Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Half the fun of visiting new places is eating out and sampling the local cuisine. In Puerto Vallarta, one of the best places to do this is at one of the city's many taco stands. But with so many different varieties and styles, how do you know which ones to try?
The answer is easy! Make plans now to attend the second edition of the 2017 Puerto Vallarta Taco Festival, which is set to be held from 2:00-10:00 pm on November 18 and 19 at the Agustín Flores Contreras Municipal Sports Stadium (across form the Sheraton in the Hotel Zone).
This family-friendly event will not only feature some of the best taco stands and restaurants in the city offering a wide variety of Mexico's most representative dish - the taco! - but also informative talks, beer and tequila tastings and food pairings, traditional Lucha Libre exhibitions, live music and many other fun activities.
The Taco Festival's guest of honor will be caricaturist José Trinidad Camacho, better known as "Trino," who will present his book Don Taquero. Also present at this edition will be Déborah Holtz and Alejandro Escalante, editor and author of the book La Tacopedia.
After the success of the first edition, this time the festival is expected to serve up more than 32,000 tacos, ranging from traditional favorites like tacos de birria, lengua, al pastor and others, to more gourmet styles, such as salmon and lobster.
Come out and spend a very pleasant evening (or two!) with your family while enjoying the sights, sounds and flavors of Mexico. Lots of tradition, lots of fun and lots of tacos... all in one place!
