Relax in Mexico

Robin Raven writes about her Wellness Getaway in the Riviera Nayarit

As my plane landed at the Puerto Vallarta International Airport, I felt a bit overwhelmed with excitement. I’d long wanted to visit Mexico, and to be there for a wellness getaway was just what I needed. Ironically, I had gotten a cold the night before, but I was determined to not let that stop a bit of my fun. After all, where better to be when you’re feeling a little under the weather than a trip that’s focused on wellness?

My getaway was in the Nayarit state, one of the smallest of the 31 states of Mexico, on the beautiful west coast. The Riveriera Nayarit is a 200 mile stretch of coastline and it is well known for its stunning beaches, bird watching and as a great stretch for surfers. If you are looking to visit a more rural and isolated part of Mexico, the Nayarit Riviera may be the perfect destination for you — it is far less populated than other parts of Mexico. Along the coast there are many attractions including colonial Tepic, volcanic El Ceboruco and the Salto de Jala waterfall, but my visit was focused on wellness and therefore I made my way to the AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to the February issue of Vegan Life! We have a super issue for you, packed with articles, recipes and interviews. We have spoken to activist Joey Carbstrong about his journey from doing time in a high security prison to animal welfare campaigner. His story is truly inspirational and evidence that it is never too late to move towards a compassionate lifestyle. We also have a wonderful interview with Lucy Holland, AKA Moocylu’s Designs, about her artistic style and some of the problems she has encountered on social media. One of our special features this month focuses on vegan butters and cheeses. Less than five years ago, it was near impossible to find a good cheddar replacement, let alone replacements for haloumi, parmesan, feta and camembert. Now, there are so many vegan cheeses that you are able to make a whole cheeseboard with different flavours, strengths and textures, but without any of the cruelty associated with traditional dairy. We have also put together a roundup of what you can expect from this year’s Vegan Life Live London, which is being held at Alexandra Palace on the 10th and 11th of February. We have shone the spotlight on some of the amazing talks, food, stalls and cookery demonstrations which will be taking place at Vegan Life Live to get you even more excited before the event! Finally, we were lucky enough to speak to an animal rights activist about the rescue of a piglet called Bella from a factory farm in Australia. Bella (who turned out to be male) was in an atrocious state when he was found, but some wonderful people rescued and cared for him and he is now on the road to recovery. With Christmas out of the way and Valentine’s Day on the way, it is the perfect time to stop and consider how we can all be a little more loving, and compassionate to the animals we share this earth with. As ever, please do get in touch and let us know what you are up to. We love to hear from our wonderful readers.
