Questions re: Purchasing OOT items and favors in Cancun
Posted 04 November 2008 - 08:40 PM
I was just wondering if anyone had ever visited the Walmart or Costco in Cancun? I'm toying with the idea of purchasing our favors, decorations, OOT items, etc. at these larger retail chains instead of hauling huge amounts of stuff in my suitcase.
Does anyone know of any posters here that have gone this route? Do you think that this would be good idea?
Also, for anyone that has recently been to Cancun and visited these stores, would the selection be comparable to the items we could find at our local Walmart / Costco?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks is advance!

Sorry I can't give you more advice but that's what I know of. I went to the flea market in the hotel strip back in May and they had trinkety stuff - like shot glasses but they all seemed overpriced. I guess the Peso is catching up with the Dollar in value!
how far exactly is it from Moon Palace? How much was the cab drive?

Did they happen to sell fresh flowers at the Costco? I would love to be able to buy a whole bunch of roses and use the petals for our flowergirl to toss down the aisle. Our resort doesn't allow silk rose petals.
