  1. I believe it’s the same rate in all ATM’s , the only difference is the fees you are charged…
  2. Transit police have been removing license plates from out of state vehicles for the last 16yrs that I know of. The police in SLP were really bad for bad for that. When I used to drive a vehicle with NOB plates I made a colored photo copy of my plates, when you put a plastic plate cover over them you can’t tell that they are paper unless you look closely at them.. They look good enough to get you home..
  3. Typical comments from entitled expats, the police do their job and you bitch, they don’t do their job and you bitch.. you have to scream “Discrimination” I got a ticket because I’m an entitled expat, not because I parked in a handicap space with no permit… He committed an offense and got what he deserved…
  4. I have used Cristy for many years, she is the only one i trust for early morning trips to the airport..
  5. Maybe you should trying going to the airport sometime, with the construction work going at the parking garage it’s a zoo there, difficult to find a parking spot., stopping to pick some up is a hassle.. Much easier cheaper and faster to get an airport taxi.
  6. A private driver the same price as an airport taxi.. And faster… mmmmm. ? Please post their name and contact information…I have never waited more than a few minutes, but then I usually arrive around 8am..
  7. They can’t explain because they don’t have a clue about Walmart politics…
  8. This is why you have to be very careful about what you read on web boards, some people just don’t have a clue.. it’s not hard to understand, but obviously some still don’t understand it…, Visa & MC Set the rate.
  9. It’s been that way every Easter for the last 16 years.. except during the Covid19 years..
  10. You can do it in Guadalajara, I always do it in Guadalajara, many do it there as well because it’s much easier than Mexico City especially if you have a short layover…
  11. You still need to go to INM at the airport just like before but you don’t need to fill out the form, just show your passport and temporal or permanent card and they will stamp your passport with the exit date..
  12. The best and fastest route is San Luis Potosí, Matehuala Saltillo, Monterrey cross at Colombia, the booth to get your TIP back is very easy to find, As you drive through the complex you will see a small white building on your left, there is an area to pull off the road in front of the building, that is where you return your TIP. After you exit the US customs head north on the 225 it will take you to I-35 or you can go right on the 1472 which will take you into Laredo, as you enter Laredo there are lots of hotels right along I-35. I usually stay at the Days Inn which just about the first motel you come across.
  13. Ishops has many different size box’s..
  14. Temporary or Permanent visa. RFC Number. And I think a CURP number which will be on your visa. You need copies of all documents.. I would ask at the registration office on Degollado in Chapala
  15. Another newbie coming here trying to impress us with his wisdom..
  16. Don’t waste your money on a Firestick cube unless you want to dim the lights or ask it questions..such as “Is it snowing outside” most TVs will do a better job of upscaling than a cube. Your Firestick will not upscale anything. If you have a 4K TV and a 4K Firestick and the program you watching is 4K your picture will be 4K, if the program isn’t 4K then your picture won’t be 4K unless your TV upscales it.. The Firestick 4K and 4K Max both have voice control so can ask it to find a program and other TV related things. but It won’t dim the lights for you…
  17. I would purchase a Firestick 4K Max. It’s available on Amazon Mexico for $1599 peso shipping included. I would also purchase a Firestick Ethernet adapter, it allows you to plug an Ethernet cable into your Firestick $350 peso…They maybe be cheaper in the US. I don’t think it matters where you register it. Unless you use a VPN it will know exactly where you are. I use mine in Mexico, Canada and UK with no problems.
  18. That was the best consignment store around lakeside. I doubt if anyone even remembers the things they had there, it has to be close to 4 years since she passed away. I hope he keeps the money in memory of Terry, she was a very nice person.
  19. I live in La Floresta, there are recycling bins at the top of the street, on many occasions I have witnessed locals go through the bins taking all of the tin cans, aluminum and other metals and drive away with them.. I’m assuming to sell.
  21. The choetes (Boom Booms) are nothing like they used to be 16yrs ago, back then they were twice as many for twice as long. In my opinion they have been cut back because of the expense. Expats who want to change Mexico to a place they come from like to use the excuse “Mexican families don’t like them either” In 16 yrs I’ve never heard a local Mexican complain about them. Sure they may nod their head while listening to expats complain about the cobblestones, the loud music, the noisy celebrations, choetes and just about everything else here, but in their mind are they really thinking “Why don’t you P off back to where you came from..
  22. Another newbie wants to come here and change Mexico.. Maybe you should have done your due diligence before you moved here..
