  1. I had understood it that US/Canada coverage can be added as a rider only at renewal time.
  2. Dogs and cats don't need the certificate. https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/pet-travel/by-country/pettravel-mexico
  3. OK, good. I had read elsewhere that the International Health Certificate is no longer needed as of Dec 2019. Probably best to keep the used Flea and Tick prevention container.
  4. There was a time when a local vet had to be called, at great expense, to clear a dog from customs at the Guadalajara airport. Then it was reported that it was a lot easier, just the international pet form. Any updates? Thanks
  5. When I book a Volaris flight, I do it thru my Expedia account.
  6. Alejandro lives on Zaragoza in Ajijic. 2nd door east of Juarez on north side of street. He drives a dark blue pickup. If it is there, he is there. Best go before 8am.

    Used to love that place--meat, salsa, tortillas and beer. Bring your own salad. It is on the south side of the highway and with the new median barriers, you have to travel west until the first place you can cross the highway and proceed back.
  8. This is from the Grumpy Economist: Vaccines and liability Posted: 26 Apr 2021 03:52 PM PDT I learned something from the New York Times lead editorial on Sunday.

You sell a billion units of a brand new drug -- still on emergency use authorization in the US -- to, say, India. 10 people get a rare blood clot that may or may not be due to your vaccine. Local cou
  9. They aren't going to send them to other countries because of liability issues. The drug companies are protected in the US but not outside.
  10. The vaccinations in the US are no cost. To say Mexico has a free market system is a stretch.
  11. On Monday, in the US, anyone over the age of 16 is eligible. With the increase in supply, especially when JNJ is back in the market, combined with decreased demand (much to everyone's chagrin), anyone will be able to get the vaccine. As for "jumping ahead", it is a free market.
  12. Nothing "major". Several minor ones, always rearender from following too close, and a stalled vehicle or two. That would be the longer time.
  13. I have done the drive from Ajijic and best time is 45m and worst is 1hr 10m.
  14. Have you tried the Garden Center in Riberas? Or perhaps Luis at Rainbird?
