Wild, fresh, delicious: this is Almaverde.
Thanks to this mindfully run organic-compliant produce farm, Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta is well on its way to sustainably supplying all in-season products to its many restaurants, cafeteria, and markets.
And what better way to learn more about the farm than to spend a day immersed in its hands-on operation? This brand-new Almaverde experience is now offered exclusively to guests of Nuevo Vallarta every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday, from 10:00 AM-3:00 PM between November and May.
Helmed by the beloved Joy Squad, the tour includes an educational walk through the farm’s fields, seedhouse, and greenhouse, where guests can take a tip from Almaverde’s by-hand harvest and pick their own fresh produce. Afterward, “tote” your fruit and veggie swag back to your room in a limited edition Almaverde market bag, perfect for bringing the memory of this extraordinary experience back home.
As the tour concludes, guests will gather under the refreshing shade of Almaverde’s 100-year-old parota tree to watch one of Vidanta’s esteemed chefs prepare a family-style meal using the farm’s own produce. The multi-course feast might include such dishes as a zesty salad of freshly picked greens, tomatoes set off by the farm’s peppery basil, irresistible New York steaks and a special catch of the day sizzling on the grill, or a wholesome chicken roasted with spices and served with sweet corn. Soak in the last of the afternoon with a slice of homemade seasonal fruit pie, and taste the care applied to every step of this remarkable operation.
Almaverde is key to Nuevo Vallarta’s commitment to providing guests the utmost in sustainable tourist experiences. Contact your concierge to make this exceptional gastrobotanical experience the most unforgettable memory of your next vacation.
