  1. Some people type Temex but mean Telcel. Telmex has about 75 million subscribers and AT&T Mexico about 28 million and growing.
  2. Possibly here: https://centralmarket.com/2016/04/25/mexican-olive-oils-are-a-buttery-delight/
  3. There is little doubt that in most of Mexico especially outside of metro areas, and lakeside the actual coverage of Telcel is better with fewer blind areas. But since AT&T bought up a couple of companies they have been working to expand their network and to compete with Telcel. Both offer various options of pre-paid as well as monthly contract plans. Depending on an individuals needs one might be better than the other for pricing. When traveling in the US with a Telmex Canada/USA/ Mexico plan Telmex uses the T-Mobile network which is not always the best coverage in the USA outside of metro areas.
  4. Then they are the exception. I have received packages with international tracking from USA, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, China, Germany, and Great Britain. and Belgium all with international tracking
  5. I have had many DHL, and FedEx international packages opened for inspection in Aduana. It is a numbers game. If they see something odd on the it will be checked. Also packages are randomly chosen for inspection. Every country is more or less the same.
  6. If you are sending packages internationally you must pay for international tracking. If not when it is handed over to a different countries mail system the tracking ends.
  7. There has been no upsurge in cases here since Chapala was "opened up" a few weeks ago. As of Monday Chapala has 4 active cases with 5 awaiting test results. Jocotepec (where Raquet is located) has 3 active cases with 2 awaiting test results. For comparison on July 2nd Chapala had 2 active cases and Jocotepec 8 active cases
  8. Medicine and medical devices require an import permit. FedEx, DHL, or correos de Mexico are all the same. It does not matter what port of entry. There is no way of knowing which packages will be selected for opening & Inspection. If it is a prohibited item or an item requiring an import permit it either needs to return to sender or it will be destroyed.
  9. August 10 Monday updates Chapala active:unchanged awaiting results: unchanged Jocotepec active: unchanged awaiting results:unchanged Ixtlahuacán active: +1 awaiting results: -1 If you have comments please do so by PM
  10. Upper Chula Vista is a long ways from Cumbres and Chula Vista Norte and is not connected with either in any way. You would need to ask the homeowners Assoc about water in Upper Chula Vista.

  12. posted earlier in this thread The Ajijic postmaster was there(in Chapala) and told me that my box will be transferred to Chapala on Tuesday and that I will keep the same mailing address that I had in Ajijic as well as the same box number.
  13. Government agencies in Mexico do not make telephone appointments. It is done on-line. Here is the link for DL appointments https://citas.jalisco.gob.mx/transporte/client/locationList
  14. I just received the message Your number is an affected zone. There is no need to report. We are working to solve the problem
  15. I'm pretty sure anyone receiving the scam call mentioned by the OP on a VOIP Canadian or US number would know that no one calling could possibly know if they had been "in close contact" with anyone in Mexico. Much less send a test kit from Canada or the US to Mexico.
