Being Vegan in Tulum is a breeze! Going back through the pictures from our trip to Tulum, I’m actually kind of impressed with how many different places we were able to eat at. My father in law sent me a message while we were away asking if all we did was scope out the vegan food scene and eat…apparently, yes. I have a whopping 2 pictures of the ocean. Oops! In our defence, there was some sort of algae infestation while we were there. We’ve always had the pleasure of visiting Mexico a few times before as well, so we’d already done a few cenotes, and swam with the cutest turtles in Akumal. Seriously, if you love sea turtles, get your but to Akumal. The water is crystal clear, and there are SO MANY turtles!
In & Out of Tulum in 4 Days
This trip was a quick 4 days and we packed in as much as we could while still making enough time to relax.
I’ll share with you guys some of the food we ate below. Note: one of the cutest places we went to was Fruto Mistico and I didnt get the chance to shoot any pictures since it was pitch black when we went. I even tried to go back during the day before leaving but they were closed. You’ll need to take my word for it but 10/10 for setting.
Now, in no particular order… vegan noms in Tulum!
Doesn’t look like it’s in the middle of a jungle? Matcha Mama is down by the beach, and I can see why it’s so popular! They have so many different types of smoothie bowls & I can’t think of a better way to cool down from the heat.
Charly’s Vegan Tacos
A little further down the beach, you’ll find Charly’s vegan tacos. All outdoor gem serving up some seriously good tacos. We lucked out with the weather on our trip and didn’t get any rain. Since there’s no indoor seating here, you’ll want to save other restaurants for the rainy days!
Tulum has no shortage of cute spots as you can see from the photos so far! What I especially loved about Charly’s Vegan Tacos are the messages found within <3
Flor De Michoacan
The real reason we came here was for the popsicles. They have a bunch that are vegan and they cost like a dollar! I got a guava one, Christopher got strawberry. YUMMMMM! They also had fresh coconuts for sale. I picked up one of those, so Christopher ordered french fries. Logical, right?
Not a vegan restaurant by any means but they do have one option, and it’s a winner! Their vegan burrito is a generous size and the salsa options they give really make it interesting. I’d go back for more.
Ok. So these obviously aren’t restaurants but they’re worth stopping at. There’s lots of fruit stands in town, and sometimes you’ll even see vendors on bikes. The dream, really.
The Pitted Date
The first restaurant of our trip, and the last as well. The Pitted Date is between the Cancun airport and Tulum. We first found out about them through Instagram and knew we needed to make the stop if ever we were to visit Mexico again. Their food presentation is A1.
We’d love to hear from you!
We have big travel plans in the next little while and would love to know where your favourite trips were and the your favourite restaurants!
