Treats and Tradition Mix With Extraordinary Accommodations for An Unforgettable Holiday

PUERTO VALLARTA, Mexico – Nowadays Santa takes his sleigh South of the Border, but long before the flying reindeer landed, Mexico had its own very special brand of holiday celebrations. This season, Mexico Boutique Hotels (MBH) invites guests to discover these charming traditions throughout the month of December with the Feliz Navidad! Promotion—and take home more than just memories.

“Mexico has so many wonderful customs that go well beyond the exchange of gifts,” explains MBH Director, Sylvie Laitre. “During the month of December and into early January, religious festivities and secular events mesh into cultural celebrations like the candle-lit posadas, the breaking of the star-shaped piñatas filled with fruit and candy, and the Three Kings feast—just to name a few!”

“Our member hotels are exceptionally positioned to offer guests a close-up and personal taste of the sights, sounds and tastes of la Navidad, because they themselves are uniquely representative of the best of Mexico’s destinations,” she adds.

Book your December trip prior to November 30th, 2007 for a stay of three (3) nights or longer and receive a gift basket with a selection of items that can include anything from a hand-crafted tree ornament or a bag of aromatic Mexican hot chocolate mix with a wooden frother to a miniature handcrafted Nativity scene or a fresh-baked rosca de Reyes, a traditional ring of sweetened bread that hides a figurine of the Christ child, traditionally eaten on the afternoon of Three King’s Day, or Epiphany. (Inclusions vary by hotel.)

Participating hotels include Casa Cid de León and Hacienda los Laureles (Oaxaca), Hacienda Sepúlveda (Lagos de Moreno), Hacienda de los Santos (Alamos), Hacienda Xcanatún (Mérida); Las Alamandas, Tamarindo and El Careyes (Costalegre); Mesón Sacristía de Capuchinas and Mesón Sacristía de la Compañía (Puebla); La Quinta Luna (Cholula); Doña Urraca and La Casa de la Marquesa (Querétaro); Los Juaninos, La Casa de las Rosas and Villa Montaña (Morelia); Casa Natalia (Los Cabos) and Villa Ganz (Guadalajara).
