  1. Your best bet is Farmacia Mascaras in Riberas. Ivan goes to Guadalajara regularly to get meds not always available locally.
  2. Avoid, avoid, avoid Enrique Hernandez, AKA Chavaria Enrique, Kiki Hernandez, or others. Every time he screws another expat he changes his AKA. Short, chubby, speaks English, and is a slick snake who grossly overcharges. Doesn't pay workers, doesn't abide by the law, and has NO scrupples.

  5. The limit per transaction at HSBC $15,000. I usually get that and it is almost always in all $500 notes, but occasionally they give a thousand or two in smaller bills.
  6. I can't tell you the name, but if you turn towards the lake on the road beside Sunrise Restaurant and go down to Raman Corona, then turn right, it's a block or two down on the right hand side. It's a very small place on the corner.
  7. I have, too. I have bought and sold many things there, and I am always happy with the transaction.
  8. I am gobsmacked by the number of people who think it's OK to enjoy the many benefits of living in Mexico, yet get pissed off when they have to pay duty to get goods brought in from other countries. We lived entitled lives NOB and as Mexican residents, we need to get over that.

    When it is available, they stock it at Gourmet Garage.
  10. Dra. Luz Zepeda has a location in Guadalajara, but also sees patients at LCS. She is excellent. Go to the LCS website to find her contact information.
  11. Does anyone ever cross at Brownsville? It seems a shorter route, and for those who can't do 13 hours straight through, 11 hours sounds better. Opinions?
  12. I buy mine at the same place I buy all my fruits and vegetables. It is on the west side of Calle Madero in Chapala on the same block as Guba dulceria. Esperanza stocks many things in bulk, always fresh and much cheaper than the gringo stores.
