Vallarta Food Tours Wins 2019 Travelers' Choice Award

July 10, 2019

Robles Birria Tacos are among the dishes you'll enjoy on a Vallarta Food Tour. Originating in the state of Jalisco, this slow-cooked meat stew is marinated in aromatic red chiles and served up in delectable tacos.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Downtown Vallarta Food Tour last week announced it has been recognized as #5 winner in the Food Experiences category of the 2019 TripAdvisor Travelers Choice awards, ranking #5 out of over 2,200 global food experiences.

The Travelers's Choice Experiences awards highlight the world's top bookable experiences on TripAdvisor, by category and country, based on the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings by travelers worldwide. With more than 200,000 experiences on TripAdvisor, these winners are in an extremely competitive field and represent the best-of-the-best with only 1% receiving this award.

Back in 2011, Paul Mayer and Lindsay Prime Mayer started Puerto Vallarta Food Tours with the tag "Become a local in 3 hours." Thousands of "new locals" later, TripAdvisor has recognized Vallarta Food Tour's Original Downtown Tour as one of the world's top ten food experience (#5) and the #1 tour in Puerto Vallarta out of 255.

These tours have become a favorite among travelers who are eager to learn and enjoy the best the city has to offer in a short time. With more that eight tours on the roster, tour participants can enjoy a variety of regional dishes including mole, fresh ceviche, birria tacos, refreshing tuba, succulent coconut, and a tortilla straight off of the conveyor belt! All with a good smattering of the sights, history and people of Vallarta.

Co-founder Lindsay Prime started the tour after realizing that many people were stuck in tourist traps, missing the best that Puerto Vallarta had to offer.

"People often ask us 'where do the locals go to eat?' We wanted to create an experience for people to learn not only where locals eat, but also the history of the dishes and their importance in Mexican culture," Lindsay enthusiastically explains, "We love living here and wanted to showcase why - the food, the culture, the families, the history - and Vallarta Food Tours allows us to do just that!"
