If you’re home because of the health crisis due to COVID-19, you’re working from home and you have no time to cook, or you simply wish to enjoy a taste of your favorite restaurant, worry not! In the Riviera Nayarit, we bring the restaurant to your house!
The Riviera Nayarit Restaurant Association (ARRN) is following the global “Stay at Home” guideline, joining the #StayHomeWithRivieraNayarit hashtag that the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Banderas Bay Hotel and Motel Association (AHMBB) have championed since the beginning of the health crisis. The ARRN has provided a list of places that are still open and offering take-out service or home delivery.
This is, undoubtedly, an excellent way of supporting local business as it opens the opportunity to attract clients who can help alleviate the difficulties the COVID-19 has created in the economy of this tourist destination.
Gastronomy has always played an important part in the tourism promotion of Mexico’s Pacific Treasure, it is one of its biggest attractions thanks to the quality of its restaurants and chefs, who offer new experiences to diners, locals, and visitors.
In this respect, Marc Murphy, managing director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau, had this to say:
“These unprecedented times have presented the Riviera Nayarit with the opportunity to showcase its unmatched hospitality, unique to our destination. Even from afar, the tourist sector of the Riviera Nayarit is more united than ever.”
For his part, the president of the ARRN, Mario Nasser highlighted:
"We know how much you will miss going out to your favorite restaurants this season, so we have decided to take the restaurant to your home, so you don't stop enjoying its dishes."
The list includes options for all tastes and budgets: Meats and fine cuts, traditional Mexican cuisine, international cuisine, Italian cuisine, Mediterranean and Lebanese cuisine, Asian cuisine, seafood, hamburgers, roasted chickens and Cajun-style chickens, burritas, tacos, barbecue and much more.
It should be noted that the takeaway and home delivery option is an alternative to apps like Uber Eats.
Remember that you must follow official recommendations to prevent the spread of the disease, even when according to health authorities there is no evidence of infection through food. However, it is suggested to keep your distance when receiving the order and to do it with clean hands so as not to put the risk to the person who delivers or to yourself.
