  1. I've spotted jaguarundi close to where I live several times over the past 3 years. I've talked to the wildlife rescue people and they are VERY rare and the population is VERY small. With there was a way to protect habitat for them. Was also told by a local that there used to be a small herd of deer in the same area but a local farmer didn't want them on his land so he shot them.

  4. Translator required

    I will pm you the details.
  5. We are in need of a licensed english/spanish translator to go with us to Cuidad de Guzman on March 22, likely for the day. I'm not having any luck finding one so if you know of one please let me know ASAP.
  6. We've been told by Dr. Briseno to NEVER send him an email, he is busy and gets tooooo many to answer (only so many hours in a day). AND would you expect your specialist NOB to answer an email giving free medical advice? heck you can barely get a receptionist to confirm/make an appointment NOB. As for Dr. Pascual I have no information.

  11. 2 Written test yes but as I understand (and confirm this with Luzma) if you are over 60 then no driving test. I have heard there may be an age limit on obtaining or renewing drivers licenses but again, ask Luzma, especially if you are 'older than dirt'. 4 & 5 - send an email to Luzma Grande - ajijicconcierge@gmail.com She is a facilitator, likes to take small groups (2 or 3 people) in to GDL for their licenses so she can give personal assistance. Been doing this for a while and regularly so she will have all the current requirements and prices.
  12. Lots of vets (almost as prevalent as pharmacies and dentists); There are quite a few pet sitters/house sitters in the area and they are busy but until you develop a cliente it may be tough. The spay and neuter clinics always need volunteers (groomers, someone to do ears, toenails, tattoos and shots). Also check out HousesitMexico - https://www.housesitmexico.com/
  13. Furnishing needed

    Beg, Barter, Buy & Sell is a FB page that has lots of what you are looking for. Gotta be quick though - https://www.facebook.com/groups/785666514831385/ Also check the bazaars - several in Riberas - to name a few Tepuhua Treasures, It's Kinda Bazaar, Upscale Resale, couple across from 7/11, Todo Bueno, across from Parker Insurance, lots of them; there is Make it Cash in West Ajijic near the Brewhouse and French bakery.
  14. If you are really irked with dogs barking - this if from Ecologia Barking Dogs Procedure Talk to Secretary of Ecologia in Chapala. She gave us the steps to follow when a dog is too noisy and/or attacks: · Call to report it 7658025 (no English speaking, you will need a translator). · Provide the address where the dog is located. · They will go and inspect the address and leave a 1st subpoena, a second and a third one. After the third one if they do not show up at court then the Judge will fine them, or even give the order to take the dog away. · You have the option of collecting signatures from neighbors and present it at the Ecologia Office when making the report: Francisco y Madero # 202 Second Floor Monday - Friday 9am-3pm
