What to expect from our Flavors of Mexico Food Tour

Indulge in a delicious selection of 7 local dishes and 3 refreshing Mexican Cocktails local restaurants that have defined Mexican gastronomy in Cancun. In the early years, Downtown Cancun’s easy access to local markets full of fresh meats, ingredients, condiments and fruits made it a target for local restaurant owners with knowledge from secrets and recipes from other parts of Mexico to open their doors.

Downtown Cancun has been transformed in several ways in the last few years. After struggling a bit earlier to attract tourism and even locals, Cancun’s central neighborhood has been repurposed with a new plan that included the opening of several hotels, hostels and restaurants that reactivated the once glorious activity of the beginnings of Cancun. When taking our food tour, you will be tasting a piece of Cancun’s history & culture on each bite & sip. Our tour starts with a comfortable hotel pick up. You will be greeted by our guide who will be the one in charge of sharing all the details & information about each dish, drink and every restaurant on the tour.

Fun taco night Guide Diego was very knowledgeable and friendly, it was super fun trip! Weather was quite extreme though, but driver George(? Not sure about his name) was really good at driving on the flooded road. Recommend to future tourists that don't drink too much drinks. You gonna get super full at the end of this trip!

Off the beaten path taco and beer tour This tour was one of the highlights of our Cancun trip. It was my adult son and I and we had a blast. It was great to get out of the tourist area and experience downtown Cancun. Our tour guide Gib was extremely knowledgeable not just about the tacos but also the city. His indepth knowledge made the tlur that much more enjoyable.

Amazing food! Amazing guide and host! Well worth the money! We absolutely loved this experience, Carlos our guide and chef was amazing and very patient while we took lots of pictures, we where lucky to have a 1 on 1 guided tour, he took us to the local markets that the locals use which was vibrant couleeful and cheap! Everyone was very friendly and Carlos was very knowledgeable about the stores and street food giving us recommendations and history of the market! We then wen to la paroles restaurant with the groceries we picked up from the market. Carlos showed us the traditional ways of cooking guacamole, green salsa, red salsa, enchiladas, pico de gallo and many more recipes. Carlos gave us information and history behind the food and showed us the traditional and quicker ways of making the food! He has even emailed us the recipes to make at home! I cannot reccomend this enough. If you love food and tradition please book well worth the money!

Some of the best food spots! G our tour guide and Alex the driver made this whole experience amazing! G had so much knowledge about the local food and really took us to some of the best spots around. G would tell us about the restaurant we were headed to and what drinks they had to offer so we were well informed by the time we arrived. I will be forever dreaming about the Al pastor tacos at one of the last spots! I couldn’t recommend this tour more!!
