SEASONAL AND SPECIAL DIET SAFARIS


HEY! I´M ROCIO, EAT LIKE A LOCAL´S FOUNDER

I´m 35 years old and I created this company 4 years ago after 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).

These safaris are what I would like to have when I travel. Every year I spend 2 months traveling and taking tours to understand what is good, what is bad and what I need to improve. The safaris are primarily focused on street food, because the first time I arrived in Vietnam and saw all the food and couldn´t understand a thing, I realized how you feel in my country, you don´t need me for restaurants, that´s why you have Google, you need me for the street, and here I am for you. I´m literally giving you the same kind of experience I would love to find while traveling: authentic, flexible, meaningful experiences, avoiding tourist traps; we focus on making them personal, without rushing you or making you follow an umbrella (that´s just embarrassing). For me, the most important thing when I travel is to have memories not only in my mind but in my heart, and this is what I offer with Eat Like a Local, amazing food, personal connections with locals and memories you´ll cherish forever.

WHY SUSTAINABLE TOURISM?

Sustainable tourism for us is visiting somewhere as a tourist and make a positive impact on the environment, society, and economy, the one that promotes mutual respect and understanding, where vendors are dignified with good payments that allow them to benefit from tourism without scamming you or harass you to sell you something. You´ll get to understand the food, the cooking process, the value of the items you consume and the hearth of the city, you won´t have only food, you´ll have a deeper understanding of Mexico, through its people, because we work with the community as a team, not asking for discounts and not promising to them that you as tourist will buy from their stalls, they are not focused on taking your money, they want to show you their food, share their stories, listen to yours. Sustainable tourism is an exchange, you take and you give, and both sides are benefited.

WHY CHOOSE EAT LIKE A LOCAL?

 

EVERYTHING INCLUDED

NO hidden costs, NO extra payments, unlimited food, alcohol inclusions, all the bottled water you want, transportation during the tour,  and tips for vendors.  You can leave your wallet at the hotel.

SMALL AND FLEXIBLE

Maximum 6 people, so we can navigate small markets without disrupting the local life, we change the tours in case you have special needs, remove or ad stops, and make it special for you on the go.

SOCIAL ORIENTED

Sustainability also is giving great salaries to great people, I hire high educated women and pay them AMAZING money. This allows us to have well-traveled, interesting and cultured hosts. On the other hand,  our social programs teach English to kids from the markets, learn more HERE
