Mexico’s award-winning Velas Resorts, with locations in Los Cabos, Riviera Maya, Riviera Nayarit, and Puerto Vallarta, has partnered with Air Partner, a global leader in private aviation services, to present this once-in-a-lifetime 14-day adventure. Inclusive of private jet charters, bespoke experiences, a stay in Velas Resorts’ Presidential Suites and dining on the world’s most expensive taco – it goes for a whopping $25k – the two week Grand Velas Journey is sure to thrill its guests. Featuring 15 distinct travel experiences spread across Mexico, the trip starts in style with a personalized private jet charter from anywhere in the U.S. to Cancun.

“We are thrilled to be offering this extraordinary experience with Air Partner,” said Juan Vela, vice president of Velas Resorts. “The combination of our carefully curated trip itinerary, featuring a variety of exclusive activities and micro-adventures spotlighting Mexican history and culture, with Air Partner’s top-notch service makes this journey a truly once-in-a-lifetime luxury travel experience.”

The ultra-premium and seamless experience starts with private jet transportation coordinated for the entire trip by Air Partner and accommodations ranging in size from 2,793 – 5,451 sq. ft. at the AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas properties in Riviera Maya, Riviera Nayarit, and Los Cabos. Upon arrival, travelers will take a private transfer to Grand Velas Riviera Maya in Playa del Carmen and have a four night stay in the Grand Class Presidential Suite. At this stop, guests will visit an underwater museum on an opulent VanDutch 40 and lunch 60 feet underground in one of the destination’s relatively undiscovered cenotes. Along with an ancestral beverage tasting, there will be a Mexican Caribbean cooking class at the resort and a Mystic Mayan Spa evening complete with a live performance from dancers.

Next, travelers will be whisked away by Air Partner again on a private jet for a daylong adventure to Tequila to visit Casa San Matías, one of Mexico’s oldest tequila houses. From learning century-old processes to tastings and a Mexican picnic in the agave fields, guests are able to create a bespoke tequila blend to take home in a Huichol-designed bottle. After a tequila filled day, guests are driven to Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit for four nights. At this stop, experiences range from the Wixáritari Journey to visit the ancient holy site of Altavista in the hills of Nayarit, to Sportfishing with the Chef and a private cinema beachfront and Huichol Massage.

‘The bespoke experiences we have included in this experience offer our guests an inside look into the Mexican way of life,” said Vela. ‘Travelers will get a true sense of Mexican gastronomy, art, culture, and more.”

They will then go to Ensenada, Mexico via private jet to experience the resort’s Over-The-Top Wine Lovers’ Getaway and visit three top wineries for private tastings before heading to the D’ Poncelis vineyard to make their own vintage. The stop here cumulates with a special dinner including a wine pairing in the middle of the vineyard from the resort’s two-star-Michelin Chef Sidney Schutte. The last stop before heading back to the U.S., is to Grand Velas Los Cabos in Baja California Sur and a four night stay in the resort’s ultra-luxurious Presidential Suite – which features an expansive oceanfront terrace with spacious plunge pool and lounge area and a 127 mm Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope to spot whales and other marine life in the adjacent Sea of Cortez.

Here travelers will enjoy a thrilling hiking adventure to the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains and learn about the Pericúes, the first aboriginal inhabitants of the area. After the journey guests will dine and witness a one-of-a-kind rock mapping light show. At the resort, travelers can enjoy an Art to Table Dinner and take a bite out of the World’s Most Expensive Taco. The normally $25K culinary masterpiece showcases premium ingredients like langoustine, Kobe beef, Almas Beluga caviar, and more in a creative way.

Pricing for the Grand Velas Journey starts at $500,000 USD for two people based on city of departure and return. For reservations, please contact Dinorah Tobon, Tour & Travel Sales Manager of Velas Resorts at dtobonh@velasresorts.com or 01-984-877-4418.
