As you can imagine, traveling can throw a wrench into anyone’s normally healthy routine. That’s exactly why I write posts like these. I want to help my fellow travelers find the best stores and restaurants for eating organic while traveling.

This edition is specifically for Playa Del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico. We’ve had a home base here for a few months while we’re exploring the area

These are our favorites:


Bio Natural (restaurant/store)

“Bio” as the locals call it, serves up an extensive menu of vegetarian and vegan fare. They take pride in their creative dishes and this is a popular hangout for the healthy crowd in Playa. We eat there regularly enough to know just about every employee by name. Probably the best known spot to eat organic in Playa Del Carmen.

Did I mention it’s got an awesome little store attached to it? They sell everything from organic produce (limited) and meats to treats, bath and beauty products, and supplements. If you’re in need of something natural, this is the place to check first. They’re selection is great!



Bio Organico (restaurant / store)

Another excellent spot to eat healthy and tasty food, Bio Organico is a little further down the road but still very conveniently located. They have a wide variety of dishes available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A great place to eat organic in Playa Del Carmen.

They also have a well stocked store with many of the same offerings as Bio Natural. Health and beauty products abound on one side, with lots of great food items on the other.

Totally vegan, probably the healthiest place of all of those listed here. Lots of tasty treats, smoothies, and both raw and cooked dishes to satisfy anyone’s appetite.

Go see Miriam in their store and she can order any organic produce you’d like if they don’t already have it in stock. The store also has supplements and really nice baked goods.



La Ceiba / Dac

30 Avenida Nte. 274, Playa del Carmen, Q.R.

La Ceiba is the restaraunt in front of one of the main markets in Playa. They have healthy, tasty food, and some of the dishes have organic ingredients from the store.

Dac is a well known source for (non-organic) fruits and veggies, but they tend to have a cooler full of organic greens and a several non-perishable organic goods on offer.

Interestingly enough, MEGA has a decent selection of organic produce, plus a few other items scattered throughout the rest of the store. There are plenty of low quality, junky foods to ignore, but MEGA is a good place to do a bit of one stop shopping and pick up a few organic items while you’re at it.

Let me know!

There are few other places with organic offerings (salads mostly) but they are few and far between. Let me know which places are your favorites and if you think I need to add to my list by commenting below. Here’s to your health!
