    How far south? A new store named "Off The Vine" fine wines and spirits has just opened in Playa del Carmen, on Ave. 1 between 26&28 streets. They deliver orders over $110 pesos, and I think you qualify.
    That is a fantastic quantity of wine for a party. I notice this is your first post. What type of party, and where?

      La Europa, across from Walmart has a great selection of wines among other gourmet imports.

        I visited Óff the Vine in Playa yesterday, that I mentioned in a post above. Small, very limited selection, and the sales girl was much more interested in chatting with her girlfriend. Gong.

          So do you then recommend Europa or even Walmart for wine in Playa?

            I still recommend bringing your own favorites. If you get caught short, Sam's Club is your best bet for wine in Playa. I know how strange that sounds, but I call 'em as I see 'em.
