Groceries/ Wine and Liquor Stores/Condado area

We are staying at Condado Aster in a condo. I am one of the rare travelers who like to cook in nights sometimes on holida and would like to know if there is a good grocery not too far away -- especially like gourmet items and fresh fish and produce. Anyone tell me what would be best option. Also is liquor/wine sold in groceries or other? Also are there produce stands in the countryside? Fresh fish markets?

Yes, liquor is sold just about everywhere. Even local stands set up on the side of the road. Beer and wine coolers can be found at even gas stations.

Here is the map.

If you in Condado take Ashford Ave. toward San Juan, at the end of Ashford which is the bridge take Baldorioty de Castro to Isla Verde as shown in the map. Stay on the right lane to take the service road (calle marginal, or marginal street), then right at Dos hermanos street. Click to zoom the map and follow the directions. Hope this help.

SuperMax, hands down! You may find fresh fruits & veggies at the Plaza del Mercado de Santurce ("La placita") but not all the things you may need. (Supermax is in front of the Doubletree hotel at Avenida De Diego) Taxi service & shopping cars are available all the time in case you buy too many heavy articles...)

If you are staying in condado Astor building, H&R Liquor store is 5 min walk. Is next to Cartier in the lobby of Bristol Building. It is a very complete liquor store and minimarket.
