When booking your flights to Playa Viva, you might find that the best connections are via Mexico City and even those connections can require taking a dreaded “redeye” or an extra long layover. Rather than suffering through terrible flight options, we have developed a partnership which provides our guests with an opportunity to take advantage of a Mexico City Layover. As a result, we and have partnered with Las Alcobas Hotel – A Luxury Collection Hotel – on a set of fabulous custom tours.
Mexico City has become a real cool, hip and happening destination these days especially for the opportunity to enjoy the real culture, food and drink, art and architecture as well as the warm and welcoming culture and history of the real Mexico City, now referred to as CDMX (Ciudad de México).
These all start with you being met at the airport by a driver who meets you at the airport with a sign with your name, who speaks English, whisks you in comfort to your Las Alcobas in a “Black Car.” Once at the hotel, enjoy the excellent service, great design, free gifts of famous Mexican handcrafted candies plus selection of tequilas and mezcales in your room. We have worked with the Concierge at Las Alcobas to come up with a few select tours based on your interests (culture or food/art or anthropology) so you don’t have to waste time finding out what to do, where to go and who to guide you to enjoy all that makes Mexico City really special. We have curated a list of nearby restaurants (and street food) to satiate the palate of the “foodie” in you. And when it’s all done (depending on if you spend one night, two or three), you hop into your black car and off to the airport in style, rested, relaxed, filled with the best of CDMX and ready for immersion into the natural luxury of Playa Viva.
Las Alcobas is not a Regenerative Resort, and while they are working on improving their sustainability practices, they are definitely a beautiful property, run by a great team and very well located for you to completely enjoy a day or more in CDMX before being on your way to Playa Viva.
This package may be particularly beneficial for those traveling long distances from Europe and abroad allowing you to get the best of both Mexico’s, the Real Urban Mexico and the Real Beach Mexico!
