Walmart in Cancun?

Recommended Posts

This is probably a silly question, but...

 

Has anyone ever actually shopped there? Just wondering if we can count on getting things like glass votive cups, OOT supplies, beach pails for the kids, etc, like we would at our Walmart here at home...

When we went we were looking for snacks, water & drinks so we didn't really pay attn to the regular stuff. They'll probably have the pail & stuff for kids since lots of people bought water things from there. But it did look like any other Walmart.

There are 3 Walmarts in Cancun. They are department stores as well as grocery stores. You can find just about everything you find in the states however, there is not as much variety and the price is usually double. There is also Costco and Sam's Club. Hope that helps!

I second the last post. I went to Walmart in August on my site visit. We were definitely focused on food and water (it was the day before the hurican hit) but I walked through the other departments. I remember them having EVERYTHING - linens, candles, decorations, etc - but the prices were def. a lot higher than back home.

I agree with the last post. I went in December and it was more expensive and I was leary of buying some of the snacks b/c I knew my guests wouldn't recognize the brand. But they did have bottled water and pales for the kids

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
