If you’re staying in one of the many condos in Luquillo, you likely have a kitchen and therefore you will probably want to buy some groceries. If nothing else, it will save a little money from going out to eat for every meal.
We have an Amigo Grocery store in Luquillo. It is a smaller store but it has everything you may need, from bakery with fresh bread to produce and frozen sections. There is also a meat department and if you buy something large, like a ham for example, you can ask someone at the meat window to slice it for you.
You can find Amigo behind McDonalds and Walgreens – simply turn right (coming from San Juan) at the main light in Luquillo on PR-3, and then a quick left and you will see Amigo on the right, right past the school (don’t follow Google maps, they are off, it’s actually on the right side of the street as marked with the star below).
Here are store details:
Amigo de Luquillo

Many North American brands are sold at Amigo and you can pretty much find all of the basics but if you are in need of some specialty items or simply want more options, you can take a quick drive to Fajardo (about 4 miles away), where you will find Econo Supermarket and Ralph’s Food Warehouse stores – both stores are large grocery supermarkets. Ralph’s has many specialty items that you won’t find anywhere else locally, as well as a large warehouse bulk section. Econo tends to have a nice selection of produce and meats at relatively low prices.
