I don’t understand how an all inclusive is not veetarian friendly as I hav always seen many veggie options. Vegan would be a lot harder IMO but unless you are looking for a facility that does not serve meat/animal products at all, you should be fine at any AI. That being said I saw a review of Zoetry in MX on the Bee and was impressed by the healthy food options they may be worth a second look for veggie friendly eating.

My husband and I went on a two week honeymoon in Maui. We are both strict vegan and I have a serious allergy to dairy, so we can’t eat out much. What we ended up doing was scounting out veg friendly places on yelp ahead of time, then driving to different towns (Lahaina, Kahana) to try them. Thai food is almost always okay if you order it without fish sauce. We also found a whole foods and several local vegetarian/vegan grocery stores. We stayed in a timeshare and Darling Husband wisely insisted on a full kitchen. It helped make the trip so much more enjoyable when we could prepare our own food a good part of the time. I hope this helps!

I was going to say Asia as well, or North Africa e.g. Morocco. We went to Sri Lanka and as a Buddhist country, there was a huge amount of choice for vegetarians and vegans. Lots of amazing tropical fruit as well Smile

Japan could be a very good bet for you. They do have fish stock “dashi” in a lot of foods but other than that it is pretty easy to eat vegan/vege there. 

Enjoy your honeymoon!

If you go to Vegas AND you love pets – stop by the Best Friends Sanctuary in Kanab, UT for a free tour and to meet dogs and cats and other animals.  They also have a cafeteria that is all vegan for like $4!

Vegas is great for vegetarian and vegans assuming you plan ahead. The Wynn properties, in particular, are great and every restaurant in these properties have veg options as Steven Wynn is a vegan! When we were in Vegas, all of the places we went to had vegetarian (some likely vegan) options but I wouldn’t say there was a lot of options at each place.

I’ve been dead set on going to Maravilla Mountain in Puerto Rico for my honeymoon since… well… before I was engaged.  It’s more of a rustic type place than a big resort type place, but it looks amaaaazing and the owner gets rave reviews for her vegan cooking (check out tripadvisor reviews – it’s 100% positive and she gets compared to the best vegan NYC chefs!)  http://maravillamountain.com/

Check out happycow’s listings for veggie-friendly destinations all around the world – that’s where I found Maravilla Mountain!  http://www.happycow.net/travel/bb_retreats.html

Whatever you do, do NOT go on a cruise.  Seriously, I lost weight on my cruise honeymoon due to lack of things to eat.  Cereal, salad bar, and some desserts were my only culinary options.  It is something that didn’t occur to me in advance but I will definitely be more aware of it in the future.
