About the tour

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.

This was a great experience. Memo was personable and enthusiastic to share his love of Vallarta. We had a small Tour and it was nice visiting with other people on vacation and enjoying good food and good company. We would definitely recommend any Tour in Vallarta by guruwalk!

The Taco 101 tour should be one of the first things you do when you arrive in Puerto Vallarta. Our tour guide was Memo, and he made the tour so fun and enjoyable. The taco stands we visited were all so amazing. We went back to visit a few later on in our stay because we wanted to try more or Memos recommendations and the food the vendors had to offer. If you want an amazing crash course on Vallarta tacos while getting a nice walking tour of old Vallarta I would definitely go on this tour.
