The locations below not suiting your fancy? We recommend working with travel agent Lesley Hock-lhayden@travelleaders.com.

There are a variety of room types at the inn, making it an ideal home base for exploring the hundreds of vineyards in the area.

2. Jovial Foods GF Italian Style Getaway

Lucca, Italy

Jovial Foods, a key player in the gluten free industry, offers unbelievable culinary adventures in the heart of Tuscany. Gluten-free travelers can participate in a 1-week experience that includes accommodations at an Italian villa, gluten-free cooking classes and meals, and opportunities to explore the region.

3. Anamaya Resort

The Anamaya Resort is the ultimate Costa Rican getaway for gluten-free travelers. Also home to renowned yoga retreats and teacher trainings, this resort is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy a stress-free vacation. As if that wasn’t enough, Anamaya’s restaurant is 100% gluten-free and offers fresh, organic options to guests every day.

4. Sandals All-Inclusive Vacations

Caribbean Islands

Sandals resorts can be found throughout the Caribbean and make for perfect island getaways. The resorts offer unlimited amenities to guests – including a myriad of dining options. Some Sandals resorts are better with gluten-free accommodations than others. We worked with travel agent Lesley Hock (lhayden@travelleaders.com) who made recommendations based on our wants and needs. We personally decided on Sandals South Coast and it was an absolute dream! As soon as you sit down at any of their restaurants, you are asked if you have food allergies. If so, the chef comes to your table to personally help guide you with your order. Eating was a breeze, and we never felt deprived… they even had gluten-free crepes! 

Have you been bitten by the travel bug? Get packing, because GF getaways await!

    We also recently stayed in Cabo, Mexico at Grand Fiesta Americana and all of their restaurants ask if you have food allergies when seating you. They had a large selection of GF meals. I was very impressed

      My husband was given contaminated food 3 out of 4 of his meals on Carnival! Ruined our whole trip and they did nothing to compensate us. Just said sorry he got sick ( in their minds it’s just a common illness not permanent damage to his body). Never again!!

      I’ve cruised with Princess before and it was a fabulous experience! I did notify them beforehand via their website of the dietary restriction for my peace of mind and further instructions. I steered clear of buffets (my norm anyway) and kept to the same dining room for most meals because I had a head waiter that became my own for the duration of my cruise. I’d do it again in a heartbeat. Disney is another cruise line to travel with and they tend to be more family friendly than Princess. There is another one that is smaller called MSC Cruises USA that has recently popped up in one of my GF groups. They are recognized with celiac associations for their amount of safety and awareness and apparently even pack you meals for your shore days. I’d love to give them a try!

    Went on Carnival cruise to Alaska and the gf options were minimal! Pretty disappointing that with such the huge fleet that they werent more accomodating. Most staff didnt even understand what gf was or what it even meant. I wouldnt go on Carnival if you are celiac.

    Got sick on a Carnival Cruise from the Buffet where they claimed that they had gluten free options, but the staff really did not understand, probably because most of them did not speak English. Dinner in the main dinning room was no problem, had one waiter who would give me the next night’s menu between the main entree and dessert to pick out my dinner for the next evening. Have been on two Celebrity cruises, and had no problems, even at the buffet. They have a separate oven for pizza and used separate pans for pasta and toast. Dinner worked the same as on Carnival. Overall, many more choices on Celebrity.
