Vegan in Costa Rica

Postby grahato » Sat May 22, 2010 4:38 pm

Does anyone know if it's fairly easy to get by as a vegan in Costa Rica? I know that rice and beans are a staple, which is great, but I was worried if things are generally cooked in lard or chicken stock.

Having said that, I am definitely looking forward to the fruit feast!

Just got back from this trip on Sunday and though I am not vegan or vegetarian, it was very easy to see that people could get fruits and salads easily. Also they love to use beans in everything. Not sure what they cook things in however, might be something not vegan. Most places though have vegetable sandwiches, or pastas. I guess it depends on how much you are willing to bend when you go abroad. The fruits are amazing though and you can find great fruit plates, smoothies, etc... everywhere!
Have a great trip!!

I just wanted to add that if you are in Puerto Viejo (Talemanca), there is an awesome vegan restaurant that serves food all day. Veronica's, I think. On the main road.
