Traveling To Cabo San Lucas

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, well we're taking a trip to Cabo San Lucas and I'm fretting the eating issue. I know Mexico is big on corn but if anyone has been there and can shed some light on "safe" places to eat I would GREATLY appreciate it. I've tried to google gluten free in Cabo but not much is out there...........thank you in advance!

I was in Cabo last week and had a great lunch at the Sandbar. Had beef nachos (make sure to ask that the chips are maize (corn) not harina (flour), fresh guacamole and salsa. YUMM! The best part of the Sandbar is that you can sit in the beach chair (free) with umbrella (just need to order beverage and /or food. You can get to the Sandbar by taxi or water taxi from pier. Locals will know where it is.

For dinner, try the Trailer Park. Serious, best lobster restuarant. Sits right in the middle of a trailer park.

In general, Shrimp and lobster tacos are usually gluten-free (make sure they are grilled, not fried)with maize torillas (available at most restuarants). Fresh guacolmole - I never had a problem. Avoid anything with sauce (ie: mole). Fresh fruit is good, bananas (most US bananas come from Mexico), mango, payapa, pineapple, etc. Beans Ihave done ok with. I avoid the rice, as it is usually spiced and don't want to take a chance. Cabo Wabo tequila if you are looking for a drink.

Ciel and Bonafoundt bottled water are good and readily available in Mexico.

Recommend taking some of your own gluten-free food for snacks, breakfast, etc.

Have a great time!!!

Hi there,

I am heading off to the Baja soon too, and have just started researching the terms I will need to be familiar with in order to shop gluten free (also dairy and corn free). I would be happy to share if that would be helpful. I will be doing most of my own cooking as I am going on a mule-packing trip, not doing a traditional style holiday. I am taking my backpacking stove and buying and packing my own food. Have fun on your trip!
