Discover amazing food guided by a formally trained Mexican chef.
Let's walk around this amazing food paradise and taste the best local culinary gems. From seaside grilled fish to tacos, aguas frescas to craft beer. I'm a chef born in Tecate, home of one of Mexico's most popular beers, but it was here where I found beer I love and love to share with others, so we'll visit a brewery and enjoy local craft beers along the way. We'll walk deep into one of Puerto Vallarta's oldest neighbourhoods to taste the tacos locals love and fruit and grains refreshing drinks to keep cool. During our walk, we will talk about local culture, lifestyle and history and of course about the glorious Mexican culinary heritage. As a chef with a sweet tooth I'll make sure we finish with an amazing pastry or any other dessert in season. All of my vendors comply or surpass local sanitary laws and use filtered water and ice (great topic during the tour). Please make sure you are very hungry! we'll start eating about 10 minutes after we start and this tour is packed with a lot of delicious foo.
WE will star at Los Muertos Pier at 6:00 and work our way deep into The Emiliano Zapata district of the city to find incredible food and drinks. There's no set itinerary because this is a conversation about Mexican food as we eat and some times our conversation sets the tone to visit the street food and small independent local restaurants allowing us to pair beer with dessert or just enjoy the best street tacos ever.

This tour & Rafael were recommended by a family member, but far exceeded everything wonderful we were expecting. Rafael was so much fun, and we absolutely LOVED all the food/beverages. Above all, the culinary and culture knowledge he shared with us was so interesting and fun. He made us feel so comfortable to even ask those sometimes awkward questions that people will hesitate to ask. Rafael, you made my birthday even better than I could have wished for. Thank you so much for everything!
