How would you describe the availability and cost of groceries and household supplies relative to your home country?

For local produce (pineapples, papaya, watermelon, lettuce, carrots, bananas, coconuts) prices are very cheap. Meat is almost double the price of State-side pricing. Fish is very cheap (and tasty). Lobster, crab and shrimp are almost non-existent as they are shipped to the resorts first. Anything imported is quite expensive, such as canned goods, cheese (is insane), berries. - Apr 18, 2016
