While Mexico’s inflation ended at 7.7 percent this year, the price of groceries in Los Cabos has increased 20 percent, according to the La Paz chapter of the National Chamber of Commerce. Restaurants in La Paz have increased their prices by 15 percent, said the president of the La Paz restaurants association. It’s time to get on a diet! In despite of the increase, Costco in Cabo has been packed to the rafters, with days when one can’t even find a parking spot. Happy New Year!
