  1. I mean no disrespect, but after reading certain responses to my post, I get the impression that some members of this group are dealing with unresolved issues and quite possibly have stopped taking their meds. Just saying.
  2. Mainecoons, Your words are truly telling and insightful. Thanks 😊
  3. My hope was to get a current gauge of the economic situation in Lakeside, I wasn't trying to obtain any left vs right viewpoints, or cause any discourse among the group. The article I read was published in a newspaper from Mexico City, and was written by a Mexican reporter. Apparently the inflation rate in Mexico has increased dramatically over the past 3 years, and I just wanted to get the groups feedback on how it's affecting them and the LC region. Thanks again
  4. I am not one who typically watches the news, due to all the misinformation these days. But recently I read an article stating how much inflation is impacting Mexico's economy, especially gas and food prices, so I just wanted to get the groups thoughts on it. This war in Ukraine, along with the residual economic effects from the pandemic are wreaking havoc on the global economy, and I am sure this has something to do with the rental prices, and economy in the Lake Chapala area. Are any of you seeing or experiencing signs of inflation in your daily life? I look forward to hearing your feedback. Thanks, Dante
  5. I greatly appreciate all of the feedback and information. So many different experiences, and yet the overall consensus still seems to suggest that the area still maintains most of its charm and affordability. This is a big decision to make, as all of you are aware and I am just trying to ensure that I take everything into consideration. I have made plans to visit the area in a couple of weeks, to gain a better perspective and hopefully find an affordable place to live. If any of you have a good resource for rentals, please let me know. I'm excited and nervous about this opportunity, but looking forward it. Thanks
  6. Fred, I would much like to discuss things further. Please let me know your email address. Thanks
  7. I completely understand what you mean. I consider myself to be pretty low key, and I try to get along with everyone. I lived in Europe for 10+ years and I learned to to just go with the flow of the locals. I am not one to force my opinion on others, which is one of the reasons why I am migrating from the US. I believe in staying positive and thoroughly enjoying immersing myself in the culture of wherever I find myself.
  8. Thanks for the encouraging feedback Fred. I have actually been looking at Jocotepec, and it seems like a very nice place. My biggest concern is my lack of Spanish. I have been practicing, but feel a bit embarrassed and unprepared.
  9. Hola my friends, I am currently in the pre-retirement phase of my life and for the past few years I have been researching many areas of this planet, to call my future home. Time after time my research always brings me back to Lake Chapala. It seems to fit my requirements perfectly. Low cost of living, beautiful location, nice people, quality of life, not overcrowded and peaceful. Just what I'm looking for. At least that's what my research was telling me. Recently my research has been starting to show me a different picture, and I am starting wonder if the dream still exists. I'm starting to notice that everything I mentioned above about Lake Chapala, appears to be attracting more than just my attention. The region seems to be experiencing an increase in population, which in-turn is being reflected by higher rental and cost of living prices. I am still hopeful, but I would greatly appreciate some feedback from the group. I look forward to hearing from you and gaining your perspective. I am seeking a better life and hopefully your knowledge and guidance can help me attain it. Thank you, Dante
  10. I lived in England for many years and visited Bournemouth quite often.
  11. Cheers mate, by chance are you from the UK?
  12. Yes, that is pretty much the same information that I read. It appears to be an isolated incident 🤞
  13. Hola, I will be traveling to Lake Chapala in April, and I was wondering if LCS offers any kind of tours of the area, or can assist me in locating a company that provides them? Thanks, Dante
  14. I searched the entire Informador website, but didn't see anything else related to traffic issues.
  15. I am not sure what really happened, it looks like it was related to the crime boss that was captured. CJNG: Susana atestigua bloqueos en Colima durante cuatro horas (informador.mx)
