    Drum roll please…

    Ladies, this is what I found after scouring the aisles of Costco in Cabo. I hope I got everything you all needed, plus I threw in a few fun things as well! Without further ado, here are Costco options and pricing!

    All prices are in pesos!

    Liquor:
    Bacardi 1.75L $159
    Absolute 1L $175
    Grey Goose 750ml $349
    Cuervo Margarita Mix 1L $43.51
    Malibu 75ml $139
    Jack Daniels 1L $295

    Tequila:
    Cuervo Espec. 990ml $105
    Corralejo 1L $175
    Cazadores 1L $215
    Don Julio Blanco 750ml $219
    Don Julio Reposado 1L $359

    Champagne & Wine (for Alisarosenbaum):
    Moet $495
    Moet Nectar $535
    Veuve $535
    Taittinger Rose $655
    Kirkland’s (this is Costco brand) $285
    Cook’s $98
    Yellowtail Shiraz $99
    They also had a great selection of wine, including Coppola, Blackstone, Ravenswood, etc.

    Beer:
    Corona (cans) Case $185
    Corona (bottles) Case $175
    Dos Equis $155
    They didn’t have any Pacifico, which is my favorite Mexican beer! They better get some in stock by November!

    Bottled Water/Cokes:
    Kirkland 16oz bottles, 35 bottles $70
    Kirkland baby bottles (maybe 8oz?), 70 bottles $12 (that doesn’t look right to me, might have jotted that one down wrong?)
    Diet Coke 24 cans $130 (the rest of the Cokes were in the same price range)

    Flowers (for Clussy75):
    24 Roses $169
    They had at the store 33 dozen roses, in red, pink, yellow, white, orange & peach
    Mixed bouquets $129

    Fun Food & OOT stuffers:
    Jelly Belly jelly beans $109 (can be put into small clear plastic bags with a sticker of your logo and tied with raffia, which would be so cute!)
    Chocolates filled with tequila, Malibu, Khalua, bag of approx. 50 pieces for $79
    Mini Tostitos (packaged in individual servings) 24 pack for $115
    Gigantic marshmallows (pink & white), maybe the size of two golf balls, perfect for S’mores! Didn’t get the price

    coreyphil, I did not find any mirrors or candles at Costco. I know, weird. I made FI walk up & down every aisle and neither of us saw any?

    Ok ladies, I think that’s it! Let me know if I have forgotten anything! Hope this helps!

            <squeal> Yay! Thank you so much Jill! This is GREAT! Ok, now I know we can get plenty of great extras to fill the OOT bags with from Costco and they have the colors of roses that we need as well. Excellent!

            Random question but did you by any chance see the little single serving mini bottles of liquor (really, tequila) anywhere in your ventures out to the stores? Also, did you hap upon any Los Cabos specific sports bottles or other fun Los Cabos specific kinda thing for OOT bags? I'm sure you had your head spinning with all the excitement but I figured I'd ask.

            You rock Jill!

              That's so helpful, anyone know this type of stuff at Sam's Club or Wal-Mart in Puerto Vallarta

                The only place I have seen the little bottles are at La Europea which is near Costco, maybe to the East. They had the mini bottles of tequila, but we didn't get there over our trip to price them out. They also sell alcohol, beer, gourmet snacks and they have a terrific selection of tequila and wine.

                But, we're going there probably on the Monday or Tuesday of our wedding week, so I'll be able to price them out then and report back! I remember they also have mini bottles of premade margaritas, which we were going to include too!

                It looks like there is a La Europea also in Cabo, near the marina? Here's their listing on Los Cabos Guide:
                La Europea - Wines - Liquors - Deli - Cabo San Lucas, Los Cabos, Mexico

                We didn't do much shopping for Cabo stuff, and I'm kicking myself now b/c I'm trying to find the perfect mexican tunic and the only one I like is on ebay and up to $100 now, so no, long answer, we didn't do any of that. But I can tell you there is a store directly across from Pancho's restaurant that we also visit and they have some great stuff. Swim coverups for the girls, all sorts of glassware, frames, magnets, home decor, etc. I think it's next door to a cigar store.

                  Awesome, then I'll check those places. Actually our wedding's a week before yours so this is what we'll work off of for these things. <HUGE EXCITEMENT WASHING OVER> .... ok, trying to breathe normally again. heh.

                  Premade margarita bottles sound awesome to include in bags! Wow! Good looking out Jill! May good wedding karma go flying your way cuz this is a great help to many of us.

                  Cheers!

                    So glad it's helpful! It was pretty easy to check it all out, and I would want someone to do the same for me, so I'm glad it all worked out. Although, I did just have a rush of angst that there won't be any mini bottles of tequila or margaritas left when I arrive! Ah! Don't buy them all! HA!
