Sister property Grand Velas Riviera Maya is welcoming guests with the Mayan Heritage Experience which includes a free suite upgrade, the above-mentioned Mayan Encounter tour, and a taste of authentic Mayan fare prepared by local Mayan women. Back at the resort, guests can experience Mexican Independence at Frida Restaurant with a special menu that pays tribute to some of Mexico City’s Grand Velas Riviera Nayaritgastronomy from the past 40 years. Rates for the Mayan Heritage Experience start at $330 per person per night in double occupancy in the Zen Grand Suite.
