Keep in mind some items at the duty free are cheaper by going to a supermercado.

Hi BarrieBrian... true, but we won't be driving while there... we are staying at the Riu Palace Macao... Is there a supermercado near by?

Perhaps there's one on the way to the airport, that your taxi can stop at. Otherwise, you'll waste the difference or possibly more on a cab ride to get it, unless it's within walking distance. Even then, unless it's close, you'll be wasting vacation time. Shopping at the duty free in the airport is a good way of killing time while you wait for your plane.

The super Pola at Plaza San Juan has good price for the rhum . The prices are cheaper than the duty free.

Last year at the super Pola , i bought rhum for :$14 .

The same bottle at the duty free : $22

Same thing for the coffee. At the super Pola : $4

At the duty free:$10 for the coffee .

Some hôtels have transportation for the Plaza San Juan , ask the front desk of your hôtel .

Remember though. If you buy any liquids outside of the airport, you'll need to package them in your checked luggage before you reach the airport.

There are 2 nice duty frees in the departures terminal in Punta Cana airport.

Yes, all Liquids must be in your checked luggage.

Worth the savings to take a can to a super mercado.

There are plenty in the area outside the Riu complex.

What's the savings vs the extra luggage/extra weight charges for putting those supermarket purchases in your checked luggage? Just something to consider.

Do you know if they have Brugal Gran Reserva at the duty free ?

And what would be the price ?

At the SAQ and LCBO it $ 70 for 750 ml.
