Families visiting the AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Riviera Maya this summer and beyond can explore 206 acres of lush vegetation with the new Jungle Adventure Experience. The guided eco-educational tour, given in the resort's private Yucatan jungle, showcases the area's remarkable wildlife and natural wonders.
While in the Yucatan jungle, children will see mangroves, flora and fauna, and a freshwater cenote. They will learn how eco-friendly paper is made and even make their own. The tour also includes a traditional Mayan ceremony with a butterfly release and workshop to create their own canvas paintings from recycled materials. Finally, kids can feed the resort’s fish living in a cenote located by the resort’s Mayan restaurant, Chaka.
Each child participating in the tour will receive a special kit, inclusive of binoculars; pamphlet identifying regional flora and fauna; puzzle with the resort’s beloved mascot, Pancho; Grand Velas baseball cap, and a bottle of water.
The Private Jungle Adventure Experience costs $375 USD for up to 5 people.
