  1. Uber is the Uber app only. My son used Uber from the airport but the driver didn't want to go all the way to Ajijic and not have a fare back. He gave him extra so he did it.
  2. I have written "ask for ID" on the signature line of all my cards. More times that not, the cashier will ask.
  3. Is there a contact number for the hiking club? Have a friend visiting and want to go but need details
  4. Looking for new Shaw TV provider. Have recent box and dish. Anyone out there have room on their account? House is in El Parque.
  5. Yes, they are up in the shopping center by the car wash. Miquel now runs it and it seems much more professional and organized (thank goodness). They are offering more product including computers for sale. He did a quick fix on my iPad for $100 pesos. Excellent service I think.
  6. We are very fortunate to have such a store available to us. If you need something that does not seem to be there, Adriana is happy to get it on her next trip to Guad. She is also honest; if you ask if something is organic or where it is from, she tells you what she knows, not what she thinks you want to hear. Remember to support a business like this as without our loyalty, she will be gone and it's back to Walmart and Superlake.
  7. This is good stuff. I don't have any idea of the sugar or fat content but it tastes light but flavorful. The tiramisu with Irish Baileys is just right. If in doubt, ask to sample but, in my opinion, it's all good, except maybe the bacon.
  8. I like to try to get to the original source when attempting to get the benefits from something I ingest. There are sleep teas I bought at the grain store next to Gossips which has camomille, passion flower and other plant material that should relax you. Of course after you find it, brew it and strain it, you should be tired anyway (lol). If you take calcium, take it in the evening along with magnesium, maybe 500 mg. BTW, Ambien is made by Monsanto I read, beware!
  9. Add me to the list of "no car by choice". I am not here full-time and have rented a car when I had family visiting but basically I do fine walking, the local busses and accepting rides from friends now and then. One of the reasons I chose this area is because it is easy enough to get around without owning a vehicle. There are too many cars here already and dealing with break downs, mordida, and lousy driving conditions is not for me. I get enough gas fumes just walking along the Careterra. People complain about the parking at Superlake, traffic in town but forget they are part of the problem. No car for me until the day comes when walking becomes too difficult.
  10. Mayra Lisset Torres Herrera is an architect and artist. She did interior faux stone paint and tromp d'oleil (sp) mural type painting for me which gets rave reviews. She does sketches first with various options. Very reasonably priced. Speaks English. Mayra Lisset Torres Herrera 331.208.3337.
  11. And Dr Bimbela is excellent. He is a Bd certifed plastic surgeon and does not run an assembly line operation. Takes your concerns into consideration. Dioes the surgery in at the Ajijic Clinic. If need be, you can stay overnight which happened in my case.A year later, I am happy with results.
  12. Wouldn't you rather support enterprising local merchants, especially women, trying to make a living? Adrianna (now I know her name) can be very helpful and will explain the different qualities of chocolate or whatever information you need to know. Apparently honest, as I asked her if something was organic and she said she didn't really know. She could have said yes and I would not have known the difference. She also will bring requests from Guad so when you need that exotic ingredient, she is your go to person. The higher the volume sold, the fresher her products will be. We all win. Yes, I'm a fan.
  13. I'm not so sure about bottled water. Does anyone have a source for delivery of spring water?
