  1. San Blas Questions

    Yup I agree with you guys, we looked into Oct. but many places already booked, checked March and same, so we are looking at the end of April into May. Gosh you guys are a wealth of info and I have bookmarked many suggestions you have had, I also found tons of suggestions on Facebook from the On The Road in Mexico, they have been very helpful also.

  3. San Blas Questions

    I have been to Oaxaca area, I want to do a beach trip along the coast of the pacific from Sayulita to Cuyutlan, we want to check out all the beach towns along this route. So we are looking to stay a couple of nights or more in these towns so far: Hotels around the $1000p a night in Sayulita, Punta Mita, Yelapa, La Manzanilla, Melaque and Barra?

    Is that Oaxaca?
  5. San Blas Questions

    Yes I have driven the roads before, we have stayed in PV many times but we are tired of it.

    Remember they don't serve free drinks or snacks, you have to purchase anything you want. Our neighbors had their flight coming back from Vegas canceled and showed up a day later, now they are somewhere far and their flight was canceled again and they come home 2 days later, makes for house sitting organization a bit difficult. We just flew with them a month ago without any glitches. We booked 2 different flights with them, no problems. We even knew our pilot coming home, he plays softball with Wayne.
  10. Today there was a checkpoint at 10:30am this morning at the cemetery and then we returned at 1pm and it was gone.
  11. Here is our story, we are armed with some peace of mind I hope! There have been 9 burglaries in our area so they are hitting hard here. We emailed and called the company that was highly recommended in Guadalajara our neighbors have had them for 12 years, no response, when we called they said we had to email. #2 we went to SOSE and set an appt. they came a day later with only a Spanish speaker which was ok and 1/2 way through an English speaker came to translate which we didn't need. They said they would send an estimate in 2 hours it arrive 1 week later. Expensive, 3 different quotes. #3 we made an appt. with Edgardo at Smart Home at Centro Laguna, he was prompt, answered our calls and emails but his prices were a little higher. #4 we went with Carlos Gonzales he came recommended from people in Vista del Lago, he has done many homes there, he has been prompt with emails and phone and text, but he has been having some trouble with getting all the equipment from his company in Guadalajara. He was a little bit lower after we switched what we wanted around a bit, he really worked with us. So what we ended up getting is the expensive, industrial outside motion detectors, (we want to stop them from getting in) inside, we have motion detectors, inside keypad and remotes, and a siren, we are still waiting on the equipment that will text us when the alarm goes off. Carlos' contact if anyone wants it is: SSIA is the company 331-304-1187 charliepes@hotmail.com He also does Garage door openers, Intercoms, Video doorbells, Automatic barriers, Control access, cameras, electric fence, and more.
  12. Proof of Address

    Ok so we have to renew our drivers license this year and I just realized that a well known lawyer here drew up our rental lease and did not put my name on it, so I have absolutely nothing with my name on it to prove residence, any ideas on what I can do?
