The Yo Amo México festival held by Rosewood Mayakoba, located in the Riviera Maya, celebrates its second edition and here we tell you everything you can enjoy about Mexican cuisine and culture such as: spirits, wines, design and various activities to promote what is done in Mexico.
The first edition of this event was in 2019, as a one-weekend-only experience, but in 2022 it has evolved and is present every weekend in March, along with various weekday activations, until April. In addition to enjoying and exploring gastronomy, on this occasion there will be activities focused on physical and spiritual well-being, sustainability and social responsibility.
“At Rosewood Mayakoba we seek initiatives to respect and celebrate the location where the construction is housed: the Riviera Maya. From the idea of further promoting the country, its cultural richness, the Yo Amo México festival was born. We wanted to do our bit to change the negative narrative that was held abroad about what Mexico means,” Christian González, director of sales and marketing at Rosewood Mayakoba, shared with us .
What activities will Yo amo México have?
For the first weekend of April, Amado Garza, owner of the Viñas de Garza winery, located in Valle de Guadalupe, and chef Drew Deckman, from Deckman’s in Valle de Guadalupe, will come together in a series of events called The Best of Lower California.
While on April 28, Andrea Muñoz, chocolatier of sustainable products, together with the spiritual guide of Rosewood Mayakoba chocolate, will hold a class where you will be able to learn the history behind this delicacy, from the ancestral preparation of cocoa made by the Mayans, until its evolution as a fundamental part of Mexican cuisine. Here you can enjoy tastings and practical activities.
And on April 29 and 30, Tru Miller, founder of the Adobe Guadalupe winery, will host a tasting of her wines at Zapote Bar, paired with dishes by chef Roberto Solís.
