There are 3 supermarkets in the area and they all sell alcohol: Plaza Pacifica in Dominical is 15 minutes north. It's a smaller supermarket with a limited  selection of produce and meat. There are two BM Supermarket in Uvita 15 minutes south. They are bigger and has a better selection of meat and produce.  


Cooking Services

Hiring a chef can be quite expensive in the rainforest. We know a local lady that cooks local Tico meals. She only speaks Spanish. We can put you in touch with her if renting at Villa Chill. It is best to book her services quickly as she maintains a busy schedule. [...]


Fish Stand

There is a little fish stand in Dominicalito, located in the parking lot of La Macha restaurant, right across from the La Parcela restaurant’s entrance.


Farmer’s Market

We love to go to the farmer’s market in Uvita on Saturday mornings. The market is open from 8am to 11am and you need to get there early to get the best selection. You will also find homemade bread & cakes baked by French Canadian expats.


Fruits Vendor

The very south end of Playa Dominical is where we normally take our surf lessons as the waves are just perfect for that. This fruit vendor is there every day except on Thursday and he has a great selection of produces that you won't find in the supermarkets and his prices are reasonable.
