Tortillarias, Puerto Vallarta.

The pre-Cortes inhabitants of Mexico invented the famous tortillas of that country between 2000 and 1000 B.C., when most historians agree that corn began to be cultivated in Guatemala and in southern Mexico. Jack B. Kemmerer
Traditionally made by hand, several Taco Stands still do! they are now produced by a machine that was first invented in the early 1900s. You’ll find them all around, but not so many in the tourist areas (beach). They all make the traditional Corn tortilla except one, that only makes fresh Wheat tortillas, even Whole Wheat.
