
