New Margarita Pedicure Offered at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit's Award-Winning Spa

MIAMI, Fla., Aug. 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mexico's AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit is now offering guests a new refreshing and authentic Mexican spa treatment for the toes, the Margarita Pedicure. The pedicure begins with a ground coffee bean detox exfoliation increasing circulation to feet, preparing the senses for the following 20-minute massage focusing on the feet's main reflexology points, and continues with a mud mask of local herbal extracts. The mud mask contains a concentrated extract of Mexican herbs with anti-inflammatory properties to relax and refresh feet, including chia seeds, amaranth grains, prickly pear cactus and blue agave, the main ingredient of tequila. During the Margarita Pedicure guests relax in a hydro-massage lounge chair and enjoy a fresh, complimentary Strawberry Spa Margarita, with or without alcohol based on request. The 80-minute treatment costs $110 USD. For more information on spa specials, visit For reservations or more information, please call 877-418-2963 or visit
