  1. Cedros, you asked the wrong people. You should have asked Customs and Immigration. They control what a non-resident can drive not the Provincial police.
  2. Francisco seems to take only the jobs he wants, We have used Luis for several years and never had a problem. A couple of months ago I emailed Luis from Flagstaff on a Sunday and asked for a pickup next day late evening and he was there as always. The email in the above post is his.
  3. If you are looking for transportation call Luis at 331 307 8289. Francisco has not been active for some time.
  4. All international crossings by taxi are more expensive . The driver must be free of crime convictions (police report-cost). You need an I94(cost) He/she cannot pick up fares in the other country unless ordered from taxi dispatch. Has to return with no fare. The fares take all these costs into account plus border crossing fees.
  5. ATM limits are usually set by your home bank although the local bank may have limits per withdrawal. Just withdraw until the machine says "enough".
  6. Apps are available for cell phones. Saw one last week and it worked well
  7. Canadian non-residents CAN deduct medical expenses. I do it all the time. (Tax Preparer 30 years)
  8. Felipe Morales above scoped a car for me 2 weeks ago.
  9. Johnnies Restaurant on the east malecon in Chapala has 2 or so, Janelles Garden has one.
  10. After nearly 10 years I have basically given up on clothes made for the Mexican Market. In the last year I have bought shirts from Both LL Bean and Amazon mx (sold by Amazon.com and imported). Good fits and appear to be wearing better. Little bit more expensive than here but not expensive compared to US and Canada. Shorts bought in US 4 years ago are still fine as are shirts, pants and shorts bought in Canada 2 years ago. Shirts bought at Sears in Guad last year are already old. Will see what Liverpool has next week in Colima
  11. According to Chapala municipality we are supposed to get a Driver's licence office of our own this month. Has anyone heard anything further on this?
  12. Hidalgo and Madero There were 2 stores in Chapala he managed and also the Laguna Mall store. I know, I was one of the scammed ones and switched back to Telcel as soon as was possible. And because of that I will NEVER go back to AT&T.
  13. From his profile Saba - Dutch Caribbean Island of Saba - TripSavvy https://www.tripsavvy.com › Trip Planning › Cruises › Caribbean Jun 7, 2019 - Saba is mountainous and the tallest peak rises 2,864 feet above sea level and is covered by a dense rain forest. Saba is a mountainous island of the Caribbean, located about 28 miles from its sister island of St. Maarten.
  14. It will be effective when the government tells us and I am sure the Guad Reporter will keep us in the loop. I do understand the Mechanic in Chapala has closed up shop and left the area.
  15. It was in part but if you read this publication dated today it goes into much more detail
  16. https://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/bank-fraud-in-san-miguel-de-allende/
  17. When it says "out for delivery" it on the way from GDL.
  18. Jitomate restaurant will closed for vacation from Saturday 11th May to Friday 17th May inclusive.
  19. Jitomate did not have a menu until April 4th or 5th and even then most of the new menu was not available (his wife jumped the gun and set them out early). Just pizzas, a few lonches and the occasional special all posted on the wall so I am confused by your comment. Now everything is available on the new menu maybe you should try it again. Or maybe you are confusing it with another restaurant
  20. Potrerillos and Las Trojes are where Cookj5 described, on the north side of the north shore mountains not on the south side of the lake. Check your map
  21. You must remember that you need a wheel with the same stud configuration as your car. Also was it a full size spare or one of those smaller ones?
  22. Since the driving force behind Operation Feed is not expats but a Mexican man who saw the need, developed it and maintains that effort to this day. He even started a restaurant to provide funds to help sustain it. Agustin from Viva Mexico is a remarkable man. Yes, expats help with money, labour and ideas but it was started by Mexican for Mexicans and Mexicans still provide the driving force. If you want to help Operation Feed an enjoyable way is to eat at Viva Mexico now and then and meet Agustin. Of course you also donate or offer to help. Maybe we should probably look to Mexican influence in what you are suggesting but they do no appear yet to have seen the need. Are you volunteering?
  23. Gerard has recently added to his menu with 5 or 6 pasta dishes and 3 panzarotti dishes. Both home made pastas and panzarottis range from 120p to 170p and are very tasty. Well worth checking out. Gerard is celebrating their 2nd anniversary on April 15. Some free giveaways including margaritas and snacks. Their regular menu is available plus they will have live music until 9pm
