Trip to Grand Velas in Riviera Maya

Muddy, IL, Mamuang, and all,. We arrived yesterday to this 5 stars all inclusive resort. Very pretty here and all you eat and drink at the eight restaurants. We will wander off the resort today to see if I can find some good tropical fruits. More photos coming.



Have a wonderful time! It looks like there is a wonderfully cool breeze there. Don’t forget to tell us about the fresh fruit you find to enjoy.

We were surrounded by water; yet, didn’t go to the beach once on our trip. But we don’t live in Omaha, and can spend a day at an ocean beach anytime.


Royal Poinciana AKA flame tree. Beatiful!

The red/orange ‘Flamboyan’ is beautiful!!! Take more pics soon. :palm_tree:

Very nice there, the water looks amazing. I can just sit and watch that crystal clear water for hours. Enjoy every second!

What a choice of vacation destination!! Take more pics.

Wild, glad you told me what that tree is. I grew up with them but don’t know its bonatical name. Thanks.


Don’t forget the sunscreen.Brady

Wow, Tony, very beautiful place, love the orange flower, enjoy your vocation

I found some coconuts.


OH TONY! You may have seen my raves in the past. I’ve been to countless destinations in the Caribbean and Mexico and you are right in my very favorite place of all. It is heaven on earth! And Grand Velas is seriously one of the nicest places in the entire Mayan Riviera. I know its tempting to never leave the grounds, but take time to check out Playa Del Carmen and even consider a trip to some of the Mayan Ruins and Pyramids and Xcaret. But you can’t go wrong whatever you do…you are in the greatest place on earth IMHO!!! ENJOY!

Fabulous. I wish we could fit in your suitcase! That breakfast is gorgeous!

This is the best customer service of all the 5 Stars Resort that I have been through. They open the door for you every where you go. Pull out your chairs and fold up the cloth napkin every time you walk away to get foods. Btw, I got a guess came out of the tropical forest to visit Us. I gave him 2 bananas.


You’re a big tipper! :laughing:
