  1. Call pool guy Chuy Jesus Rodriguez 333-956-7323. He speaks english and is a good guy.
  2. I have bought them on the lake side of the caraterra in front of Guad Pharmacy and at the stand at east exit form Walmart.
  3. Costa Rica is quite expensive. Cost of living + rent Mexico is 20.91 Cost of living + rent Costa Rica is 35.31 cost of living index https://www.numbeo.com/cost-of-living/rankings_by_country.jsp
  4. You are looking at the Telcel store, read the sign. The ATT store is on the right, not in your photo.
  5. No standing in front of Alex's Pasta it will be on your right hand
  6. There is an ATT store 2 doors toward the caraterra from Alex's Pasta Bar
  7. Using credit cards is no more risky than using cash or an ATM. If using cash you'll never get the correct change because employees are not trained to count the change, especially Walmart. Even using it for gasoline I get 4 or 5% rebate, down here that can easily be 20¢ a gallon In the states I will always drive a few miles to get fuel for 20¢ per gallon less money. I get a cell phone SMS alert every time there is a charge on the account. I also like the 2-3% rebate for using the card for other purchases. You do have to be cognizant to retrieve your card. Plus with the credit card I always get a better exchange rate than you'll get at an ATM. I had rather have the US bank on my side fighting a fraudulent charge on a credit charge than the Mexican bank who had given me $200's instead of $500s.
  8. It has always been available at the municipal offices. Last time I asked about a lot they wanted a reason that I needed the info and why I didn't sent an architect. I think the fellow wanted a tip. This has been several years ago and all records were on paper and quite incomplete. Many properties have no owner listed and have never paid taxes. The next time I needed info on a different property I sent an architect.
  9. Call a good GP like Dr. Juan Lastra Berriozabal 766-1740 or mobile 333-676-3515 and he will try to help you decide if you do have symptoms. If he recommends you come in he will instruct you as to a special time when there is no one else in waiting room. His office is at Constitution #75 in Ajijic close to corner with Aldama. Even in the USA if you suspect Covid 19, you call, they don't want you just walking into the waiting room. It is being successfully treated with drugs that are available here. It seems if you go to the hospital the chances of getting out alive decrease.
  10. Yes, they had a wonderful rye bread and often even a pumpernickel. That disappeared when they closed then re-opened. I never knew the brand or where it was baked but would to know. That is the bread I'd like to find again. I ordered from Emma's for delivery today.
  11. Before they closed some months ago, Super Lake was carrying a wonderful loaf of sliced rye bread. Some days just light rye and sometimes a pumpernickel. When the store closed and reopened the bread is no longer available there. Where can I buy a nice sliced rye bread here?
  12. Gate service Francisco 331-227-7621 or Estaban at Puertas Y Sistemas Automaticos 766-4367
  13. An ATV mechanic works on small gasoline motors I believe. I guess I had the Riberas across from Pancho's in mind. Those little towns sort of run together for me. Just look for a shop that works on small engines like lawn mowers and ATVs. It the problem is the electric part of the generator you'll need someone who works on gen sets.
  14. Take it to the gas motor shop in San Antonio on the mountainside of Caraterra. It will have a dozen or so lawn mowers out front. There used to be one in Chapala across from the Soriana on lhe Lateral. I don't know if they are still there. Any lawn mower small engine can do what you are asking.
  15. A few years ago some gringos helped a group of village women east of Chapala start raising Tilapia. They were raising them in tanks to supplement the village families income. Did this endevor survive and does it continue. Anyone know where the Mexico raised Tilapia can be purchased. We checked the frozen filets and they were from China. There also used to be a frog farm near Chapala but they don't seem to have survived.
  16. Tobacco leaf mosaic virus https://www.growweedeasy.com/cannabis-plant-problems/tobacco-mosaic-virus-tmv
  17. We get ibe every year but only for a week or so.
  18. When I am not going to US or have any friends coming down, I just bite the bullet and pay more on Mercado Libre but get free shipping. Last week I bought Zinc and Selenium delivered in two days
  19. Holalola, having rescued many birds I can tell you that either it has broken bones and will not survive or it will be ok. Most likely it is now in shock. Put it in a box with cloth cover or other dark, quiet place and keep it out of drafts. It will either be ok in a few hours or dead. That is standard shock treatment for wild birds.
  20. The sirens are going west past Panteon toward San Juan Cosola
  21. San Antonio Texas reported 192 new cases of covid19 virus on Thursday. The Bexar County health chief says San Antonio is entering second wave of Covid19 virus. https://www.lmtonline.com/news/local/article/Two-new-deaths-reported-San-Antonio-chief-health-15334368.php
  22. Mostly, are you talking about Mexico's hotels will be open on July 1st
  23. Our domestic help at lakeside earn more than teachers and police so the slave wages is just not the case. The actually earn higher wages than 90% of Mexico. If I had to pay the US wage equivalent I simply wouldn't have any help. They won't thank you for causing the jobs to disappear. Actually I would just cut the hours back to what I could afford as would many folks I know. This area thrives because of the cost of living for foreigners. Most home owners simply use the inflation number as a percentage. A raise should be for better work not just attendance. Most workers do not get a COLA in the US.
  24. The problem is that CNA bills a frac for water pumped. The meters on the wells also add the volume when it is just air (which there always it). The residents think they should pay only for the metered water they recieve, The total of all the water metered to each house will be less than the CNA total from reading the well meter. The difference is delivery system (lines) loss and the air measured as water at the well head. There is an air exclusion device that can be added to the well but your managers have to know to have it added. There are always some taking water without it going through the meter. You also have remosos that don't pay the frac for the water but the frac has to pay the CNA bill anyway.
