There is no better way to kick off my blog adventures in Mexico than the incredible Vallarta Food Tours experience.
Mex-ology (the Tequila, Tacos and Mexican Cocktails Tour) is, without a doubt, one of the best experiences I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying as a travel blogger. Though a three hour walking tour might intimidate some, the Mex-ology group is kept to a maximum of six people and is paced wonderfully through the beautiful streets of downtown Vallarta by the tour guide – Lobo (Wolf, in Spanish) – a gentleman, scholar, and cherry on top of a faultless afternoon.
We discovered hidden gems and local favourites including Vallarta’s first microbrewery, a taco stand that has been churning out the city’s best carne asada for 45 years, Elizabeth Taylor’s favourite beach-side restaurant in the Sixties, and much more – all featured in the video, below!
Locations featured in the video:
– Joe Jack’s Fish Shack
– Los Muertos Brewery
– La Playa
– El Cuñado Taco Stand
– Maia Restaurant
– La Palapa
What I Wore:
Backless pink dress (vintage – similar here) Teva sandals (I don’t actually think I wore a different shoe for the entire week I was there)
I have been in a serious relationship with Mikado for four wonderful years. It all started when I was looking for a heat-friendly chocolate fix while living in South East Asia and we have been going strong ever since.
When I was approached to work with the company on their Stick Out Your Personality campaign, I could hardly say no. These 11-calorie sticks of chocolate-covered biscuit are something to shout about.
Especially when armed with a larger-than-life box of Mikado and a post-workout craving.
Competition time! For the chance to win a Mikado selfie stick and some delicious treats of your own, simply upload a Mikado-themed selfie to Twitter or Instagram, tagging @Mikado_UK and #MikadoBy. I will announce the winner on September 4th. Good luck!
