Vegan travel in Spain

If you’ve been wondering whether you can eat a varied diet in Spain as a vegan, let us tell you: yes! Many traditional Spanish dishes are vegan; the Mediterranean food is rich in fruits, vegetables, nuts, etc. Dishes that were originally prepared with eggs and dairy products are also available as vegan alternatives in Spain.

In the land of tapas, you can choose from patatas bravas, olives, pimientos del padron, garbanzos con espinacas, and more. Vegan paella, tortilla and creamy soups are also popular and hopefully on your food to-do list. For dessert, try baked apples or polvorón and roscón de reyes magos. Spanish supermarkets also offer a wide range of vegan products.

Our beautiful socialbnb Vineyard Eladio in Granadilla de Abona offers you different accommodation options: Overnight in a shared room, a double room or in a fabulously equipped tent. On the property there is a traditional Canarian house, an outdoor dining area, rest areas and a space for yoga and meditation.

On site you can try new activities like surfing, kayaking, diving, snorkeling or even participate in a permaculture workshop. Vegan nutrition is given special priority here, so it’s easy for you to be accommodated as a vegan with no food restrictions. Breakfast, coffee and tea are even included in your stay.

Vegan travel in Thailand

As a vegan, you definitely don’t have to miss out on delicious food in Thailand. Even better, you can get your vegan meals here at very low prices! Vegan spring rolls, sticky rice with mango, Thai vegetable salad or Pad Thai and fried noodles with vegetables. Just don’t forget to unorder the egg here and there or sauces, such as oyster or fish sauce.

You can buy fresh melon, mango or papaya on every corner. Just as easy to find are drinking coconuts, nuts or vegan curries with vegetables and tofu. In supermarkets you can find the Buddhist “Jay Food”, which is marked by characters that look like a red 17 to us. This is vegan food that also does not contain garlic and onions and is eaten by monks.

Stay in the handcrafted bamboo wooden house Naucrates at the beautiful Horizon Eco Resort in Phang Nga. Each bungalow has its own balcony where you can enjoy your meals or a cool drink alone or in company. This is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and take in the beautiful natural surroundings.

Not far from this socialbnb is the village of Ban Lion, where you will find an insanely interesting turtle museum. Moreover, you will have the opportunity to participate in cooking classes and prepare Thai desserts with locals. This could give you inspiration for cooking and at the same time be a nice exchange with the locals.

Turquoise waters, stunning beaches and fun-loving people. Traveling along the coast not only brings a lot of joy, but also many friends. Backpackers love Thailand and also like to travel to the islands of the country. Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, Koh Tao and Koh Chang are especially popular among travelers. These stand for extremely special rural conditions.

Vegan travel in Ecuador

You will be pleasantly surprised how easy vegan travel can be in Ecuador. While the country’s dishes defy meat or fish, alternatives are often offered. From tofu lentil dishes to traditional potato soup to patacones, fried green plantains, you can bring enough variety into the food even as a vegan.

The supermarkets Megamaxi and Supermaxi offer you a wide range of vegan food. For example, you can easily prepare vegan empanadas. You can also find choclo, roasted corn, or chevitos chilenos, local donuts, on every street corner.

Our socialbnb Río Muchacho in Canoa offers you different accommodation options: either in a shared room or in your own accommodation. The accommodation is called “Carpintero”, which means “woodpecker” in English. If you keep your eyes open, it is quite possible that you will see a woodpecker.

On site, you can participate in hikes, gardening and cooking classes, or visit the adjacent eco-park. At Río Muchacho, the women of the community prepare vegan food that is mostly organic and sourced directly from the farm or nearby. The open kitchen is one of the central points on the property, where you can eat together with other travelers.

The country of Ecuador is located on the west coast of South America on the equator and convinces travelers due to its diverse landscape – from the Amazon jungle to the Andean highlands to the Galapagos Islands with a species-rich animal world. Discover the capital Quito with its magnificent palaces from the Spanish colonial period or let the impressive landscape take its effect on you. Mountain hikes, trekking tours and much more should be on your to-do list.
