The Festival Gourmet International originated 13 years ago when a lively conversation arose between Thierry Blouet of Café de Artistes, Heinz Reize of Hotel Krystal and Silvan Miller of Nestlé. It was then that they came up with the idea of holding a ten-day festival to showcase the richness and diversity of Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit’s culinary scene. Each year, chefs from across the globe gather together at the festival, not in competition, but rather in a friendly exchange of extraordinary dishes.
This year, the XVI Festival Gourmet International will be held November 11th through November 21st and boast local master chefs from first-class hotels and innovative restaurants including a chef from Dreams Villamagna.

Located on the tip of the Baja Peninsula, the town of Los Cabos resides where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean. Breathtaking beaches line the resort area of Los Cabos, making it one of the most popular west coast destinations in Mexico. Two towns, lively Cabo San Lucas and laid-back San Jose del Cabo, flank the resort corridor.
While the nightlife in San Jose del Cabo centers around the restaurants and large hotels, Cabo San Lucas is the party capital of Los Cabos. Visitors there can enjoy a wide variety of nightclubs as well as casual and fine dining options.
Once a small fishing town, Los Cabos is now known as the sport fishing capital of the world. It is home to many big game fish including marlin, sailfish, wahoo, dorado and yellowtail, snapper, cabrilla, corvina and roosterfish. If you are looking for a challenge you may want to consider joining in on one of the many fishing tournaments hosted by the marina throughout the year.
If you happen to be in Los Cabos during the winter you can also admire one of the most extraordinary natural phenomena to occur on Mexico’s coasts– the courtship process of the gray whale. It is estimated that 20,000 of these whales migrate to the Mexican coast each year. Learn more about whale watching on the Pacific Coast of Mexico here.
