A walking tour by a chef with a sweet tooth.

I love sweets and I live in Candyland! This is a total sugar rush (guilt free because we walk). I'll meet you at a decommissioned lighthouse for a wonderful view of the whole bay over Mexican coffee and pastries. We will walk the cobblestones to downtown by the river and go to a local candy factory and sample traditional local candy. We'll visit a bakery where everything is made from scratch in a huge plank loading oven and try their cinnamon rolls. We will discuss and taste the French influence over Mexican pastries plus coffee or tea. We'll stop for a palate cleanser and continue walking the Malecon (Boardwalk) to finish at a chocolate factory for chocolate sampling, learning about Mexican chocolate and finish with a cocoa bean infusion drink and a scrumptious chocolate dessert. Bottled cold water is included. Along the way we will see a traditional residential neighbourhood and talk about its history and famous residents, go to the iconic Los Muertos Pier and the artsy Cuale island.

A Recent Review of this tour

Rafael is an excellent tour guide who has vast knowledge of the culinary scene in Puerto Vallarta. Rafael is friendly, personable and very interesting. He is organized, thorough and our tour was well planned. He taught us a lot about the history of food in PV while at the same time introducing us to a wide variety of foods.
