Food and Mixology Tour: Tequila, Tacos, and Mexican Cocktails
From US$75.00
Overview
The coastal town of Puerto Vallarta is packed with world-class food options and delectable drinks. During this guided walking tour, you’ll bypass the usual tourist traps for a tasting tour through the flavors of Mexico’s Pacific coast. Enjoy fresh and tasty tacos and a variety of local desserts, and join a mixologist to learn the secrets behind the town’s best cocktails. A limited group size makes for an intimate experience.
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.
