  2. Land invasion is common in Southern Mexico... I know several cases of both Mexicans and expats who havelost the land they own to the zapatistas, ejidos and others..Buying large amount of land where the locals won small parcels just because you have he money does not seem to be a good idea. In Chiapas at 2h from San Cristobal a cuple of foreigners bought land at the entrance of Tonina and developped a macademia ranch alomg with a guest ranch, they worked the land , employed many locals and helped a lot of people 6 or 7 years later just before the first harvest came in , the zapatistas cam

  3. Let me start with a confession. I'm not living in Ajijic any more. I now live in Queretaro. But I have made a few trips back since moving and this site has been a good way for me to quietly asses any issues like traffic that are going on. But in this case, I feel I need to speak out because I would feel awful if I didn't and someone was made for the worse for it. Three months ago I had COVID. I had a moderate case and did not need hospitalization. But afterwards, I just didn't get better. The fever went away, but he shortness of breathe, (SOB,) fatigue, chest pain, strange symptoms comin

  4. Dear Carnivore, There’s a lot I can say about your post and experience. First of all I want to apologize for your bad experience, secondly you mentioned being in the food industry yourself and should know that the best thing a customer can do “is let management know of your experience “ your food wasn’t cooked right ? You didn’t like it ? Let them know!! It gives them the opportunity to fix it! Why go behind “doors” and criticize and talk bad about the place when they have no clue there’s an unhappy customer. Good or bad reviews helps us grow. But the most important ones are the one brought up

  5. So Thursday AM i had stroke # 4 over the last 15 years. Got the CR ambulance to take me to SAT. My Cardio phoned the emerg doc with instructions. My Cardio and his assistant attended to me 3 times[haven't got his bill yet] before I was released on Friday 1PM and instructed not to drive for 2 weeks. Here is what it cost[hospital only] for everything including room and food,terrific nursing and 2 emerg docs,EKG, blood & urine lab tests, glucose IV and oxygen, CAT scan of my skull, ultrasound of my carotid artery and various and sundry other things for a grand total of $1800 canbucks Wowser-

  6. it is a family business. they owe us no details. rejoice in the knowledge that they served almost 50000 meals to the needy. be empathetic in the knowledge that they have been open for decades and now this and just on the off chance that covid is involved why should you worry. they are CLOSED. you cant go there.

  7. WE know several foreigners have WELL over 6 dogs...... so don't think this is a "Mexican" issue. (No we are not included) Some are more mindful than others about the noise etc. their dogs cause. In past years, at least two were "invited" to leave La Floresta when their dog counts got to 14 or 15......... So don't be so quick to condemn the Mexican population at large. The fault lies with the individual in each situation.

  8. Daisy 2013 "Since thing are so iffy with the virus, not the time to hire a new person Everyone now has so much time on their hands, try cleaning yourselves." Wow, more unasked for life advice. Not everyone has (1) time on their hands (2) the physical ability to clean house (for any number of reasons, which are personal.) How about you use some of the time on your hands to do a little introspection?

  11. I only responded with a "sad" emoji because an "angry" is not available. What a wholly inappropriate and frankly, asinine post. These are good people doing good for the community and they don't deserve $%&/()s spreading rumors. FYI- If you go anywhere right now you accept the risk. Period.

  14. You have to wonder why people post wrong information.. and then justify it it by saying “Somebody told me that”. Manix isn’t closed, he’s struggling like many other restaurants here. Wallmart isn’t allowing only one family member in they allow anyone who wears a mask in. Please check your facts before posting.

  15. This entire post has become so ridiculous that it's now only best described as bad or drunken humour. In case some of the more self-aggrandizing posters have forgotten....the whole purpose of the forum it to allow restaurant clients to honestly report their good OR bad experiences so that anyone who happens to read the post can make their own decision about patronizing the eatery, OR not. Some of the most recent posts can only be described as drivel and an incredible waste of time for both the poster and reader!

  16. I went for a single stem cell injection in my left hip as my cartilage is almost gone after 51 years of dancing on it. I forget the man's name, but he also comes from GDL and provides this service in Dra. Justina's Clinic. I had an x-ray before the procedure to confirm my suspicions of diminishing cartilage. He told me to wait about 5-6 months and get another x-ray. I did and my cartilage is growing. I can only speak for my experience but I'm grateful I caught it in time while I still had cartilage for the stem cells to initiate re-growth. I did research before choosing this procedure an

  18. So what your saying is many of the foreigners and Expats here are struggling.. Are they here illegally then. ? Because if they are here legally they must have produced financial statements to immigration showIng their monthly income or a substantial amount of money in their bank account over a period of time. They may not be living High off the hog but they are certainly not struggling like many of the locals here who don’t have a nice pension coming in to their bank account every month...

  22. Many places are rebottling from large containers to small pump type bottles so there is no way to tell what the product is. The sanitizer used at front door of Walmart is very sticky compared to other hand sanitizers. If the virus doesn't get you the hand sanitizer might.

  24. A friend just returned from New York, flying direct to Mexico City ( to avoid U.S. stops with more CoV contagion) and then here. No food service on the plane. She went through FIVE sanitary checkpoints in Mexico City airport.... mask, temperature check, gel, and health questions. Mexico is taking the threat from entries from other countries quite seriously. And yes, for sure if you are coming from a more actively "contagious" state. Walmart requires temp check, mask, and gel plus is taking head count for entry. One person per family "unit" allowed in. (Not always observed.......) Res

  29. Of course not. Spanking is what parents who have no parenting skills do. Same goes for empty threats. Children learn how to be civilized from positive reinforcement of good behavior and natural consequences. A spanking isn't a natural consequence. If your child doesn't do his chores and goes off to play with his friends instead, a natural consequence would be the parent saying, next time the child wants the parent to drive them somewhere "Remember the other day went you went off without washing the dishes and I had to do the dishes so I'd have a clean kitchen to make dinner in? Well, I was pla

  30. I too am happy you had a good experience..... but a friend was not nearly so lucky last summer when, after collapsing at home, she was taken to that hospital and orders given to them by her cardiologist to see her thru until the next morning. When he arrived none of his orders had been followed. He RUSHED her to Guad hospital (lights and sirens all the way) where she spent several days, 4 in an induced coma, and her family NOB were notified to expect the worst. Fortunately she did survive. Then, I was more than dismayed at the price they quoted me in February for MRI of lumbar spine. (C

  31. I can completely understand hard and fast rules in public buildings or spaces where nobody has a choice like government offices, grocery stores, hospitals, airplanes, etc. Private businesses can determine rules for their own establishments and customers and employees can choose to be there or not. There are topless bars which you don't have to enter if you choose not to spend money there. No shoes, no shirt, no service. Mask required to enter. No running allowed in store. Lots of examples. So why can't private business decide what they wish to do in their own business? Besides, MC is

  32. I cancelled my health insurance about 2 years ago. The annual premium was about 25,000.00 MXP. The deductible per event was about 110,000.00 MXP. I live in an all Mexican neighborhood in Chapala and have a great doctor (who is also fluent in English, not that I need it). He did a house call once and the costs was 200 pesos. We do not live forever, so I enjoy every day like if it was my last, its amazing how stress free my life is now. ☺️

  33. You are not a doctor so I suggest that you aren't qualified to describe my stroke. There is no such thing as a mild stroke. Since I have had 3 others I know the symptoms on immediate onset and act quickly. Our nest egg is just fine but feel free to throw your cash away. We humans have choices don't we--eh!

  35. How about banning heavy perfume wearers? Just as hard to enjoy a meal, and likely also a health issue when there's the overpowering smell of someone having doused themselves with what would appear to be a entire bottle of cologne.

  36. Yes, it is one and the same. I just know that one of Mike and Mario's office phone #s is 766-1117. Oh, and I have an older Chapala directory up here in Seattle showing that their second office # is 766-3371. Oh and they have been in business lakeside for at least 24-25 years. And I have always had very good luck with them.

  40. You are wrong. Manix is open. Hector has been honest in saying they are struggling, as are most eateries. Why not just delete that statement from your post? Some people don't read entire threads and as long as your inaccurate post sits there, it could harm their business.

  42. Another interesting side effect seems to be depression, I hear about it from France and I see it in the indigenous communities in Chiapas, It seems that men are more prone to it.. it may be the same thing as the long hauler symptoms, I do not know but the amount of depression and the feel bad and or sick symptoms seems to be on the increase. ii.. I would not take any of the medecine advertise as the "cure " in Mexico on a bet. False and misleading ads are filling the papers in Mexico and the internet on a daily basis..

  43. I suggest that restaurant owners check this website for opinions. I would find it very uncomfortable to discuss my dissastisfaction with the owner of the restaurant. Who would be more aware of the shortcomings of the food and/or service than the owner? The lack of awareness would only be believable if the owner were not directly involved with the day to day operation of his/her business. The owner's post was unconvincing, at least to me.
