Groceries near Marina

Hello,

We are chartering a sailboat in April from the Moorings in Placencia. I would prefer to get our own groceries and supplies for the trip rather than have Moorings stock the boat (it is expensive and not great if they do it). Can anyone tell me if there is a grocery near the Moorings, and if it's feasible to walk or cab to it to get a week's worth of groceries for 4 people?

Thanks in advance!

Nothing nearby, but a number of grocery stores in Placencia proper. A short taxi ride, but a longish walk. Very feasible to provision via cab, but get a van at least for the return trip with provisions.

De nada.

I used to live in Placencia and worked as a charter captain for many years in Belize, happy to answer any other related questions you may have.

One more - are the grocery stores open on Sunday morning? I've been reading about a lot of places in BZ being totally shut down on Sundays... Thanks!

Also TA is not the best forum for sailing related info. Try www.cruisersforum.com instead. Several Belize related threads there already.

All stores open on Sunday and the vege stands is where you want to buy the fresh produce. Taxis, always avaiable, but also, you could rent a golf cart, for a day.
