So DH and I are celebrating our 30th anniversary this summer. I was thinking Punta Cana, Aruba or another cruise (been on 9). I know the cruises are very safe food wise, not so sure about the other 2 and an all inclusive. Any suggestions, I have been to neither and this is our first big vacation being gluten-free. Just realized I'm 6 months free next week. Yip, Yip hooray.
Appreciate any suggestions, thanks

I leave for Aruba in two days, my second visit but first time being Gluten Free, I found many restaurants with gluten free menu's online and if I was interested in others I sent them an email, sometimes specifically asking about a dish, everyone responded and sounded like they had an awareness. I also saw on an Aruba bulletin board I follow some people that had a lot of success in the past several years there. I will be gone for 10 days or so and will report back.

I don't know if you are still decieding on your trip. But here is what I learned in Aruba. We ate out for all meals and only once did I really have to work hard at asking the right questions so that I could feel comfortable enough that she understood what I was asking. Otherwise everyone had a very good knowlege of Gluten Free and what it meant and what was safe for me. One day though a lot of things were not open and we were starving and decided on a chain since I thought it would be safest, that was the only time I got glutened.

Saying all that, I did a lot of research first, and sent emails to anyplace I even thought we might eat at and asked if they could accomidate me and what I could have, I printed those and keep that all in the car in case I needed it. Some places have gluten free menu's online too.

The grocery stores really only had your naturally gluten free foods, no real speciality foods, like crackers, or bread, beer or any of that stuff. We took some of that with us, crackers, pepperoni etc.

If you have any specific questions please feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer. And if you do choose to go and would like to take a great tour let me know.
