Restaurant Week History
Restaurant Week was founded in 2005 inspired by gastronomic festivals from other major tourist destinations around the globe. When it was established, Restaurant Week had the aim of boosting the local economy in a month that was already considered as low season. Nowadays, May is a very active month in which many events take place, Restaurant Week being one of the most expected and consolidated. For this reason, last year the event extended to almost 4 weeks.

The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association (AHMBB) work intensively to promote the destination with the support of the Government of the State of Nayarit via its Tourism Promotional Trust (Fiprotur). The culinary tourism offer in the region is a key asset for these promotional activities.
