Mexico’s Velas Resorts has announced that they are giving away at least 100 free all-inclusive stays to healthcare workers. This is a show of appreciation for healthcare workers who worked hard through the coronavirus pandemic. Velas Resorts, which has properties in Riviera Maya, Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta, and Riviera Nayarit, is offering these stays through a social media contest where you can nominate a healthcare worker in your community.
We spoke with Juan Vela Ruiz, Vice President of Velas Resorts, about the Let’s Be Thankful campaign, the company’s plans for giving back to healthcare workers, and what contest winners can expect when visiting Velas Vallarta.
What inspired the resort to do this?
After this difficult and unprecedented year, we wanted to create a campaign that would showcase our appreciation for the healthcare workers who have fought tirelessly against the coronavirus pandemic. With our new “Let’s Be Thankful” campaign, we want to thank all healthcare heroes by offering well-deserved, all-inclusive vacations where they can rest, relax, and recharge. Our goal for the campaign is to give at least 100 free all-inclusive stays to healthcare heroes.
The contest will send winners to Velas Vallarta. Can you share a few things about what makes Velas Vallarta in Puerto Vallarta so special?
