Shopping in Nica

We are arriving in Managua and heading to SJDS the next day. Our party comprises 4 adults and 3 children. We are looking for advice as to where to buy supplies;i.e. diapers, shampoo, toiletry supplies. We'd rather buy there than carry on the plane. Is this a good idea? Where should we shop?

Yep, La Union or Pali. They are subsidiaries of Wal-Mart (which may be good or bad, depending on your view of Wal-Mart). La Union was in Managua, don't remember it in SJDS. La Union is as close to Wal-Mart without it actually being a Wal-Mart. Pali is a bit smaller of a store, but you should be able to buy your basics there too.

That said, you should be able to find more local stores for basics too, though not absolutely sure about diapers (sorry, no kids, not something I think about looking for...)
