Traveling To Ecuador And Colombia

Recommended Posts

Hi All:

In a few months I will be travelling to Ecuador and Colombia and will be there for about 6-8 weeks. I will be only eating out and was wondering if anyone here knew what foods are gluten free that I could order?

Or what staple foods could I rely on to get me through. I have never been to these places before and not sure of what their markets will have. Can anyone shed some light?

Thanks

SydneyGF

Hi,

I haven't been to Ecuador or Colombia either, but I know that fruits and veggies are always available and that meat, especially in Colombia, is a major staple. From living in Mexico for a few years, I found that the foods prepared in the smaller local restaurants didn't have flours or starches added to them. I'm sure if you do a websearch for the cities you're going to you could find a lot of information that other tourists have posted.

I've been to Ecuador, but I wasn't gluten-free back then. There is always lots of fresh fruit.

Okay, I just completely lost my train of thought. I'll get back and post later. I think I need to have a snack. LOL

Are you traveling by yourself or with a group? Colombia World Tours offers gluten-free options on all of their trips throughout the country.
