  1. It could also be that your item can't be shipped to Mexico. I've used Amazon for a lot of things and my orders have always shown up early. There are some items, though (electronics, fragrances, etc) , that I either have to pay for mail forwarding or get a friend who's going north.
  2. A handy device that starts recording from the moment the engine starts. When a sudden impact occurs ,the camera records up to 15 seconds before and after the shock.

  8. Scam Caller back from vacation

    That's why it's so important to mention this as often as possible...to try and save the trusting/naïve from this piece of shit.
  9. Housesitters beware!!!

    TOTALLY agree with you, Kam. Someone is brave enough to tell us how they got scammed - to keep the rest of us from falling for it - and gets ridiculed. What some don't understand is that the robbers are getting more and more sophisticated in their approach and it can be very easy to get sucked in. I won't go back over what happened to hubby, but it was 50% luck/50% timing. When one falls, it just makes them that more determined to continue. If someone asks you for money, no matter how convincing, try to remember to ask a question that only the real person would know. I'm really sorry for what happened to you, Camille.
  10. La Antigua in Riberas

    You are so right, CG!
  11. La Antigua in Riberas

    I just tried the place today with a friend and was really impressed. Janet walked around and checked that the customers were happy (I sure was!) and the waiters were very attentive. Portions were good, quality was excellent and the menu selection was amazing. My friend and I sat there for quite a while and never once felt like we had outstayed our welcome. I'll definitely be back.
  12. Capital Gains Tax

    Again, thanks for the info, but I'm pretty familiar w/who pays what. The only question is CGT and the exemption and...oh, heck! I will update this once I speak w/the notario. I have the site that Pappysmarket recommend (thank you!) and it's giving me a very rough idea (heart is now off the floor), but I guess I could also flip a coin and have just as sure an answer. Gotta love living here!
  13. Capital Gains Tax

    Thanks for the answers. I've made an appointment with a local notario (this is for a house sale) to get a rough idea. My questions are just to stop my heart from hitting the floor. One other one: where do they get the valuation? From the actual buy/sell (when we bought to when we sold) or from the official predial valuation?
  14. Can anyone give me definitive answers to the questions below? I've read, re-read and am now going batty. Some sites say one thing, others say another. So...my questions: If you're a residente permanente, and have been so for over 3 years (4 in our case, but owned the property for 12) with a CURP, do you get the exemption? (Hmmm...what I'm trying to say is that we've lived here full time for 12 years, went permanent in 2013, and owned the property the entire time.) If not, how is the tax percentage determined? I've read it's anywhere from 1.92% to 35%--gulp! What type of taxes have most sellers experienced? I know I need to go talk to a notario, but any basic info/suggestions/etc would be appreciated. TIA.
  15. Internet Speed (again)

    Holy, Batcrap. I just tested ours and got 15.57 download. A SECOND milagro in Chapala Haciendas! http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/6382411651
