Discover Puerto Vallarta's delectable side as you taste its authentic flavors. Choose between 3 exciting food tours led by charismatic local guides, featuring genuine tacos, sweets, and artisanal ice cream. This memorable experience combines delicious bites, history, culture, and sightseeing.

The Original Downtown Vallarta Tour
Embark on a comprehensive 3-hour tour that takes you to 10 tasting locations, including small, family-run restaurants and taco stands. The following mouthwatering eats—enough for a lunch—and drinks are included:

  • Traditional soup from the state of Michoacán
  • Tacos de birria (meat stew marinated in chiles) and de carne asada (grilled beef)
  • Ceviche (fish or seafood cooked in lime juice)
  • Fresh tortillas, directly from the conveyor belt
  • Mole sauces (consisting of numerous ingredients) and tequila, of course
  • Tuba (a refreshing coconut drink)
  • Mexican candies and artisanal chocolate

The Street: An Evening Taco Adventure
This tour is the perfect introduction to Mexico’s universal dish—the taco. Hop on a city bus to explore the best taquerías in downtown Vallarta, where you can enjoy an interactive and entertaining dinner spread across 9 different locations. Get ready for a variety of yummy tacos, including fish, carne asada (grilled beef), cabeza (head), and the famous pastor (marinated pork). In addition, taste the pozole soup, and sip some mezcal, which is similar to tequila, before wrapping up the evening with a sweet churro.

The Taste of Pitillal Food Tour
Head off the beaten path by venturing to the Pitillal neighborhood, a part of town less frequented by visitors. Follow your guide to 9 tasting locations, where you indulge in carnitas (slow-cooked pork), tacos de carne asada, birria (marinated meat stew), and fresh seafood. La Tianita restaurant serves delicious tamales, an ancient dish that originated in the Mayan Empire.

Sweeten up your afternoon with fresh paletas (popsicles), churros, and organic fruit and vegetables.
