Is There a Grocery Store near the Puntarenas Port?

There are no grocery shops nearby the port, so you will need to head to the main center of the city. You can easily flag down one of the cabs parked nearby the port strip and ask to head to the "centro." While U.S. dollars are accepted, it is a good idea to carry local currency, because grocery stores accept dollars at a discounted exchange rate. If you're looking only for snacks or a quick bite, you can try heading to the nearby Paseo de Los Turistas. For more information, read our feature article Puntarenas Port Guide on
