Tour description

A relaxed afternoon of chatting, learning about local finger foods and tasting delicious authentic tacos. A (very) filling taco lunch with a local friend.

​You´ll learn the history of tacos and how tacos are prepared and eaten around Mexico. We will visit up to 5 different taco spots in the central and south neighborhoods. You'll be able to taste 5 to 10 different tacos and many salsas and toppings. It's the most popular breakfast or lunch tacos in the city, the ones we locals often eat. You may try refried beans, cheese, beef machaca, beef and pork birria, chicharron, carnitas, marlin and baja style fish tacos, and shrimp and octopus quesadillas. Plus, drinks and dessert. And lot's of fun. We'll visit street stands and small taco eateries, all of them family businesses. We will also visit a corn tortilla factory!

At every stop, you will learn the menus and prices. We will guide you through the selection process and recommend the most authentic and representative items. And then you take care of your check. The total expense per person for this very filling breakfast or lunch, including drinks and dessert, is the equivalent to between $10 and $15 USD at the very most. Bring your pesos and your apetite!

After our walking and eating session, you will feel more connected to the fabulous local taco scene and you will be more than ready to continue exploring on your own with more knowledge and confidence. I will also show you additional spots that you can visit later on and give you lots of extra info on how to make your vacation more enjoyable.

Enjoy Vallarta by the hand of a proud local.

Memo was very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. Always wanting to know if we wanted more tacos....you need to fast before going on this walking tour. He took us to several places and being from So Cal and having good fish tacos......the ones we had with him... delicious! I don't think I had one bad taco. It was a great way to spend the day in the center of PV.

One of the best walking tours we’ve experienced! Memo was so knowledgeable and did an amazing job presenting and guiding us through the PV taco scene. This is a must do for all fellow foodies visiting the area!

Memo was awesome! There is so much more to tacos than we ever imagined. So glad we took this tour. We feel much more connected to the culture and PV having a better understanding of the everyday culinary food of tacos! And, even better, we know where to go back and eat. Such a great tour!
