I want to stock up on stuff before I head down to Tulum for a week. I hear there is a Walmart somewhere in Tulum. Can you tell me where it is, or some other supermarket. Just need a weeks worth of bottled water, cokes, and beer, and snacks.
Leaving tomorrow )6/20)

No big shops in Tulum, but you can certainly get all your daily needs in Tulum and avoid having to go to 'cun. If you do go, take your Sam's and Costco cards cuz they're there too.

If you plan to pull that off, just grab a bus from the terminal in the middle of Playa for about 36 pesos one way, take a taxi from the terminal to Sams for 11 pesos (I think) rinse and repeat.

I recommend a Tylenol PM for the ride to help mute the sounds of the dubbed video tape of World's Most Dangerous Magic that they always seem to play when I ride.

What do you mean? I love those Dangerous Magic episodes. Houdini for the 21st century. Also enjoyed Monty Python's Toad's Wild Ride which they were playing on our recent trip back from CUN. My daughter was having a great time watching it but the Mayan gentlement next to her looked truly disgusted and just couldn't seem to fathom what this 16-year-old gringa saw in a bunch of men with ears and tails hopping around and singing. This is Carey, by the way, but I have no idea what my user name and password is as I'm on a recently reconfiged 'puter in Coz.
