Milk at Paradisus La Esmeralda

Hi - traveling to Paradisus La Esmeralda with our 19 month old son. He drinks whole cows milk here in US. Can anyone tell me what type of milk they serve at La Esmeralda? I emailed the resort and have not received a reply. From the pictures, it appears the milk is served in milk boxes (from when the family concierge delivers milk and cookies each nite). If they don't serve cows milk, is it available in a supermarket that we can take a taxi to?

Thanks for all of your help!

Cows milk is very widely available in the area but they treat it differently to how it's treated in the US and Canada. (I *think* it's sterlized as opposed to homogenized but I stand to be corrected on that). Whatever treatment it is they use to make the milk safe, the end result is that the milk in Mexico tastes slightly different.

The stuff in the boxes is definitely cows milk.
