Millions of tourists from all over the globe visit Cancun each year. The world class vacation destination, located in the Mexican Caribbean on the azure Caribbean Sea, is always growing and changing to meet the needs of its visitors.
The last thing you want to worry about when you're on vacation is getting sick, and one of the most difficult parts of having celiac disease is figuring out what's safe for you to eat. Luckily more and more restaurants in Cancun are offering gluten-free menus, gluten-free entrees, or at least the option of asking the chef to prepare a special gluten-free meal.
All of the restaurants in the Ritz Carlton Cancun, including The Club Grill and Casitas, happily prepare gluten-free cuisine. Outback Steakhouse actually has a gluten-free menu. Vegan Planet and 100% Natural downtown and Le Natura in the Hotel Zone all serve healthy, economical food with many vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free entrees. Ruth's Chris Steak House, Savio's Bistro and Arrecifes, all fine dining restaurants located in the Hotel Zone, will prepare gluten-free meals upon request. With just 24 hours notice, Du Mexique, a fabulous French-Mexican fusion restaurant downtown on Bonampak Avenue, will prepare gluten-free bread and entrees for diners.
If you're looking for gluten-free goods, visit Las 3 Puertas (The Three Doors) in downtown Cancun on Mojarra Street off of Nader Avenue.
