New Insider Microadventures with Grand Velas Riviera Maya

By Lauren Jade Hill

The luxury resort Grand Velas Riviera Maya has revealed its new insider microadventures which uncover some of Mexico’s great cultural heritage sites: Chichén Itzá, Uxmal and Merida. And adding even more exclusivity, each of these trips includes transportation by CESSNA 206 single-engine private plane.

Of these excursions, the trip to Chichén Itzá is a unique opportunity to explore this land’s most famous Mayan ruins with a private tour guide. In the company of this expert, you can discover the stories behind the largest Pre-Columbian city built by Maya people between 750 and 900 AD. At this revered site, guests are treated to a three-course lunch of regional cuisine and given time to swim in a natural sinkhole known as a cenote.

Alternatively guests can opt for a trip to the ruins of Uxmal and the largest city on the Yucatan peninsula, Merida. Uxmal is celebrated for exhibiting late Mayan art and architecture at its best and as a result it is considered one of the most important archaeological sites of Mayan culture. A private guide leads guests around this Unesco World Heritage Site, taking in the Pyramid of the Magician and Governor’s Palace. You then continue on to Merida for lunch and a city tour with a carriage ride down the Paseo de Montejo avenue where elaborate homes line the street.

A three-night Insider Microadventure to Chichén Itzá starts at $3,960. The Insider Microadventure to Uxmal and Merida begins at $4,545. Rates are per person based on double occupancy and include meals at the resort’s gourmet restaurants, along with premium branded drinks, 24-hour in-suite service and use of the resort’s facilities.
