A Vegan in Cancun

Since going vegan, I haven't traveled much. I was in Israel a year ago, where following a vegan diet was surprisingly easy. However, Mexico will likely be more challenging.

Soy vehetariana = I am a vegetarian.
Sin carne = Without meat. But, to most doesn't exclude lard, chicken, pork, meat broth, etc.
Es sin carne, pollo y pescado? = Is it without meat, chicken, and fish?
Es sin caldo de pollo o manteca de puerco? = Is it without chicken broth or pork lard?

I'm a little nervous about this aspect of the trip... I'll let you all know how it goes!

Well, having traveled all over Mexico I can tell you that you will have an easier time in a place like Cancun that caters to a more turistas and therefore an American style diet. However, in every town I went to there was often a veg restaurant.
Breakfast is easy because there is an abundance of fresh fruit.

Oh, have you been to (international vegetarian union site) . You can search a country that way and it will give you links to veg sites where you can find places to eat.

I have been vegetarian for a few yars and decided to become fegan recently. I switched from Fat free milk to soy milk but according to what a friend says it may not be that healthy. Apparently it is related to hypothyroidism and it may cause certain allergies. I always thought isoflavones have great benefits but now I'm not so sure.

As a doctor I wonder if you consume soy products and if you recommend given up regular milk (cow milk)for soy milk.
