Signature Taco Tour

Pay attention to the men (and women!) behind the curtain! Discover the Vallarta beyond the tourist spots and eat at the places locals love!

Want to avoid tourist traps and dive deeper into Mexican culture? Our Signature Taco Tour is for you! Our Foodie Guides will show you the best food, tell you the best stories, and do their very best to keep you from eating until you explode (hey, it’s a harder job than you’d think!).

Not only will you go “behind the scenes” and see the Vallarta not manufactured for tourists, you’ll also learn about Mexican culture and history, plus extras like…

  • The reason why Mexicans eat chicharron (fried pork skin) for breakfast (hint: when is the time of day you would least want to be frying something…?)
  • A visit to a tortilla factory, where you’ll learn about this local staple and taste tortillas fresh off the press
  • A chance to meet the local people behind all this local food!

The Signature Taco Tour is offered every day. Tours are limited to 8-10 guests unless they are one larger group of friends or family. Groups of eight or more are offered private tours at no additional charge— Contact us in advance. Large group reservations have become our specialty. Call or email us today and we’ll have you covered in no time.

A helpful hint… Past guests tell us the best time to take our tours is the beginning of your stay in Puerto Vallarta — you’ll be able to return to your newly found favorites throughout the rest of your visit!

Hungry? Excited? Itching to ditch the tourist crowd and seek out Vallarta’s true treasures? Don’t wait — reserve your spot today!

Where to meet and when

Daily at 10am

The Signature Taco Tour begins next to the River Cafe Restaurant in Old Town Puerto Vallarta (Isla Rio Cuale 4, Zona Romántica, Centro, 48300 Puerto Vallarta, Jal). Your Vallarta Eats Foodie Guide can be identified by the Vallarta Eats shirt she/he will be wearing. If you are driving please allow time to find parking. This location is easy to find and many bus routes will take you there. Also, any taxi will know this location. Make sure to check our FAQ for driving times from nearby hotels and resorts. Information on driving times given to you by your hotel concierge may be based on old traffic patterns, and we are unable to wait for late guests and late arriving guests will not receive refunds.
