Top Organic Local Restaurants For Your Riviera Maya Vacation


In the search of services during your holidays in Mexico, food seems one of the most important. Not all visitors vacationing here have the same dietary needs. Thankfully Riviera Maya has different options to please every one of them. Holidays are coming and most of the food options we recommend, offer a healthy option to your regular vacation food. These recommendations are based on our perception of great service, quality of food and best rates. Healthy does not have to be boring or bland. These restaurants have excellent authentic cuisines, and their menus are 100% authentic. We have collected their details for you to be prepared on your next trip to the Yucatan Peninsula. Leave the limitations at home and enjoy of the endless guilty-free Mexican flavors.

Organic And Healthy

Most of our travelers are focusing on healthier and authentic food choices during holidays. The reasons could be different. For health reasons, due to a strict diet or simply for personal taste but the options are out there. We just have to find them and lose fear of exploring the food in a foreigner country. There is no reason for you to be afraid of the terms; Vegan, Gluten-free, etc. No matter what your reasons might be, you will always find at least one option that fits you. Ingredients are basic in the process of organic meals. These restaurants shop or request their vegetables, fruits and primary items from local stores. By doing this they ensure the good quality and freshness of their final products. Organic options can be found in different restaurants of the area. We have listed the top ones but of course the list is longer. So we recommend you to always contact us to provide a more specific information for you.

Options In Puerto Morelos And Playa del Carmen

Clorofila restaurant

One of our favorite options in Puerto Morelos is Nicho restaurant. Perfect for breakfast, brunch and lunch. Is good, not just because of the menu choices which are heavenly, but also because of the rates and service. In Playa del Carmen we often visit Fresco Hábito, great for breakfast and lunch too. Their veggies and ingredients are always fresh. The service is kind and fast enough and rates are affordable for a restaurant only steps away from 5th Avenue. Clorofila and La Senda Restaurants are Vegan with a touch of raw options. Scrambled tofu tacos, enchiladas and fresh juices you will fall in love with. And for the ones with a sweet tooth, The Pitted Date for bakery and sweets is your best option. They also have paninis and delicious truffles for cacao lovers.

Options In Tulum and Sian Kaan

Co.Con Amor Tulum

La Hoja Verde is located right in the heart of Tulum pueblo, easy to access, everybody knows their location and with great options. We highly recommend the soja tacos and their juices. Co.Con Amor is also on our favorite and is on the road to Boca Paila. Scrambled tofu with beans and vegetables keep us addicted. The salads and rice bowls are to die for and the rates are good. Besides they have a small organic store where you can find homeopathic remedies and other ingredients that are hard to find at local grocery stores. At Charly´s Vegan Tacos you can find the best of both worlds; wonderful chicharron tacos for the plant base eaters who love a Mexican flavor. Or mushroom and quinoa bowls for visitors who prefer raw choices. No matter how often they keep changing their location, we will always follow their delicious tacos. Simple Restaurant and Restaurare restaurants are the top choices for raw, organic, healthy food. Simple Restaurant even has a special menu for celiac and Restaurare prefers to keep raw and organic options. Both excellent choices for lunch and dinner. If you want to treat your lover, these would be your top organic, healthy and delicious choices.  Don’t forget we are pretty knowledgeable when it comes to booking local services. So we of course have a long list of Chefs who can provide cook service at your vacation home. And they are able to cover every dietary need you have. Vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, you name it!
