Green Center and Automercado

I am traveling to CR Monday and driving to Quepos Tuesday. I want to grocery shop (VEGAN) Tuesday morning on my way out of town and have found Green Center and Automercado.

Is it easy to get to both of these places from Hampton Inn and Suites and then get on the road to Quepos?

Thank you

Here are the locations of Automercado in CR

https:/…showEmpresaLocalizaciones.do

There IS one in Santa Ana and it appears that The Green Center is also. However, once you get on the Autopista del Sol, you'll need to head back towards SJ to get to both of these vs. heading west to the beaches. Not saying it can't be done but for the purpose of simplicity, I would shop at the Automercado in Herradura which is on the cross street of the road to the Marriott Los Suenos and the costanera which you'll be driving on to get to Quepos. If you have a GPS, I'm sure you can go to both in Santa Ana but I've driven thru Santa Ana many times without a GPS and the traffic is really thick and it's easy to lose your bearings. However on the positive side both these stores, it appears, are just off the Autopista so like I said, it's doable. However, I wouldn't do it without very specific instructions.

Yes Lisa, I'm connected with her on social media and she seems to have a great connection for organic down that way.
