Great stand in the Markadito to grab a quick vegan burrito, salad, smoothie or tacos! The lentil tacos were delicious and the women who work there are very friendly

My daughter is vegan and it can be hard to find decent vegan foods while eating out. Pura vegan had great fresh vegan food options and amazing flavour. Try the lentil tacos and the pad thai!.

Finding Pura Vegan and their delicious food while traveling was a real treat. Tamarindo is a bustling and busy tourist destination on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. There is plenty of typical Costa Rican fare, but also a large amount of foreign and American...More
