Unleash Your Inner Foodie: The Best Food at the Beach

When you’re busy planning all the things you’re going to do on your next vacation, there’s a good chance you’re going to include R&R, fun in the sun, delicious drinks and of course, you're hoping for even better food. If you’re looking for recommendations on where to go for some delicious dishes at the Beach, here’s what we recommend:

The first of our favorites is a resort that promotes health-friendly food options, while still not sacrificing on any flavor or taste. Any of the Zoetry brand resorts are great for the health-conscious foodie in us all. This chain of resorts strives to promote health and wellness throughout each individual hotel, so you can expect to see dining options that are just as tasty as they are healthy.

For instance, Zoetry Casa del Mar in Los Cabos has an on-site nutrition expert to guide you on your dining options at any of the resort’s three restaurants. You should only expect the best at this resort with award-winning gourmet and organic dining options, as well as amazing wine collections. This resort also offers Unlimited-Luxury (R), which includes all of your meals and beverages, including international premium alcohol brands, a fresh bottle of champagne and seasonal fruit daily, a welcome bottle of tequila and even a relaxing 20-min massage per guest per stay.

Organic and gourmet dining options can be found at nearly every restaurant at Zoetry Casa del Mar in Los Cabos.

Voted by Conde Nast Traveler readers as one of the "Top 100 Hotels in the World," you can bet that El Dorado Royale, A Spa Resort, by Karisma is another absolute foodie must. This is an adult-only retreat that offers a gourmet all-inclusive plan that pampers your palate while you swim in AAA Four Diamond Luxury.

Spend your days bouncing between the resort’s 12 freshwater pools, as well as scoot over to a swim up bar for a cold, refreshing cocktail. Don’t worry; with 10 in-pool bars you’ll hardly ever go thirsty. After a body scrub or beachfront sky massage, you can head to your Infinity Pool Swim-up Casita Suite to get ready for the night’s adventures.

Seven gourmet restaurants tempt your taste buds with selections like lobster lasagna from five-star D’Italia or Pacific Rim cuisine from Kampai. With no reservations needed, you can venture over to Fuentes Culinary Theatre, where flat screens give you're a sneak peek into your food being prepared by Michelin-trained chefs. And as the night comes to close, sip on a martini while enjoying live music at Las Guacamayas.

Another award winning hotel option is Dreams Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa.
