Do you already have an idea of ​​what to give for the next Mother’s Day? If you answered “no”, here you have an incredible idea for a getaway to give the queen of the house; and if your answer is yes, maybe you’ll have a change of mind after reading this.

Momcation: The new travel trend

One of the best gifts to give someone is a trip. Whether it’s a weekend getaway, or an entire week, visiting other cities or countries lifts the spirit. One of the most booming trends —especially now that Mother’s Day is coming— is the “Momcation”, which provides the opportunity for mothers and children to strengthen their bond while learning about other cultures and sharing memorable moments.

The Grand Velas resorts —located in Riviera Nayarit, Riviera Maya, and Los Cabos— set the bar high on this subject. Pampering moms at these properties is easy, as they offer a collection of innovative services and activities ranging from deluxe in-suite amenities and Spa treatments to shopping tours and champagne tastings.

The “Momcation” experience at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit includes accommodation in a Grand Terrace Suite, where you can enjoy a 50-minute massage and incredible sunsets from the private terrace. Mom will learn how to make a mezcalita —a delicious mezcal-based cocktail— and she will relax in an anti-gravity yoga session or a wine & cheese tasting. This resort also includes a shopping tour in Sayulita and San Pancho —two nearby colorful beaches full of natural charm— and a discount at the resort’s boutique so she can buy her favorite clothes from Mexican brands such as Pineda Covalín.

On the other hand, Grand Velas Los Cabos offers an entire Spa day. Mom will learn how to create a homemade hand scrub and will surrender to relaxation with a 50-minute aromatherapy massage, a 50-minute organic blue agave facial, and SE Spa’s Water Ceremony. To enhance the experience, she will also enjoy a private yoga session on the beach, a hat decoration workshop where she can create her souvenir, and a tasting of the resort’s best champagnes and sparkling wines.

The experience ends with a blissful treatment at SE Spa, awarded 5 stars by Forbes Travel Guide.
