Concierge Gifts Guests Artisan Huichol Butterflies as New Checkout Amenity At Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit
Riviera Nayarit, Mexico (August 25, 2017) -Guests at the "Beyond All-Inclusive, Beyond All Compare" Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit now receive a handmade Huichol Butterfly from their personalconcierge at checkout. Each with a one-of-a-kind appearance, the butterfly is hand-crafted by Huicholartisans with the traditional "chaquira" beading that originates from "La Casa del Huichol" in Guadalajara, Mexico. Representing change, the butterfly is highly regarded by Pre-Hispanic populations as a symbol of transformation and evolution in life. An indigenous legend says that when one wants to wish for happiness and to make desires reality, they should whisper the request to the butterfly and then release it. In gratitude, she will rise to the highest of the heavens, and the wish will be granted in appreciation of her freedom. The butterfly is presented in a keepsake box made with recycled wood designed by Mexican designers.
