About Restaurant Week
Organized by Vallarta Lifestyles Media Group with the support of the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board and the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau; Restaurant Week was born in 2005 inspired by other culinary festivals around the world. At that time, it aimed to boost the local economy in a month that was considered low season. Today, May is a very active month in which several flagship events take place, where Restaurant Week is one of the most anticipated and consolidated. For this reason, from last year, extended its duration to almost four weeks.
