Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 20, 2009
Flor Escapes today announced the launch of its six-night unique cultural and wellness retreat to Mexico's central heartland, based in the state or Morelos. The retreat includes in-depth private tours using hand-picked local guides, authentic gourmet dining, and the exploration of three enigmatic archeological sites, Xochicalco, Malinalco, and Tepoztlán. Additional tours include visits to the historical centers of three cities, Cuernavaca, Malinalco and Tepoztlán, in addition to a private visit to the Robert Brady Museum and the Traditional Museum of Herbal Medicines.
The hotel, Hacienda San Gabriel de Las Palmas, was selected for this trip because of its authenticity. This artfully renovated deluxe 20-room boutique hotel that offers a unique history that dates to 1529. Lush gardens, a holistic spa, an outdoor pool, and horse stables, are just a few of the property's modern amenities. With an impressive history in Mexico's culture ranging from the country's colonization, civil war, to present day, the property proudly boasts historic relics and a chapel, and will offer an evening lecture over cocktails about the history and legacy of hacienda life in the Americas exclusively for this trip.
Wellness activities included on this retreat are a custom tailored holistic full body massage, cooking demonstration on healthy gourmet Mexican cuisine and optional participation in the ancient indigenous Mexican detoxification sweat bath treatment, Temazcal, guided by a local shaman.
