Tacos and Street Food Tour Puerto Vallarta

The Emiliano Zapata’s Tacos and Steet Food Adventure visits a family fonda, FOUR taco stands, the “tamale lady”, a churros cart, a crepe stand and a traditional Mexican cenaduria.

Enjoy a THREE hour culinary adventure through the heart and soul
of historic Old Town (Emiliano Zapata).

Savour TWO or THREE tacos at each stand. It’s up to you. Yes, that is 8-12 tacos, a tamale, some churros and a crepe. (You don’t have to eat it all).

Built for food enthusiasts with a more adventurous palate, this evening street food tour meanders through the historic Emiliano Zapata neighborhood to sample what locals consider the most outstanding pulpo (octopus), cabeza, lengua, tripa, trotters and fish roe tacos in town. Less adventurous palates have more traditional options such as carne asada, chorizo, shrimp, al pastor and more. There’s something for everybody! Add to this feast the best tamale in town, some churros and an evening-ending street side crepe for good measure.

This is more than a street food tour. It is an adventure of the senses. Smile, laugh and learn about the deep history and tradition of the Emiliano Zapata neighborhood. Inhale the enticing aromas permeating throughout the streets and savour the bold flavors that only the more adventurous cuts of meat can deliver.
