Walmart in Mexico~ probably a stupid question

Recommended Posts

Hoping those of you that have ventured out shopping can answer this for me. I'm planning to rent a car and head to Walmart to pick up some snacks, a cooler and beer. When I go to pay the price they will tell me will be in pesos right? Not dollars. I just don't want to look like an idiot or overpay! TIA :)

The walmart in Cabo showed both. They will first tell you pesos. If you asked they press a button and it converts. I thought the same thing.

Be careful renting a car. You have to take the insurance even if you put it on your credit card. We ended up not getting one because it was so expensive.

Kelly, if I were you I would just get a cab. Its cheaper, and you dont have to worry about the laws and regualtions.

That's a good idea! I never even thought of that. Thanks!

So you'll be in Cancun?

In PLaya, the Walmart was hellish. Nothing was where we thought it would be, no one could speak any English (not their fault obviously, but it made asking for things difficult), and they didn't carry lots of items we thought they'd have.

Drinks and snacks should be easy though.

 

Ours in Playa just had $ signs but they were all Pesos. That did trip us up a lot.

 

Good luck!

 

I'd get the collapsible cooler at home and bring it though.

 

A :)

if you get in a situation where prices are only available in pesos (which shouldnt happen, but in case you have trouble communicating that you want to know prices in USD) it's generally safe to divide the number of pesos by 10. that will roughly give you an idea of how much you are spending in USD. right now there are actually about 13 pesos to 1 USD.

The prices in the Walmart of Playa are shown in pesos. The sign says "$" but this is the same sign for pesos or dollars. Remember that this is where the local people shop, so the price is in their currency.

 

As regards renting a car - we got an economy one this week-end. 10$ per day, plus insurances (I take only PAI as CDW and other "W" are already included in my Amex) = total 60$ for 3 days, the same price that one way to the hotel... and we went to Playa and other places so it ended up being a good deal.

 

To get to Walmart in Playa, from the highway when you're coming from Cancun, turn left when you see a big sign "cerveceria Cuahautemoc" on the left side of the road (probably a factory). You should be on 10th or 12th street. The Walmart will be on your right when you get to 30a or 25a avenida (it's on 8th street between 25a and 30a). Good luck ! I speak Spanish so it probably helped wink.gif I found what I wanted (champagne, liquors, etc).

 

If you get lost ask the police they are super cool. wink.gif

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
