July 4, 2019

The Riviera Nayarit has entertainment options for everyone. Visitors to the area will find a safe paradise for rest, relaxation, and fun, where they can take it easy and enjoy nature.
What sets this destination apart from all the others is the number and quality of events it hosts throughout the year. Sporting, culinary, musical, and eco-events are just part of the variety of activities that visitors can enjoy in Mexico’s Pacific Treasure and its 23 coastal villages.
Below is a selection of the top events for July:
Mita Culinary Month (June 15 – July 15)
Four restaurants from Punta de Mita in the Riviera Nayarit have come together to participate in the first edition of Mita Culinary Month, created by chefs Héctor Leyva and Iván Bautista, chef and sous chef for Hector’s Kitchen. Babela’s, Hector’s Kitchen, Pacífico Grill Latino, and Punta Mercedes are presenting their culinary proposals from June 15 through July 15, 2019, with three-course menus brimming with texture, color, and flavor — a hallmark culinary offer from Punta Mita, Riviera Nayarit, one of the most recognized and awarded destinations in the world.

Punta Mita Chef’s Table Summer Series (July 5-6)

After its resounding success earlier this year, Punta Mita is all set for the Punta Mita Chef’s Table Summer Series, to be held at the Pacífico Beach Club on Friday, July 5 and Saturday, July 6, with special guest Gastón Yelicich. Gastón will serve a selection of signature dishes from his restaurant Cuatro Mares in Punta del Este, Uruguay. Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity!

Along with its unparalleled surroundings and luxury lifestyle, Punta Mita continues to shine as one of the golf and gastronomy capitals of Mexico and one of the top hotspots in the world.

13th Bahía de Banderas Marlin and Tuna Tournament (July 18-20)
Organized by the Bahía de Banderas Fishing Club, this traditional sport fishing event returns to the waters offshore the Riviera Nayarit on July 18-20, 2019. Nuevo Vallarta’s Vallarta Yacht Club will host this tournament, which attracts the best fishermen in Mexico and abroad.

Experts consider Mexico’s Pacific Treasure as one of the top destinations for sport fishing. There is a fantastic diversity of marine species along its 300-kilometer (186-mile) coastline that guarantees excellent catches any time of the year.

VII Sea Turtle Festival (July 20 – 21)

It’s turtle nesting and hatchling liberating season on Playa Platanitos — a coastal village in the Riviera Nayarit located in the municipality of Compostela — which means everyone is preparing for the VII Sea Turtle Festival, held July 20-21, 2019. The goal for the event is to promote environmental awareness and the conservation of the sea turtle, besides boosting tourism in a community with less than 100 inhabitants who live mostly from commerce, fishing, and sustainable tourism.

The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) supports more than 80 events of all kinds via its Groups and Events desk throughout the year. These actions markedly increase the number of visitors, benefitting the region’s entire tourism service industry.
