  1. Moving companies

    We were very pleased with Chapala movers. His quote was about $1,000 less than the competition, his men were meticulous packers, had great personalities, and everything arrived without any breakage or loss. I had asked for some "pre-packing" days so there wouldn't be a crunch on moving day, and Winston was quite pleased to oblige. Everything went like clockwork. We were notified when the truck cleared US customs, and the same trailer that was loaded in Mexico showed up in our driveway. The unpacking crew arrived a couple days later. Nothing broken!!! I recommend these guys!
  2. We were very pleased with Chapala Movers. Winston's quote was about $1,000 US lower than the other guys, and his men were meticulous packers. The truck was loaded very carefully, such that items would not shift during the long drive to the US. A couple weeks later the very same truck showed up in our driveway and the contents were unloaded a couple days after that. Everything arrived without breakage or loss. Winston gives you updates by e-mail too.
  3. We used Spencer's services as well and were pleased with the turn around time.

    Thanks for all your help Spencer. You are the best.
  5. For those of you who have not yet started the process of obtaining visas, use Spencer. He'll give you a good overview of the process, the timeline, and decent status reports.
  6. More parking meters in Chapala

    I found a place where the streets are wide and open, the parking is free, the shopping is wonderful, and there are no speed bumps to break your teeth. There are restaurants everywhere, the people are friendly and we don't have to fend off the car-washers or the guy selling wiper blades in front of MBE . There are no burned out traffic lights here, and driving, once again, is a pleasure instead of being dangerous. The installation of parking meters in downtown Chapala was the beginning of the end. It made me focus on all the things we used ot have in the States, and one day, I just picked up the phone and called a realtor in Florida. We never drove back to Chapala unless we absolutely had to.
  7. Internet outage in Riberas/Chula Vista

    I have to hand it to Telecable tech support. This is for real. I walked into their office and said my Internet was down since 7:30 the previous evening. To my surprise, the tech followed me back to my house, switched out the modem, and when it didn't come up, he retrieved a cable tester and flunked his own line. Within 2 hours of my initial visit they had traced the problem to a loose connector and I was back up and running. I was very much impressed by Sergio and the other techs that converged on the house. Wow!
  8. Cafe Magana

    Oh good grief! Not again. Your petty complaints and puerile vituperations embarrass us all. If you don't like the restaurant, don't go. It is as simple as that. There are numerous choices of food and ambiance; I am sure you can find one to fit your palate. If you have no idea, try Bubba's. Hopefully, they will build a McDonalds soon and you will have a place to go and "have it your way." There's only one person who writes like this so here goes: I would like to say that we always enjoy coming to your place, the hospitality and the food! No matter how busy you are, you always have a kind word or quick joke for our table which is very much appreciated. We're coming back for more. I think I'll buy water for the house!
  9. GPS for Mexico

    Hi everybody, I have a Garmin Nuvi and it absolutely mangles the Spanish pronunciations of street names. It's so bad I had to turn off the audio and just use the map. Does anybody else have this problem? Or, how did you get around it? Thanks in advance
