- Preparations are underway for the 16th edition of this gastronomic festival. Organizers are reaching out to regional restaurants to join this magnificent celebration.
Restaurant Week is back for 2020 with its 16th edition ready to celebrate the region’s gastronomy during an event where residents and visitors can enjoy a variety of great food at very good prices.
Restaurants in the Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta are being invited to participate in the event, which is organized by the Vallarta Lifestyles Media Group with the backing of the Riviera Nayarit Conventions and Visitors Bureau (CVB), as well as diverse authorities from Puerto Vallarta.
“Restaurant Week is stronger and better than ever. The success of this culinary event has come about thanks to the support of a growing number of participating restaurants. Every year they surprise and seduce the palates of the attendees who bring this festival to life; this is an event that has been held without interruption for 16 straight years,” said Luis Mendoza, operations director for Vallarta Lifestyles Media Group.
The event is promoted nationally and internationally by the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau every year; it also receives support from different authorities in Puerto Vallarta. This year, it will also be sponsored by Cristalería del Pacífico, a company from Puerto Vallarta with over 30 years’ experience and is one of the best distributors of equipment for internationally-renowned restaurants and hotel chains.

The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association (AHMBB) work intensely to promote the destination with the support of the Government of the State of Nayarit via its Tourism Promotional Trust (Fiprotur).
