  1. Hola Has anyone ever used Tecno Aqua in West Ajijic to build a swimming pool? TIA
  2. No CG recommended using him. Now who is spreading untruth ?
  3. Thanks for the info Mostlylost. Sorry for the late reply. I appreciate the information
  4. Hola Has anyone had a fiberglass swimming pool installed? I have searched here, Google and can't find any reviews from people having them installed here at Lakeside. I know about the water table issue. This will not be an issue for me as I am away from the lake and on a high hill. I want fiberglass because of the less maintenance costs. Anyone know who does installs or people that have them that wouldn't mind me contacting them. TIA
  5. Panda Networks cellular signal booster. Telcel in San Nicolas went from 3G 3-4 down to 4G 80 down. Put it on the roof pointed to cell tower and boom. Done. Haven't gone down once. No need for 2 services like some people have because they loose Ilox or Telmex.
  6. Omg!!!! I posted this to help people. I really don't understand what you are so pissed off about. I can not climb ladders, I'm not rich and this helps not having to have 2 services like many do. I hired a Mexican friend to install this and paid him well as I do with with all the work I have him do. I said what I said as not to insinuate that people should do as me. Take some midol and talk to us after your period is over. No offense to the ladies
  7. I've posted this before and I really don't understand why people don't go this route. I live in San Nicolas where there is no internet service. Telmex does not have anything to my development and Telmex told their service in San Nicolas is not good. I had Tecel for my phone but it only was 3g with about 2-5 mb download so it was to slow for almost anything. I did a lot of research online and talking with others in the business. I bought a Panda Networks cellular signal booster for $250 US. It's for Telcel 3g &4g. There is an exterior antenna and interior antenna all the cable and the booster. I mounted the exterior antenna on a 10 pole on top of my roof. Ran the cable down and through my exterior wall to the signal booster. The wired the interior antenna on the wall in my living room. The results are that I went from 3g 2-5mb to 4G 80MB download. Telcels plan unlimited no throttle till 100GB $399.
  8. So you assume that all expats don't hire locals ? You know A local Mexican who has lost his business because of the statement you made. Well A is not a good measure of people loosing their job, although one is to many, so you can of course state what you want but a good argument would show more than one (A)
  9. You are always assuming that Expats don't need help. How about their employees that have families. I'll bet that their employees are Mexican. OH wait, they work for gringos so don't worry about them ? When gringos go broke their employees will be fine ?
  10. Thank you. I hope this works for me.
  11. I haven't seen anything about this when searching so I will ask. I'm sure it probably still can't be done but wonder if the MX Govt is allowing people to renew their TR visas from abroad because of the Covid situation. I know I'm reaching and dreaming. I wanted to drive down from Canada , I have 2 dogs and we all know we can't cross the Can/US border. I know I can fly but don't really want to rent a car for 4-5 months. Looked at trying to get a dual citizen to take my car into the USA but that would be breaking the rules and all the many other problems that would bring.
  12. I pay mine from Canada and have no problem when using the app. Paying with a Canadian CC but use my San Nicolas zip code
  13. Your welcome Bisbee Gal. I was tired of getting jumped on by the few jerks on this board that think they know it all. They should spend some time researching instead of being keyboard warriors insulting and being rude to others. It's so easy to be an asshole when you hide behind a keyboard.
