Mega

As one of Mexico’s major supermarkets, Mega is sure not to disappoint. As expected with this type of large supermarket in Mexico, it carries clothes, shoes, beach supplies, appliances, electronics and more, along with all the standard food, wine, baby, personal care and cleaning items that are normally found in a supermarket. Mega also has a particularly nice fruit and vegetable section, as well as a decent wine section.

DAC

For the freshest fruits and vegetables in town as well as the best variety, you really have to come to DAC. Although it appears small, there are a ton of items available, and since many of the local restaurants order from here, a good portion of what they have is not out on display. Simply ask one of the workers and they will gladly bring it out from the back, for example gorgeous basil and Brussels sprouts, along with a bunch of other items you can’t find anywhere else in town. There is a great Asian section complete with all types of curry pastes and ingredients, as well as a full section of spices in bulk jars, an organic products section and some wonderful local bakery items. There are always flowers for sale out front and on holidays like Christmas, etc. they sell seasonal flora. There is a cafe attached that sells great food for very reasonable prices, and all types of smoothies and juices are offered there as well. It’s a tight store, but grab a basket on the way in and you won’t come out empty handed.

Soriana at Centro Maya

Soriana is another Mexican giant supermarket that offers all the predictable items. We aren’t as fond of the fruit and veggie section, but the store is well stocked otherwise. Out of the local large supermarkets, we prefer Soriana’s wine selection as it is quite extensive and well priced. They also have a really good selection of beers; sometimes even carrying a variety of smaller European brands.

Walmart

Walmart, as you might expect, is very well stocked, enormous and offers a full selection of appliances, clothing, shoes, electronics and so on, pretty much exactly as you would expect to find in one of the other large supermarkets. There are two locations in Playa del Carmen, including one in the town proper and another newer one off the Arco Vial, both similarly stocked. The fruit and veg sections are good, offering plenty of options, and they tend to carry a few more “specialty American” items than some of the other Mexican supermarkets. One example that may surprise you is chocolate chips… It’s amazing, but chocolate chip cookies are so NOT a thing here! At Christmas, along with offering Christmas trees (which always sell out fast), Walmart has a huge selection of other Christmas supplies (which also sell out fast, so get your lights early!), and they usually expand the toy section to at least double its normal size.

Sam’s Club

Sam’s Club is a retail warehouse club like Costco (so you will need a membership) that is owned by Walmart and prevalent here in Mexico. Everything is sold in larger packages or bulk and the prices are lower than elsewhere because you have to buy bigger quantities. It’s a great place to buy TV’s or other large electronic purchases, as well as mattresses, and Sam’s Club always has a great wine section with good prices, as well as a smaller fruit and vegetable selection, but whatever they do have in stock is always of really high quality. Sam’s generally offers a selection of fun pool and beach toys (think: huge inflatable islands, snorkel gear, ice chests, etc.) and they always have outdoor furniture for sale as well. Each year close to Christmastime Sam’s Club is also one of the very few places in Playa del Carmen that sells Christmas trees, but they only get a couple of shipments so you have to act fast when they arrive.

City Club

City Club is another retail warehouse club (so you need to have membership) that is very similar to Sam’s Club and Costco. They have a bit less selection available than Sam’s, but are a good store nevertheless. They have a nice wine section and a small but decent fruit and veggie section. They also have a good electronics selection if you happen to be in the market for a new big screen TV. During Christmas, City Club also sells Christmas trees, but they always sell out quickly.

Bio Natural

Since opening just a few years ago, Bio Natural has quickly become a big favorite among the increasingly health conscious population of Playa del Carmen. Their store, which also has an amazing vegetarian restaurant, is chock full of all types of healthy and organic products for sale, including natural snacks, organic small production nut butters, a selection of Ezekiel breads and tortillas, a large number of hemp seed products, vegan protein powders, a wide variety of alternate flours (coconut, almond meal, garbanzo, buckwheat, etc.), organic coconut sugar and coconut oil. There are also some harder to find items for vegans who like to cook, including nutritional yeast, liquid aminos and much, much more. Bio Natural is a definite “must” on the shopping list for anyone who tries to eat healthy, and you should definitely try their restaurant, too!

Organik Boutique

This health food store is located inside Playacar Phase II (don’t worry, you can get in, just give them your ID at the gate for a temporary placard) and has a nice selection of organic and healthy products. The offerings are very similar to Bio Natural, but with less selection overall and the addition of many different organic meats and cheeses. They also carry some eco-friendly home care products (think: clothes detergent, toothpaste and cleaning products), along with a fun selection of organic breakfast cereals, bars and snacks for the kids. The owner is really friendly and usually has one of her dogs in tow, just in case you want a cute face to pet.

GNC

There are three locations of this US chain in Playa del Carmen now, and they are the place to go for all of your vitamin and supplement needs. GNC offers a large selection of all types of specialty vitamins, minerals and herbal supplements, as well as a nice selection of different protein powders and sports nutrition products, so if this is what you’re looking for, this is pretty much the only place to get it in town.
