I'm an architect, foodie & a photographer PASSIONATE about sharing tasty Mexican food & culture.

I worked for a company where I took over 3k guests on tour. Today, I'm LOVING the freedom to put together amazing & authentic experiences for you as an independent Foodie Guide.

Recently, my best friends and big foodies, Chacha and Ana, have joined me to run food tours together.

We love people, traveling, eating, and cooking. We all have lived in foreign countries at some point in our lives, giving us a refreshing view of our own culture and cuisine.

Putting this experience together is the best gift I can give to people who visit us in search of an authentic experience with a local.

To me it is all about creating an intimate experience for travelers who are not into joining big groups.

Where you'll be

We'll meet at the San Miguel Arcangel Church in the main square of this traditional neighborhood.
.
We'll walk the streets of Pitillal Centro, which is only 10 to 15 minutes from the hotel zone, yet only a few hear about it.
.
If you have only strolled the touristy area of Puerto Vallarta, you will find yourself with a very different sensory experience—and of course, you'll discover authentic finger-licking Mexican dishes.

If you are visiting Puerto Vallarta and want to experience the authentic food culture and learn about the community, this is the tour for you! Star gave great instructions on how to meet her and was punctual. I cannot say enough good things about this experience. Star is an amazing, insightful, and thoughtful host. My expectations were exceeded and I am thankful for a more local (read: not tourist trap) experience. Star is the real deal and I will definitely do this again the next time I come to Puerto Vallarta. The amount of knowledge Star was able to share with us about her local culture was wonderful. We visited local shops and markets and got a true tour of the neighborhood in addition to delicious food! You won't regret signing up for this experience!

The tour was super nice! You'll eat a ton of food so it's good to exercise or something before you go to this. I love the neighborhood that this tour took place in as well. Overall it's a really good time!

Amazing tour. We were not sure what to expect but were blown away by our host Star and this wonderful, authentic experience. The food was great - hand picked destinations that extended our knowledge of Mexican food - but it’s the host, her amazing knowledge and lovely demeanour that really make this experience. Don’t hesitate to book it.

We’ve been coming to Puerto Vallarta for six years now this was one of our first food tours and it was amazing! Our host was very kind, with a heart for her country, provided us with great information and cultural history. This will be an annual tour for us!

BEST airbnb experience you can ever ask for. Great value with very delicious food. Our guide Star was very responsible, caring and nice. She tells awesome stories about the food. All the food places she take us are more than awesome! If you are debating, choose this experience, it’s worth it.

Star's tour was excellent! We sampled a variety of local favorites, that ended up being some of the best food we had on our vacation. The tour also took us to an area we wouldn't otherwise have visited! It was a great way to experience some local culture, and Star was wonderful at shepherding using through.
