Your Jungle Vegan Home Away From Home

Vegan Restaurant, Costa Rica

We know how tough it can be finding a resort that can accommodate vegan diets, or raw food or seafood-only diets. Luckily, at Ylang Ylang Restaurant & Bar we offer menus full of options suited to such diets. While the exotic adventures and tropical atmosphere may be what you’re looking for to get away from home, changing your diet is not always an option, so we are happy to provide that piece of “home away from home” while still providing interesting and exotic dishes.

Take a peek at our restaurant menus here.

We use only the freshest ingredients, and our produce is mainly organic for all our dishes. You can be sure that you are getting the very best that our Costa Rica beach resort has to offer.

We know that one of the main parts of any good vacation is the food. Good food may not be what you talk about when you get back home, but we know that bad food will be. We also understand the importance of serving in a relaxing atmosphere to ensure you get the most out of your vacation time and your hotel restaurant.

Think you won’t be able to find something you love? Think again! Our talented chefs are prepared to meet all palette challenges. We have the ability to create seafood, vegan, and raw food meals for a truly diverse grouping of dishes. It can be hard to meet the needs of a vegan, vegetarian or pescitarian diet, but at Ylang Ylang, we do what we can to accommodate all diets. Our menu is sure to have something you love.

“Every meal we had was absolutely delicious! Not only was the food incredible, but the presentation was beautiful. You could tell that a lot of love went into cooking every dish.” – Comment From a Recent Guest

We hope that your experience with us is as happy and delicious as can be. Like the rest of our staff, our chefs do everything in their power to make your visit a memorable one.

Montezuma, Costa Rica Travel Tips

Montezuma, Costa Rica is a popular traveling destination for those one a budget. It’s also the town nearest Ylang Ylang Beach Resort, so of course we want to help people get there safely, with as little trouble as possible.

1. Best Airport: San Jose (SJO) or Liberia (LIR)

Although there are more flights heading into SJO, most of them leave in the morning, which is unappealing to people who don’t like mornings or morning airport shuffles.

Of course, if you fly into LIR, your two travel options available are a rental car or private transfer. A Shared Shuttle is also an option, but like flights into SJO, it is only available in the morning, often just once a day, so planning on using the Shared Shuttle can be tricky, and if your flight is delayed, you might miss it.
