10 Destination Hotels and B&Bs for Animal Lovers
Traveling as a vegan can be hard, especially if you want to travel in style. But if I’ve learned anything from running Unicorn Goods, the world’s largest ethical vegan catalog, it’s that you don’t have to sacrifice to live by your ethics. Luckily, now there are lots of comfortable and downright luxe accommodations for vegans in some of the world’s most desirable destinations.
To prove it, I’ve rounded up my top 10 vegan-friendly destination stays in America from the Caribbean to California.
All of of these hotels, retreats, and bed & breakfasts go out of their way to accommodate vegans. Either they are 100% vegan or publicly vegetarian and vegan-friendly. Yup, that’s right. You can have your (vegan) cake and eat it too. No sacrificing.
To get you ready to go, you’ll need your travel gear, resort wear, and, of course, a good read. We’ve got you covered for vegan clothing and fashion edits that are travel-worthy and packable. Oh, and can you take me with you? I pack light.
But first, here are a few vegan traveling tips:
- If you stay at a place that is vegetarian but not 100% vegan, be sure to let them know when you book. A simple note like, “Hi! I’m really looking forward to staying with you soon. I wanted to let you know in advance that I’m vegan and don’t eat eggs or dairy. Thank you for being so accommodating!”
- Look up vegan restaurants in the area in advance. Happy Cow is a great resource.
- Bring some vegan snacks in case of an emergency. Thrive Market is a great resource, or Vegan Cuts.
- Stay away from activities that may abuse animals, like horse back riding. You don’t know how the animals are treated, and you don’t want to inadvertently support animal abuse. Think whale watching and birding, which are more or less noninvasive and respect the animals.
