  1. There is Motorcycle repair shop in Chapala on the West side of Hidalgo, fairly close and across from the PEMEX station..Always a bunch of moto's there , you might want to stop and check if they will rent one for a few days..A spanish speaker would be helpful..
  2. Similar issue with the warm water in our house a couple of years ago..Turned out to be the submersible pump which we replaced and the issue was solved..The electric will usage will also increase, so will your CFE bill.
  3. True statement..but I would tell the neighbor I have decided not to sell..(Based on what he has learned) ..
  4. Who was the Notary that told you what you have written..Sounds like you should head to another Notary and start the process over without a word about the other Notary..
  5. You must 1st clear immigration then claim you checked luggage and then clear customs, then recheck your bags just beyond customs and proceed to your new departure gate which may require you to depart your arrival terminal and take a bus to another terminal..PIA.. Stop and ask as you proceed thru the terminal where the new terminal is located and ask if is walkable..You better have at least a2 hour layover and 3 to feel comfortable..YMMV..Good luck..
  6. We live just around the block and eat there often..We typically sit on the bottom level across from the Bar..never see smokers there ..there are 4 levels we never go up, too lazy. They have great Marg's and food is typically quite good..It has become our go to place..There are 2 additional places trying to make it on the North side of the main street leading to the fish places...Casa Barragan and Toca De Madero..food and hours vary..Good to fair..but quiet and typically not crowded..We liked Cozumel but they seemed to have slipped over the last few years..still have unlimited Marg's or Wine...There are several good small mom and pop places scattered around but not on the main streets, a new one is Antojitos 2 blocks North of the back of the Mercado ..On the N.E. corner of Juarez and Degollado..
  7. Go to the CFE office in Chapala with a fistfull of $500 peso notes and your CFE bill..Scan your CFE bill and start feeding peso/s until you have what you calculate is needed for your absence..then add another 500-1000 extra...I do it for the year..has worked for 20+ years without any issues..
  8. Same thing happened to us 4 months ago (had misplaced top portion of form) we filled out a new form on our flight into GDL. Handed the new form to the IMN with our RP cards, he promptly stamped the new form and threw the other half in the garbage and we were on our way..Your friend got the guy with an attitude that day..Filled out new forms when we left and they were accepted promptly for our flight out..We keep several extra forms for just such an occurrence..The INM office in Chapala does not have any of the INM forms and will tell you that you have to go the the airport to obtain them..So best to keep a couple of extra blank ones handy..Just in case..
  9. Harry has hit the nail on it's head..Way to many "do nothing whiner's" that are chronic posters..Amen Harry..
  10. I pay in advance at the CFE office...I pay what I calculate to be 6-12 months in advance and check it online every 2-4 months..6 years and never an issue..the bills have been correct to the centavo. Take a bill and scan it at the payment machine outside the office then start feeding it peso's...or go inside and pay the lady with your credit card..You can do the same with Telmex and cable bill at Izzi (this one is painful do to their miserable service)..This can all be done around the same time that you pay your property tax bill and water bill, etc..Good luck..
  11. Close to the hospitals and Graveyard..
  12. Take a taxi...or spend the night near the airport unless you / they are familiar with the GDL.- Chapala Hwy. and exactly where they are going locally..
  13. We had a delicious lunch yesterday, good food, good service, fair pricing, interesting selections (roasted beet dish was delicious), and even the chairs were ok for the hour or so we were there..A KEEPER in my opinion...Parking near-by is not possible on Sunday...a few blocks to walk..
  14. What are their rates??
  15. It sounds great, my question is, how will you test your download speed at your home prior to purchasing...I do not see how buying a 2100 p sim card will let you know what your speed will be at your home..We already have ATT phones from the U.S. that work fine at our home in Mexico with unlimited data, talk and texting ( we realize it slows after so much data,...we also have the ATT modem/router at another home in the States..we have had it for a year or so and it works great, Our home in lakeside could benefit from this ATT modem for streaming versus the Telmex we use now..I am will ing to pay the 2100p with the hope that it provides decent down and upload speeds..So I guess it is buy and try... How much is the ATT plan / month after the modem purchase..TIA
  16. A lot of talk but only one recommendation where to actually find them akin to the attached photo's and not just some packaged meat heated on a flat top and hoisted into a tortilla?
  17. Very considerate and nice of you Joyfull..Congrats..I only fly back and forth from L.A...Cannot imagine driving..Made multiple auto trips from Fla..many years ago, but only fly any more as my houses and Mex. car are here. We are flying down this week for awhile..Wishing them good travels on their trip..
  18. If you want good service and good food go to Tango...
  19. Remember that used car dealers have a different heaven and hell than the rest of us....
  20. I highly recommend Juan Carlos Perez Hererra. He's not only an architect, but also has his own construction crew - which keeps costs down His style is modern design but with a touch of Mexican charm. 33 11 27 93 37 (cel) or juancarlos.espacios.arq@gmail.com. He has several homes in the area so you can see, first-hand, the quality of his work. Speaks better English than I do, if that's a factor. Suerte!
  21. Anyone have knowledge or experience with this service..May provide Netflix service here?? Getflix Lifetime Subscription for $39 StackSocial offers a Getflix Lifetime Subscription for $39. That's tied with our January mention, $816 off, and the lowest total price we could find. (A 1-year subscription costs $33.18 alone). This service allows you to access popular streaming services globally without a VPN. Deal ends June 10. Note: This offer does not include subscriptions to Netflix, Hulu Plus, Vudu, or other streaming services; it's just the VPN service. You can read this online at: http://dealnews.com/1696532.html
  22. Just for info for the rest of us what was the item that Aduana took exception with? We may be able to avoid your problem in the future..
