Groceries delivered

Recommended Posts

Months ago there was a post that mentioned a catering service that would deliver groceries to your room. This was mentioned because someone had ordered the food to be delivered before her arrival. Can anyone remember who it was? I swore I saved the website, but now can't find it.

 

Thanks

Hmmm....well, you could always send an inquiry to Lazy Gourmet. I see on their website they offer "location catering" - not sure what that means, but it can't hurt to ask. Perhaps they could steer you in the right direction if this is not something they do.

 

I would probably just do it myself! Hit the Mega &/or Costco.

I don't have a Costco card. Does MEga require membership? Anyway, I am still debating renting a car. I wish I knew how easy it is to get around in Cabo.

Thanks for the help/.

There are plenty of stores you could go to that don't require membership. And I would definitely reccomend renting a car. The only confusing part in Cabo is when you first get into downtown...but its just like navigating any other city you've never been to.

Here's some info I pulled from a great review on tripadvisor.com (Upscale Thirtysomething's Guide to Cabo - TripAdvisor) that lays out food shopping options:

3. Food: Costco, Cabo San Lucas http://www.costco.com

Hopefully you found your way to a timeshare or other hotel with a fridge and kitchenette. It's a great way to be frugal with the meaningless breakfast and lunches so that you can have the world class dinners available in both Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Costco has about 50% of the items you'll need for a week of feeding yourselves and the kids. For example, we always pick up water bottles, some wine and liquor, sodas, trail mix, etc. See our note on the supermarkets and La Europea for the rest of what you'll need.Click the image to open in full size.
4. Food: Soriana Supermarket or Mega Supermarket http://www.soriana.com.mx

(I cannot find the URL to Mega Supermarket but who cares!) If you're following the LAWorldTraveler upscale 30-something approach to Cabo where you'll have your fridge and kitchenette, you'll quickly realize that Costco is great, but not one-stop-shopping. Soriana and Mega are two similar supermarket chains that will remind any Gringo from the States of Wal-Mart. Soriana can be found about 2 miles north on the highway leading to Todos Sandos just before you enter Cabo San Lucas. Mega is best for visitors staying in San Jose or close by on the corridor between the two cities and is at the traffic circle about 2 miles from the edge of San Jose (where the McDonald's is). We always pick up vegetables, cold cuts, cereal, milk, bagels, etc. from these supermarkets. Don't forget to pick up plastic bags and aluminum foil if you're staying a week--trust us, you'll need it.Click the image to open in full size.
5. Food: La Europea Supermarket http://www.laeuropea.com.mx

Whether you go at the beginning of your trip or the end, La Europea is, I'm fairly certain, the best place to go with the least expensive high-end wines and spirits and, to my knowledge, the ONLY place you can go in Cabo for $1 six-packs of Corona or Pacifico (depends on the day or maybe year). There are at least 6 world class tequilas there--from 1942 to Herradura to Don Julio to Jose Cuervo 1800 Anejo or the private reserve. All are priced at nearly 60% of what you'll pay in the US so bring room in your suitcase (lord knows you can't bring liquids in the airplane...). They also have a great selection of pate's, tapenades and other upscale yuppie snacky stuff we love. La Europea is located about a mile east of the Home Depot (yup, one here, too) on the north side of the corridor highway. I think it's closed Sundays.
