      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

        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.

            Thank you so much! I am SHOCKED by how expensive the champagne is...those prices are almost double what it is here. Guess we will just be doing a champagne toast!

            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!

                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!

                    Thank you so much for all the pricing information! That is great and I was wondering about the liquor and champagne.
