Wal-Mart in Cancun

What is the Wal-Mart like in Cancun. Is it similar to the stores in US & Canada? How about prices? Do they have a good selection of items? I'm wondering if I should under pack and then pick up items while I'm in town.

The Cancun WalMart is about as close to a WalMart Supercenter as you can get. Believe me, if you forget it you can always pick it up at WalMart. Prices are comparable to U.S. prices.

One of the public buses that runs along the strip will take you there. I do not remember which one but it should say it in the front of the bus. Remember to ask the driver to let you know when you get there.

if at all possible do not go to the Wal-Mart on Sunday. Sunday is the one day a week most locals have off and it is a mad house.

We were there and every one of the 25 or so check out lines had 10 people in it

Do they sell beer and hard alcohol at Wal-Mart in Mexico? They do not in Minnesota where I live. We plan to make a beer run when we arrive, where is the best place to do this?

Can_Cancun,

Do yourself a favor, bring a rolling collapsible cooler. You can fill it up with all your goodies.

Yeah, WalMart kinda smells funny, like rotting meat and fish.
