  1. I found this subject interesting so I went to the plaza in Jocotepec and asked if anyone knew of rentals....there are no rental agencies here.....everything is done or most everything is done by word of mouth. I have pictures of two houses and info on a third. One with 4 bedrooms, large walled yard, 4 banos.....8500 mxp. A second one with a large pool and large yard, US style kitchen....5 bedrooms with 4 full baths....$800 usd....the 4th is a former government owned house that has been declared surplus and now for rent. I am told that english is spoken. None are furnished. PM me if you want to

  2. Quoting Senoir D, "You may love it or you may not but they deserve a chance to serve you , give them a shot . Remember , if you don't like something doesn't mean it's wrong , just not necessarily for you." Quoting Computer Guy, "lectures me on how I should think about it, and how I should give them a chance, and how everyone is different. In my mid-60s now, I think I've figured that part of life out" Sounds like to me Computer Guy you may have it all figured out in your mid 60's but might want to re-read what Senoir D wrote in his comment. I do not see where he LECTURED anyone. Ju

  3. You are replying to a 2 year old post. If they needed it and didn't get it, they're probably dead by now.

  5. There is something in the air: All sense of humor has been wafted away, leaving ignorance and illiteracy behind. It is either that or cheap tequila. A third option is too much coffee, leaving an uptight, jittery drunk at the keyboard. Is "lighten up" a racist comment? When will it all end?

  9. Best tuna we've had in Mexico! And we try it everywhere, at least once. Excellent service, clean outdoor seating (under a great shade tree). Owner visited every table. Menu is mariscos. Tacos and tostadas with upscale twists, some Asian influences (the spicy sesame salsa is incredible). Various ceviches and aguachiles. Nice offerings of various bottled salsas and bowls of pickled onions, pico de gallo and cole slaw. The tostadas are square and hearty....I am guessing they are homemade or from an artisanal source. We had: Tuna sashimi tostada 55p. The tuna was in

  10. My wife was listed as " Maria del Rosario" on many agencies in Mexico. She got a Notary to draw a paper and list maybe 8 different names she had been called by those different agencies and it said that they were all "Maria Rosario". We took that paper (time consuming) to each agency and they changed her name on their forms, and combined some, as they sometimes had 3 accounts for her with different names. Cost was 500 pesos for 3 official papers. She has a different name on her US passport than her Mexican passport, but never a problem in the US or Mexico.

  12. You will never get an MRI in Ajijic in your lifetime. There is the new Hospital San Antonio in San Antonio Tlyacapan Which has CAT.,MRI and Fluoroscopy. I am not sure if the first 2 are completed yet. And paulrobinson there is NO CAT scan in Chapala. There are a plethora of threads on here about that hospital.

  14. Now that’s what I call a restaurant review....positive..informative..menu....prices...opening hours . Now we can all stop by or not and make up our own minds whether we like it or not . No fuss...no muss .

  15. I think it's "lighten up" time. I'll bet nearly all of us were taken aback a bit at the "coop" title. There's just a few smarties on here who couldn't resist teasing you. I'm sure they meant no harm. 🖖

  18. I make a single good point, so those who disagree are now saying I've "got it all figured out". As if that kind of statement is going to detract the rest of us from what's going on. You really do think we are stupid, don't you? Stupid and unknowing. We have been lectured to dozens of times on this board about "giving them a chance"; that says to me you assuming that as a group, we wouldn't. And I do mean lectured. Telling me that we "are all different" is kindergarten-level, patronizing advice. There was no jest in your post, Senoir. (Except maybe in the spelling of your online identity.

  19. I don't know you, Senoir D, but I am assuming you're a stand up guy, so don't take this the wrong way: It really chaps my butt when someone on this board reviews a place and then lectures me on how I should think about it, and how I should give them a chance, and how everyone is different. In my mid-60s now, I think I've figured that part of life out, as have we all. Give me advice on where to get my car fixed, what day I should buy airline tickets, or how to make chicken broth. Do not tell me how to think. As far as restaurants go, we all will make up our own minds regardless of any pont

  20. Although the U S D A does its best to regulate the primal cuts , along with a great deal of help from the major meat packers it can still be a little confusing as many “ cut “ names are somewhat regional . When I order a full rib eye I have to stipulate which numerical I want...there are 12 slightly different cuts ....lip on ,lip off , fullcap , bone in and so forth .The main problem with the “ cap “ or deckle steak as we used to call it , is that you basically have to ruin the rib eye to cut it correctly . So the cost can be prohibitive and you are left with a sub - standard ribeye or “ jil

  21. Wow. Such angst concerning agents. First of all, a rental agency takes a monthly fee, so they are invested. I guess there are no "smart ones", because I know a bunch of 'em and they don't go chasing renters. And rental prices are just beginning to go down, as the whole real-estate market is slowing down.

  26. You can find just about anything you want stylewise, it is a question of knowing where to look. SO take it slowly until you know what you want and once you decide on the style ask for the places where to look.. Yes the bazaars are places to look at but they are no bargain here compare to Europe or the States.

  27. Yes, that is the same meaning, and the same god, if any were to exist. But, at that time, and in that place, it was Allah. The Catholic conversion just changed the name to God; Dios, Dieu, Zeus, Ra, etc......Take your pick. It still translates to maybe, sometime, perhaps, or not, depending upon whatever.....

  28. Ihave a name in the US ,a name in France and a name in Mexico , you do not need to change anything. In Mexico I used my Mexican passport and in France my French passport. On my bank card from the US I signed my married name on the other cards my maiden name.. I had a notario in Mexico draw a paper listing all the names I use and certifying that they all represent me.. and that is t..

  30. "AMLO deletes social programs from Calderón and Peña Experts say the change was necessary, but the diagnosis was wrong; he only seeks to put his stamp There is no "clear strategy" in the changes to social programs and their impact on the shortcomings of the population that requires it most, experts say.
