My daughter has a gluten allergy. Are there many places that offer gluten friendly options on Ambergris Caye
There are but usually inadvertantly. We had lunch with a friend who can't tolerate it a few weeks ago in San Pedro. He said it was relatively easy, eating tacos with corn tortillas, salads etc.
Ok, thanks. I was hoping she would have a good variety
Some of the best restaurants in San Pedro offer healthy options for people with special dietary needs. Blue Water Grill, Wild Mango’s and Casa Picasso have a few gluten-free options on their menus. They all have great drink selection too. Poco Loco's outdoor covered food court has a great salad bar.
If your gluten intolerance is severe make sure to tell your wait staff so they can inform the kitchen to be extra careful with your food preparations.

Our daughter is also celiac - with no tolerance to cross contamination . You can email the restaurants . So far the Hive ( shakes - mostly entire gluten free menu with to go options , coco cabana also responded with full understanding of cross contamination, Mesa ( for breakfast ) and the nicest most understanding Chef was at Wild Mangos . The Mata Grocery store was also very accomadating and can tell you what she has GF.
I’m sure there are other restaurants.

My daughter and I are Gluten free and this will be our second trip to AC. We had no problem at all. We ate all over the Caye. We even took a taxi to Caye Caulker and we stopped at a restaurant on the beach on the way to "the split". We had whole fish which they prepared just for us. We ate tacos at a stand near the airport and conch ceviche & papusas on middle st.. We stayed at Ramone's we ate there twice no problem.
