Has Interjet gone out of business?
benji's mom replied to kgreenbury's topic in Ajijic/Chapala/GuadalajaraI was having the same problem and made a last ditch effort. Googled Interjet Customer Service Complaints and called 55 1102 5511 on March 28. Asked for someone who spoke English and got through quickly. Because I had booked the "light" option, I could not get a refund and had to rebook............picked a random date in the fall and was charged the $3.38 difference in the price. Suspect I will change the date but it was a cheap way not to lose all the ticket cost. She did tell me that changes must be made 24 hours before flight time so good luck as flight date is come and gone but worth trying.
benji's mom replied to artsnob's topic in Ajijic/Chapala/GuadalajaraSome one posted a video of the accident in a Facebook group - the car was in the wrong lane passing one motorcycle and hit an oncoming motorcycle head on.

Good Eye doc in Ajijic for an examination?

benji's mom replied to Curmudgeon's topic in Ajijic/Chapala/GuadalajaraArroyo Alto replaced the copper wiring throughout the development and had TELMEX fiber optic cable installed in all homes. Speeds vary depending on the package chosen. Some casas including mine have speeds as high as 98 download and 20 upload. Very pleased with the project.
benji's mom replied to Willie's topic in Ajijic/Chapala/GuadalajaraI would recommend Chopa over Tolsa as Chopa is clean, modern, staff is friendly and have english speakers and was several thousand pesos cheaper for an MRI on my shoulder in spring last year.
Where can I buy a queen size bedskirt?
benji's mom replied to Chester's topic in Ajijic/Chapala/GuadalajaraI found our bedskirts got dirty from the mops then Martha Stewart came to the rescue. She suggested in a magazine to use an inexpensive fitted sheet instead of bedskirt which eliminated the mop problem but also solved the potential of the bedskirt being a bug ladder. Found a set of cheap sheets on Amazon in the color I wanted for less than $20 and got a bedskirt, a dust cover from the top sheet and cleaning bags from the pillow cases. Just an idea!
AMAZON ORDERS MEXICO DELIVERY
benji's mom replied to Apachewoman's topic in Ajijic/Chapala/GuadalajaraI use both Amazon Mexico and Amazon USA and always check items on I want on both sites. My experience has been that items on the Mexico site that show being shipped in from the states are more expensive than ordering from the US site. As an example, a pet urn was $35 dollars on the US site and the exact same product was $3500 pesos on the Mexico site. Also, some items on the US site are not always for delivery to Mexico but if you keep checking that can change. I deliver to our home in Ajijic as we have 24 hours guards who sign for the packages. FYI - Amazon USA tells when your package is out for delivery and shows how many stops away it is from your home.
Telmex optical fiber
benji's mom replied to Tlacuache's topic in Ajijic/Chapala/GuadalajaraI serve on the board of a condominium with underground utilities. We have a contract with TELMEX to replace the existing copper wiring with fiber optic cable and all homes will have the option of high speed internet. Any homes without TELMEX phone service will be provided with a number if they want the internet package. Owners can chose to keep their existing services at the same costs or move to a high speed package including a new modem. Rates for the packages are cheaper than what I pay now. I was in charge of the project for our development and have emails from ILOX stating they would not use any TELMEX overground or underground facilities. ILOX suggested options were string aerial cable or install additional conduits which requires major work to the roads. ILOX would not use the underground CFE conduits due to the danger from the power and water in the conduits. We started working with TELMEX in March 2018 and the contract was finalized in May 2019. There are several developments lakeside that already have or in the process of getting TELMEX high speed service which in our assessment was the only practical option for developments with underground utilities.
bank minimum balance
benji's mom replied to Alpha1's topic in Ajijic/Chapala/GuadalajaraWas in Bancomer yesterday as my debit card had expired. The customer service rep in the office at the back speaks perfect English - lived in California till he was 15. Was a delight to work with. He checked what my minimum balance needed to be and printed a document that shows it is on average 7999.00 pesos. Not sure why so high - maybe because we have checking and a Bancomer Visa. He told me must have activity in the account once every three years.
Looking for ceiling fan w/lights.
benji's mom replied to Eric Blair's topic in Ajijic/Chapala/GuadalajaraJust yesterday, went to Ventiladores in Guadalajara on Lopez Mateos and bought two new fans. They have the biggest selection I have ever seen - check out their website to see what they have. https://www.ventiladores.com/ There were two lovely ladies in the store who spoke english very well and in fact, I called the store first before making the trip to see if they had what I wanted in stock as I preshopped the website and there was no problem communicating on the phone. The prices were lower at the Lopez Mateos location versus the store by Andres Mall and much lower than Amazon Mexico. Good luck with your fan shopping
Pablo's Garage, West Ajijic
benji's mom replied to Arroyos's topic in Ajijic/Chapala/GuadalajaraPablo's gate are usually closed for security.............normally we just bang on the gates and someone comes.
Photo radar tickets
benji's mom replied to cedros's topic in Ajijic/Chapala/GuadalajaraGot a ticket delivered to our home in early December. My husband went to the office in Chapala to pay it and get the discount which he did. While there he was told there were other two unpaid tickets which they could not show him. He paid them all and the receipt showed ticket numbers. Different processes for different days, I guess.
Assuming you are flying from Gauadalarjara to Mexico City, we found it easier to get our INM paper stamped at the Guadalajara airport before we caught our flight to Mexico City

benji's mom replied to toots2's topic in Ajijic/Chapala/GuadalajaraIf the reply directly answers the question asked by the original poster, why should it matter who responds? It could be a person who has used the services asked about or someone who offers those services.
