  1. What Do I need to buy and sell a car? What documents are needed to purchase a vehicle in Mexico? A passport is the best photo identification. Foreigners need a VISA TEMPORAL or VISA PERMANENTE, plus proof of address in Mexico. That’s to make sure you are legal in country. In Jalisco, Mexico a Tourist Visa does not qualify a person to purchase a car. What you need is a phone or electric bill no older than the past 60 days, showing the full civic address in your name. If a car buyer has no proof of address because documents are in the name of a previous property owner or the present landlord if renting, then there must be a copy of the purchase agreement or rental agreement (minimum one year) plus copies of the appropriate utility bills in the owner’s name and his/her picture ID. Copy all documents for the officials. INFO PROVIDED BY LOCAL JALISCO AUTO DEALERS

  18. Living style in the Ajijic village area seems to be preferred over other locations. What seems to be the motivating aspects of choosing a lakeside area? Quiet bucolic locations seem valued less. Please share any suggestions to assist in choosing a location at lakeside. Your own home location/site and its advantages and or disadvantages. Need assistance choosing lifestyle location in lakeside. And am concerned with finding a happy medium between high density population vs. water and environmental advantages of an area. Is Ajijic the location, location, location guideline to use ? Thanks
