Grand Solmar members and guests truly enjoy the fact that their accommodations always include a fully equipped kitchen. Especially since the COVID-19 pandemic, many visitors to the Los Cabos area are taking advantage of preparing and eating their meals in their suites. Families with children also find this an excellent option for saving money or catering to young picky eaters.
Regardless of which Grand Solmar Vacation Club resort your vacation is, one of the most significant benefits enjoyed by both members and their guests is the fully equipped kitchens within their suites. The kitchens are large with all the appliances you are used to and fully stocked with pots, pans, utensils, and dishes, so you have everything needed to prepare a great meal within your suite.
Grand Solmar Vacation Club members order ahead and use a delivery service
There are grocery delivery services available in the Los Cabos area that will deliver groceries directly to your suite to make your stay a little less stressful. Many Grand Solmar Vacation Club members choose to order the most basic staples delivered before their arrival, so the regular items you know you will want, such as coffee, bread, fruits, and snack items, will be waiting for you in your suite.
The other option is to stock up on supplies yourself once you arrive. Going grocery shopping in Los Cabos may take a little planning, mainly if you choose not to rent a car, but it can definitely be a fun adventure. The question most members and guests ask is, where is the best place to go?
Cabo San Lucas has grown tremendously over the past decade, and long gone are the days of having only one or two grocery stores to choose from. Now, there are many options available, some close by, others a quick drive away. So, where should you go to stock up on groceries and other supplies? Well, the best answer depends on where you are staying and what you are looking to buy.
If you are looking for familiarity, many options are now available to shop at the same stores you frequent at home, such as Costco and Wal-Mart. These large box stores are located on the corridor close to Cabo and carry many of the same products as a store in the US or Canada. Both stores allow you to stock up on everything you will need for your vacation; however, many Grand Solmar members have mentioned that they prefer Wal-Mart’s relatively large bakery section with authentic Mexican pastries.
Both of the above options are not considered walkable from the resort, especially when returning with bags of groceries, so you would need to plan for a taxi, Uber, or rental car. Other options on the Northern part of town are also a little closer for those visiting Grand Solmar and much closer for those staying at Rancho San Lucas. These options to the north part of town include Chedraui, La Comer, Soriana, and La Ley Express.
La Comer has the most organic produce, imported items, and the largest bakery out of all the options in this part of town. Soriana is the largest store by far, and many household items are much cheaper here as they have their own in-house brand of products, so this store is top-rated by locals. Chedraui is also an option similar to La Comer. Located in San Jose del Cabo, Chedraui Selecto is a much larger option and has many gourmet foods available and more imported products. The locals consider it a higher-end supermarket, and it is one of the most expensive places to shop in town. La Comer also has their higher-end version called La Comer Fresko, offering fresh produce and products.
If you stay at Rancho San Lucas and forgot tortillas, milk, eggs, or chips, La Ley Express is the closest option located just a few minutes up the highway. A full supermarket at Ley is available for shopping; however, the vegetables, dairy section, and butcher counter are somewhat limited. It does offer almost all of the basic requirements as well as a pharmacy.
Enjoy your time in Los Cabos and making stocking up a fun part of your trip, and enjoy some fantastic meals or simple snacks in your suites in paradise!
