  1. This region is extremely safe to walk day and night. Violence and muggings are not common for expats here except unless you try to make extra income in the drug trade. Those that do usually don't get out alive. If you use basic common sense and don't drink and hang out with mafiosos you will have nothing to worry. This area is much safer than most of the USA if you don't get stupid.
  2. México can be described by many wonderful and cutesy terms but peace and quiet isn't often used unless you are in a gated community further outside the towns and even that is not always guaranteed. For those quiter and more peaceful places a car is usually required or frequent reliance on ubers busses and taxis.
  3. Rest assured you will not be the only newcomer visiting here right now, not by a long shot. In my 11 years here I have never seen so many newbies moving here and visiting this area at once. I am speaking as someone living in Chapala. Chapala is being swarmed, the other afternoon I saw more gringos on the Chapala malecón than Mexicans and that had never happened before. I can only imagine how it is in Ajijic. But don't forget to check out Chapala too, its layout and affordabillity among other reasons may make it more rewarding than the other towns. It all depends on what the expat needs if you prefer gringo bars and gringo restaurants in an over crowed expat town Ajijic is your town. If you prefer to attempt to melt into the Mexican community surrounded by mostly flat, smooth and wide avenues and sidewalks with ample shopping and stores and not feel constantly bombarded by English being spoken then Chapala may be more of your cup of tea.
  4. I really don't see this truly being inforced in this area anytime soon since smoking anywhere is so prolific here even most of the police smoke out in the open.
  5. Just set it on the street. It will disappear in no time.
  6. But it is quite possible that some one reading this webboard may have experience about living in Veracruz and the satellite options in that area.
  7. First it rained on Christmas Eve and now its raining on New Years Eve. Tlaloc must be mad again. He's even sending us thunder.
  8. Maybe not Christmas night but we generarly get a week or so of cabañuelas rain in late December or early Janurary.
  9. I saw nutritional yeast flakes at the cremería behind the Chapala plaza. And since its owned by the guy that also runs Gourmet Garage I am he'll have some there.
  10. Garlic chewables?? I thought garlic and onions were to be avoided for dogs.
  11. Año means year and ano means anus. Not trying to be nasty just reminding people humorously to remember to spell things correctly. We don't want any embarrassing mistakes during this holiday season.
  12. Yes, happy anus doesn't have the same jingle.
