  1. Assuming you are flying from Gauadalarjara to Mexico City, we found it easier to get our INM paper stamped at the Guadalajara airport before we caught our flight to Mexico City

    If the reply directly answers the question asked by the original poster, why should it matter who responds? It could be a person who has used the services asked about or someone who offers those services.

    Beware Puerta Arroyo

    My understanding is that all new houses have the same issue - it is problem with Telmex, not the developers

    Where to buy handrail for a pool?

    We bought our stainless steel handrail thru our pool maintenance person - Carlos Taylor. You may be able to order thru a local pool supply store.

    Good chiropractor at Lakeside

    For physical therapy, I am seeing Dra Justina Jimenez Lopez, a rehabilitation specialist, and her team located in west Ajijic. The clinic's number is 376 766 5563. Thanks to their efforts, I have avoided shoulder surgery. Everyone speaks english if that is a concern to you.
  11. To share my experience with the company Border Free which was mentioned earlier in the post: I ordered 2 items from Chicos last December - they would shipped to Mexico using Border Free and would charge all duties, shipping costs, etc at the time of the order. One price was shown with all the charges on the screen which I printed a copy off then the price shown changed significantly once I hit the order button but that is another issue. It took approximately 10 days and DHL delivered the items and gave me invoice for $600. I advised shipping had already been paid but was told no pesos no items so I paid. It took almost 4 months to get my $600 pesos back - Chicos said not their issue to call Border Free and Border Free said not their issue to deal with Chicos. And I got my $ back only after getting the name of the executives at Chico and threatening to go to them if I did not get my money in 4 days. There is something to be said about having time on your hands after retirement!!!

    Big jump in internet speed

    Not sure if our situation will help anyone but just in case. Our internet speed was dismal at best for June, July and August. We are tech and Spanish challenged so call in our computer tech guy. He advised we had 10 wireless devices (2 Iphones, 2 Ipads, a laptop, a printer, a smart TV and 3 repeaters) which were causing the TELMEX modem to overheat which impacted our service. The solution - a router which handles the wireless part and all devices are back up to approximately 10 megabits.
