A Deal a Week: Riviera Maya "Green Escape" at Grand Velas

Grand Velas Riviera Maya encourages families to explore the lush jungle and beach setting of Mexico's Riviera Maya and "go green" this spring with its Green Escape package. The beautiful all-inclusive resort actively participates in many green initiatives such as using biodegradable products for cleaning, reforesting the surrounding areas with over 18,000 trees, and operating its own co-generation electricity plants to reduce energy dependency. The landscape and beachfront are a tribute to its commitment to preserving the environment for generations to come.

Grand Velas' Green Escape package includes accommodations in the Master Suite; a guided tour to the Mayan sacred wells including an opportunity for the family to plant a tree together; and a meeting with an expert from the Mesoamerican Reef Tourism Initiative followed by a guided snorkel tour of the Moc-Che Reef. Each adult may also choose on of three additional tours: Sian Ka’an Biosphere, Isla Contoy (home to the second largest coral reef in the world), or Xcaret Natural Park. After you plant your tree, you'll receive a certificate with map coordinates so you can watch it grow via Google Earth. How cool is that!

All meals, beverages, and private transportation to and from Cancun airport are included. The package is priced starting at $435/person per night and is valid through April 30, 2010. Children under 16 are free. A minimum stay of 3 nights is required and the maximum occupancy is two adults, two children under 16, and one child under 2 years per room. You'll take your experience home with you, as well. For more information or reservations, click here.
