Super Joseth

Hi,

What does Super Joseth market have? Is it a basic supermarket? Can we get baby diapers and food to stock that fridge here?

We are staying in manuel antonio.

SuperJoseth has really grown in the past few years. Though not as large as many of our supermarkets, it has a relatively good selection. You will be able to find all sorts of food and drinks - liquor and non alcohol to stock your fridge.

I haven't personally shopped for diapers, but I would bet you you will be able to find them there.

And if for some reason they don't have diapers, you can go into Quepos where both Pali and Supermas will have them.

Pura Vida,

raquel

Yes, the Super Joseth is on the way to Tulemar from SJ. In fact, it's just roughly 3 blocks before Tulemar - a very easy walk, just up and around the corner.

It is about 7 km less than 4.5 miles from the far end of MA near the park to thhe town of Quepos.

Places like Tulemar and Super Joseth are about midway up the road so less than 3 miles..

Coming from San Jose, you will pass through Quepos before you get to the MA road.

The prices at the Quepos stores will be less than at Super Joseth - but sometimes it is worth paying more for convenience.

Pura Vida,

Super Joseth is 7minute walk from Tulemar.

Unless you want a specific North American item such as a specialty cheese etc they will have everything you need.

If you are looking for a specialty item, you can find it at Super Mas downtown Quepos a 10minute cab ride from Tulemar.

You can buy diapers there as well as diaper cream, wipes, Gerber, baby powder. They have one of the best stocked wine/liquor stores in the area - even better than some of the liquor stores in Quepos because they are used to traveler's buying from them. Their prices are very similar to Super Mas in Quepos - not worth the 50cent savings to go all the way to Quepos. Pali is the Walmart of Costa Rica so their prices cant really be compared to the other super markets in town. Yes, some things are cheaper however they don't have a lot of variety.
