Best place for groceries and produce?

We're be arriving on Monday for 3 weeks (yay!) and I was just wondering where we should do our grocery shopping. We eat a lot of fruit, veggies, and salads, so lots of fresh produce is a must! Is Mega the place for that? What about Costco? Is it worthwhile going there? Will we find any organic produce anywhere?

We also own at Playa Royale. Look at the organicselect website. We have been having orders delivered here for the past 2 years and are so pleased to find organic, fresh items....yogurt, hummus, breads, produce.

You can pay via paypal or cash on delivery.

As for groceries, I prefer Chedraui...

Chedraui is the closest, then Walmart.

There's a small organic store called El 8 Bottega Oganic near the overpass, near Chedraui. I've never been there, but I've seen it.They are on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/#!/El8BottegaOrganic?fref=ts

Che-drow-y, with the accent on "drow" ("drow" as in "drown").

It's located at the second highway entrance into the Nuevo area (see map at following link):

Only 5 minutes from Playa Royale by taxi.

I like the Chedraui - it's new, nice, has a wicked selection of dried chilis, and tourists are usually a lower percentage of it's clientele. Sometimes the produce selection is better at Walmart, though, which is just another minute or so by taxi.

We prefer Mega for the produce selection.

Also, Sam's Club is now open right across the highway from Chedraui.
