Historical Fact: The first “taquiza” that we have knowledge of was given by Hernan Cortes in Coyoacan to all his captains. This was documented by Bernal Diaz del Castillo in his chronicle: “True History of the Conquest of New Spain”.

We do not have the exact time when the first taco was ever invented, but we are very grateful for it. There’s no better place to enjoy a delicious taco than in Mexico and Vallarta-Nayarit. Come and spoil yourself with this delicious food!
