  1. i just flew from guadalajara to chihuahua city on volaris, then from los mochis to guadalajara on calafia airlines. i showed my VA health card for id on both flights and no one questioned it and no one asked for my tourist visa either. you do not need to show a passport or tourist visa to fly domestically.
  2. aguascalientes is easy if you take the inner ring road around the WEST side northbound and the middle ring road around the WEST side south bound. the lights are timed at 60 kmph. 850 pesos for tolls from ajijic to piedras negras.
  3. try leo, hes on the street going down to CFE in chapala, about 4s door back from the corner. he has an upholstery shop and works on furniture. he just fixed 7 recliners for me that needed repair and were used in an old folks home .
  4. my nephew was tested yesterday, the name on the results was 1 letter off, it said san instead of sam, and was almost denied boarding this morning for a flight to san antonio but finally they let him on. the passport number was correct on the form. after boarding and arriving in san antonio tx no one asked to see the results.
  5. ribera hospital on the libramiento does antigen tests for 700 pesos, fast and efficient. results on your cell phone or pick up a paper copy. i took 6 people there one morning and they did a fine job. and theres a nice cafeteria on the second floor.
  6. there is a place called FIX MOBIL in chapala. guys name is bryan and he speaks english. he is a few doors east of the bus station in chapala going east in the next block. the next block past the bus station on the left.
  7. call margaret at 1-480-797-1343, she has a secure parking area covered. its on miguel blanco in ajijic
  8. i did the math and found it in their in literature. maybe you should try it.
  9. i caught intercam charging me a very high fee, .92% on a savings account and then lying and denying it. i proved it to them and they still denied it so i moved to orourke. much better.
  10. there is no test required for domestic flights but you need a smartphone to take a picture of a qr code which opens a questionnaire on the phone and you can fill it out and show it before going thru security along with boarding pass. they have paper forms too but i didnt see any. this was on a flight to los mochis and back to gdl last month. there are people to help if necessary.
  11. there is a sign on the wall across the carreterra from pechugon in ajijic and it explains the fines for burning garbage, 145,000 pesos.
  12. its down revolution a bit from the corner of GV. big black doors. its not hard to find!!! it is NOT on GV. inside the black metal doors there a nice yard , bar and seating. the food was very good the 1 time i ate there and others have liked it too.
  13. the food is very good. and friends ate there last week and said it was great.
  14. When could I look at the Gorky Gonzalez dishware? I live in the village but have a car. Pam Bell 376-766-0415
  15. i was told it was members only at the one on pepe guizar, and there is another regular branch 2 blocks east of the chapala bus station.
  16. i put money on my temex landline bill at telcel in centro laguna about 10 days ago.
  17. i entered at piedras negras on oct 30 and got a car permit and tourist visa. no problem what so ever.
  18. i left ajijic on the 29th of jan. spent night in saltillo then to colombia bridge. spent 64 dollars on tolls including the 28 pesos at the bridge. went thru aguascalientes and bypass around zacatecas. have never seen so many trucks from saltillo to colombia bridge. took 21 minutes to go around the inner western ring road in ags. new overpasses and much improved.
  19. as for the colombia bridge, it is 18 miles up river from nuevo laredo and is in another state, nuevo leon. i do not believe it is in the city limits of nuevo laredo. i cross southbound in nuevo laredo and northbound at the colombia bridge. i also go thru saltillo and on to zacatecas and aguascalientes then guadalajara and i use my US debit card at all but 2 toll booths, they only accept cash,pesos, from the border to lake chapala and at all pemex stations. never had a problem but i NEVER let it out of my sight. i stay with the card at all times. therefore i spend very few pesos on the trip, its all on the card. i make this trip 4 times per year.
  20. yes , it works just fine. but the checks im depositing are US checks.
  21. if this person has a US bank then check and see if the bank allows online deposits. i have deposited several US checks into my US account with my iphone.
  22. i drove into mexico on christmas day, got a tip on my car and a fmm visa for myself. flew out on the 9th of jan and back on the 11th. no problem whatsoever. im assuming you have a tourist visa. the airline check in people will tell you what to do. i had to take my land entry 180 day fmm to immigration on north end of terminal and have it stamped and turn it in at the gate. the airline people had a stack of them in a drawer from other passengers. a lady travelling with me flew in on the 30th of dec. the airline took her fmm when they gave her a boarding pass so she did not have anything to turn in at the gate like i did. i asked and they said it was because my fmm was from a land crossing. i got another 180 day fmm when i came back into gdl on the 11th. i will turn both in at the border before they expire and should have my deposit back in 2 days.
  23. i cross nuevo laredo often south bound and use colombia bridge to go north bound. i would spend the night at the city express on north side of monterrery, go to colombia bridge early, they open at 8am, take care of my business and head south again. zacatecas is a fine city and 8 hours from the border. you wont be very close to nuevo laredo at any time.
  24. i use the VA in central texas. i had a quadruple bypass on the 28th of oct., 2 weeks ago, the VA authorized the top cardio thoracic surgeon in austin to do the procedure and great post op care. they have been prompt and easy to deal with and have now authorized 35 cardio rehab sessions. in my experience they do a fine job.
  25. the road from saltillo to zacatecas is wide 2 lane in good shape until north of concepcion del oro then it goes to 4 lane divided in good shape. i set the cruise to 75mph and people pass me going at least 90 a lot. there are no tolls on that road from saltillo to just north of zacatecas and then 2 small tolls on the bypass around the east side of zacatecas. the tolls from ajijic to colombia bridge thru aguascalientes, zacatecas,saltillo monterrey are about 800 pesos. there are 9 gas stations between saltillo and zacatecas and its a 4.5 hour drive.
