Grocery, Pharmacy and Liquor Stores
Expatriates are able to find just about everything they had back home at one or another of three supermarkets in the Ajijic, Lake Chapala area.
Superlake in San Antonio Tlayacapan is probably the most popular with Expats, but many also use El Torito in Ajijic and Soriana’s in Chapala.
Soriana is the Mexican version of Walmart. Located just off the main street in Chapala, it offers plenty of parking, as well as excellent quality produce, fresh baked goods, and just about everything one can find at Walmart, often with better prices than some of the other markets.
There are numerous specialty markets … butcher shops, fruits and vegetables, poultry, fish and flowers.
Outdoor markets (tianguis) are colorful, have a wide range of products, and can offer good prices. There is a weekly tianguis in Ajijic, Chapala and Jocotepec.
Most prescription drugs are available over-the-counter here in Mexico (no prescription necessary), with the exception of narcotics.
There are several discount pharmacies in the area, which offer substantial savings as compared to prices in other parts of the world.
I can suggest some great Tequilas for you.
