Puerto Vallarta’s rich natural ingredients and beauty have been a source of inspiration for the creation of an exciting amalgam of flavors that blend traditional Mexican ingredients with contemporary tastes from around the globe. Visitors will find some of the world’s most fabulous restaurants, many of them Five Star Diamond Award recipients from the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences, offering menus that represent a combination of the destination’s unique mix of sea, mountains and colonial traditions.

The statue is engraved with the winners of the San Pascual awards, inspired by a Franciscan Friar and been give out since 2008 during Restaurant Week, held every year, during the last two weeks of May.
