The exquisite fusion of Mexican flavors was once again celebrated in the tenth edition of Culinaria Mexicana’s Guía México Gastronómico (Mexico Gastronomic Guide). This year, with the sponsorship of Larousse Cocina, S. Pellegrino and Nespresso, the award ceremony brought together the crème de la crème of the national culinary scene at the Hotel Presidente Intercontinental in Mexico City on January 21st, 2024.

Renowned for its impartiality and rigor, this guide boasts a panel of 70 experts, including specialized journalists, sommeliers, influencers and food lovers, who tirelessly travel the country in search of the most authentic tastes and memorable gastronomic experiences.

In this edition, Vallarta · Nayarit shone brightly as some of its culinary establishments were highlighted as some of the best in the country. In Puerto Vallarta, emblematic names such as Café des Artistes, Icú, Makal and Tintoque were recognized for their unparalleled quality, creativity and service. Recognized not only for their gastronomic excellence, but also for the consistency and sensory experiences they offer their guests, these restaurants have established the region as a top culinary destination.

On the other hand, Punta de Mita presented its high-caliber gastronomic offerings: Codex at Conrad and Hector’s Kitchen, restaurants known for their innovation and commitment to local and global flavors, in addition to providing an experience that includes creativity and high-quality service.

Each award-winning restaurant is a living testament to the talent and passion that drives the country’s culinary industry, attracting national and international diners in search of unforgettable experiences.

In this way, Culinaria Mexicana’s Guía México Gastronómico illuminates and celebrates the flavors, traditions, and creativity that make the Mexican table a true feast for the senses.

“Vallarta Lifestyles, from its inception has been a quality reference. In some way, it has managed to consolidate the destination because all our restaurants where there and we communicate as an exchange platform. The benefit, besides advertisement and recommendation, is that this publication is a solid copy of Puerto Vallarta’s evolution. If you pick up an old issue, immediately you’ll recall precious memories.”

"Since we started the company we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles, a publication that is considered ‘Puerto Vallarta’s Magazine’ by the quality of its images, content and staff, unique characteristics that encouraged us to say: ‘We have to be in Vallarta Lifestyles’. We know that this magazine is a reference for the target market that we are looking for and we know that being there gives us prestige.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles speaks for itself, it’s a good quality publication with great image, that’s why we have advertised since we started our business. Without any doubt, it is the most read magazine. Its articles and advertising are target to the audience we’re looking for. Vallarta Lifestyles has grown the same way Puerto Vallarta has.”
