For backpackers and people with tight budgets, this is the option. Automercado's prices are less expensive than average, and you could find anything you want: fresh vegetables, fruits, meats, milky products, seafood, wine, and all the stuff you find in a supermarket.
I went to the Automercado at Multiplaza Mall, but you can find AutoMercados at:
- Plaza del Sol (in Plaza del Sol Mall)
- Los Yoses (next to Mall San Pedro)
- Centro (around Parque Morazán)
- Plaza Mayor (in Plaza Mayor Mall)
- Multiplaza (Multiplaza Mall)
- Tibas-Moravia (400 m. west Colegio Lincoln)
- Heredia (north of police station, autoroute to Barva)

Favorite Dish: What you cannot miss here is buying coffee. My favorite coffee-related product was Britt's grains of coffee covered by chocolate. It was delicious, but please don't eat them at night, because your tireness may be gone :-)
