  1. Try doing a search on the Webboard. This has been kicked around for years with the mutual consensus that it is inadvisable. If you are determined to do it best check with a lawyer and unless your Spanish is 100 percent take an interpreter with you to Guadalajara while you sit from 5:30 in the morning until 3 in the afternoon getting Jalisco plates

  2. Every lakeside pueblo from Joco to Chapals has bars, restaurants and clubs next to and across the street from residences not to mention up and down the block. Yes, there are noise problems but most manage to work it out one way or another with the authorities and population there. As a 10 year resident as a renter, in the same location, I always have to option to give a notice and find another and better location. So i would advise all the "concerned" gringos to either find a gated community home or rent.

  3. Agree with Gringal......but.....some people are born to try and change the world to fit their view of how said world should be and function. It is the reason they get up every morning, rail endlessly about their favorite gripe, and try to force others to see how stupid they are for not seeing the gross injustices that are so obvious to them. They are usually called something like "community activists" and are admired by some and despised by others. They will be with us forever.

  4. The door was opened LONG before any of us got here. There is no such thing as a "residential zone" in any of these communities - other than gated communities or perhaps La Floresta. And even those communities don't have as much clout as they might like. We have a restaurant across the street from us that was not there when we bought our house - very busy with live music several night a week. Nobody in the neighborhood is thrilled but it is what it is. We all just deal with it. The biggest problem that we have is people parking in front of our garage - sometimes several times a week. Very inconsiderate and totally avoidable but not the end of the world. Still love our neighborhood and our house.

  5. We just had a very generous plate of three large beef tacos, with all the fixings, rice & beans, coffee + soft drink and a complimentary shot of tequila from the proprietor....$130 pesos plus tip. The serving is very large, so two of us shared the plate, and were full for the drive home. It was just after our visit to our Mexican dentist in Nogales, Sonora; 90 minutes from our house in Tucson. It always feels so very good to be back in Mexico, even a border town.

  6. Hola, My newest video is up. If you have kids, I highly recommend this place. It was a lot of fun. Please, if you like my videos, subscribe to my channel. Youtube has taken away their incentive for me to make free videos because I don't have 1000 subscribers, but you can help by subscribing.

  7. Might as well weigh in on this. I really, really, don't like living with noise. The sound level of whatever is tolerable to some; not to others. Good earplugs are one way of dealing with it. The suggestion about moving is insensitive, but if the noise is truly ruining your days, that is the final solution. When someone makes the decision to move here, there are options about WHERE to settle. For those who want peace and quiet but move to the center of one of the villages...WHAT are they thinking? ...that this is like NOB, complete with enforced zoning laws? ...that they are going to be able to change the situation? These are the folks who would enjoy life a lot more if they'd choose to live in a gated outlying community. That's the simple truth, since we are in Mexico with the purpose of enjoying our lives here. For those who didn't realize what they were getting into or for whom an annoying venue started up after they moved, maybe it's time to sell out or give up their rental and move on to a more lovable spot. Moaning and groaning is useless. Much as I love my old house, I'd do that if an unbearable noise situation happened.

  8. Glad you found your butter. However, there are 4 pages of posts regarding the butter thread. Probably best if you transfer your post to La Cocina

  11. Suggest you contact a professional such as an attorney familiar with Immigration law rather than depending on a chat board for legal advice. I'm sure the cost would be worth the peace of mind of knowing you got the accurate advice you seek. On the other hand if you're just looking for amateur opinions.........

  13. I am lucky enough to be far enough away from most of this. So I haven't weighed in, but this thread is getting silly. First, a legitimate gripe about noise is attacked by others who say it isn't noisy. If it is noisy to some, it is noisy period. To take people to task because it is not noisy for you, for whatever reason, is pretty childish. Second, saying you have lived here for 10 years and "most manage to work it out" is a pretty sweeping statement that indicates you are familiar with every instance of noise problems and have seen the solution to all of them. Well, I've been here nearly 20 and I can tell you for a fact I only know what I personally been involved in, and that is not much in the overall picture. So I don't buy the generalization at all. Third, this lame comment about "moving" is just that: pretty lame, and insensitive. Right now I have a dog-training school that moved in one side of me, and a house under construction for the last year on the other side of me. The daily noise is maddening, and frustrating, and all things considered, absolute b***sh**. But I'm not going to move, and give up my lovely home of several years, for a whole variety of reasons that would be obvious to anyone who lives anywhere.

  14. It's a bit further than Riberas, but the best auto electric guy (IMHO) is Jaime HERNANDEZ in SAT. Turn south between Fenex Real Estate and the Coke warehouse - Jaime is 1/2 block south on the left side.... just past the Vivero. Speaks English.

  15. I believe it all depends on what and why you need a clearance letter. State clearance for Jalisco is done in Guadalajara. Federal clearance is done in Mexico City although there is a Federal Department that SHOULD be able to do it in Guadalajara they are not geared up to do so. Both State and Federal clearance letters have been/are required on the path for citizenship/passport.

  16. Things do change but I have AT&T Mexico. AT&T is/was partnered with Iusacell, Nextel, Pegaso (formerly Movistar), and Telcel. Roaming out of the United States will have roaming charges. You might check out roaming options from AT&T and consider keeping your US phone for the exclusive use of your US friends. Also check Vonage option keeping your existing number. Of course you would have another phone for use in Mexico.

  18. I watch prices at many restaurants, and they continue to rise. However, to me $140 for chicken is not mid-level. It's chicken. And $200 for salmon is just too much, but I am sure... knowing Gringal's palate... that they must have been very good. However, I won't be testing those waters. I had a massive monkfish dinner at Tabarka yesterday for $130p. This is a fish that in cut and taste could almost be mistaken for a lobster tail, and it was perfectly cooked with two delicious sides (perhaps the best ratatouille I've had) and a sauce of my choosing.

  19. My wife just had both eyes done here. She had earlier consulted with a state of the art laser surgery clinic in the U.S. and found Dr. Acosta's facility to be every bit as high tech. She had laser surgery and two multi-focus lens installs for a total of $5700 U.S. at current exchange rates. This was over a $1000 less quoted her in the U.S. and that price included significant insurance co-pay. She is delighted, the procedure was swift and painless and the lenses enable her to have either short or long distance vision without need of eyeglasses.

  21. Some rentals have an "owners closet". Create one by putting a lock on a small closet door or a armoire set in a room. Some people also use shallow plastic bins under beds. Some people have used larger bins, the yellow and black ones that are heavy duty are good, and stack them in a corner of a bodega or garage.

  25. Don't see why this is such a stretch for you, M.C. You're old enough to remember when the U.S. mafia had a pretty hard rule about dealing drugs: You deal, you die. Indeed, many of them died.
