Supermarkets

We will be staying at the Melia in the Marina Vallarta area. We will not be doing all inclusive so we'll need to go to a supermarket. Are there markets within walking distance? We would take a taxi back since we'll have a lot of bags of groceries. Please advise...

there is a WALMART in front of those cruise ships when they are in port

it is a long walk and with the Humidity and strong sun whew

take a local bus and you can get off at the intersection of walmart

then cab it back with your goodies

also SORIANA that is just a little further down the hwy

tuesday is their discount discount day on fruit and vegetables for both stores

The "Comercial Mexicana"Plaza Marina is in walking distance. Good for drinks and groceries.

Enjoy your stay !

theres a super market at north end of marina vallarta, we walk from velas and take a cab back often in our 2 weeks

we walk up to starbucks get our am coffee and then turn left and walk up to the store, a lot closer than walmart, cabs from melia or velas to this store cost 3-4 dollars, never have paid more than this

I think we will go to Comercial Mexicana even though I like Soriano. We'll probably stock up on many items the first week when we shop at MEGA (Nuevo) but will need more items the second week. Which direction is Comercial from the Melia at the Marina?

Wrong again Michael (chico s) Plaza Marina is south of the Marina entrance. Maybe buy a compass ?
