  1. It is part of the Mexican culture & heritage. , if you don't like it, go elsewhere.
  2. Thanks for your help John. Amazon appears to offer a solution for our situation.
  3. We are looking to replace what we have. A doorbell outside that we can answer inside. I followed John's advice & checked them out on Amazon. We don't need to see who is ringing, we just want to know why they are ringing & then determine whether to open the door or not. I did find one on Amazon that would work for us. Thanks everyone for your help. w
  4. Thank you for the suggestion, I will look into that.
  5. Thank you for your reply. I did ask one of the handymen who have done work for us, he scratched his head & suggested we get an "expert". I saw a similar product at the Home Decor store, I will ask them if they know any installers. What we have is at least 20 years old & likely a lot more, it is probably considered an antique! Worked perfectly until a week ago so has done it's duty, now it just buzzes really loudly both inside & out. I disconnected it Thanks again.
  6. The intercom was already installed (probably for several years) before we moved in. We have been here since 2005. It is not connected to the phone line. I will check around for someone who fixes these things. Thanks for taking the time to reply.
  7. Anyone have a recommendation for repair or replacement of a house intercom system? Thanks.
  8. Tony Gonzalez. He does excellent work. He does not speak much English but always brings a family member (wife or daughter) along who do speak English & if there is ever a problem they whip out their phone translator. Here are the numbers..331-276-0860, or 332-292-7976 or 331-050-6671. These numbers cover his cell, his wife's & his daughter's phones.
  9. We and several friends use Abrahan..he is fluent in English.. 331-487-7497. Lives in Chapala & makes house calls or will take your computer away to fix. Honest & reliable.
  10. Thank you I will let my friend know.
  11. Anyone have information of when the next booster shots will be offered in the Chapala area? In the past it has often been last minute info.
  12. Thank you everyone for your replies. Zocualco de Torres sounds like the place for us.
  13. Does anyone have a suggestion of where to buy some equipale furniture. Would like really good quality. Bought a couch many years ago from an area with many furniture stores, I think it was outside of Ocotlan but I can't remember exactly. Locally or Guadalajara would be great. Thanks for any help.
  14. Thank you for the information. Good to know.
