Verana in Verana, Mexico

January 07, 2011

I was lucky enough to leave for Mexico for the holidays that just passed. This is where I stayed: 0afb9 foodie verana

Verana is located in Yelapa, Mexico which is about one hour from Puerto Vallarta. You can actually see the city from the other side. The concept of this five star boutique hotel is to mix contemporary design with the nature.

All of the eight houses available are cohabiting with the jungle and you might end up with one wall missing or none at all. The perfect experience whether it’s day or night!

The breakfast was served between 8:30AM and 10:30AM following a tea with a warm muffin dropped at our door each morning at 8AM.

The options on the menu were all exciting and the plates were perfect.

Verana is also a day spa which is outside of the “hotel”. It’s a five minute walk down to the coast and a beautiful restaurant is open for lunch to serve amazing food while you enjoy the view.

The chef working at the spa is a young and passionate cook and it is definitely translated in his food.

We received a delicious lunch on each activity day spent away from Verana. On a hiking trip to the Tecumata Falls, our final stop was in a ranch where a lovely lady prepared coconuts for us.

The bar was the meet-up spot on evenings to have a refreshing cocktail and chat with the other guests. I spent some wonderful times there and got to try exciting margaritas such as Chili Margarita, Passion Fruit Margarita and Hibiscus Margarita.
