  1. Had TechnaAqua build one about 14 years ago and it was fine. Salt quickly lost its appeal when black algae persisted and went to chemicals. I have heard from several people that Rudy is the go to guy now.

    I always take my car to the dealer because I feel them best suited for the job; however, I have known of Felipe’s work for years. He was the go to guy in Armeria, Colima for all the gringos because he did a good job, spoke perfect english, was trained in the US and never screwed anybody.

    Need feedback abt good hotel

    I looked at all the options a few years ago and opted for the posada. I found it perfect, central, great staff and restaurant

    Beach House

    Check out Cuyutlan. 2 1/2 hours. Do a google search for Cuyutlan Properties and contact Mac or Juan. I prefer it to Manzanillo as much more tranquil while the Cities of Manzanillo and Colima are 30 to 40 minutes away.

    Recommendation for basic auto insurance.

    S&S Auto. I was under the impression there are basically 3 insurance companies and the local agents go to them for a price. Qualitas GNP and HDI. I use HDI because in my opinion their overall response time from the scene of the accident to any payout is better than the other two. It is marginally higher in cost then the others usually. So to me I want an agent who I can trust and for that I pick S&S Auto.

    Chaplain Elevation

    This is about the same height as Denver so drinking plenty of water is advocated. But different strokes for different folks!
  7. My goodness CG why so abusive? Referred to was a phone company past black coffee. Past not alongside. And there is! You are the only one saying telmex beside black coffee.

    Peso free fall

    If a month ago it was 20.8 pesos to the us $ and today it is 19.1 then it’s the usd that’s weakening; can’t even begin to think the word tanking to even be in the realm of adjectives.

    I don’t think confrontation is the answer. Online you should be able to easily find a dog repellant. Seems to me nicotine might be an effective detractor.

    Furniture Shops

    Furniture Show in August. I thought this was at the expo center next week but Senior Google tells me its the Enart show held Feb and August in Talaquepaque. The later, as I recall, was short on furniture whereas the expo center had a plethora of it. Your thoughts appreciated.

    More car questions

    Yes! You will need a proof of address locally in your name however. Personally I would, with very few exceptions, NEVER buy a used car in Mexico. You can buy a new March or Kia for under 10K USD. For your personal safety and protection my advice would be for you to buy through S&S Auto!

    Budgeting costs of reconnaissance

    Mischeif you wrote: “. If we were "well off" we wouldn't be looking to live there! .  Angus said the probable truth - you can't embrace the culture, you will be toast and headed north quickly. If the sole purpose to move here is to live cheaply I agree, chances of living happily here is not a likely probability. So come down and if you can’t adapt to the lifestyle consider another country

    Aluminium Windows

    From my experiance I would look for a craftsman with a good reputation. Best price scenario has never worked for me. Too, it depends where you are located for ease of labor. In Ajijic I would check out Las Salvias Aluminio. N/E corner of 5 Febrero and the carretera.
