The new Walmart in Mezcales would be closer to Paradise Village. They are both pretty similar in selection and prices.

The supermarket at Paradise mall is much better and cheaper than it used to be, you may find what you want there, unless you are looking for fresh seafood or meat.

I think the steaks at Wall mart are better than Mega and it also has more "American" products if that is what you want.

Aside from that, they are very similar, Mega seems to cater more to the locals and you can find more Mexican specialties.

Last October we were unable to find Crowne Royale at the new Walmart. Do they sell it at the Mega store?

Have never seen Crown Royal anywhere. In general Rye or Whiskey is hard to find. We usually buy it at the duty free to bring down if we really need it.

We purchased Crown Royal at the new Wal-mart in Mezacales on January 16, 2010. A small bottle (I'm pretty sure 750 ml) was approx 300 pesos. The duty free shop at the airport on the way out of town sold it 2 for $34 american (1 liter).

Crown Royal also at the Costco. Wasn't at the Walmart or the Mega when we were there in late Dec.

Crown Royal CORRECTION! My bad memory! We looked at Costco, but actually FOUND Crown Royal at the Sunset Market in the Paradise Village Mall. Our guess was that the owners are Canadian and probably got it in response to tourist requests. Sorry - didn't want to send anyone on a wild goose chase!
