Somewhere to get cheap beach toys (bucket/shovel) near Rio G

Any of you know of any dollar stores or somewhere to get beach toys for cheap near Rio Grande?

I don't want to bring them, (bag space) but don't want to risk not finding them there, for my daughter.. that's all she's talking about "shovelling sand"

JOY! Please let me know!

Someone told me @ Walmart which I believe to be about 20 minutes away. Would love to know if Ralph's or other bigger supermarkets closer to the Rio Mar would have them too!

You should have no problem finding someplace closeby that sells beach toys.

Are you renting a car? There is a Walmart you must pass by from your way from the airport to Rio Grande. It is on Route 3, very close to the Outlets Mall. It is a Walmart Supercenter, so in one stop you can get the bucket/shovel and at the same time stock up on groceries.

Also at "Pitusa" in Luquillo (side by side to Amigo Supermarket) , or at the dollar stores in Plaza Fajardo.

Wall Mart is the best place to go. You can get a boogie board that rents on the beach for $15/day for `$10. Ralf's doesn't have much but the Walgreens usually has small stuff. There is a Walgreens about every 3 miles on RT 3 between Rio Grande and Fajarvo.

We always found what we needed at Walgreens for a good price.

We had to replace a broken boogie board. When I checked @ WalMart last week they were $35. Ended up buying a better one @ Costco for $27.
