Start your street food tour at a central location and discover what makes Puerto Vallarta a top destination for lovers of Mexican cuisine. Sink your teeth into beef birria, a traditional breakfast dish and tasty Jalisco specialty made from one family’s secret recipe.

Carnitas (braised pork) and tacos dorado (deep-fried tacos) are next on the menu, followed by a behind-the-scenes look at a local treasure where you’ll find fresh-baked breads and sample hot-off-the-grill corn tortillas.

Browse produce stalls at the market and learn about a plethora of chiles before crunching into a ceviche tostada and fish taco. Hop between taco stands for a taste of a seafood chile relleno taco and a shrimp brochette. Top it off with a tender pork quesadilla and be sure to save room for dessert — Michoacán-style sorbet or ice cream — before ending your walking tour at a candy shop.

Terrific Taco tour
Jenny_C

First of all I would like to say that you should not eat before you go on this tour! We got to see a lot of old town by visiting several taco stands, restaurants and markets. We were fortunate to have the same tour guide Manuel/Manny, four years later. It was great going on a tour with Manny because it felt very comfortable, like he was an old friend giving us a tour. He was especially helpful on finding me vegetarian food. We had green juice, and then he let me order a fruit milkshake. At one place I even had a soy chorizo taco that was my favorite item on the tour. We also went to a market where I purchased an avocado as big as my head, we had the best homemade fruit pops that you’ve ever tasted. And at the very end we went into a shop where they have their own candied nuts which they make right in front of you. This is the second time I have been on the tour, and I would do it again. It was a wonderful 3 1/2 hours! And we were all stuffed.

This tour was great!! We tried a variety of tacos and other local treats. I loved watching the tortillas get made and eating them fresh. Roman was a fantastic guide and answered all of our questions about the culture, food and anything we wanted to know. I would highly recommend this tour and encourage you to come hungry as there is lots of food to try.

The walking food tour was spectacular with visits to locally owned, family restaurants. Paz, our guide, was engaging and obviously enjoys both the food and people of the neighborhood. She made our morning tour a very special part of our trip to Puerto Vallarta.

Ramon was excellent. He adapted to the age range of the group without taking away the experience from those without kids. Knowledgeable about the area and of course amazing tacos. Do this tour early to get the lay of the land in the Romantica Zone.

This was one of the best tours I have ever done. I highly recommend it. Everything was wonderful… the food and drink, our guide (Paz), the locations we visited. Eric (owner) greeted us when we arrived at the meeting point. I highly recommend this tour. And please listen to their suggestion to NOT eat breakfast. You truly get a lot of food and even with not eating breakfast we were very full at end of tour. It was me and my 22 year old son and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. This tour is a MUST if visiting Puerta Vallarta.
