With hundreds of restaurants serving global flavors, Puerto Vallarta offers travelers a top-notch dining scene. Try freshly caught fish aboard a sunset cruise, shop like a local at a food market, or study the art of tequila. Here are your options.
Food Walking Tours
One of the best ways to experience the depth and breadth of the food scene in Puerto Vallarta is by hitting the pavement on a walking tour. Take a tour of a local market before learning to cook a few local dishes or opt for a themed tour, focusing on everything from gourmet cuisine to tacos. Hungry visitors can also choose to explore by region, exploring the food scene of downtown or the traditional suburb of Pitillal.
Beer and Spirits Tours
Nothing pairs better with a tasty meal than a cold drink, and Puerto Vallarta certainly delivers in the libations department. Beer lovers can explore the town’s burgeoning craft beer scene, tasting creations like tequila-infused beer and micheladas, while those who prefer wine can opt for a walking tour and tasting in Puerto Vallarta’s Art District. It would be a shame to leave Mexico without tasting its most famous product, tequila. A tequila cocktail tour includes expertly mixed tequila cocktails paired with local favorites, from tacos to dessert.
Sit-down dining experiences take many forms in Puerto Vallarta—everything from sunset cruises to mariachi dinner shows. Enjoy dinner and a cabaret, or indulge in a 12-course restaurant-hopping culinary adventure to some of the town’s award-winning restaurants.
