There's nothing more appealing than a cute and cuddly kitten, but when Mommy cats are popping out an average of five kittens a litter it becomes impossible for any community to care for each and every one.

Three promising Optimist sailors from the state of Nayarit have been selected to represent Mexico in international competitions during July 2013.

The ninth annual Vallarta Lifestyles' Restaurant Week will be held May 15-31 and features 35 restaurants located in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit. Each of the participating restaurants offer a special three-course menu (with three choices per course) at a fixed price of $189 or $299 pesos per person, with drinks and tips not included. It is a great way to try some of the best restaurants at reduced prices. This not-to-be missed restaurant event encourages residents and visitors to explore the area's unique culinary diversity. Bistro Organico, located in the courtyard of the Hotel Cielo Rojo in San Pancho, is a new participant in Restaurant Week 2013.
