  1. Stiff mixed drinks Lakeside/chapala

    The bar at Hotel Real de Chapala is a very nice change of pace with a lovely view. The bartender is skilled and the drinks are top notch. He knows cocktails. The view is gorgeous anytime of day. The hotel is in lower La Floresta on the lake.
  2. What is The Chapala Reporter?

    small village, big hell
  3. What is The Chapala Reporter?

    me neither, constant sensationalism without any historical perspective
  4. Patio Umbrellas That Tilt

    Amazon.mx has a few and Amazon.us has a few that ship here. https://www.amazon.com.mx/Lizkona-P50601-Sombrilla-Patio-color/dp/B015NLVH3O/ref=pd_sbs_201_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=78C84EYCDYFWJ385W151 Amazon.mx and .us recently seem to be overlapping products since I have had more items I purchased off .us being sent to me via the Mexico fulfillment center. Two weeks ago I orderd via .us two pairs of reader sunglasses from the same maker and the source in Las Vegas. One pair arrived within 5 days from the Mexico fulfillment center. The other is expected next week because it is backordered. It will be interesting to see if the second pair arrive via the Mexico fulfillment center. Neither pair are listed on the Mexico site and both required abut $3.13 US deposit for duty but no cost for shipping. The pair I have received has had the duty deposit refunded.
  5. could you supply me with the hrt sources you mentioned in 2015 on this post

  6. Ladies┬┤bathing suits

    you could try 'La Sirena Reina' in Puerto Vallarta or 'swimsuits Puerto Vallarta'. Even if you don't post anything on Facebook having an account and being able to search businesses etc... is a nice alternative to Google, Bing and webboards. Virtually every city in Mexico and the US has a general information page with locals on it. Even for PV there is 'Puerto Vallarta: Everything you want to know' and 'PV Rants and Raves'. I just ordered two suits from www.swimsuitsforall.com and shipping was very reasonable.
  7. details Pancho and Superlake

    Don't you think if there were parking available in the rear that El Barco would have found a way to take advantage of that parking? I am hopeful that Pancho will be able to establish an alternative to Superlake,

    https://www.facebook.com/LaSirenaReinaPuertoVallartaQualitySwimwearforWomen/ located in PV she has been bringing items here for sales a couple times the past year, contact her and ask her about Guadalajara shops.https://www.facebook.com/LaSirenaReinaPuertoVallartaQualitySwimwearforWomen/
  9. details Pancho and Superlake

    Wine - from $109 to 198 cheeses - the big brie wheel for instance almost $200 now nuts - stupid expensive in the big Costco containers but even the small cellophane packets they repackage are up there melba toast - the brand I like almost doubled so the items I purchase that are generally on the expensive side are more expensive
  10. details Pancho and Superlake

    My shopping at Superlake this week resulted in a noticed 50 to 70 peso increase on about a dozen of our regular entertainment items. I wasn't surprised because they are not pantry staples, but still, that is a bit rich for a sudden increase. We used to justify the prices because Superlake having the items meant we didn't have to travel to Costco. 2018 will see us at Costco instead.
  11. need driving advice

    really time over convenience and decent road...longer but new road wins every single time. We drove 7200 miles over 7 weeks and the worst stretch of road in all that was the final 30 miles from the new outerbelt to Ajijic on the Chapala highway. Just outrageously bad.

  13. meat pie

    We love the chicken pot pie. Easy quick meal with a salad. Freezes well. Going to try the meat pie. Not familiar with those so it will be a surprise.
