Planning a trip there in Feb. What is the best way to get groceries? Do you bring some stuff with you from home? If so, what? Or is it best to buy everything when you get there? What about beer/liquor?
Hi, and thanks for your question! There are several provisioning services available, that you can pre-order before your arrival and have the good already stocked in your suite prior to arrival. Please contact us directly via our website for more information. San Pedro Town is 3 miles south of us on the paved road, it is easy to rent a golf cart for a drive to town for exploring and shopping. Note that there is a toll bridge just north of town that all traffic must pay both ways. We look forward to hosting you in February!
We had contacted a local store (via their website) We bought beer, wine, bread, lunch meat and cheese and they delivered it. When we arrived at the resort the beer and perishables were in the refrigerator waiting for us. All very easy
Make sure you hit the duty free in an airport for your liquor needs prior to arriving in Belize. Much cheaper there than anywhere on the island. Have a great time! Make sure to rent a cart and take a trip up to the secret beach. it's beautiful
You can contact Belizean Shores, there was a delivery service that allowed you to make a "grocery list" and your order would be there when you arrive. Another alternative is to rent a golf cart and go into town to the store.
I recommend the best way to get groceries is just wait until You are there. No need to bring anything with You unless You know You want/need something that You know they might not have it there.
I visited in 2015 and again in 2017, both times I waited till I got there. Yeah the resort has a service available and they probably do good. But if You are like me, no one can shop for my groceries better than myself, Lol. Also, it'll be an adventure just going out to the grocery stores on the island, go into 2 or 3 and decide from which one You want to make your purchases. They have beer, they have liquor, and they have all that You will need for food. Just keep in mind that it won't be like your grocery store You are use to, like the quality of produce is not the best given the fact that everything is imported into the island. But in my experiences it was not bad at all given You are there for a week or so.
NOW this is very important, BUY ALL YOUR LIQUOR AT THE AIRPORT! Each person is allowed about 5 liters, so I went in and purchased my 5 bottles, then my girlfriend went in and purchased her 5 bottles, we were super covered for THE remainder of our trip! and the liquor is much cheaper and they have better options AT THE AIRPORT. I promise You, You will pay more and have less options if You do not buy your liquor at the airport. I recommend the Belizian Rum BTW not the 1-barrel rum, the Belizian rum is only $12US for 1 liter and it is smooth, tastes so good that you can have it on the rocks if You want.
Have fun in Belize, You're gonna love it!
