The Ultimate Mexican Getaway For Tequila Lovers

Food & Drink

For anyone who enjoys sipping tequila, a new “Fly Over Tequila” experience offers tequila lovers a rare opportunity to indulge their inner passion.

AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit, located on Mexico’s Pacific coast, has curated a bespoke, five-day, tequila-themed itinerary for two. This intensive tequila getaway is a “blend” of education and hands-on experiences.

To make the experience as seamless as possible, guests are assigned a personal concierge upon arriving in Riviera Nayarit.

The same individual accompanies them on a two-day, one-night journey to Tequila, the epicenter of tequila production, in the Mexican state of Jalisco, before their return to Riviera Nayarit.

Highlights of Fly Over Tequila at Riviera Nayarit

  • An hour-long water ceremony at the resort’s Spa at Grand Velas (named among the best spas in the world by Condé Nast) begins with a seven-step water experience followed by a tequila cream massage.
  • A private taco and tequila tasting on the beach
  • An afternoon mixology class that couples cocktails with Mexican culture, followed by a Golden Ranch Water tequila cocktail infused with 24K edible gold flakes.
  • A private helicopter ride from Riviera Nayarit to Tequila, flying over the fields of blue agave that are used to make the spirit.

Five nights of five-star accommodations

The package includes four nights at an oceanfront Ambassador Grand Class Suite at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit and one night at the charming Matices Hotel de Barricas in Tequila, a 15-minute walk from the center of town.

Situated between a stretch of sandy beach and the dramatic Sierra Madre mountains, Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit features a three-tier infinity pool that overlooks Banderas Bay. Guests enjoy meals at six gourmet restaurants, complimentary premium branded spirits, 24-hour in-suite service, use of the fitness center, taxes, and gratuities.

The resort stands out as the only all-inclusive property to have received the AAA Five Diamond award for 14 consecutive years.

In Tequila, guests stay in a barrel-themed suite at Matices Hotel de Barricas. At this unique property, each suite was created by a different Mexican artist inspired by a tequila-related story.

America’s love affair with Tequila

The Distilled Spirits Council of the U.S. reports that sales of agave-based liquors (like tequila and mezcal) are soaring in popularity. While pickleball was America’s fastest-growing sport in 2022, agave-based liquors represented America’s fastest-growing spirits category.

The Fly Over Tequila experience, including all meals and activities, is priced at $38,100 for two adults. .
