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.

Riviera Nayarit Wind Festival (May 19 - 31)
This is without a doubt one of the destination’s anchor festivals and it’s among the top 10 best of the year thanks to its wow factor, the amount of participants and, above all, the perfect conditions for kitesurfing in both Bucerías and La Cruz de Huanacaxtle.

Jarretaderas Shore Fishing Festival (May 21)
Shore fishing tournaments are held year round in different villages around the Riviera Nayarit, with Jarretaderas next on the list. The entire purpose of the exercise is for families to come together and have a great time while the participants show off their fishing skills.

Mountain bike lovers rejoice: this is your perfect event, which combines the beach at Litibú with the mountain at Higuera Blanca for an amazing event. Cyclists 18 years and older are welcome to ride till the wheels come off!
