Best Taco Tour In Puerto Vallarta
You want to indulge in the Vallarta Eats Food Tours and book it fast they only take 6 people per tour! The Tacos After Dark allowed us to experience the Romantic Zone neighborhood of Puerto Vallarta. Walking through this area at night is so different from the day and so incredible.
Get ready for culture, history, tradition and great eats that you simply can not experience anywhere else! Seriously do not eat before you go because you will eat so much your stomach will not be able to handle it all (it’s wonderful).
Things To Know Before You Go
Wear comfortable walking shoes as you will be walking ‘la calles’ of cobblestone and uneven pavement.
There are a few bathrooms if you stop in a cart that has a restaurant seating area in it but do not expect to find many. (just saying, I mean as a mom, I know what you are thinking)
Our guide provided a bag (souvenir) as well as water so you can put your purse in there as well as a camera. This is not a drinking tour, they have those too.
Daniella our Foodie in charge also spoke great English, explained every stop along the way and set our expectations BEFORE we began.
Tip your Foodie Guide (it’s so worth it, I suggest at least $20 but you can do whatever suits your budget). The Foodie are top-rated, and so ON their job, our Foodie Guide was Daniella she was a walking encyclopedia of information.
Your Foodie Guide will take photos of the group and they do supply these at no charge when they email you after the tour, it is really a great thing. Do take your camera if you want those #GoodEats IG shots!
The Taco Tour we took was at night, began at 7 and took about 3 hours because you stop, eat and drink and then repeat. The tour can take that long or more depending on how much you all eat!
Where We Met
We met Daniella our Foodie Guide for Tacos After Dark at 7 PM on the Insurgentes Bridge (north-bound) in Old Town Puerto Vallarta. Our cab ride was about $4 to here, we left our hotel and it took about 5 minutes (Buenaventura Grand Hotel)
Our stops included:
Tacos Yanez – taco de cabeza – cheek, tongue and brains (corner of Lazaro Cardenas and Aguacate)
Churro Man – (corner of Lazaro Cardenas and Aguacate)
Las Gueras – taco al pastor, con todo/with everything (corner of Naranjo and Venustiano Carranza)
El Moreno – quesadilla with adobada pork, beans, onion, guacamole, salsa, lime, and salt (corner of Francisco Madero and Constitución)
La Hormiga Feliz – quesadilla with mushrooms (corner of Fco Madero and IL Vallarta)
La Michoacana – Ice pops/paletas (right by the Starbucks at the downtown square) and we returned there again and again.
This one is not even on the list, Daniella took us here to experience this delicious beverage. Inside the front Pot is the magical beverage you see above.
The beverage was used to dunk the soon to be gotten CHURROS in and it tasted like a hot chocolate while not too rich or too sweet. Look at these Churros, so yummy !
As soon as we got this, we moved on, and we stopped at the Churro Man.
These handmade treats are given to you in a small bag, about 5 to a bag and he makes 1000 a night and sells out. You have to get here early (he starts around 7P) or you will not get to experience them!
My husband got the chance to help turn out the Churros!
Now it’s time to venture to the Taco Eats! Ready? This is Tacos Yanez
Since there is not a way to clean the dishes so all dishes are lined with a plastic sleeve and the sleeve is changed from customer to customer.
Here they had really delicious Hibiscus drinks as well.
The toppings to put on the taco.
