Vallarta Eats Food Tours

Gay Friendly, Gay Owned, Mixed Clientele, Mexican

Join Vallarta Eats Food Tours as they skip the usual tourist restaurants and head for the best off-the-beaten-path eateries in Vallarta. Eat with locals as they fill your plates with fresh, mouthwatering fare from the real Mexico. Let them treat you to a little taste of culture and a whole lot of fun. Come hungry!

Signature Taco and More Tour is perfect for people who want to go deeper into Mexican Culture and eat a wide variety of the everyday food the locals eat.

We recommend taking their tours at the beginning of your stay in Puerto Vallarta. That way, you’ll be able to return to your newly discovered favorite spots during the rest of your visit!

This is a walking tour where your Vallarta Eats Foodie Guide will give you the inside scoop on:

why Mexicans eat chicharron (fried pork skin), carnitas (pork), and birria (spicy Mexican stew) tacos for breakfast, the importance of the tortilla in the Mexican diet (while you visit a tortilla factory and taste tortillas fresh off the press), a variety of fresh fish and seafood from the ocean to your plate, fruit, candy, and more

Tour
Chocolate & Vanilla Discovery

more info

When you’re opening a box of decadent Godiva or a pint of delicious vanilla ice cream, it’s easy to forget that your dessert has a history of almost 4,000 years. Cultivated by the Mayans and the Aztecs, the cacao bean and vanilla plant both have their origins in Mexico. Over the years they have seen many different forms: from drinks to bars, from extracts to synthetics. On this tour, you’ll get a chance to explore chocolate and vanilla treats you’ve never even conceived of… and some old favorites, too!

12:00 - 3:00 pm   Every Tuesday, Saturday
  @ Vallarta Eats Food Tours

Try old-style authentic chocolate drinks, direct descendants of those the Maya drank, Enjoy delicious vanilla flan and artisan vanilla ice cream, Visit the ChocoMuseo, where the chocolate sweets of the modern era are waiting to greet you!
The Chocolate and Vanilla Discovery Tour is offered Tuesdays and Saturdays.
Tours are limited to 8-10 guests unless they are one larger group of friends or family. Groups of six or more are offered private tours at no additional charge— Contact us in advance. Large group reservations have become our specialty. Call or email us today and we’ll have you covered in no time.
