  1. Jorge was mentioned above and I have used him for a couple of difficult issues and can't recommend him highly enough. Trained in Spain and Mexico and has always exceeded my expectations. He definitely knows anatomy and works closely with a number of doctors including some of the best orthopedist in the area. In one case recently I was not responding as expected to deep therapeutic massage. After a couple of sessions he said that there was nothing more that he could do but made very specific recommendations and was very clear about what information I should share with the doctor he recommended - one of the orthopedist mentioned above. Great outcome and I personally wouldn't consider anyone else for something beyond just a simple spa type massage. https://www.ulloapt.com/
  2. I bought this from Amazon in late 2018. Provides LOTS of ways to connect it to pretty much any TV. And then it provides a Bluetooth connection so you can use essentially any Bluetooth headphones, earbuds, speakers, etc. Very easy to set up and use. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077MXFJGQ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  3. I have had treatment here for some serious and truly life threatening issues. Truly outstanding experiences in all cases. Could not ask for better care. Been here almost 15 years.
  4. I strongly recommend Jorge Ollua. I have been to him several times over the years for different issues and have been very satisfied every time. My wife also did PT with him after knee replacement surgery. He works closely with several of the best orthopedist in the area. From my experience he is the best around. Not the cheapest but worth every centavo. https://www.ulloapt.com/
  5. I highly recommend Winston at Lake Chapala Moving. https://www.lakechapalamoving.com/who_we_are.html
  6. A couple of recommendations - Dr. Alejandro Rodriguez - I had a serious skin cancer surgery (8.5 hours) and he closed the extensive incisions on my face. Absolutely no visible scars. Perfect English. Justo Siera 2447 Guadalajara, Jalisco 44600 (333) 615-9259 Dr. Manuel Jiménez del Toro - I had him remove another skin cancer on the top of my head. Very happy with the results. Perfect English. I met with him initially at Maskaras Clinic before the new hospital opened. He may still be coming to Lakeside for consultations. dralejandro@plasmacirujanos.com (333) 615-9259 or (333) 630-0266

    Viva Mexico in San Juan Cosala has Chiles en Nogada on their regular menu year round.
  8. Interesting. We go there close to once a week and have never had a bad meal there. Different strokes for different folks.
  9. I have used this place in Riberas - Confort Climas. The address is 90 Hidalgo which is the highway from Ajijic to Chapala. It is on the lakeside/south of the highway as you go towards Chapala. On the right just before you get to Telecable/Izzy/Wizz or whatever it is called today. If you get to Mom's you have gone too far. Not sure about English in the store but I think the young lady in the store may speak English although I spoke Spanish with her. One of the guys that came to my house to do services speaks perfect English. I "think" this is the phone number - 33 1180 8581 although I have just gone into the store to make an appointment. https://www.google.com/maps/place/CONFORT+climas/@20.2927889,-103.2184142,3a,75y,202.66h,94.43t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sOwnBMFpdSAb5oQixiXOT9Q!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo1.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DOwnBMFpdSAb5oQixiXOT9Q%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dsearch.TACTILE.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D211%26h%3D120%26yaw%3D224.7911%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i13312!8i6656!4m5!3m4!1s0x842f40d7b69f6aeb:0x6c005eaafc955e91!8m2!3d20.292704!4d-103.2184752 I
  10. Each State has its own rules regarding insurance - specifically the minimum required liability insurance. If you have a rider on your Mexican insurance policy for U.S. liability coverage you should be fine. Each State "might" have specific rules on how long you can use your Mexican car but probably not a limit that will affect you. If you are going to be in the U.S. for many months it might be worth checking to be sure. For a shorter trip I wouldn't worry about it.
  11. Don't know the name or phone number but we have used a place on Colon one block above the carratera - corner of Felipe Angeles. We have had him repair a microwave and come to the house to repair our washing machine and the refrigerator in the casita. Great service and completely satisfied with the work and the price.
  12. Highly recommend Winston a Lake Chapala Moving. http://www.lakechapalamoving.com/
  13. My last comment on all this is that calling the local office of any of the companies being discussed here and asking the person that answers about the company's business plan, contract/subcontract arrangements and other similar details is not likely to provide the accurate, definitive, detailed information folks are looking for. Sort of like calling a U.S. company's local office and asking the receptionist about strategy, subcontracts, etc. Just my opinion. I'm a happy Ilox customer so I'll bow out.
  14. A guy was here literally 10 minutes ago in a vehicle with iFibra logos all over it. He once again had Ilox paperwork and was here to finish up something extra that I asked for in my Ilox setup. Same guy has been here three times now including the initial Ilox installation. The other two visits were because I asked for and paid for something extra after the initial installation. Thanks CG. Corrected Ted to Tom (I used to work with a guy named Ted Kessler). With all the work Tom has done for all of us I could at least get his name right (haha).
  15. When you apply at an embassy in your home country you are a Refugee - different legal definition and process. When you apply for asylum from within the U.S. or at a point of entree you are an asylee - different legal definition and process. https://immigrationforum.org/article/fact-sheet-u-s-asylum-process/ https://www.rescue.org/article/it-legal-cross-us-border-seek-asylum Not to go off down another bunny trail but the process to gain legal entry from the U.S. into Mexico is ridiculously easy compared to legal entry from Mexico into the U.S.
