Returning for its second year this coming September to Garza Blanca Preserve Resort & Spa, Made in Mexico will again dazzle the senses with an array of events to honor the art, culture and traditions of Mexico. Culminating with a celebration on the eve of September 16th held in tribute to Mexico’s Independence Day, the days leading up to the national holiday will be jam-packed with festivities in recognition of Mexico.
Mexican Themed Activities
Guests of Garza Blanca Resort will be encouraged to join in the fun through a collection of Mexican themed activities that will center on the creatively dynamic culture of Mexico, such as a Mexican expo highlighting artisanal products including fine art, crafts, cheese and wine proudly made in Mexico. In addition to dancers, Mariachis and other displays of appreciation for Mexico’s unique heritage, the resort will host special guests of honor such Valentín Garcia Magaña, a revered studio potter hailing from Tonala, Jalisco representing Artesanías Erandi,
and Maria Rosario Mendoza, a fashion designer who will exhibit her skill through her Takasami label.
“Mexico is such a rich and varied culture, there is no end to celebrating its traditions,” declares Eliezer Quiñones, Garza Blanca’s General Manager, “I, for one, am really excited about sharing these experiences with our guests and members.”
Made in Mexico 2016
Made in Mexico will celebrate Mexico’s Independence and heritage with festivities during the month of September, showcasing the distinctive essence of this magical culture including tequila tastings and extraordinary Mexican specialties offered at the restaurants of the resort. In the week leading up to September 16th, arguably the biggest holiday in Mexico, when the country celebrates its independence from Spain, guests can experience a busy schedule of events focused on commemorating the legacy of Mexico (full program to be announced).
“Made in Mexico is one of the highlights of the year,” reports Alejandro Ayala Cuevas, Activities Manager, adding, “my team and I are really excited about the events we will be organizing; it’s what makes the job so rewarding.”
The inaugural run of Made in Mexico last year proved to be a success with guests such as fashion designer Aline Moreno (recipient of the National Fashion Award in 2014), who presented an enticing collection of high fashion with a downtown feel, complemented by the sounds of DJ JR.Cutz in addition to celebrity chef Carlos Gaytan of Chicago, who produced an outstanding meal for Blanca Blue restaurant diners.
With events taking place throughout the month of September and a concentrated number of them happening between September 12th and September 17th, Made in Mexico 2016 will no doubt make an indelible impression on guests and members visiting Garza Blanca in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
