Full description
Meet your local foodie guide who will introduce you to authentic dishes and drinks in downtown Vallerta. This small-group tour will introduce you to the hidden gems that make the culinary scene in the city so unique. Go beyond the popular tourist spots and discover the local favorites, which you might not find on your own. Sample a range of tacos including steak tacos, fish tacos, shrimp tacos, tacos al pastor, and beef cheek tacos. Discover how Tequila, Mezcal, and Racillia are close cousins and by the end of the tour, understand the difference between the 3. Taste the difference between a standard cocktail and the creations made by Vallarta’s best Mixologists. Sample a range of flavors starting with a Mezcal Cocktail made with fresh lime, cucumber, and a signature ingredient. Then savor a Jalapeño Margarita made by hand with fresh all-natural ingredients. Finally, enjoy a Michelada, made with beer and fresh salsas. You won’t walk more than a few blocks without being offered a Tequila tasting. Learn the difference between a quality drink and a run of the mill creation.

Our tour with Miel was the highlight of our trip in puerta Vallarta. We were only in town for a couple days and like many visitors wanted to explore as authentically as we could. Miel exceded our expectations. Her personal culinary knowledge as a trained chef paired with her love of hospitality made it evident that we had found someone special to show us around. If you’re lucky enough to have Miel as your guide I highly suggest picking her brain about culture and cuisine- she has a wealth of knowledge and personal flare. The tacos were fantastic and the local white label Raissa was a standout. Don’t think about it, just book the tour.

This was an EXCELLENT tour. Bernardo and Joanna were the best, we could not have asked for better hosts. I was a little concerned about being in a large group during the pandemic, but it was just the three of us and two guides. They were extremely accommodating and moved us to outside spaces when able. This is well worth the money and I would highly recommend it. The food and drinks were fantastic!!!
