What to expect from this tour?

More Than Tacos – We go beyond tacos and include mole enchiladas, ceviche tostada, savory soup, regional chocolate, a seafood taco, and a birria taco from one of the best taco stands in Vallarta. We even stop by a tortilleria, which is a fresh tortilla bakery.

A Culinary Tour With A Bit Of History – We share the story behind the food, including the history of each restaurant and regional Mexican dish. We also share some of the highlights of Vallarta’s rich culture.

Why take this tour?

  1. Experience Authentic Mexico. With over 1,000 restaurants to choose from in Vallarta, it can be overwhelming to decide where to eat. We introduce you to the local gems serving the best regional cuisine our city has to offer.
  2. Something For Everyone. The downtown Vallarta food tour is the perfect shore excursion for your day at port, a fun way to spend a few hours outside of your all-inclusive and is ideal for anyone looking for a small-group tour that isn’t too touristy. We see a lot of snowbirds and ex-pats on this tour too.
  3. Foodie Fun. If you love to eat this is the tour for you. Take your tour early in your vacation so that you can return to the spots you enjoyed most. Make a few new foodie friends along the way!
