Kids

Grand Velas Los Cabos recently launched a new Adopt-a-Plant program that allows kids to adopt and care for a plant of their choosing during their stay at the resort. The resort believes a love and appreciation for nature is more important than ever, and the hands-on activity will teach valuable lessons about responsibility and stewardship — perfect for family travelers!

 

A wide variety of plants are available to choose from, including flowering plants and leafy succulents. The hotel’s staff guides children on care for the plant, from watering and pruning to the right amount of sunlight exposure. The hope is children gain a deeper understanding of the natural world and the importance of nurturing and respecting all forms of life through daily care of the plant.

Post-vacation, the resort will provide regular updates and photos of the child’s plant via email to show them how it grows and changes over time. Children can keep an eye on their plant from afar until they return to Los Cabos, seeing it bask in the sunlight, sport new growth or bloom with flowers.

 

The Adopt-a-Plant program is included in the resort’s all-inclusive plan, with nightly plans starting at $1,461 per night at double occupancy. The rate includes gourmet meals, premium branded beverages, 24-hour in-suite service, nightly entertainment, taxes, gratuity and more.
