Carulla is very similar to a North American grocery store. You can purchase fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh and frozen meat, fresh bread and other kitchen necessities. They also sell simple prepared foods. There are 2 stores in the neighborhood of the house. One is located on Boyacá right around the corner from the house. The other is located down Calle 116 and is directly next to a large fresh fruit and vegetable store that offers huge variety at very low prices.
Both stores have ATMs. We recommend using the green ATM that offers larger pull-outs for North American debit cards. You can pull out $780.000 at a time using these machines.
