  1. I have had issues getting accounts with some banks because I cannot receive texts on Magic Jack. I find that to be a real issue since some will only offer that text option and I have actually lost out on opening accounts because of that issue. I find it to be a real pain on occasion but keep plugging along and keep giving them m majicjack as my mobile number and also using my Laredo post office address as my US address. I am generally happy when most banks are willing to send your security code for log-in via email !
  2. Mexbound is correct -- the W. Ajijic is named Ancla just next past the entrance to La Reserva lakeside. It is too bad he can't rename the Elegante location Ancla Dos, as someone else previously suggested to me. The Elegante's previous managements' reputation is bringing him down -- they had high prices and lousy food. I wish more people would give this a try. We have had dinner there maybe 7 times and brunch there twice and each time was great. Just not enough customers coming through the door, even when the snowbirds were here. The owner's name is Jose and his main waiter is Alfredo, who is top notch and always accomodating. Will give you salad or something else for a side when you can't have starch, etc.
  3. I find that to be true and have never had a bad meal there. Their steaks, lamb, fish, pasta and poultry have all been great meals. My favorite brunch dish on Sunday's is their Eggs Benedict and free Mimosa is always a nice plus. Hope their pizza might be good since we want something good available close to Ajijic. I want this place to survive because their quality and prices are so darned good in a good location !!
  4. Under this new management, they have great food at great prices! They are now offering new promotions to gain new customers ! We go there frequently! Please see the attachment :
  5. I use my Capitol One 360 Debit Card ( by Visa) as my ATM card. I only use it for ATM withdrawals, although it could be used as any other ordinary debit card. Sorry for making a simple question so taxing for everyone.
  6. That is true and I knew that. However, people are still getting various exchange rates, which I am interested in hearing.
  7. I know all that, which is why I asked for what people are getting for their ATM rates !
  8. I have had door locks where they change the combination ( much cheaprer than replacing the lock) and as a result you need a new key made to open it. Aragon did that for me.
  9. Not the way he placed them, trust me.
  10. I know XE.com com says today about 17.66 but what rates are people actually receiving from their ATM withdrawals? Thanks.
  11. OK, back to the actual article ......whoever said in the parentheses that (taking the driving test "is a fairly simple procedure") is either lying or on the receiving end of the mordidas for all those you had to pay to pass because parking behind two small invisable cones is NOT " a fairly simple procedure". I could not pass that at 59 and have never had an incident in 12 yrs of driving down here and elsewhere !
  12. Unfortunately that seems to be a frequent trend here for both pool maintenance and gardeners. They work well for a bit and then get very complacent. Can't recommend a good one, but can tell you to stay away from a guy named Chuy for the very reason you stated above.
  13. I second Aragon in Chapala, probably the best Lakeside! They are very responsible, bring key machine right to your home, etc !
  14. I find the offerings on Firestick do a poor job of offering live TV except for the news. Lots of old junk on other TV networks added like Tubi, Plex, Pluto, etc. I am very disappointed in the Firestick offerings.
  15. I think you got hosed for not having MXN plates.
