Mother’s Day in Mexico is taken to the next level. It is an observance and not a public holiday but some public offices have been known to close early in the afternoon so employees can spend some of the day with their mothers and schools usually have special programs.
Mothers and mother figures are given flowers, cards, candy and other gifts that symbolize appreciation, respect and love. This is also an opportunity to take your favorite female figure out for a fabulous meal.
Austrian restaurant Kaiser Maximilian in Puerto Vallarta is offering a wonderful three course dinner for $466 pesos. Executive Chef Juan Carlos Palomer has created some wonderful selections especially for the occasion.
This special menu is served from noon to 11pm at Espresso Bar and 6 to 11pm in The Main Dining Room. The regular a la carte menu is also available.
