When you’re on vacation, many of us really look forward to dining out at local restaurants and trying new local dishes and flavors.

But sometimes, you also want to pick up a few staples and/or cook your favorite comfort food from home so you need to know where to shop. We’re going to give you a run down of some of the main grocery stores in Puerto Morelos, but stay tuned to this post as we’re planning to add more information and some of the smaller stores as time goes on.

A couple of things to keep in mind when grocery shopping in Mexico:

    •  Bring your own reusable shopping bags, as stores don’t provide paper or plastic bags for free like they do at home. If you’re here and don’t have any bags, don’t worry – you can purchase them at the checkout.
    • The folks that bag your groceries are not employees of the grocery store. They are typically retired folks who volunteer there in hopes of earning extra income by receiving tips from patrons. I personally tip more if I have a full cart than when I’m just running in for a couple items – anywhere from 10-30 pesos.
    • Beware of where you park at the Chedraui by the highway. If a sudden rainstorm hits while you’re inside, you’ll come out to find the parking lot filled with a large lake of water in the middle, so park around the edges of the lot (which is higher ground!) if it looks like it may rain.
    • Can’t get to the store? There are a number of delivery services in town that can grab the items you need. See our blog post about delivery services in Puerto Morelos for the details.

Two of the main grocery stores in Puerto Morelos both belong to the Chedraui brand.
