  1. Hola.Just want to say that we moved to Lake Chapala in 2008.Spent the first year in Joctepec then found a rental in Puragua on the southside,lived there for about 6 years then  moved to Bucerias north of Puerto Vallarta.When the heat and umidity would not end till December we decided to move back to the southside of lake Chapala.We are both originally from the west side of Washington state and I also had 20 acres up in the hills of Okanagan so know the columbia gorge well.I think you might be like us and not want the crowded and lousy traffic of the northside of the lake.We like our wide open space.My wife will go once a month over to the northside to shop on early Sunday morning to get a few things we cant get over here.There is a great bus service via SUR if we need to get to Guadalajara,which is only if we have to.If you are in the bigger towns over her you can get Infintium internet from Telmex and phone.My wife has Telcel for her phone and also gets internet with no problem.We find it cost prohibitive.We have WIfi antenae on the roof and pick up one place to get free internet,but is kind of ify.My wife has DISH TV and found out they offer satelite internet so she will check out the price Monday as to cost for unlimited.Being from the gorge area sure you can handle cold winters.We have a firplace and 2 propane heaters.We go up to Mazamitla to buy our pine firewood.Mazamitla will remind you of Leavenworth.Only about half an hour from us.All kinds of places to go fishing for us also.PMme and will you give you contact info for us.Viva Mexico plus a lot of dairy farms locally here to get fresh milk.We have are own hens ,so plenty of eggs

  3. OK,have to chime in here.I have no hearing in my right ear since a teenager.Living on the south side of the lake starting noticing my hearing was starting to get bad in my left ear.Thought it might just be wax buildup.Tried a warm saline solution,didn't work so tried hydrogen peroxzide same result.After a few different doctor visits no relief.Finally was able to see a visiting ENT that came to Tizapan.After scoping inside the ear said I have some creature in there.After a friend and another doctor holding me down he was able to needle and forsep a ear wig off my eardrum.Was almost in tears from the pain from all the scrapping on my ear drum.After all that I pretty much had no hearing left.I was able to get a hearing amplifier sent here and did help.After it went bad no luck on getting any kind of hearing devise sent to Mexico.They all require a medical license or health certificate.We have since moved to the coast and I was able to find a ENT and Audiologist.Hearing test showed how severe my hearing loss was.They recommended a hearing aid from Sharkey.This was in Puerto Vallarta,company called OYEME.Bought a good behind the ear one for 16,000 pesos.Has been a lifesaver for me for 2 years now.Of course being here on the coast had to buy a dehumidifier case for it when not in use because of the high humidity.You could do a search and see if they have Sharkey distributor in Guadalajara
