Once again Garza Blanca Resort & Spa and Hotel Mousai in Puerto Vallarta will be hosting a cultural medley and celebration of Mexico’s traditions and artistry with Hecho en Mexico (Made in Mexico) 2017.

You can expect to sample the varied and delectable flavors of Mexico not just for the taste buds but for all the senses: expect music, expect art, expect dancing, expect that unbeatable Mexican atmosphere.
Time to celebrate Mexico’s rich traditions
A series of inspiring happenings will launch on Friday May 5th, 2017 in honor of the Mexican national holiday, Cinco de Mayo, which commemorates the Battle of Puebla (Franco-Mexican War from 1861-1867), and will continue throughout the month of May, with a special Mexican Festival being held on Saturday May 20th that is open to both guests at the hotels as well as locals who wish to purchase tickets for the special event.
A renowned guest chef from Mexico will also be joining in the cultural celebration, presenting a special Mexican menu.
Local Arts, Crafts and Delicacies Each weekend throughout May
Garza Blanca Preserve and Hotel Mousai will be inviting guests at the hotels to enjoy an exposition of local fare and crafts each weekend throughout May in the Lobby at Garza Blanca Resort & Spa. Products such as Mexican wine, chocolate, tequila, mezcal, Mexican cigars, jewelry, pottery, folk art, and finger painting will feature, providing an insight into Mexico’s artisan culture.
Mexican Festival Saturday May 20th
Hecho en Mexico will also host a special Mexican festival on Saturday May 20th from 6pm until 10pm to honor Mexico’s roots, which will welcome guest of honor, fashion designer Maria Rosario Mendoza to showcase her Takasami label, presenting a collection that exudes authentic Mexican flare and artistry.
To accompany the festival, there will be music that will take you on a cultural voyage with traditional Mariachis serenading your ears as well as pre-Hispanic musicians to awaken your connection with the earth and the cosmos. To complete the Mexican experience, a traditional Mexican lasso performer (charro lazo) and dancing horses will bring yet another Mexican custom to the show while educational documentaries about the history of Puerto Vallarta and Mexico will entertain guests.
