Average costs of items in Samara

Trying to figure out costs for doing our own groceries in Samara. Can someone give an idea of costs for the following items?

1L bottle of water

dozen eggs

6 apples

green peppers

chicken breast

6 pack beer

Also, are mosquito nets a key item at night?

Thanks!

JM

Prices will be about same as at home. Beer is about one dollar each.

Agree. Most things only slightly higher than in the US. Some exceptions are imported things. Small bottles of tonic water were $1.50, more expensive than gasoline. Some things are less. There's a guy who sells fresh shrimp from a stand across from the Pali, I think only about $8/lb for U20.

Will we be able to purchase diapers and baby food in Samara, or do we need to go to the next town over?

It will save you money to buy on your way in in Nicoya, but yes you can find it in Samara.

Nicoya has a big store called MaxBodega and if you have a car, definitely worth passing by and getting supplies. But for the most part, you can get a grat variety of products here. I agree with Cubanon, prices are about the same as in the US. There is a store called Pali where you can find the cheapest items but they only have basic things. Super Samara has more varieties but the most expensive place in town. Have a great time!
