We all like to splurge a little when we are on vacation and we often drink and eat more than usual. Cancun offers many restaurants where you can drink and eat to your heart's content, but for those of you that prefer to watch your waistline while on vacation, have no fear, Cancun is also home to eateries that offer delicious, healthy food.
Vegan Planet, located in downtown Cancun, is beloved by local vegans and non-vegans. 100% Natural, also located downtown, has been open for many years and is frequented by both tourists and locals. Healthy eaters can also find La Troje and La Pasteleria downtown. For an upscale experience try Les Cepages, Du Mexique or Peter's Restaurante.
In the Hotel Zone, Le Natura, located at km 9.5 of Blvd. Kukulcan, serves fresh smoothies, breakfast, lunch, dinner and even has a vegetarian menu. Order grilled fish at El Fish Fritanga. Fantino in the Ritz-Carlton Cancun serves cuisine prepared with the finest ingredients and they are happy to oblige vegans, vegetarians and gluten-free diners.
Other healthy vacation choices include, saying no to the tortilla chips served with your ceviche or skipping the buffets and sticking with ala carte restaurants.
