A feast of flavors will be held at Paradise Village in Riviera Nayarit between October 17 and 20, when the Vallarta-Nayarit Gastronómica will take place, a celebration around the high level of cuisine that can be found in this region and that also offers lectures, tastings, expos, food samples, competitions and cooking shows.

This was announced on Wednesday September 25 during a press conference offered by Grupo Excelencias, event organizer, at the host hotel where they also said that they expect approximately 800 participants to the seminars.

"This is an event that reaches its fifth edition, which is not easy as we all know. But it's a fifth edition in which we have grown substantially in quantity and quality", said Carlos Elizondo, of the organization.

"This growth is possible thanks to the sum of wills. In truth we have to thank many people who are participating. We could not do an event of this caliber without the support of many people, "Consuelo Elipe meanwhile pointed out the joint promotional effort of Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit, which is shown in events of this transcendence.

The president of the Association of Hotels and Motels in Bahia de Banderas, Fernando González Ortega, stressed the importance of food as an attraction that shares the Vallarta-Nayarit region and said that events like this not only attract visitors, but contribute to the training and continuous improvement of the cuisine of the region, which in turn reinforces the other promotional activities.

"Among the most important aspects is that the staff of the restaurants and the hotels has this exposure to new things, and the motivation to serve with more passion to provide better products. Remember that one of the main areas of tourism promotion of Vallarta-Nayarit is the food, so it is also very important to involve educational institutions", said Ortega.

Vallarta-Nayarit Gastronómica, in addition to the demonstrations, tastings and gala dinner; in the educational part, features curricular recognition, which will be supported by the Universidad del Valle de Atemajac (Univa).

The Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) of Riviera Nayarit is a non profit civil association that operates under the auspices of the Association of Hotels and Motels of Banderas Bay to promote the Riviera Nayarit.
