Costco/Walmart/Mega store - which one is closest to...

Casa Dorada Medano beach? We plan on going to do a little shopping for drinks/snacks in the room. We will be taking a taxi to/from. Which is the closest and has the best prices on alcohol/beer/mixes? Here you need to be a member to shop at Costco. Is it the same there? What can we expect to pay for a taxi? Only 79 days to go!!!!

We always go to Walmart for supplies after checking in at Casa Dorada. It's about $8 each way for a cab and about a five minute ride. No need to pay a cab to wait. Just have them drop you off, do your shopping, and then pick up one of the waiting cabs outside to get back to your hotel. We prefer Walmart over Costco because at Walmart we can get smaller portions and don't waste stuff. We buy bottled water, beer, chips, sandwich meats, bread, condiments, chips, and other snack stuff in portions that are right for our needs. You can also get anything else you forgot to bring or need more of there. (It's Walmart after all.)

We also walk down to La Europa a couple of doors down from Walmart in the same shopping center for liquor, mixers and wine. La Europa is Cabo's biggest and best stocked liquor store and they have pretty much whatever you are looking for including some hard to find items. My wife, for example, likes diet tonic with her gin, and they have it there. They also have local tequilas to taste, and we found and bought our new favorite tequila there on our last visit. We have also found that prices on some wines and liquors are cheaper at La Europa than at Walmart.
