Celebrate National Guacamole Day Fairmont Mayakoba Style

Did you know that Guacamole is Aztec for “Avocado Sauce”? This Mexican treat has delighted our palates for quite some time now to the point of having its own national day. Guacamole comes in all types of flavors and presentations, there are truly so many ways of eating it but the thing we all agree is that it is delicious!

Every September 16th in the United States, Guacamole is celebrated throughout the country and interesting enough, it comes one day after Mexico’s Independence Day so you can bet that a guacamole feast takes place during mid-September, no matter the occasion.

This year is different in many aspects but what a better way to bring some joy and spice to our “new” daily lives with some guac & chips. That’s why at Fairmont Mayakoba, we want you to celebrate with us, no matter if you are traveling with us or staying at home. We guarantee you will enjoy authentic Guacamole paired with delicious spicy Margaritas to celebrate National Guacamole Day.

At Fairmont Mayakoba we want you to party big, so we have a true Mexican dinner ready for you to celebrate with us. Located on our white sand beach, on September 15th you can savor different stations of typical Mexican and regional food. Let’s start with some delicious panuchos and tamales, then delight yourself with Achiote Chicken and Poc Chuc Pork or even grilled octopus, pozole, and quesadillas with handmade tortillas. For dessert, you cannot miss the famous marquesitas, typical of the region. And if this weren’t enough, a variety of margaritas, beers, and aguas frescas will be available to say Salud!
