El Granero for sure but be warned that they are seasonal here.
I was buying them for my hubby but can't remember why I was buying them for him. Anyway, all of a sudden they weren't available and the owner told me about the seasonality and availability from her supplier in the Abastos.

edited to add: I think it was for the magnesium...

Thank you ferret, I will check out El Granero.

Abstract
Brazil nut (Bertholletia excelsa) is one of very few consumable products with exceptionally high levels of selenium. The mean selenium concentrations of two shipments of Brazil nut used in the present study were determined to be 16 and 30 micrograms/g. In contrast, most common foods contain much less selenium, from 0.01 to 1 micrograms/g. Previous research on selenium cancer chemoprevention invariably used a pure compound, whereas little information is available on the efficacy of selenium delivered naturally in a food form.

Be careful. Too much selenium is just as bad for you as too little.
