Guided food and drink tour of Puerto Vallarta
Sample authentic meals and cocktails at five different stations
Learn about the cultural and historical importance of local culinary staples
Discover authentic, family-run eateries well off the tourist track
What to expect
The coastal resort of Puerto Vallarta might be best known for its beaches, but in-the-know travelers head to its picturesque Old Town for another reason: the food. On this walking tour led by a foodie, discover the area’s best places to eat and drink, from family-run eateries to traditional cocktail bars. Your tasting journey begins in Puerto Vallarta’s Old Town, where you’ll make the first of five different stops. Discover under-the-radar, authentic eateries as your guide explains the cultural and historical significance of the foods you sample. Taste a fresh fish taco paired with a cucumber-infused mezcal cocktail or a fiery jalapeño margarita. You’ll even learn how to make the perfect michelada cocktail with beer and fresh salsa. Finally, head to a beachside restaurant for dessert. Your guide will point out Puerto Vallarta’s must-see sights along the way, so first-time visitors will get the perfect primer.

Great experience
Bernardo was a great guide. We loved every place and we felt like we learned so much. I would recommend doing this early on i. Your visit to PVR so you can find some great spots to visit. We loved many of the restaurants and ended up revisiting them the next day. This was my favorite experience we booked during our stay.

Amazing taco y tequila tour!
Sep 2021 • Family
Miel garcia was an amazing tour guide! She took us to spots that were not designated on the tour and they did not disappoint! The tacos were delicious, the drinks were amazing, and Miel led us to all the great spots while giving us a nice history of old puerto Vallarta.

Highly recommend this tour, do early in your trip so you can visit spots again
Great tour bu Luis Alba

PROS
Visit street taco vendors and restaurants off the beaten path
Eat foods you may not have tried
Lots of education on history, how things are made and why
Fabulous drinks.
Food allergies ok. They will find alternatives

CONS
It rained cats and dogs. Luis had disposable ponchos to keep us dry
Wear sandals, when it rains the streets are like streams and your shoes will get soaked

BEST PV Food & Tequila Tour
Sep 2021
This was hands down, the best food tour -- loved our fearless leader Bernardo -- he gave us SO MUCH insight into each place, into PV overall -- there were constant 'ah ha' moments. Each restaurant, taco and cocktail was as good as, or better than the next. AND, I lucked out to have an awesome tour group -- we connected so well, that afterwards, we all went back to Joe Jacks and hung out together.

Recommend 100%....!!!!

Luis was our tour guide during our Bachelorette trip - he was personable, knowledgable, and tons of fun! I learned so much during this tour and the food/drinks were simply amazing. This is a must to do list in Puerto Vallarta. 10/10 will highly recommend to anyone.

Highly recommend tour with Luis
Aug 2021
Led by Luis Alba,

Had a great time exploring and learning the history of drinks here in Mexico; you can definitely tell that Luis knows the rich history of Mexico and food and drink. Great energy that keeps you going a bit non-stop (No chance for food coma or anything :) ). Highly recommend taking this tour. Our fav was at the tiny hole in the wall selling Pulque. Appreciate that Luis is so friendly and clearly has a relationship with so many local vendors in PV.

Do your best to not eat so much before this tour!
