Experience the Best Vegan Food in Vallarta!

Vegan Tacos And Modern Mexican Twists. Nowadays finding vegan or vegetarian food around Mexico can seem to be a strenuous task, however this didn't used to be the case. Pre-Hispanic cultures primarily relied on a plant-based diet as it was easier to grow crops than to hunt. However, with the arrival of the Spaniards, the way we ate became heavily modified. So, eating vegan in many ways is not modern at all and very much goes dates back to many generations past.

What are people Saying?

Joana was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the buildings, restaurants and family owned food cart all around PV. The food was awesome and so was Joana! We plan to do again with family very soon. -Dana from California

There was a great variety including street tacos, refreshing aguas, more formal mole, casual pibil tasting interspersed with a beautiful glass and tile store as well as tortilla factory, candy and cigar making exhibit and a bit of history of the central church in town. Luckily all was paced with some walking and then some resting in air conditioned comfort. This tour is great for everyone, highly recommended -Cindy from New Zealand

My boyfriend and I attended this food tour led by Shaunie (whose energy was absolutely electrifying) and were very pleased with how much we learned about the food and the town simply from being guided by her.We highly recommend this tour! - Allison from Portland
