Costco — if you have a family, be sure to make the required stop here.

Sorry, but the meat and seafood are lacking here — buy your steaks at Mega on the ride in from the airport (Walmart has great steaks as well). They make up for the meat/seafood situation by having great prices on alcohol (and just about everything else). You may notice that your standard “Costco items” are more expensive in Cabo — just remember you’re essentially on an island and it just plain costs more to transport merchandise to Cabo (1000 miles from San Diego).

Two prices are posted at Costco: cash and credit card.

You’ll feel right at home, as there’s the required snack bar as well. Hot dogs, pizza, sodas… We just love the¬†jalapeno dispenser (similar to the relish dispenser).¬†One of the best views in Cabo.

Mega – Commercial Mexicana

Mega is located at the roundabout in San Jose del Cabo (where the airport toll road heads north from the 4-lane highway). Decent prices and a butcher department that is stocked for Americans. Hint: if you’ve caught a taxi or CaboConcierge limo from the airport, ask them to stop at Mega so you can do your shopping. It’s right on the way and most taxi drivers won’t mind the stop (for a few $$ tip). This is the best use of your time!

Located on the Carretera at the intersection of Blvd. Antonio Mijares s/n Col. 1 de Mayo, San Jose del Cabo Tel. 142-4524

Chedraui for groceries, pharmacy

Chedraui (pronounced ched-rou-wee; formerly “CCC” or Centro Comercial Californiano).

Great locals market, located on the road to Todos Santos (about three miles from Villa La Estancia, on the right side just after the sharp right turn at the light). Great prices on alcohol and groceries. They have fresh tortillas and a bakery. Check out the avocados and also the salsa aisle.
