Tasting Vallarta Gourmet Food Tour

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    Immerse yourself in this progressive dining experience that takes you into the gourmet food scene of Puerto Vallarta. A guide leads you to four popular places offering delectable authentic Mexican fare. You’ll cover about a mile of walking during the nighttime tour.

     Kick off the night at a cozy, family-run restaurant, where you’ll sample fine seafood and an unparalleled chicken asado. A special cocktail makes the delicious food go down even more smoothly.

     Then, your guide takes you to a Mexican restaurant that’s a perennial winner of ‘Best Restaurant in Vallarta.’ Begin with fresh and fruity cocktail, followed by a traditional quesadilla filled with Jamaica, a tuna-stuffed Jalapeno and a savory cochinita pibil (slow-roasted pork).

     Cross the streets of Old Town Vallarta and stop at a charming spot off of the Malecon. With beautiful water views in the background, dig into a savory mahi mahi dish.

     Finally, stroll onto the Malecon and enter an eatery offering assorted desserts, along with an addictive Mexican cocktail. At the end of the tour, your guide will provide you with instructions on returning to your hotel via foot, bus or taxi.

    Paz, our tour guide was a very well rounded young lady. She was well versed, informative and fun. The places she took us to were excellent. We both had been in the food industry for 25 years, so we are sometimes food snobs. We felt as if we were dining with an old friend, rather

    This was a great tour—a chance to try local cuisine at some of PV’s hidden gems. Our tour guide Paz was very friendly and knowledgeable, and got my husband to try foods he would never have tried on his own. We plan to go back and have dinner at a couple of the places we toured.
