“Gringo” One-Stop Shop
There are many options to grocery shop in both San Jose Del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. One of the quickest ways to pick up supplies is to go to Soreana’s located three miles south of the Airport on the main hwy. going towards San Jose as you exit the airport. Truly one stop store. Easy access and return to the hwy going north to Cabo Pulmo. Both stores take $USD and credit cards.
Buy ice for a cooler/cardboard box* to transport perishables. The water in Cabo Pulmo is safe to drink! Beer, wine and booze can be purchased at the gringo markets, by stopping at any of the Corona, Pacifico or Tecate corner stores.
For those on a “short stay” there’s a great little market just outside of La Ribera – but NOT in Cabo Pulmo. The market outside of La Ribera, called El Rey, is about 1 km past the right turn towards Cabo Pulmo. This store has lots of last-minute items, fresh tortillas, snacks and cold beer. There is also a Pemex station across from the market now.
*You don’t need a cooler when you can make a “baja cooler” – just get a cardboard box and get a bag of ice, then you’ll have “party drink” ice when you get to the house. This will keep anything you need cold for the 1.5 hour drive.
There are currently ATMs in the following locations: Los Cabos International Airport, the Market or the Bank at Los Barriles.
*Banks will no longer exchange Dollars to Mexican Pesos.
