New Micro-Adventure to Ancient Rock Carvings Now Offered at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit
Riviera Nayarit, Mexico (September 13, 2019) - The AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit now offers the Wixáritari Journey, a new private micro-adventure to visit the ancient holy site of Altavista in the hills of Nayarit. Guided by an indigenous Huichol, guests will learn about 2000 year old rock carvings and native culture and customs before participating in a spiritual ceremony for Nakahue (our fertility grandmother) and Tatevari (our grandfather of fire). Located among lush flora and fauna, the 15 petroglyphs were originally engraved in volcanic stones by the Texozquienes Aztec people. Meant as spiritual callings to the gods, each of the stones depict stories of everyday life such as health, fertility, rainfall, and trade.
After the experience, guests will board a catamaran at the Mexican port of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle for a gourmet lunch prepared by the resort's executive chef and an afternoon on the Banderas Bay.
The Wixáritari Journey costs $4,418 USD for up to 10 people, not inclusive of the resort's nightly rate.
Nightly rates start at $381 per person based on double occupancy at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit. Rate includes luxury accommodations, a la carte gourmet meals at a variety of specialty restaurants, premium branded beverages, 24-hour in-suite service, taxes, gratuity and more.
