Vegetarian and vegan travelers may have noticed that their meal options while visiting Mexico have increased significantly in recent years – and Sayulita is no exception.

While the town’s small size makes it hard for too many restauranteurs to venture into the market, a lot of spots now cater to various dietary needs. Although not every establishment on this list is strictly meatless, here are the best options for vegetarians and vegans visiting Sayulita.

Veggie Land

Restaurant, Vegetarian, $$$
Save Place
One of the few places in town that commit 100% to only serving vegan and vegetarian cuisine, Veggie Land is open all day for all three meals and is influenced by traditional Mexican cooking methods. The owners source fresh produce from local farmers, allowing for a farm-to-table experience that appeals to any type of eater. Some of the menu’s highlights include the taco mestizo – an homage to tacos al pastor prepared with soy instead of pork – and the creamy, soy milk-based pasta Alfredo.

The charming corner café is not fully vegan or vegetarian, but it has enough options to suit everyone’s individual needs – even Bulletproof coffee, popular with the paleo and keto diet crowd. Some of the best items on the menu that have no animal products are the enchiladas and the potatoes with veggies. The coffee alone is definitely worth a visit.

While this taco restaurant does serve a lot of meat-based dishes, the meatless section on the menu takes up quite a bit of space and is truly delicious. Some of the vegetarian tacos on offer include garlic mushrooms, poblano chile strips with cheese and carrot “tinga” – a dish normally made from shredded chicken in a chipotle and tomato sauce. The hibiscus flower quesadilla is a must. Its location near the main square combined with the reasonable prices ensure a steady flow of customers.
