  1. Doug tsk for the link, I'm still in Canada but others in Chapala are in need of information?

    Google says the cost is: At both airports, the laboratory managers will charge passengers on international flights 450 pesos for the antigen test and the PCR 1,450 pesos.

  2. Just received this notice from Aeromexico indicating that Chopo is supplying tests results for it's Travellers!

  3. We drove an Ontario plated car back to Canada to sell it. The gentleman who bought the car a Honda suv noted that my Jack was missing? Go figure, 5400± km later! The gods of Mexico where with us, the jack not. A lesson without consequence?

    We have had great success with the body shop just West of Nomad on the Mnt Side of Hidalgo. 2 Brothers own it & do all the work with a small experienced staff. 

  4. So after much back & forth, the policy came down from $8,783.46 pesos to under $3,500 with a 5% deductible down from 10%. We accepted! As some of you advised they refused to change the total loss stipulation? So thats the result for now! Looking forward to Chapala travel possibly April/May, very cold & damp here. Now, to top up the property managers funds for the staff looking after all the gardens & pool.

    For me it's ALL about the driver, and nothing about which company.  We've used Juan thru 3 different gas companies over 19 years (before that the company across from old Salvador's, but they let us down too many times) .... his current truck is Tomza but makes no difference. He gives exactly what I ask for and is always most accommodating.  Poor Juan.... with solar hot water we take months and months to even use 1/2 tank... but he delivers the same cheerful smile every time.

    Is your Juan a larger man with a happy way about him always dressed in denim with smaller side kick on the ladder detail. If so, I challenged him once on short changing me 100pesos, he pulled out a bill & handed it over. On review I discovered he had not shorted me so I handed it back. He just smiled. I only fill up once a year now with our new pilotless hot water heater. Our Juan was with Los Altos when we last used him, however he has been with several different companies in the past 11 yrs. Always the same cell phone number thank goodness!

    I tip them 5 for a good and courteous job of pumping the gas, 15 for window cleaning front and back.

    The young lady who works the lake side island at the Riberas Pemex does an outstanding job of both.  I get my gas from her whenever possible.


    She is also a very pleasant person, smiles et all!

  7. So Daisy, who did you end up with if you don't mind telling or sending us a PM. We did receive a quote much reduced like 50% but as Angus states the whole car must be stolen. I not sure if damage to the car in an accident is covered? Will ask!

    I have only seen policies here that cover theft of the whole vehicle. You might find your car without a motor or transmission, up on blocks and get no claim rights. Ask Parker. On S&S' storage policy, ask Karen or Spencer.


  8. We have a gated car port, u can not see in, it's locked from the inside. The electric garage doors are disconnected, the car battery has been disconnected from inside the car, the rims have wheel locks? All keys are here in Canada! Parker wants a min of $8,783.46 pesos? I'm in Riberas.

    If you can offer any further advice, sound off! We would be prepared to pay to have limited theft & damage insurance but do not believe any company offers this with their property insurance for a stored car? All observation are appreciated. S&S stores cars, do they offer storage Insurance?

  9. Take a water sample to your pool supplier & have the water tested. Make corrections & test again. Then use the recommended Chemical.

    The pool company East of super lake has an instant test device. An internet search will also provide alternates available in Guad.

    That Green is a very nice colour especially if the water is crystal clear.

  10. I have been using xe for yrs to transfer money converted to whatever peso's euro's to accounts all over: they remove the agreed money from my account at an agreed rate & transfer it any bank account in the world that has the standard international banking information (Swift numbers). Never a problem , repeats are extremely easy, money usually is deposited in 3/4 business days.

  11.  We have not had any luck getting through to BBVA? We are in Canada using a VOIP phone

    The combinations are exhausting:

    800.228.2728 as suggested then we tried the following below:

    01.800.etc or sub 880 for 800 or sub 833 for 866

    001.800.etc add 001.52.800 or sub 880 for 800 or sub 833 for 866

    All we get is a loud rising & failing tone. So all help is appreciated
