  1. I recently was taken here after a cardiac emergency. Although the medical care was fine, the checkout process was very stressful especially since I was there as a heart patient. First, although the doctor was ready to discharge me around 10:00am, I was held up until after 4:00pm waiting for insurance clearance that never came. To add to the aggravation, I was billed for an extra day's stay because I was in the room past the discharge time. Reading many other comments on Facebook, I see that over billing is a common practice here. Beware!
  2. Check out the brand new rendition of HouseSitMexico where you can find qualified house sitters or look for house sitting opportunities for yourself in Mexico. Check out the website at HouseSitMexico.com and if you sign up now, there's a 50% off coupon for a limited time.
  3. RVGRINGO, iShop encourages sharing and they seem to be doing quite well.
  4. My partner and I have different last names and we have had a mailbox their for 5 years with no problem.
  5. Yes, but it happens all the time.
  6. I have a mailbox I can share. It's at iShop. Let me know if you're interested. You can pm me or email. 


  7. I'm looking to share a mailbox, preferably at Handy Mail beginning no later than September 1. It can be an existing box or starting up a new one. Please PM me with your response. Thank you.
  8. The Chapala Plus bus that runs from/to Guadalajara and Chapala no longer operates into Ajijic on the Carretera. The Directo via the Libramiento runs each hour with the last bus to Guad leaving Ajijic at approximately 7:30 pm.
  9. Another alternative if coming from Austin is to cross at Laredo/Nuevo Laredo or Eagle Pass/Piedras Negras and proceed through Saltillo to Concepcion del Oro, about another hour south on the road to Zacatecas. This is a newly widened road and is faster and cheaper than the route through Matehuala and San Luis Potosi. There is a small, secure hotel in Concepcion with an attached simple restaurant. I haven't traveled with dogs, but we had no problems staying there with a cat last year. If you'd like more details on this route, let me know.
  10. is enjoying another day in paradise
