Souvenirs are tricky.
How do you capture the specific happiness of your vacation, compared to anyone else’s? Or the pleasures of this vacation, versus trips you’ve taken before? More and more, savvy travelers are seeking authentic, personal experiences—the kinds of unique activities that distinguish travelers from tourists, and make for the most vivid memories. The Viva Vidanta Program supplies direct access to those experiences, via a custom-designed program of classes, activities, and events imagined with your happiness in mind.
The best part: you get to have fun and learn something to recreate those vacation feels and blow your friends’ and neighbors’ minds back home. Better than a commemorative shot glass?
We think so.
Appoint an in-house guacamole expert
With the Top Chef Jr. Mexico® package, your littlest chefs can quite literally cut their teeth on making this Mexican favorite from scratch. Get into the habit of maintaining an at-home avocado supply, and you’ll never have to pay extra at Chipotle again.
Embrace armchair ornithology
AKA bird studies: the focus of the bird watching class included in The Mas The Merrier package. Not only does bird watching allow you to relax and connect more mindfully with your natural surroundings—it’s a thing you can do for free once you’re back to your daily life! Think of it as a very sustainable, portable chill pill.
Shake up your happy hour
The Playa Date package is all about enabling connection, and the only thing better than being your own bartender is stirring up the person you love. Learn from Latin America’s best resident mixologists how and when to shake, spritz, and swizzle, and your future date nights will never leave the house.
Bust a brand new move
For those of us who aren’t metabolizing margaritas like we used to, the Mind, Body & Sol package’s Zumba class offers a much-needed cardio boost. And you don’t need equipment to keep the rhythm moving long after you’ve landed back home! You just need music, muscle memory, and the house to yourself.
You already have great taste. You are one lesson away from blindly discerning Gamay from Garnacha. Luckily the Top Chef Mexico® wine tasting class is here to help you unlock that next level of oenophilic achievement. Swirl and sip ocean-side, and never go blank in the wine aisle again.
