  1. Another HUGE vote for Luzma. She helped me with this (she can translate all questions for you - but you must take the test. It is all multiple choice). Getting my renewal license took less than 10 minutes in Tlaquepaque. She helped me with immigration permanente (I was quoted 1600 USD and give wrong info from a lawyer - such as saying I needed to reprove financials (NOT!), photos, and she also translated marketing materials for me into Spanish ( a 6 page brochure) at a very, very reasonable fee. Her rates are superb and she is a delightful person to ride with in the car. She follows up with a synopsis in writing of anything you need to do or get in order to do whatever it is you need to do.
  2. Yes, you can pick and choose. They also have a petroglyph park. It is a fun day and the people that own offer a variety of packages or you can opt for just a zip line or just the waterfall. They have a restaurant as well. You can also venture into Mazamitla to the big hotel and rent horses (easy ride) down to the waterfall ... it is beautiful.
  3. Gracias! I shall try to locate a passenger dummy. Francine
  4. Where do I get a mannequin like you are describing? Thanks Cookie.
  5. I was at Bancomer today - getting a copy of my latest statement for immigration. Unfortunately... despite giving my passport and my preferred customer card - when I looked at the documents they were from someone else's account. And there it was in black and white ... all the personal financial details of someone named Jan. The bank manager asked me to be sure it was not my account (I already was as the name was different) but I obliged and read through the first few lines of her statement - the first being a Netflix charge - which I assured the bank was not mine as I don't have it deducted from my Mexico acct. Now I know Jan and Fran sound alike but honestly ... he never even looked - just printed it out and handed me her statement and it was up to me to spot the error. VERY SCARY. Tomorrow I will see about opening up a Santander Acct ... I no longer have any kind of faith in Bancomer. This was way, way, too easy to get my hands on someone else's financial records. So Jan, if you happen to get Fran's info next time you are at the bank ... let's swap. I am assuming our account numbers are very, very similar baring one mistyped number or so.
  6. Sue Garn: sent you a personal message through messenger feature on your account.
  7. I was flying in country not out so perhaps reason for eXtra bag being such a great deal at 100 pesoz.
  8. Flew Volaris PV to Cancun at a great price last week. On time. One bag free - second bag was 100 pesos NOT $39.95 as other poster posted. Flying them back to PV tomorrow. I had a great flight. Go for it!
  9. I fly 8 to 10 times a year for work and have never had a problem taking care of everything in Guad. IMS in Mexico City is a challenge to find so agree with other poster. Make it easy on yourself and enjoy your flight!
  10. I'm in San Francisco - San Pancho in Nayarit for 10 weeks. It is definitely a young and young at heart environment. Went to a fundraiser for the 10th anniversary of the local Montessori School here last night and the mix at the school is 50/50 (gringo kids/mexi kids). I talked to some really young parents - most of whom are working online or locally running a surf school and various businesses. Decided over the past 6 weeks that the town has more strollers than walkers and the age range is really spread out. I found lakeside was getting there in terms of a mix of all people of all ages and if Nayarit is any indication, more will be on their way. Met a young family heading to lakeside to "check it out." And a couple in their 70's taking the bus today to "check it out." Also the PV youth orchestra performed at the fundraiser and that group was also a strong 50/50 mix of kids from all over the area. Assuming they have fairly young parents. They were fantastic by the way! Onward to as much diversity as possible down the road for lakeside. It will be totally win/win. And who knows ... maybe someone will need to start a Montessori school lakeside.
  11. I'm with you Camille. Had to escape the cold which started in November. I feel like a Mexican snow bird with the migration here for a couple of months. No more space heaters!
  12. Just sent it but it says blocked - if you can give me your email I will send it to you that way. Let me know if you got it. F.
  13. Sent you a PM - I purchased from a 3 rd generation factory in Tonala
  14. It works! Just got rid of my fruit bats - they moved on quickly! Be sure to power wash your tiles if you can. My neighbor below me used it as well as once the bats left my house - they moved downhill to her roof. Good luck.
