The Mega Store or Walmart are within a few blocks of each other. MEGA is preferred by the locals - my preference too... Both about half way between the main highway and 5th avenue.

Both similar in size and I was told by the locals that the produce is better at MEGA

Mega is 30th Ave and Constituyentes

Walmart 30th Ave and Calle 8 ish

¨Yes. Not Sunday AM though.¨

Make that Sunday PM. Another vote for Mega. In my opinion, no comparison to Walmart.

Another vote for Mega. We always went to Walmart for small things over the years, but we were always at an all inclusive. This past May we stayed in a condo and stocked up at Mega. IMO, Mega has competitive prices with Walmart but the store itself is much cleaner. We bought meats, cold cuts and cheese for lunch, bacon and eggs and of course plenty of snacks. If you go, make sure you visit their fresh bakery section, the best! We also bought wine and vodka there.

Make sure to check out the bakery at MEGA. We always buy some bakery items on each trip.
