Guests at the Garza Blanca Resort & Spa and Hotel Mousai in Puerto Vallarta will have plenty of options when it comes to things to do; however, one of the most romantic and thought provoking activities for conscious couples is the ZenWalk.
Garza Blanca Preserve’s ZenWalk
The grounds of the Garza Blanca Preserve are dotted with stunning sculptures which were bought by Garza Blanca’s owner and director on his travels. These statues are now displayed for your enjoyment throughout the lush, tropical landscape. Some are easy to find, like those on the pathway to the Hotel Mousai and BocaDos STK restaurant or those at the poolside, while some are hidden further into the grounds. You can visit them individually, or see them in order as they have been placed strategically to allow the most advantageous circulation of energy.
Mini Guide for Lovers
So that you can experience this unique attraction the way it was meant to be experienced, you can follow a mini guide which has a map, shows you a route and gives you a short description of each of the statues. When you follow this guide you can turn the ZenWalk into a walking meditation or a romantic walk.
How to use the route as a walking meditation?
As you might imagine a walking meditation involves using the action of walking and the act of regulating your breathing to turn the focus inwards and centre your awareness on the immediate experience. While taking the ZenWalk you should try to become more acutely aware of your senses and to tune into the elements of the world around you. By doing so you can begin your journey towards achieving a state of inner peace and harmony.
When you participate in the Garza Blanca Preserve Zen Walk you will move from sculpture to sculpture, absorbing the smells and sights around you, stopping to contemplate each statue and its position in the overall story. At various points you will be able to rest at a bench in order to reflect upon what you have seen already.
