Tacos after Dark

Our Tacos after Dark tour is essential for anyone looking for full taco immersion. Stroll the streets of Vallarta and taste a selection of tacos carefully curated to leave you with a well rounded exposure to the beloved taco.

When the sun sets, the beaches empty, and night falls over Puerto Vallarta, the city comes alive with the sights, sounds, and smells of Vallarta’s vibrant food scene. Join our foodie guides as you stroll the historic streets of Vallarta’s oldest neighborhoods and sample a variety of tacos and sweet treats from the family-run carts and restaurants that helped build our city’s long standing reputation for great food. 

The Tacos After Dark Tour is offered daily at 6 and 6:30 pm and is limited to 8-10 guests to keep our curated tours intimate and engaging.

You can plan on 5 savory food stops tasting 6 to 8 (depending on how adventurous you are) tacos/foods on your tour. You will also stop for fresh churros and hand made ice cream. Tour routes change depending on partner operating days, but here is a sample of some of the foods and tacos you may find on your tour: arrachera, traditional pastor, shrimp taco, cabeza, pork rib taco, enmolada, tacos dorados, adobada, ice cream, and churros.

Keep in mind, 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!
