  1. http://www.bestmexicomovers.com/ May I suggest this local link could save you a lot of heartache and confusion.
  2. El Toro, May I suggest that there are several Spanish language schools in Morelia, Michoacan, known for immersion language learning with optional private accommodation. The best one appears to be: http://www.baden-powell.com/home; but also high on the list: http://spanishabroad.com/morelia-spanish-school/ Morelia is a lovely Colonial town in the state of Michoacan, a.k.a., the heart and soul of Mexico. With an emphasis on government sponsored cultural events is indicative of the general level of education. The information provided in the latter also notes similar affiliated schools in Guadalajara (if he wanted to be located closer to you) as well as numerous other cities and towns. Personally, I would find Guadalajara too overwhelming whereas Morelia is more intimate, walkable and easier to discover. From those two options your friend could have a look at both websites to get an idea of style and course content. Of course there are plenty other options he could research simply by Googling "Spanish Schools in Mexico" to have a broader scope. I trust this may be helpful.
  3. You will not find such a window. It will have to be custom-made and cut to your specs.
  4. Hi. I love natural stone floors and have experience in laying stone floors in shower/bath. All you need is a good albañil (stone mason). I really like the rustic look and feel on the feet. On account of a recent leak in the area outside of stone, resulted in a sizeable hole the area of vanity and claw tub was natural barro tile. Instead of trying to match the type of tile, I plan on tearing up the tilework and laying the entire bathroom with natural stone, as you describe. This is not conventional but a preference. as it is easy to care for, and the fact that natural barro does not like humidity and does take some maintenance. If you meant the pebble type, I can send you photos.
  5. Yes, there is an established well-known bonsai specialist in Chapala. https://www.facebook.com/people/Bonsai-Chapala-Cesar-Alfonso-Mendoza/100007763327609
  6. A few metres before the pedestrian overpass.
  7. After posting that tidbit of information, I realized the poster was asking about obtaining a new (first time) Mexican Driver License. In that case, the info will only be useful to those up for Renewal to take advantage of the convenience as well as saving quite a few pesos for a facilitator.
  8. Dear Grateful, You are in luck. It happens now and then that a service comes into CHAPALA - but we never know when! Pity I am missing this rare opportunity as I had renewed mine in Tlaquepaque two weeks ago - and paid a facilitator. I assume you have the list of docs and photocopies required. You can do this yourself. Seniors have priority in the queue -- just establish that as you arrive. Presidencia Antigua is the ochre colour historical building on the corner at the main traffic lights as you enter Chapala.

  9. Once was enough. If the chef is from Rome, one would expect a master at pasta and sauces. Wife is Mexican from Guadalajara. The kid was an annoyance rudely asking, "do you know what you want?" before I've had a chance to read the menu. Chile sauce on an Italian table?? Furthermore, a glass of Pinot Grigio at a whopping 80 mxp. whilst it is 60 mxp. at most establishments that carry that particular mark. That is an enormous mark-up.
  10. You don't have to go to Guadalajara. There are plenty of shops in Chapala that specialize in those dresses. On Degollado, just off Fr. Madero you'll see plenty of confections gracing the street... and there are more like it. Also, Terry's Tianguis consignment shop on Hidalgo coming into Chapala, left hand side, has a huge selection of fancy confections as well. Only worn once - a very good buy!
  11. There are two locations for glass specialists side by side on the carretera, Ajijic. One is called ViLuMa. https://www.facebook.com/Vidrieria-Viluma-1530700720521646/
  12. For all the singing praises in exalt of Luis Miramontes, booked well in advance, he forgot all about me - and I live in his Chapala neighbourhood!!! Goes without saying, never again for the stress.
  13. Dear CCW, It is pathetic you are on your own to discover the town of Chapala. Chapala holds many attractive features unbeknownst to recent arrivals which for some reason or another are not voluntarily offered as an optional place to reside. Please, do not let that deter you. The promoters of Ajijic are wired within a radius of a goldfish bowl.. Unfortunately, that does not not extend beyond certain parameters to see another world. I would be willing to spend an afternoon with you to become acquainted with Chapala. Under construction, some roads are not accessible at this point in time however, it is still manageable to see much beyond the inconvenience.

    Coronitas are available at La Avenida in Chapala. Love the size. Drive just past Pemex, stay in the left lane and you will see La Avenida in front of you as you make the turn. Big Corona signage.
  15. There is a product called "Quita Gota". Found wherever auto cleaning products are sold.
