Default Mexican Vanilla

Where is the best place to buy vanilla? I will be in Cozumel and Calica/Playa Del Carmen in June. I have purchased Vanilla in Mexico a few years ago when I went in through Texas. It was about 3 dollars for a big bottle. What is the cost now and do they have a limit on how much you can bring back? Thanks!

Yes, it's available everywhere, I bought mine at the pier, and it's very cheap. Don't remember exactly how much I paid. Because it's not alcohol, there is no limit to how much you can bring back (as long as you don't exceed your general purchases customs allowance.)

Cheers,

Is this the white vanilla? My mom wants some of that for baking. A friend of hers went to Mexico but could only find the brown vanilla although it was the 'real' kind.

i just bought a huge botte of it for $6 on the pier. i checked around on the pier only & that seems to be the cheapest. for this size bottle it ranged from $6 - $9. i am sure you can get it cheaper away from the pier.

I haven't seen any type of vanilla in the shops in Cozumel that was not brown.

I always buy my vanilla in Mex. as it is the best. Have never seen white vanilla! Just made chocolate chip cookies and the vanilla really brings out the flavor!
