A Taste of Riviera Nayarit

When traditional ingredients meet the innovative hands of Mexico’s Chef Betty Vazquez, beautiful things happen. As the culinary ambassador of Riviera Nayarit, a new vacation destination blessed with everything from quaint beachfront eateries to sophisticated haute cuisine restaurants, Vazquez puts a unique fusion spin on local fare. Watch below for her demonstration on making an easy and fresh halibut ceviche bursting with the citrus-y flavours of both lime and orange.

Riviera Nayarit stretches along 192 miles of Pacific coast and is framed by the Sierra Madre mountains just ten minutes north of Puerto Vallarta International Airport. It is home to several resorts and its tropical waters teem with red snapper, marlin, grouper, yellow fin tuna, mahi mahi shrimp and oysters making it a seafood lover’s paradise.

If it’s a luxurious and exclusive experience you’re after head straight to the Punta Mita resort for sunset dinners and elegant restaurants offering “Mexiterranean” menus. Make a bee line to the Bohemian Sayulita for an artsy crowd and Baja-style fish tacos, guacamole and quesadillas. And find Chef Vazquez’s fine cuisine in San Blas at the El Delfin restaurant within Hotel Garza Canela. As the head of this kitchen, the Cordon Bleu trained chef’s offerings will delight your tastebuds with Mexican favourites executed with classic European techniques.
