CULINARY SAFARIS FOR FOODIE TRAVELERS

My name is Rocío I was born and breed in Mexico CityI spent my childhood cooking with my chef mom and later studied Mexican Cuisine. I LOVE food and LOVE traveling, I´ve been in 27 countries so far and I usually hate tours. These safaris are what i would like to have when traveling.

I believe that tourism can be better. Our sustainable approach is actually changing our community, that´s why The New York Times, Forbes and Condé Nasthave feature our safaris. Come with me and my women only team and discover the best food in town. Let us share Mexico City´s magic with you.

OMG!! BUT 115 USD IS A LOT OF MONEY!!!

It´s 15 USD more than the other food tours. Or 2 cocktails at a bar, and like half a taco in NY, the thing is responsible tourism is a little more expensive because we are not A**HOLES like Jeff Bezos. Our women only team makes the best wages in the city along with health benefits and paid vacations.

Our vendors get a service fee, not a tip, because we respect their knowledge and experience and we love to pay for their time. With your payment you´ll make a REGENERATIVE impact in Mexico City, covering homeless, kids, girls from the market, street vendors, senior citizens and women. And on top of that you´ll have the #1 tour in town and eat tons of delicious food. Everybody complains about the world, but we are actually doing something to change it. JOIN US! Yes, it will cost you more, but not that much, like 15 USD more. 

 

WHY CHOOSE EAT LIKE A LOCAL?


WOMEN ONLY

We only hire women and give them the best wages in Mexico along with flexible working times and continuing education programs to keep them updated,  gym membership, and minor medical insurance. Our tours strongly support female-owned business and create opportunities for women from the markets and street stalls. Learn why we are women only HERE    

WE DON´T WORK WITH A**HOLES

We believe that if we  as a humanity stop consuming from businesses with abusive practices they will either change or go out of business, we like to support good restaurants, vendors and suppliers, who care about their staff, pay on time and create good working culture.

RESPONSIBLE TOURISM

Our business model creates a positive impact for the city, the people and the economy. We don´t donate to charity, we created our own social programs to improve our community as a whole, being responsible is also using your time  and getting involved not only giving money away.  From English for children, to free tours for senior citizens,  food for homeless people or education for market vendors we actually put our money where our mouth is.



A LITTLE MORE ABOUT MY COMPANY

I created this company in 2105after a night out drinking with some homeless guys in Istanbul, where they showed me the best street food and I finally understood Turkey´s soul, (yes I was younger and yes, I never saw the danger). After this eye-opening experience, I came back to Mexico, quit my job and created Eat Like a Local

These safaris are what I would like to have when I travel. I focused the tours on street food, because the first time I arrived in Vietnam, saw all the food and could not understand a thing, I realized how you feel in my country. You don´t need me for restaurants, you need me for the street, and here I am for you.

If you, like me, love authentic, flexible, meaningful, personal, experiences, without rushing or making you follow an umbrella (that´s just embarrassing). This is the right company for you. For me, the most important thing when I travel is to have connections and memories not only in my mind but in my heart, and this is what I offer with Eat Like a Local, amazing food, responsible travel, personal connections with locals and memories you´ll cherish forever.

ALL THIS SOUNDS NICE BUT… WHAT IS RESPONSIBLE TOURISM?

In simple words it´s to travel without being an a**hole. It´s basically traveling with low negative impact to the local culture, society and environment, high economic growth for the city you visit, and of course cultural exchange and mutual understanding. Responsible tourism happens when the locals are dignified and empowered and the visitors get knowledge and and a comprehensive idea of the culture they visited.

That being said, if a company says they tip their vendors and pay them fair prices, thats basic human decency not responsible tourism. Responsible tourism involves education, gender equality, fighting hunger, developing communities and much more, there are 17 goals stablished by the United Nations General Assembly,that a company needs to comply to be responsible (sustainable) Eat Like a Local focuses on the following:
