Whatever you need while in Zihuatanejo, 
Alberto can help you.

755-55-77-153 (cell) 


Hi!  I am Linda and I am writing this blog because I 
 am Alberto's friend. 

Alberto is a family man.  Let me introduce you to his wife, Claudia and their very polite  kids, Alberto and Claudia.

Now that you know everyone, let me tell you about what Alberto can do for you.



Alberto’s   purpose is to provide you with any groceries you might need for your vacation-especially for those first few days.  Wouldn’t you like to arrive to a fridge stocked full of your favorite foods, drinks, and icy cold cervezas so you can enjoy your vacation time on the beach or at the pool?

Order must be finalized and payment must be received  at least 5 days prior to your arrival.  As well, you must provide the name of the person to see at your accommodation at the time of delivery in order to gain access to your unit.  Deliveries will be made on the day of your arrival.  No deliveries will be made on December 24 or 31.

The usual cost for this service is Alberto’s  fee of 300-500 pesos, depending on the size of your order,  plus the cost of your groceries and any bank or transfer charges.  Your change will be left in your unit with your groceries, along with an itemized list of groceries and prices.  If you are already in Zihua and want Alberto to do a regular grocery delivery (more groceries than what would be considered "start up"), just tell me your wish list and I will be happy to provide a quote of costs.

If you reside in Canada, funds can be etransfered  or deposited to a Canadian bank account, and pesos will be withdrawn here from that account.  If you reside in the US, Western Union or paypal  your options for payment. If you select paypal, payment must be made in Canadian funds since it will go to the same Canadian bank, then withdrawn here in pesos.  If you select Western Union, payment must be made in pesos.  If you are already here in Zihua, or if your accommodation is at Residencial Los Mangos, payment arrangements will be made on an individual basis.

For your information and reference to help you start your list, common items requested for start up groceries are:  coffee,  milk,  sugar,  apple juice, orange juice, bread (white or multi-grain),  margarine, butter, mayo, sliced turkey breast,  tomatos,  apples, pineapple,  grapefuit,  cerveza (sol, corona, victoria),  limes, coke,  diet coke,  joli, and microdyn (for disinfecting fruits & veggies), avocado, onion, totopos (chips), potato chips.

So please provide your arrival date and time, the name and location of your accommodation, the full name of the registered guest at your accommodation, and what groceries you would like purchased for you.  Once I have this information, I will quote you a rough price for the purchases and the total payment amount. Then you can decide if you would like to proceed.  Once your grocery list is finalized, and you choose your payment method, I will tell you the approximate delivery time, and you will need to provide the name of the person who will let Alberto into your accommodation on the day of your arrival.  At that time you can make your payment and I will notify you when it has been received.  The rest is pure vacation time!

Alberto's Services

Recommendation from Sallie:
I have known Alberto for several years and found him to be very straightforward and hard working. He would be an excellent choice as your condo manager.

Recommendation from Barbara:    

I have used Alberto's services many times over the past 4 years. He has also offered many suggestions to me that have made my move to here hassle free. When I was in need of some car repair Alberto arranged for a reliable mechanic and the problem was fixed within 24 hours. He is honest and more than willing to go beyond the extra mile to be of service to others. You will be very happy with all his knowledge and skills and most of all the peace of mind of having him just a phone call or e-mail away with an answer to your question or problem.     

Recommendation from Andrea:  
I have known Alberto for 3 years now. He is a wonderful and honorable man. I know a couple of people who have condos that he manages and from what I hear he takes excellent care of them. I am told by condo owners who use Alberto’s services that he is extremely well organized and keeps very complete records of all financial transactions. I would encourage anyone who can use these services to, at the very least, contact Alberto so that you can speak with him directly.
