Beach Chair -- Where to Buy?

Anyone know where you can pick up a comfortable, folding, full length beach chair in PDC? We would like to get one that is easy to toss in the back of the car and cart around. Not too expensive as we'll be leaving it behind. I don't think I have ever seen them for sale in town. Search of the forum turned up nada.

Thanks ....

we searched for full lengths when we were there, even in Cancun to no avail. We found folding regular ones, the kind that go in the bag, at Sam's Club for about $8 US, and they had ones at Chedraui that were basically the same but with a built in drink holder and footstool for $30 US.

Sam's club has the ones that don't fold for about $40, I think. If you buy one of those, I'll take it off your hands when you're finished with it!

Dig a hole for your butt, creating a back/head rest, smooth out the front so your knees aren't in your face, line with a towel. That's a portable beach chair.
