Back from Cabo - this is what I found at Costco!!!

Recommended Posts

This is an awesome thread! Thank you so much. Sounds like the prices are pretty comparable to here. Do you happen to know if the Dos Equis was the amber or the lager (red or green label)? The reason I ask is because my FI loves the lager and wants to get a few cases when we get down there (he can't stand Corona). Now I just need to find out if we can bring in beer/liquor to an all-inclusive. I don't see why not, just means we aren't drinking their stuff! We'll sneak it in if we have to wink.gif

I don't remember! I want to say it was the green label, since that's the one I'm used to seeing, and would have remembered if it was different. I'll ask my FI if he remembers and get back to you!

Ok, thanks! It probably was the green, I think that's more common.

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!

Beer:

Corona (cans) Case $185

Corona (bottles) Case $175

They didnâ€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 doesnâ€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 Sâ€mores! Didnâ€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 thatâ€s it! Let me know if I have forgotten anything! Hope this helps!

You have to take into consideration that the exchange rate is over 10 Mexican pesos per US dollar so considering the exchange, the prices actually aren't too bad. Check out the exchange here: Exchange Rate of the Mexican Peso vs. All Currencies - CorporateInformation.com

Agreed, I didn't think the prices were bad either, I mean Veuve here is like $45-$50 anywhere you go. They can up it a bit, but it's not terrible. Now the resorts...that's another story!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
