Sometimes we just can’t find exactly what we need locally and need to do a little online shopping! Many of the bigger chain stores have a website where you may order online and have shipped to your home. We also cover some of the package delivery points in the area.
First, let me start by saying we completely support our local community and retailers, but sometimes we need to do a little online shopping as well. We try to limit this, but sometimes we can’t get things locally and must resort to the internet.

Package Delivery Points Almuñécar (La Herradura)
When you are doing online shopping, one of the “gotchas” might be receiving your package. Sometimes your address isn’t on Google or known by the various courier companies. Many of the bigger Spanish chain stores have someone delivering who isn’t from the local area as well. This can complicate matters if you are waiting home expecting a package.
Often when you place your online order, you may have an option of shipping to your home address or sometimes a local store may work too. It all depends on where the online purchase was made and which courier they use to make the delivery. When we use Amazon, they have about 13 different options for couriers, so it all depends.
Once your order has shipped, you will often receive a notification naming the courier and the tracking number for the package. At this time, you may usually look up the status online and also request the package be delivered to a local drop point in town. Each courier has its specific location in town, so you will get to know this after a while.

Get creative with your package drop point
Unofficially, you can often ask a local merchant you may know, a nearby restaurant or inmobiliaria (real estate office) to have packages delivered. This is great for the La Herradura area. Keep in mind this is where your local relationships come into play, so get to know the businesses near your home.
