If food is an important factor when you select a tourist destination, Puerto Vallarta is a great option. Its wide range of cuisine choices presents magnificent culinary experiences for every palate and pocket.
Puerto Vallarta has been named the Gourmet beach city in Mexico, deservedly so, as its diversity is so wide that it is able to satisfy any craving.
If you prefer simple food, the city is filled with charming outdoor cafes and family style restaurants; on the other hand, if you prefer something more sophisticated, there are many award-winning restaurants that offer delicious gourmet dishes.
Puerto Vallarta stands out at different times of the year, by organizing events to promote local and international cuisines. In March, the “Wine Fest” is an excellent opportunity for sampling and learning about wines from Mexico and from all over the world, as well as experiencing wonderful wines and pairings.
In May, during the two week long “Restaurant Week”, the best restaurants of the area offer incredible three course meals at affordable prices. Every year in November the “Gourmet Festival” brings chefs from all over the world here, to prepare delicacies to satisfy the most sophisticated palate.
