  1. Has happened with my Charles Schwab ATM card a number of times. Go mañana
  2. Anyone know f Costco is open today, Easter Sunday?
  3. This beautiful blue eyed beauty is in a too small cage in front of the pet store next to Soriana’s. The only information I could get was that she is from Guadalajara. She is very thin and looks like she recently weaned puppies. Please stop by and see her If you have room to foster or provide a loving home. PM me and I will help with expenses. This is cruel.
  4. This is our normal weather for this time of year. No, LCS does not have a pool. The only public pool I can think of is in Ribera’s. Maybe someone else knows of one near Ajijic.
  5. I don’t think this is a union in the same way we from NOB think of a union. Someone said Thugs...that is more likely. There have been a number of businesses threatened here over the year to pay “protection” money. This sounds more likely.
  6. We have lived here 10 years and have used the Miramontes the entire time. We travel at least 5-7 times a year and have used them as driver for medical procedures in Guadalajara. I have recommended them to many people. They have ALWAYS been reliable. From the many posts here it looks like artsnob is the only one who has had a problem. Perhaps it was a miscommunication since he didn’t give specifics.
  7. If you’re flying just pay for excess baggage. Check with your airline. Volaris to Seattle isn’t all that expensive for excess.
  8. Traderspoc aka Wayne has been doing our taxes for years and has saved us A LOT of money.
  9. Shaw Upgrade Just got an email from Shaw saying I willneed a new dish and receiver to get their channels. Anyone else get this? Would like to hear our local experts chime in.
  10. To me the major advantage is that the new location will be cooler. The village location is so hot from the oven inside that we only had delivery or did pick up. It will be nice to get a hot pizza out of the oven while sitting outside with some elbow room.
  11. If you are referring to the cart...that is Francisco’s and I think he is only open 830am until early afternoon. Always busy
  12. They should do fine in west Ajijic. We love their pizza, but their location is too small and waaaay too hot inside. The new location is great with parking and outdoor seating. They may be loosing some of their walk ins, but many people don’t want to drive into Ajijic. They will have many new customers.
  13. Call or email Gabe Gheda. Very reliable, we have used him for about 3 years and he has been able to fix our issues each time he comes over.....on time. Perfect English spoken etccomputers@gmail.com ‭(376) 765-2538‬
  14. What make and model phone do you have? Great concept.
  15. The name is Los Milagros De Dalila. You can see it on the map along with the macrolibramento. look for the restaurant with a big triangle sign...The Burrito Triangle.
  16. Take the first returno after the Burrito Triangle (cant remember the real name). You will catch the amacrolibramento that way.
  17. When buying a house here and the house does not have a phone line I would make the closing dependent on the house having an active phone line before closing. That way the builder, owner or real estate agent all have a vested interest in getting it done. You won’t have to do the leg work and aggravation. After buying our home without a phone line, I suggested to a new neighbor who was thinking about buying a new built home in our community to do this. It worked.
  18. Getting a phone line has been a problem since before we moved here 8+ years ago. We moved into Los Sabinos and it was the same problem then. Took us 3 weeks as we were a squeaky wheel. Our neighbors who moved in about the same time got a phone line 7 months after moving in. I cannot stress how important due diligence is. I would NEVER advise anyone to buy a home here before renting for at least 6 months to a year. During the time of renting, get out and ask questions. See a lawyer and speak to everyone you can. It should be a serious part time job to learn as much as you can about buying a home here.
  19. Heading out to Petatan tomorrow. Anyone have any idea what time they fish processing plant feeds the pelicans?
  20. Good news for those that travel frequently with their dog or cat. Just more bureaucratic paperwork, but probably worth it. Travel program eases procedures for pets
  21. Which Spencer? Spencer Schulman or Spence McMIllan?
  22. When they don’t give a quote it means they don’t know how or don’t want to do the job
  23. You need to provide your own airline approved kennel. All pet stores sell them. They are made of plastic. If the pet travels without a passenger it needs to go as freight and is very expensive. Volaris charges about $90usd if the dog flies as a passengers baggage.
