Five top Mexican chefs are coming to the Grand Velas Riviera Maya for a major menu event this fall.

Chefs Zahie Téllez, Carlos Gaytan, Francisco Ruano, and Mikel Alonso, some of the Mexican culinary world’s top chefs, are heading to the all-inclusive hotel from Oct. 5-9 for “The Best of Mexico Riviera Maya.”

The event is a special 10-course tasting menu that will be offered over the four nights. Better yet? It’s included in the daily rate for all guests staying at the property.
