Tasting Vallarta

For a sit-down dining experience highlighting the finer fare and crafted cocktails of Vallarta, reserve a seat with Tasting Vallarta.

Our Tasting Vallarta food tour is curated to showcase the finer fares of Vallarta beyond its famous street foods. Sit back and chat with our foodie guide and other guests as you savor refined preparations of classic Mexican dishes along with modern-fusion latin cuisine.

Your experience includes paired selections of craft cocktails and wines along the way*. This progressive-meal tour takes you through the side streets of three of Vallarta’s most bustling neighborhoods, and finishes with a spectacular riverside dessert display. 

The Tasting Vallarta Tour is offered on Thursdays and Fridays, and is limited to 10 guests unless booked as a private tour. Past guests tell us the best time to take our tours is the beginning of a stay in Puerto Vallarta — you’ll be able to return to your newly found favorites throughout the rest of your visit.

Save yourself a seat at the table and reserve your spot today!

Thursdays and Fridays at 6 pm
