Puerto Vallarta Botanical Gardens is bringing back their successful Pig Roast day on January 30, a unique opportunity to enjoy the delicious pork pibil dish, flan for dessert and a drink, for only $160 pesos. Pig roast or cochinita pibil is a traditional Mexican slow-roasted pork from the state of Yucatán. The Mayan word “pibil” means “buried,” and traditionally it involves marinating a whole baby pig and burying it in a pit with a fire at the bottom to roast it. At the Gardens, preparations begin the day before and the meat is cooked overnight. The dish is served with a generous serving of mashed potatoes, beans, and two separate salsas, barbeque and chipotle-based.
The Puerto Vallarta Botanical Gardens is located 35 minutes south of Puerto Vallarta and are easily accessible by car or public transportation. Find out more about one of the best Puerto Vallarta attractions by visiting www.vallartabotanicalgardensac.org.
