Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Restaurant Week keeps registrations open for its 14th edition, taking place this year. The event, which is organized by Vallarta Lifestyles Media Group, will implement a few changes in benefit of both diners and participating restaurants.
First and most important, the festival will now run from May 15 to June 10. Tourist and locals will have ten more days to try the wide variety of gastronomy, for which our destination is world renown.
As each year, the festival will be sponsored by the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board.
"This event was created to provide locals with the opportunity to enjoy the local gastronomy and stimulate economic activity in a month that was, back then, considered as low season. Nowadays, May has more activity in our region thanks to this and other events that have emerged with the pass of time. However, Restaurant Week remains as one of the most prominent," points out Juan Pablo Hernández, the event's coordinator.
