Vegging Out

Veg Hot Spot: Salvia at Sandos Caracol Eco Resort & Spa

This summer, an all-vegetarian restaurant debuted at Mexico’s Sandos Caracol Eco Resort & Spa, taking the destination’s eco-friendliness up a notch. We like that veg food will fuel such onsite volunteer activities as the SOS Marine Sea Turtles and Mangrove Swamps Cradle of Life environmental protection projects. Plus, the kitchen at Salvia contributes to the composting stations that, along with solar panels, help the beachfront getaway earn its eco-cred. Here, intel about Salvia’s menu—which includes raw options—from chef Milton Landa.

Here are some of the hippest places for vegan eats in that other city by the bay.
