I'm an architect, a foodie & a photographer PASSIONATE about sharing tasty Mexican food, and culture.

I worked for a company where I took more than 3,500 guests on tour. Today, I´m LOVING the freedom to put together amazing & authentic experiences for you as an independent Foodie Guide.

I´m in constant search of recipes, the history & mythology behind our food and traditions. I will spice up every bite with stories dear to Mexican hearts.

Putting this experience together is the best gift I can give to people who visit us in search of an authentic experience with a local.

To me is all about creating an intimate experience for travelers who are not into joining big group-tours.

Where you'll be

We'll meet at the San Miguel Arcangel Church in the main square of this traditional neighborhood.
.
We'll walk the streets of Pitillal Centro, which is only 10 to 15 minutes from the hotel zone, yet only a few hear about it.
.
If you have only strolled the touristy area of Puerto Vallarta, you will find yourself with a very different sensory experience—and of course, you'll discover authentic finger-licking Mexican dishes.

This tour gets you behind the scene of puerto vallarta. It is a safe, fun Delicious guided tour by Star who is knowledgeable in everything food and its history. We never felt rushed there was so so so much food. Will do this tour again!

It was great to explore a part of the city that tourists don’t often see. Amazing food, and Star is an incredible host. I can’t recommend this experience enough!

This Airbnb experience was just what i needed after flying in. Chacha and I were alone on this experience I think due to being on a Tuesday. But it’s just what the universe decided in needed. Being with chacha and Starr for one meal and then one on one with Chacha for the rest. It was like hanging with an old friend. The stories of the neighborhood were great, the food was excellent and well described of why and how it’s made. I couldn’t even eat at all the places because it was so much food and beverages but I tried 😂. Thank you two for the breathe of fresh air and belly I needed. Saludos!!!!

This experience was amazing. We learned so much about regional Mexican cuisine and got to try so many authentic dishes that we wouldn't have eaten on our own. We loved eating at local, small restaurants and found some new favorite foods. Star is an awesome host!!

Cha Cha was a wonderful host. Teaching us the culture and how Mexican food originated. All food was delicious! The family businesses were very gracious. The community was inspiring. Only downside, very minor, was trying to find a way home in an unfamiliar place, with very little cell service.
