10 Best Places to Find Vegetarian Food in Los Cabos



Cabo San Lucas chefs have increasingly emphasized fresh, local and organic ingredients in recent years, and this trend towards healthy and sustainable food has translated to an increase in vegan, vegetarian and gluten free dishes at area restaurants. Although there are still relatively few completely vegetarian eateries in Los Cabos, virtually all the restaurants at major resorts showcase some vegetarian options, and many offer separate vegetarian menus.

El Ameyal Hotel & Wellness Center's onsite restaurant, also called El Ameyal, is the shining light for visiting vegetarians, so much so that it even customizes menu offerings to suit specific diets. Vegans and raw foodies, for example, will feel welcome at El Ameyal, as will lacto and lacto ovo vegetarians. The hotel also offers vegetarian cooking classes, as well as special nutritional treatments in conjunction with some of the spa’s holistic healing treatments.

For those interested in doing their own cooking, the California Ranch Market at the foot of Pedregal carries the best selection of organic and health-conscious specialty items, and also features an onsite menu with vegetarian paninis and fresh fruit and vegetable juices. Organic markets are open each week in both Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo, and local organic farms like Huerta Los Tamarindos and Flora Farms are home to excellent onsite restaurants.
