FRUIT & VEGGIES
Fruit & Veggies
Located throughout the Island are several fruit and vegetable stands! They sell fresh produce every day. Explore new fruits that you haven’t tried yet!
There’s nothing like a fresh squeezed juice drink! Around the Island are juice shops. Orange, pineapple, jamaica, or mango are just some of the delicious flavors you can try. Some of the juice shops even sell ice cream!
When In Mexico… Fresh Tortillas!
If you want to eat like a local, you need to buy freshly pressed tortillas! No, not from a store, from a tortilla shop (tortilleria)! Every morning while everyone is still sleeping, employees begin to hand make the dough for fresh tortillas in time for breakfast. They do this all day until just before dinner time. Hot fresh tortillas are the only way to eat here! Downtown at the market, near Tonicho’s, around the corner from the tennis courts, and the La Gloria Market.
Throughout the island there are many convenient stores. You can find snacks, basic cooking items, water, drinks, cleaning products, and other items. (Also fresh tortillas from the tortillerias!) Some are privately owned, others are chain stores called SIX, OXXO, and 7-Eleven.
All over the island are pharmacies. If you don’t feel well, are thirsty, need baby items, or need to fill a prescription, pharmacies are the place to go! There are pharmacies all throughout downtown, by Chedraui, in La Gloria, and Ampliacion de la Gloria.
