5 Best Vegan Restaurants in Tulum

Tulum could quite well be the unofficial vegan capital of Mexico. The quaint streets of this beach town host a plethora of plant-based taco stands, restaurants, cafes and vegan conscious stores. Tulum is so pro-vegan and vegetarian, that it’s rare to find a meat-eating restaurant that doesn’t have at least two vegan options on the menu. Since there are so many delicious vegan restaurants to choose from, we have narrowed it down to our 5 best vegan restaurants in Tulum.

The Agency

1. Raw Love
Price: $$$
If you're looking for the ultimate vegan restaurant experience in Tulum, Raw Love may just be it. This spot is one of the most Instagrammed vegan restaurants in town and is home to the famous “Ten a la Luz” structure by Daniel Popper. You can expect creative superfood dishes such as their raw dark chocolate and honey zucchini pasta, tossed in a creamy garlic sauce. Thanks to its “Influencer status”, Raw Love is a little on the expensive side, but all the dishes are raw, vegan, made fresh daily and delicious! Tip: Although the famous Raw Love is located in the hotel zone of Tulum, If you’re looking for a more relaxed experience, they also have a secondary location in the town centre.

The owner of Aguacate Limon is a dedicated vegan himself, so you can trust that his dishes are nothing short of amazing.

On the menu, you can also find plant-based tacos and their own artisanal gelato.

Hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Tulum’s main streets, El Vegetariano, Mar y Tierra is the perfect spot for relaxed vegan dining.
