The fabulous four-day culinary events will unfold as follows:

La Catrina Cuisine and Couture at Breathless Riviera Cancun

26 September - from 08:00 PM to 11:00 PM

The first of the four separate events will be inspired by Mexico's famous Day of the Dead, more particularly its main female icon, known as "La Catrina". This very special evening and night combines elements of Mexican art, food cultural iconography and fashion in a unique way, led by designer Eder Sotelo Millan, who will present his latest La Catrina collection on the catwalk as Chef Lalo Plascencia simultaneously serves up sophisticated culinary delicacies with distinct,authentic Mexican flavours.

Seafood Festival at Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun

27 September - from 06:30 PM to 10:00 PM

Starting earlier than the previous day's culinary events, this one will enjoy a stunning location facing one of the best beaches in the world (as voted and ranked by the Travel Channel) with Chef Alfredo Heredia hosting the evening's activities and in charge of the fresh seafood delicacies, expertly prepared with a generous dose of Mexican flair.

Flavours of the Yucatan Beer Festival at Secrets Akumal Riviera Maya

28 September - from 05:00 PM to 11:00 PM

The longest-lasting culinary event of this festival, the afternoon starts with the option to puff up on one of the best cigars in the world, a Cuban Habanero, as the perfect pairing to a tantalising tasting session, overseen by Top Chef Mexico judge, Juantxo Sanchez. Add to this a sumptuous dinner perfectly complemented with a selection of more than 50 different types of beer, including 15 craft beers from the region and a lively serenade by live Mariachi bands and you have the perfect recipe for a sensorial Mexican experience you won't forget.

Emociones Gala Dinner at Secrets The Vine Cancun

29 September - from 07:00 PM to 11:00 PM

This evening kicks off with a session of artisan tequila and mezcal tastings, followed by a gourmet, six-course gala dinner to bring the festival to a close with a bang. The gourmet delights will be prepared by Chef Sergio Camacho, Chef Josefina Santacruz and Chef Lalo Plascencia while AMResorts makes the most of the special occasion to launch and introduce you to its first, very own Mexican wine - "Emociones". An evening full of emotions, no doubt!
