  1. Definitely one of our go-to restaurants. Never a bad experience. 😊
  2. Arjay, Check out Purely CBD. www.purelycbdmexico.com They sell a great product that is not $3500, but $1400 MXN & they ship from La Paz.
  3. I was in Ilox last week & told it would be 3-5 months. And, I have their fiber on my street & their distribution box on a pole outside my house. Glad I only prepaid 1 month. Ilox is like every other utility in Mexico. Customer service is a very low priority.
  4. Looks like I have my great 4G service back again.
  5. I've noticed over the last few days very poor Tel Cel signal on San Luis in Riberas. I've always very good service until recently. Always 4G(LTE). This sucks.
  6. Question re:driving out of the country at Nogales, MX with a permanente. Is immigration at KM 21. or, are they right at the border where Aduana is? Would like to check out of the country legally so there are no issues when returning. Gracias.
  7. 10 of us had dinner at Tabarka last night. In one word......dismal. Reservations were for 6 PM. So, not late.We were told before putting in our orders there was no chicken and only one piece of Dorado. About 10-15 mins. after putting in our orders, we were told there was no pasta, after ordering 3 pasta dishes. While ordering we were told that the paella and risotto were for a minimum of 2 people at $125 each. At the bottom of the menu it does tell you that in quite small print. So, some of us did order the paella, which was fairly good. Two people had the risotto, which was horrible. More like a fish soup. Don't think they even used arborio rice. They say to allow 30 mins. for the paella. But, it was more like an hour. Two people had the sea bass that was pretty good. Two of us ordered calamari appies at the same time. One arrived fairly quick. The other arrived about 30 mins. later. Both were not good. Very rubbery. One of our party ordered a steak, which was pretty good. But he was finished his meal long before any of the rest of us rec'd our orders. Needless to say, most of us will not be going back. We used to go to Tabarka when they were on the west side of Ajijic. And, always had a great meal. We did not see David last night. So, assume he was not there. If they keep this up, they'll be closed up like so many other restaurants have done Lakeside. Consistency is the key.
  8. Sorry, I should have specified engine oil. Don't think they'd want that. Thanks just the same.
  9. Definitely Ron Young. A little more expensive. But worth the price. He's the only "mechanic" that could adjust the carburetor on our Vocho.
  10. Does anyone know where I can dispose of used engine oil? Thanks.
  11. Update May.27, 2017....Just had my car done in Chapala. Cost is now $400. It is a joke, of course. All they do is stick a sniffer in the tailpipe & voila, you pass. They don't even check to see if your CHECK ENGINE LIGHT is on. IMHO, it's just a money grab. But, better than being hassled by the local cops.

  13. We just had Armondo do some painting for us. WOW!!! Clean & tidy. Very professional. We highly recommend him. 331-447-2451.
  14. I was just at Walmart & noticed the Bancomer ATM is GONE. Anyone know anything about it?
  15. Thanks CG. Gualberto & his father, Carlos just left here after doing a minor repair on our DW(plugged inlet filter) Very professional & obviously knew what they were doing. Would highly recommend them.
  16. We visited Armando's the other night after not eating there for quite awhile. As usual, our experience was wonderful. As far as I'm concerned his steaks & caesar salad are the best in town. Not to mention his wonderful desserts. I think a lot of us forget about the truly great eating establishments lakeside. If you've never been there, give him a try. Wonderful food & great service with everything prepared table-side. https://www.google.com.mx/maps/place/Armando's+Hideaway/@20.3005397,-103.2730528,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x675b1cf175232350!8m2!3d20.3005397!4d-103.2730528
  17. Pablo's Garage in West Ajijic!!! I would be extremely desperate to take my Nissan to a dealer. Just sayin'.
  18. Posted on Facebook, On the Road in Mexico Just passing it on. If you are importing your vehicle because you have permanent residency, DON'T use Grupo Cuevas. We did. It was an unpleasant process and cost a fortune. Then, when we got to Nayarit to get our plates, we found that the fractura for our truck was produced years ago and was for a red Silverado. We have a grey Silverado. Wrong fractura. Beside that, there was no fractura or ownership document with our trailer papers at all! So now, we have to go to a notario to get bonded. And, we found stapled to our papers the fractura from someone else's 4 wheeler. That poor soul is most likely in some hell or limbo without it. Now what? I don't know whether it's all a mistake, incompetence or fraud. Most likely a bit of all. Are we even in the system after using a "reputable" import company and paying over $2400 CASH!
  19. Yes, the toilets drains are separated from the house drains. Very good system.
  20. We just purchased a home in Upper Riberas(north of the Carretera) My Infinitum sucks. But, other than that, all is good. Quiet area, good water & good septic system. 5 mins. to Chapala & 5 mins. to Wal Mart. This is not an area that we were looking in. But happy that we bought here. The previous owner installed 2 tanks. One is for black water & completely sealed except for a line that takes the liquid off the top & flows into the second gray water tank. They built the house 7 years ago & had the black water tank pumped once in 2011. there was only a few inches of crud to pump out. There is never any odor.
