  1. Heavens Robo if you’re used to uber elswhere use it at the Guadalajara airport.   Only problem you’re likely to encounter is the driver doesn’t speak english and/or you can’t find where to await the driver.  I have never had a problem and have used Uber out of airport many times and never waited more than 8 minutes.   I do not use it to GO to the airport at 4:30 in the morning

    We don't usually tip a taxi, do the uber people expect one?

    Aye Angus but you'll pay a thousand euros for that cute wee skirt on your avatar, so let's just say you're discriminating, no cheap!   But I'd be please to tip one with ye on Robbie's birthday, or Rabbi if ye prefer!

    Where and what months is it good to see them laying their eggs? Thanks

    While the lay eggs most frequently now through October the Cuyutlan Turtle Sanctuary, el tortugario, is were they can bee seen and you can assist with releasing the little ones into the sea.    The tortugario staff can be found patrolling the beaches at nite, the time the turtles come onto the beach to lay eggs, collecting the eggs to prevent poachers.  They bring them back to the facility, which you can visit, and hatch them out.   You can also hire a boat at the Tortugario to take you onto the lagoon and through the mangrove swamp.   Enjoy a sunset at one of the many beach restaurants.   Hotels in Cuyutlan, are not meant for the gringo palette but for a nite should be fine.  At most a 3 hour drive from Ajijic.

  4. I think you need, as agent, someone in Baja.  It is, I feel, an expensive process for the buyer.    Buyer needs to ensure the vehicle has no fees owing in Jalisco.  Turns in the plates.  Then he needs to buy new plates and register the car in Baja.  The time factor in the latter is a day in your life of waiting.   Luck!

  5. Would you not be better to look stateside?   If I understand you, your looking for a device your dog wears on a collar.  Works like find my phone on ipad.   Obviously the dog needs to wear a collar constantly with the unit on.  I believe Garmin makes one as do a couple of others.  All of which you can readily find on google.

    if that's not what your looking for I don't understand what you want.  

  6. Phil you might want to locate a teeter hang up inversion at a Martes location in Guadalajara.   I am positive google research will show them to be best, albeit a tad more costly.   The sales clerk will, I'm certain, be able to hook you up and invert you.   Frankly 'tho I'm not sure one try will give you sufficient feedback.   I think it's a buy and try situation in which only time will tell.  Ergo, an intensive google search on benefits may be your deciding factor.

  7. SAS are serious shoes for professionals on their feet all day and often on cement for several hours.  I've used them for about 10 years under the latter conditions and, while not the most attractive, without question.   They are not a widely known shoe except maybe among nurses on their feet all day.   I combine mine with a good orthopedic insert custom made and probably more expensive then the shoe. When comfort is essential I've never found anything better.   SAS - San Antonio Shoes, hand made in San Antonio Texas, give them a google search, you'll be glad you did!
