  1. The worst thing about a big box store locating at the intersection of the Carretera and the Libramiento would be the added danger from the additional large semi tractor trailor delivery trucks coming down the Libramiento from Guad. to stock the store. Most would be overloaded (80,000 LBS +) and some would have brake failures at an intersection that would be even more congested than it is now. The idea a of a big box store located at this location needs to be addressed with the Municipality of Chapala for what that is worth.
  2. If you are looking for a high end gas BBQ you can find them at Tio Sams on the Libramiento and Strom White Movers (showroom) on the carretera in Ajijic.
  3. According to the US gov. Fruit imported from Mexico has lower levels of pesticides than that grown in the US.
  4. Our gardener's wife, Maria is looking for some extra housekeeping work. She is not available on Tuesdays. Maria speaks some English. I can say that if she is as good a worker as her husband Flavio, she she should be great. They live in San Juan Cosala and she will travel. Cell # 331-261-1118
  5. Zumba classes are held at Vista Alegre every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 10am. Fee on Tuesday and Thursday is $30 pesos and Saturday's fee is $35 pesos. Vista Alegre is located on the Libramiento across from TioSams. Just tell the guard you are going to the Zumba class in the clubhouse.
  6. We have auto ins. in Mexico with Qualitas Ins. the largest auto insurer in Mexico. We have "called in" an accident claim to them and the response very prompt. Agent on the scene in 25 minutes. Very pleased with the outcome. You can purchase Qualitas insurance through Bellon Ins. locally or through Lewis and Lewis
  7. The eastern part of lower la Floresta has experienced numerous house break-ins in the last couple of years.

  14. Does anyone know of this archaelogical site, location, is it worth a visit, etc? Thanks
  15. Is there anyplace local where we can take some old documents to have shredded? Thanks
  16. Thanks for the reply Desertdave. We too are in a gated community, Vista Alegre. The possibility of saving $ is good but not the 50% increase in the meter installI. I understand Chula Vista Norte is now on water meters. My initial fear might have been confussing the water meters with the CFE smart meter problems I recall reading about.
  17. Went to Simapa today to to pay my water bill and they said I would need to have a meter installed and we would pay $1,500. Pesos for it! I am skeptical of this idea. I told them I didn't want a meter. They told me I could go to Simapa in Chapala to discuss this. Any comments would be appreciated.
  18. Interested in having a whole house voltage regulator installed for the protection of pool pump in addition to the house. Who sells them locally any any advice about their use and installation would be appreciated. Bill
