Celebrate Father’s Day in Mexico this year at Grand Velas Los Cabos. The luxury resort has a variety of tequila-themed amenities and services for the father in your life.


Take dad for a tequila tasting at the resort’s Tequila Mezcal Bar. The bar boasts more than 140 varieties of spirits. The tasting features five different types of tequila: blanco, reposado, anejo, extra anejo and joven. If dad would prefer an in-suite tequila experience, opt for the tequila sunrise amenity. He’ll wake up to a pot of coffee complete with local tequila cream liqueur and fresh whipped cream. For a relaxing experience, book dad a blue agave candle massage. Blue agave is the plant from which tequila is made. The ingredient’s anti-inflammatory and moisturizing benefits make for the perfect massage feature. The promotion is available June 20–Sept. 30.

Rates start at $658 per adult per night based on double occupancy at the all-inclusive resort. Luxury suite accommodations, meals, beverages, 24-hour in-suite service and entertainment are included. Accommodations for children (ages 4–12 years old) and teens (ages 13–15 years old) cost $120 and $200 per night, respectively.
