  1. I use whatsapp to communicate with Totalplay. My fingers work better than my ears so communicating via text is less frustrating and more productive.
  2. Rosa Zepeda 332 801 7499. Managed the Vivero across from Laguna Centro for about 25 years. Bi lingual and thoroughly familiar with all local plants. Buena suerte.
  3. FWIW, with a cancer diagnosis in the US, we also had GNP insurance in Mexico who had one of the top oncologist/hematologists in Jalisco in their network. I forget his credentials but it was something like President of the Council of Hematologists in Jalisco. Exact same diagnosis and exact same treatment protocol as the US. Our Gold Plan BCBS policy in the US required that we wait until Stage 3 for treatment. Got cancer, good luck with that Due diligence on your part and luck is your friend when it comes to health care here or there.
  4. I think the CO2 process and third party testing is very important. I would not experiment with CBD products for pets that are available locally. Your pet may never wake up. Although local CBD products may have benefit for humans the results may be disastrous for a pet. Nuleaf is a quality product.
  5. Probably the most dangerous drug event in Ajijic is when an older guy drops his pill box in Bar Azteca and mistakenly takes an Ambien for a Viagra.😵
  6. On a sidebar, if you have the need to ship via DHL (i.e. Amazon returns), then Ishop San Antonio nor Ishop San Juan Cosala can help you. That leaves the DHL office on the carretera en Ajijic el centro, so good luck with parking. There is a new DHL office in Joco for the West enders. It is on the main drag Miguel Arana one block before the plaza when coming from San Juan Cosala. It is to the right of the Veterinary supply store.
  7. I had that problem once and the solution was to spray the sheets with Coors Light. They were gone within seconds.
  8. I renew monthly. I just put an alarm in my calendar app to remind me a day before it expires.
  9. On the Amigo plan if you renew before the plan expires then your data will rollover to the next monthly cycle, I started renewing early late summer 2022 and today I have 15 gb. I normally get 3gb if I renew after the expiration date.
  10. If you live in West Ajijic-Jocotepec area there is also an iShop in San Juan Cosalá at the hotel on the carretera about 50 meters west of the entrance to the Aquas Termales.
  11. When I was tourist status I used Mexadventure.com. Chris is the guy there. One accident and all went well. One year policy is usually the best deal if you crunch the numbers.
  12. I think I remember the previous gov of Jalisco, Sandoval, got whacked in PV a few years back. Maybe Alfaro is doing his job as he should. I will give him the benefit of doubt. Es el mismo pero no igual. No different than the police, the politicians may all be the same but not equal.
  13. My next door neighbor was in need of extensive care in upper Ajijic back in 2012. There were three unmarried Mexican sisters across the street who managed his needs for about a year. Forunately they could walk to restaurants, Ajijic Clinica, and Farmacia Guadalajara. Driving required the help of another family member. They were paid as much as the elderly expat could afford. The financial compensation was reasonable at the time. Eventually his health deteriorated with dementia and he was moved to a nursing home. A year ago, a single expat who lived next door to the sisters had a stroke. The sisters have helped her a lot during her recovery. There are options for some. YMMV.
  14. I have what I was given in Ajijic at the office across from Bancomer.
  15. I suggest you ask a trusted neighbor. You may be surprised how caring and helpful your Mexican neighbor on your street will be. Mexicans know that their govt will not help them so they depend upon each other.
  16. I had mine laminated at a papeleria. Something like 12 years ago. Likes like new today. And keep a copy in my phone in the archives folder just in case I lose it.
