I'm a formally trained chef with a great passion for tacos. Day tacos are varied, delicious abundant and glorious; I invite you to try my favorite and discuss them from the chef perspective; techniques, ingredient origins, regional variations and recipes. The idea is for us to explore not only the culinary side of Vallarta, but to show you my town, its rich culture and unique beauty as well. Come with me as I show you our hidden gems declared cultural heritage of humanity by the UN

Where you'll be

We'll start at the boardwalk, take a taste of downtown's food and culture and cross the river to Old-town for a progressive lunch and cultural adventure. See and taste our city from the eyes of a local chef and visual artist. All of our stops comply with local health laws and practices and use local fresh ingredients cooke daily.

just returned from our tour with Rafael, the very friendly, kind, professional aficionado of PV tacos!! Not only did he bring us to “taco heaven” he graciously shared his obvious culinary love and history of the area❤️. We loved everything and our tummies are definitely taking a siesta now! Add this to your vacation experience! Thank you so much, Rafael!

Best taco walk in Puerto Vallarta!! We tasted six very different tacos. Not samples but full size servings. The winner for me was a seafood chile relleno taco. We also stopped to see a local bakery and open market. The tour ended with a sweet ice cream treat. A great value for your money!!

Such an array of flavors! We loved this tour. The variety of tacos offered were truly unity and tasty. Rafael did a good job explaining the history and how each taco was prepared & cooked. It is a plus he is a trained chef! Apart from the filling food, you are able to sightsee the downtown area! Rafael was a great communicator from the initial booking inquiry until post-tour! I highly recommend this food tour.

We HIGHLY recommend this Progressive Taco tour of Old Town with Rafael. We experienced 6 authentic street/restaurant taquerias and given inside knowledge of local ingredients and cooking techniques as well as information on the city's bureaucracy regarding vendors and food sanitation regulations. With 6 taquerias we ate 6 unique tacos and 6 delicious jugos frescos (fresh juice). Rafael is an interesting person with deep culinary background and understanding. A must tour in Puerto Vallarta!

We had 6 tacos plus a unique liquado at nearly every taco stop. Plus a traditional fermented coconut juice mixture on the malecon, plus a pastry at the beginning and ice cream at the end... show up very hungry but you actually don't need a water bottle with all the wonderful food & drink.
