Beer on Isla Mujeres

OK, I know this is a rediculous question, but I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what the "approximate" cost of a case of Beer is on Isla Mujeres at a local grocery store or liquor store?

My son in law and I were having fun guessing. Now for the response!

Thanks for letting me waste your time.

I wanna say it works out to about $1 a beer, but at any rate it will be cheaper than in Fort Wayne. And far cheaper than Grand Cayman, where a case of Heineken set me back $52 at the cheapest liquor store on the island.

Depends on what kind of beer it is. If i remember correctly a case of Modelo Negros cost me about 20.00 bucks at the Chedraui

Nope, we loved Cayman, and the diving was FANTASTIC (Michele's favorite) but the cost of food and beverage there is outrageous. Even buying groceries. We went to a sports bar in Georgetown and spent over $100 at lunch. And that's with only 2 drinks each. So, do we love Mexico? You betcha.

And ylomello, Negra Modelo is my beer of choice. I drink it at home as well.

It really depends on what kind of beer. Hey I buy Bud for $16 a case here in Indy and can get Modelo Negra for $22 a case at a local store. I find beer is no cheaper on Isla than what I get here in Indy. Now.. rum, tequila, certain vodka I can get a whole lot cheaper.

The beer prices just went up recently. I want to say a case of Sol is around $260 pesos that does not include the deposit for the bottles.

I do want to report for those that don't do MX beer - Sol por favor for me!

I saw regular old Miller Lite in the 7-11 this week in Isla.

Sort of did a double take - my how the times they are a changing :-)

Yay! I will be looking for Budweiser for my husband when we get down there in a couple weeks. I will check out the beer aisle at the 7-11 when we get off the ferry so I don't have to waste too much time getting him set up for the week!

I saw budweiser being sold at the little beer store on Guerrero across from the market. This pic with prices at that store was taken mid December.
