  1. Please, contact information, address for Dra. Mayra.
  2. Was there by appointment this morning. They had computer problems and so the process was very slow, just under two hours, most of it standing in line. I’ve done it myself years back at the old Chapala office. But the years and hearing loss have taken their toll, and being unfamiliar with the new semi complicated paperwork requirements and office procedures I used Luis from Spenser’s office. He did a wonderful job preparing my paperwork and explaining how to work my way through the maze at the tránsito office. I did it myself 8 years ago here in Chapala when It was one big room, with lots of signage in English spelling out procedures. That office was closed up years ago. I went to Guadalajara 4 years ago with an expeditor. The current office here in Chapala is updated Jalisco government bureaucracy at work. It probably is efficient and effective when their computers are working properly. The paperwork requirements are listed above. Remember to get an appointment on line ahead of time.

  4. The only sponges I like for every day kitchen/ bathroom use are the ‘ 3M Scotch-brite ocelo multi-purpose’ variety. Super Lake has occasionally carried them over the years but not recently. I ordered them on Amazon U.S. Affordably priced, received expeditiously, and now have a two year supply or more.
  5. When I moved to Chapala in 2004 the exchange was 4 to 1 and I thought I was getting a good deal.
  6. I have iFibra, internet only, in the Lourdes area of West Chapala in addition to Telmex. Telmex goes down so often and I switch between them. A few months ago Telmex was out for a month and trying to get a tech out to check was beyond frustrating. IFibra goes down too, but usually one or the other is working. I have no problem streaming Netflix on iFibra.
  7. Santander in Chapala, just before the the main intersection as you approach the light on Hidalgo (the carretera) coming in from Ajijic, San Antonio, etc, has zero fees on Capital One debit cards, and a daily limit of 9600 pesos per card. You do need to decline their ‘suggested’ exchange to get the higher rate. For many the parking will be a negative consideration. I personally have no problem walking two, three blocks or more. And depending on the day and time of day there can be a lineup (frankly no different from CiBanco now that I think about it). I prefer to go late afternoons, 4 or later, when parking is easier and the line usually short. It is a 24/7 ATM. Occasionally, very seldom, the two machines will be out of service. Nothing like the CiBanco breakdowns. As with all Lakeside ATM’s I try to avoid going on a weekend when the ‘out of towners’ are here.
  8. Shopped at Walmart two hours ago. The booze is definitely off sale, off limits. They have taped off the racks. I thought , perhaps, it was another local government edict to discourage out of town parties this holiday weekend in line with the traffic check points, so interesting to read above that Walmart will keep the department closed down through the end of May. La Paz was closed also when I drove by.
  9. This development broke ground in mid August 2019, 6 plus months before the current uncertain economic times, and certainly is intended to take advantage of the recent influx of newcomers to Lakeside. There is/was lots of solid rock underlying the mountainside which has been gradually chipped out to supply the materials for the extensive stone walls that now encase the development. The development fronts on Niza, runs up the mountainside from Niza, and along Niza for several blocks. Several other developments have been built in this same area in recent years, primarily utilized as weekend/vacation 2nd homes for wealthier tapitos, but nothing close to this in magnitude. The street Niza is already inadequate to handle it’s current traffic load, and, as with many streets in Ajijic, only one car can pass through certain stretches of Niza at a time.
  10. This is old news to those of us who live in the Lourdes area (the French Quarter of Chapala - Lourdes, Monte Carlo, Niza, Marseilles, etc.).Very interesting that they have torn down the mountainside below and very close to homes, most of them new, some still under construction, that sit on top of the ridge above this development in progress. A couple of directional observations: The development is not above Lourdes (the street) but rather east of Lourdes, and Mr. Crowe runs up the hillside from the carretera about a half block east of the Monte Carlo Hotel complex. Mr.Crowe dead ends in steps climbing up to Niza.
  11. El Zapote, 2 or 3 blocks east of the main/centro traffic light.
