so i recently been wanting to travel to south america for various tourist reasons.



Has anyone been to South America? In particular, I want to go to Peru and Brazil.



I'd like to know how veg friendly it is. Is it a very carnivorous place like Spain or is there decent vegetarian options around the place?



thanks

Skylarkkkkkkkkk...? She's lived South o' the Border, no?



If it's anything like Spain, good luck. Ugh, I still remember the guy hacking a chicken apart for me at the grocery store. "If we have chickens, we have breasts!" *shudder* Sorry, weird memory. Wasn't veg then, but... eww.

An easy thing to do is to pick towns with a couple of veggie restaurants listed above and plan your visit around them.

I've never been there, and it's really Central and not South America, but I've heard that Costa Rica is great in this regard. Just passing along second-hand information, though.

I decided to take my mum on vacation to South America for her birthday next month. I was concerned about finding a veg*n-friendly location that would be both affordable and have a lot of tourist-y adventure opportunities nearby.



In poking around on Priceline tonight, I happened upon what looks like the perfect option. I think I found my destination, folks. It's a VEGETARIAN resort in Costa Rica:
