Doña Elvira

Location: Punta de Mita

Occupation: Makes Tamales

Elvira is famous in town for her uniquely flavorful tamales. A migrant from the southern state called Chiapas, Elvira brought to Nayarit seeds from the south to grow specialty herbs for her tamales. Her tamales are also special because instead of using corn flour, she cooks and grinds corn for her tamales, giving them a fresh flavor and texture. They are the best tamales we’ve tasted!
