Riviera Nayarit Continues to Entertain with Exciting Events in May
Every month the Groups Desk at the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau helps out with the organization of events to increase the number of activities that can be enjoyed in the destination. In the month of May, these serve to extend the high season that begins in April with Holy Week and Easter.
Patron Saint Feast of the Holy Cross (May 3)
This religious tradition welcomes all the people of the towns in the region of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle to enjoy a lovely festival in the village’s main plaza.
International Altruism Festival (May 14)
This festival has been around for many years, looking to help different associations that provide aid to the people of the Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta. This time around it will be held at the Marriott hotel with music and food in an environment of solidarity.
Restaurant Week (May 15 - 31)
This restaurant festival takes place for two weeks in the Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta, where culinary outlets will offer three-course prix fixe menus. It’s a fantastic opportunity to try out new eateries.
