Ceviche and aguachile are two classic seafood dishes that are very popular on Mexico’s west coast, where they are gaining acceptance among tourists visiting Puerto Vallarta and other similar destinations. Ceviche, a well-known seafood dish throughout Latin America (especially Mexico and Peru), is usually made from raw fish or fresh seafood, dried in lemon juice and spiced with peppers. Ceviche can also be seasoned with onions, salt and cilantro. For its part, Aguachile—considered the lesser-known cousin of Ceviche—is a dish originating from the Sinaloa region, which is made with shrimp, soaked in a broth seasoned with peppers, salt, lemon, coriander and fresh vegetables. .

Some of the most important seafood restaurants in the Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit region will participate in this third edition of the Ceviche and Aguachile Festival: lamarablue tuna, Cuates and Cuettes, happy donkeys, taco wheels, Bob Chelero, The Prime beer box and buzzos. In addition to promoting the cultural and social importance of these dishes in Mexican cuisine, expert chefs will delight attendees with a wide variety of Ceviche and Aguachile styles.

The Ceviche and Aguachile Festival will take place in Plaza Lázaro Cárdenas on Friday, January 27 from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Locals and tourists visiting Puerto Vallarta are invited to enjoy this culinary event where they will have the chance to try these tasty seafood dishes.
