    Mexican Food in Lakeside

    I recommend Teocintle on the corner of Constitution and Miguel Blanco in Ajijic. Bright yellow and pink building - hard to miss. Authentic, excellent and served by a lovely Mexican family.

    Christmas Dinner

    If you can get in, GO has a fabulous Christmas lunch - there are three sittings. Ad is in Ojo de Lago. It may be sold out - it is popular...
  3. Gracias everyone! All excellent information. They are starting the trip from Montreal and will take off in early January. They are fairly adventurous folks but would never have thought about the Cdn credit card issues or about gas pumps not taking postal codes.... I will pass this on for sure. Look for their silver Honda van with Quebec license plates and say bonjour/hi! Feewee
  4. Thank you for this RickS - really appreciate you taking the time to share all this great information! I will pass it along to my friends.
  5. Hello Friends are considering driving to Ajijic from Eastern Canada this winter for a visit. Any advice or stories to share about the best place to cross US-Mex border; safest routes through Mexico etc ? They are not moving down here so do not need any of the immigration info. They will however be bringing their dog. Thank you !
  6. Fabulous Females ! They were trail blazers in the '60s and appear to still be trail blazers today ... very cool, thanks for sharing this
  7. Hi Susy I thought you would like to know there is a Cdn woman and her husband who retired to the south side of Lago Chapala and they seem to be loving it ....here is the link to her blog https://casalunademiel.wordpress.com/site-information/
  8. Thank you everyone for your recommendations - I will research them all and share what I learn. Feewee PS: Mary Ann - I am really sorry to hear of your husband's ordeal. My husband is a serial cruiser and I had never considered the risks of cruise boat infections - this one sounds really serious!
  9. Many thanks for information REC - this sounds ideal! I hope your recovery was successful.
  10. Does any one have experience and/or recommendations on in-home care services in Ajijic - preferably someone with formal nursing or elder care training. Things like changing a dressing, helping getting to/from bathroom, light meal preparation. Looking for post-hip surgery assistance in home for 3-6 weeks. The care giver does not need to live in but that would be an option as there is a casita. Thank you!

    Dia de los muertos

    Thank you all for the insights. You are right Liana - Patzcuaro and Oaxaca would have been great ...too late or too far. Does Ajijic do anything? I am with a group of people, some of who are not mobile so Chapala might be too much. I was just hoping there would be something in the Ajijic Plaza. I saw the Thriller event and although it sounds fun, it is really the Mexican traditions that will interest them. Thanks again!
  13. I will be coming to Ajijic over Nov 1, 2 - what can I expect to see or participate in for dia de los muertos?

    Another vote for Jim at Glorioso - very pleasant, great cut....listens to your instructions/needs and also a great conversationalist. I understand the eyebrow thing...me it is the ears !
  15. We drove there from Lake Chapala area - definitely stuck out like unilingual gringos depsite Mx licence plates - we were treated respectfully although with some bemusement and felt quite safe.Recommendation for Villa Victoria in Patzcuaro - wonderful B&B. They also provide off street parking down the road.
