  1. I used to get one of these from Intercam Banco every year, however, this year they ran out. Anyone know where I could get a different one. I miss it!!
  2. I do realize that the seller of a house only pays the real estate comission. The buyer pays the closing costs of purchasing a new house. Thanks for all the comments. I more or less got my answer.
  3. On our TV, we could not get Shaw at 6 am, but by 7am it was up and running okay.
  4. Is there anyone out there who has recently purchased a house in the municipality of Chapala. I was just wondering what the closing costs were as a percentage of the total purchase price. Have not purchased a property since 2015 and thinking of moving. I believe the biggest cost is that of the Notaria Publica. Would appreciate any and all replies.
  5. It is a way of life here. I have been living here since 2011, from Canada. You get used to it eventually. Never mind the noise curfew. You will never stop them setting cohetes (sky rockets) during the Ajijic fiesta, or festival. This is life in Mexico. If you can't deal with it, I suggest you move somewhere else. I lived in Puerto Vallarta for a couple of years and never heard them there. Apparently it is just in small villages in Mexico. It will go on and off here from now until after Easter. Then things should quiet down.
  6. I have to get trifocals and was just wondering if anyone has used this place recently, and if so, were you happy with your new lenses. It is where Dr. Pinto used to be. The only other lens place that I know of is in Chapala on Madero. Are there any other places here that provide good lenses, i.e. Chapala, Ajijic? Would appreciate your advice. Also, if there is a place in Guadalajara that you really like, would appreciate the name, address and Colonia. Thanks.
  7. This address is incorrect. He has left Villa Nova for some time now and moved back into his old office, just west of Colon on the lake side - No. 4B. On his new business card there appears to no longer be a landline. Just a cell and whatsapp number. The cell is 333-310-0927 and the whatsapp 332-234-7329.
  8. Ours went down last week for the first time since we contracted with them. We called and they said they would send someone out. Low and behold, a couple of hours later a tech person from TotalPlay showed up. Apparently there was a problem with trees and wires down our street. They had it all sorted out within about 45 minutes. Very impressed. Never had that type of service with Telmex.
  9. Thanks for the comments. No more are necessary.
  10. Has anyone used this fellow's services and were you satisfied?
  11. Maybe you are looking for Ministerio Publico, where you go to register thefts or other crimes against you. It is on Calle Gonzales Gallo in Chapala.
  12. Tree blown down on Calle del Manglar, Villa Nova, near Callejon del Arroyo.
  13. Unless the rules have changed, you are not required to forward your medical receipts to the government with your return; just keep them on file in case you are audited. I have been doing this for many years now, and have never had a problem.
  14. There is a little store on Upper Colon that repairs appliances. I once found vaccum bags for a vaccum we inherited in the house we now live in. Have had other things repaired there as well and they do good work.
