I could really use some help from someone who lives (at least part time) in PlayaCar. A group of us (12 people) are renting a Villa and we were interested in hiring a Chef to do some cooking for us. However, prices are coming back to be about $60 per meal (2 chefs required for 12 people).

How accessible and 'trust-worthy' are grocery stores around there? Is it easy to get good, healthy food that can be cooked at the villa?

I'm sure James & Anna can give you up-to-date shopping information, but I can say that the big grocery store in Playa is the equal to most I shop in in Canada or Europe, and is easy to walk to-- near the centre of town -- and has a huge parking lot for those who drive. All the usual services!

We can even buy sushi ingredients, asian specialties, italian goods, US products, imported cheeses and meats, great domestic stuff...

I was complaining last night because the grocery store was out of Cheetos, but normally things are pretty well stocked.

You will have no problems.

Thanks for the info - sounds promising.

Sorry they were out of Cheetos, but glad to hear you are buying them. I work for Frito-Lay in the U.S., so keep eating Cheetos.
