  1. If we could return, we would be likely to look elswhere in Mexico. Although our 13 years in Chapala were delightful, what we hear lately is pretty discouraging.

    Gastroenterologist

    I suggest Dr. Hector Valenzuela. He performed my colectomy, and I am just fine. He is very qualified, and a really nice guy.
  3. You may find a dealer in Jocotopec for scooters and smaller motos, but the full selection will require a trip to Guadalajara, where there are several dealers. Do you have a residence visa? CURP? RFC? Moto license? That and proof of residence will enable you to shop and purchase, and the dealerships will usually take care of getting your plates and probably deliver to Chapala.

    SUper Lake bean sellers gone?

    Those children probably do go to school, but must still contribute to the family income. School is split session with morning and afternoon schedules. Half of the children attend in the morning and half in the afternoon. So, you will always see children anytime during the day. Some must work to eat.
  5. Things have changed so fast in the digital vs. film world that you may have to step back in time. Finding commercial film developing shops will not be easy anywhere.

    GOOD chinese food anywhere?

    China Inn.
  7. We agree, then, but for a small detail; the definition of “best“. Saludos to Yvonne.
  8. The best “oftamologos“ will be found in Guadalajara, not so much at Lake Chapala.

    AT&T RIP OFF

    If building, it will be a good idea to hardwire every room for both telephone and cable lines, as well as a computer ethernet line from wherever your modem is likely to be located. Things are changing fast. If you don‘t want all that done, you would have to use wireless gadgets, which can be difficult in heavy, reinforced masonry construction.

    Gardner to be

    Many of us, on this board, are much too old to be sowing any seeds any more. 😥

    AT&T RIP OFF

    Advice: Never get mad in Mexico. Never expect refunds in Mexico. Never expect things to be anything close to like they were “back home“. Adjust, or be adjusted. Mexicans are friendly and very helpful, but you must play by their rules of customary behavior. If you need help, start with a greeting, smiles and handshakes. Then ask politely for help. Then, follow their instructions exactly, with a smile and verbal expressions of gratitude. Oh.....Never tip a person who volunteered to help or assist. It is an insult.
  12. It is probably still on the 4th floor of the Palacio Federal, 500 Alcalde, if I remember correctly. Contact information is on their site: https://www.inm.gob.mx/gobmx/word/index.php/jalisco/

    Airport Configuration Since Remodel?

    It is so “ridiculous“ that it encourages use of the parking garage and results in less traffic circuling the area while waiting for passengers to arrive for pick-up at the curb. It is entirely possible that they planned it that way, based upon experience and congestion.
