  1. Thanks to all for the assistance provided here. Muchas gracias!
  2. Two more minor Toll Tag questions: 1. How do you get your receipt or do you not need it? 2. Is there a front and back of the Portatil tag? Which side should face forward if any?
  3. We came primarily for the weather and walk everywhere life style. We view our presence here as a win win given the obvious higher standard of living most everyone in this community enjoys. To some degree that benefit is also a byproduct of the popularity of this area with middle and upper class Tapatios, whose presence also creates business opportunities and jobs for locals. I don't think our Mexican workers or businesses view themselves as being on a plantation any more that we do. I've visited enough places in Mexico that doesn't have the economic benefits of this area to see what th
  4. Another related question. How do you use the tag? Hold it up at the entry to the toll booth marked for electronic? Fasten it using the sticky tabs and holder to your windshield? I am told thing thing is location sensitive.
  5. Any idea what time of day? Last Friday it was in the morning.
  6. Yes. Notario does it. I remember it being pretty expensive.
  7. Was able to get 20K pesos out of CI Banco this morning because I got there just after they filled the machine. Lot of good suggestions here, provide a great back up. Thank you all very mcuh.
  8. I got 20,000 out of CI Banco this morning. They had just refilled the machine.
  9. So after five and a half months the local death rate is 0.0125% and the official local infection rate is 0.1525 percent assuming a population of 40,000. The Tapatios have been back in town for nearly two months. There are no sanitary check points.
  10. If it was made and bought in Mexico there should be an original Factura. If not, good luck.
  11. Yeah, that is the problem I'm finding. CI Banco ATM doesn't seem to be working much at all these days.
  12. https://www.vallartadaily.com/mexico-to-keep-us-border-closed-to-non-essential-travel/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+VallartaDaily+(Headline+News+from+Puerto+Vallarta) Not sure exactly what this means. If we have Permanentes, would we not be let back in? I know the U.S. admits citizens with passports going in the other direction.
  13. There has been a massive increase in the number of cars in Jalisco. That is what you are seeing. Has little to do with the expat population. Look at the license plates.
  14. I think you almost have to come visit to get an overall view of the changes since your last visit. We arrived here in 2008. Much, much more development and traffic than at that time. Shopping, finding stuff much improved. Better medical facilities. Scads of restaurants. Much improved movie theaters. It is definitely different.
  15. Where is that one? Thanks everyone for the great help here!
  16. Are you withdrawing from a MultiVa account? I want to use a U.S. debit card. I think my Actinver debit card will give me access to that machine but once in I want to use my Capital One Debit card. Is that possible?
  17. OK well I don't have time to do that right now. I need to get some road cash over the next week and a half.
  18. It is getting more and more difficult to find the CI Banco ATM operating and with money in it. It used to be that Tu, Wed, Th were pretty good probability but that seems to have gone by the wayside. Went by there at 10AM, not working, noon, not working. Understanding that other ATMs will charge more, what are the most reliable options at this point? Bancomer? Banamex? Scotia? Other? Possible to use a U.S. Debit card at Intercam and get peso cash at a decent rate? Looking to find out how others are managing this problem with CI Banco. Gracias!
  19. You do know one puts out a story and the rest pick it up, yes? No one really bothers to check, they are like a herd. There's no indication this is anything other than something being batted around the bureaucracy. Why don't you wait and see if it goes any further? I'm betting not. Sure hope not, we're headed NOB by car in a couple weeks.
