Every February 14, Valentine’s Day is celebrated in many regions around the world with great enthusiasm. While there are conflicting stories about its origins, one thing is certain and that is that for many it is a very special day devoted to celebrating love as well as friendship.
One version is that Valentine’s Day is a very old tradition originating from the Roman festival Lupercalia, which celebrated the start of spring in mid-February and paired couples through a lottery. Another version is that, Emperor Claudius the Second banned all marriages in Rome as he thought that emotional attachments would cause his soldiers to not want to serve in the army. Saint Valentine opposed the decree of the emperor, and began secretly helping Christian couples wed. When his actions were discovered, he was sentenced to death on February 14, 270.
Regardless of the true origins, Valentine’s Day is unarguably the one special day of the year devoted entirely to celebrating romantic love and friendship. Garza Blanca Preserve Resort & Spa Puerto Vallarta is excited to share this special day with its valued members and guests and is pleased to offer an exclusive romantic beach dinner in a spectacular setting.
Indulge with your sweetheart in a special 4-course menu created by Chef Eder Gutierrez from Aquazul. On this occasion, we will offer our All Inclusive, European Plan and Meal Plan guests the opportunity to experience a beautiful evening on the beach where the romantic atmosphere and delicious menu will create a truly memorable Valentine’s Day in 2020.
As spaces are limited with a maximum of 40 couples, it is essential to make reservations in advance to ensure you will not miss out on this year’s unique Valentine’s Day experience. There will be three seatings with the option to make a reservation at 7:00 pm, 8:00 pm, or 9:00 pm.
For those wishing to spoil their sweetheart with an intimate romantic dinner on the beach, we have private seating available for 3 couples with a cost of $350 USD per couple. The cost includes a 4-course menu by our Chef Antonio Martinez of Blanca Blue and a bottle of Möet Chandon. The menu will feature a premium selection of dishes that are not available on the regular menu.
The private beach dinner will start at 6:00 pm giving guests the opportunity to watch the golden sun set over Banderas Bay. Once the sky turns dark, fire torches will be lit on our beautiful Garza Blanca beach creating an incredibly romantic atmosphere to share with the one you love.
