What you'll do

We’ll walk through the streets of the colorful Oaxaca Centro to find the most hidden and local taco spots. Most of these taquerias can’t be found in any guidebooks or blogs! Carnitas (pork), tasajo (thin grilled beef), tacos de lechón (suckling pig), barbacoa (barbecue), bistec (beef steak)…Are you hungry yet? We’ll visit 5 taquerias to try a little bit of everything, different textures and flavors wrapped up in warm corn tortillas. I recommend eating 2 tacos in each taqueria for a total of 10 tacos per person in a period of about 4 hours. We’ll also taste some traditional local mezcal as we make our way from one taqueria to the next. And we’ll take a break mid-way through eating to stop in a typical cantina for a cold beer or glass of mezcal. Bring your appetite and let me show you where the locals go for dinner.

The taquerias that we will go are where the locals go, if you have a delicate stomach, notify before booking. I have done this tour with many foreign friends and have not had stomach problems.
