We heard rumor of a Wal-Mart in Playa Del Carmen, on the way, and decided we needed to make a stop. We arrived in Playa and drove around for about 30 minutes until we finally found the Wal-Mart. Once inside, I could not believe the prices! They were outrageously expensive for some things, and pretty normal for others! Example: A sundress was $35.00, and a can of soda was 55 cents. Anyways, we headed for the baby section and bought a manual breast pump for $20. After hand-expressing, a manual pump was sheer heaven.
By 5:30pm, made it to the Gran Bahia Principe, and checked-in. The resort was HUGE, but luckily our room was close to the center of the resort, which contained the buffet, pools, beaches, and bars.
(Having a much needed drink before dinner. Orange Fanta. Mmm.)
