“Girlfriend getaways,” are still an ever-growing trend in the travel industry. As more and more mothers, daughters, sisters and friends are booking women-only getaways, destinations and properties in Mexico are trying to position themselves as a viable option for that market.
A lot of these women opt for a pampering weekend that has a private and secluded setting and is filled with massages, yoga and relaxation. The latest property that fits this description in Mexico is Villa Verano, a beachfront rental estate that usual caters to celebrities and executives in Puerto Vallarta. This villa is looking to tap into the female travel market by offering a full line of spa services and yoga sessions. Other area activities that can be arranged include golfing, scuba diving, whale watching and horseback riding. “We offer ladies a private resort, with an eight-bedroom minimum,” says Burt Hixson, owner of Villa Verano. “It really gives them a chance to relax instead of being in a crowded resort that has everything they are trying to leave behind for the week. It gives them a chance to put their feet up, relax and recharge in a secluded setting.” Visit www.villaverano.com.
