Okay I was honestly shocked how many of you responded when I posted this so I figured why the hell not? This deserves a post ALL on its own. We are going to be chatting about drugs and other things at the pharmacies in Cabo you need to buy ASAP.

Here is what I normally buy:

♡ 2.5 Cortozone cream:

“This medication is used to treat a variety of skin conditions (e.g., insect bites, poison oak/ivy, eczema, dermatitis, allergies, rash, itching of the outer female genitals, anal itching). Hydrocortisone reduces the swelling, itching, and redness that can occur in these types of conditions.” Stolen from WEBMD, the place that normally tells me I am pregnant or have cancer. All the funnies aside, I use this for razer burn or any rash. This is normally super expensive and you need a prescription in the US.

♡ Differin Gel:

Oh the acne helpful helper. Differin treats the redness and inflammation associated with acne and helps prevent pimples, blackheads, and clogged pores before they occur. In order to get the best results, spread a thin layer over your face. They say you need to use it daily, which is essentially suicide for your face. DO NOT START EVERYDAY. I would recommend using it every other day until your face becomes accustomed to it.

♡ Latisse:

A prescription for Latisse, which is only obtainable through a doctor, costs about four dollars per day, which makes me nauseous. That is a cup of coffee worth on the lashes. LIKE NO. Prices vary regionally, but the average cost of a 30-day supply is between $120 and $140. In Mexico I can get a bottle for MAX $40 - that makes my wallet and heart a whole lot happier.

♡ Z- pack for sickness:

The Z pack is a 5-day antibiotic treatment that does not work on the common cold. Viral infections cause the common cold, but the Z pack only works on bacterial infections. ... Prevention may be the best tool against the common cold.

Could some of these drugs be a little sketch if you don't buy them at the right place? 100%. So go in knowing there is always risk. Knock on wood… we have been fine! I am not buying any diet pills down there or Viagra. LOL Those are the types of things that you can buy but some of the ingredients are illegal in the U.S. We go to the same pharmacy every trip (almost), we feel like they have fair pricing and also a convenient location - the same street as Eidths and The Office on the beach (same owner). It is kitty-corner to La Esquina.


Not sold at the pharmacy, but another thing to think about buying is vanilla extract. Seems crazy, BUT it is so much better quality in Cabo and comes in a huge container. At home in the US we can buy a bottle of Vanilla Extract for about $40 for the smallest size. In Mexico they have HUGE bottles for an average of $5-$10 dollars.
