    Need feedback abt good hotel

    Positive vote for Nueva Posada!! Stayed there when I first arrived...LOVED it!
  2. BIG shout-out to Robert's body work and painting shop in Riberas! After TWO ''hit-and-runs,'' I needed body work completed on both sides my 2016 Cross Fox. Driver's side had extensive damage to the quarter panel, with deep scratches all the way down the length of the car. Passenger's side rear door was badly damaged in a previous hit and run. My car was beginning to look like it had been through a war zone. Time for repairs! I wish I had taken before and after pictures, but I didn't. ( I visited four repair shops Lakeside for estimates.The estimates I received for the exact same repair work to both sides of my car ranged from 28,000 pesos to 34,000 pesos. I had all the work completed at Robert's for less than HALF the lowest estimate. I picked up my car on Saturday, and am absolutely thrilled with the expert repairs and painting. If you need body work done, tuck this business card away. Next time I back into a light pole (yeah, a regular thing in my spatially challenged life) they'll get my business.

    Start your engines, Ikea is coming.

    SERIOUSLY!? WHY would you say that!? They're ENTERING the Mexican market. If they want to do well here, I'm sure their first store will be a Mexican flagship. Having said that, I recognize that their move here is tremendously controversial. I will continue to support local artisans and furniture producers...BUT...I can also see the value of mass production of less expensive alternatives...a double edged sword, for sure. Ummm...and with regards to YOUR comment ''Tiny,'' I have shopped at Ikea in Canada MANY times over many years. Have been HAPPY with so MANY Ikea products...particularly linens etc. I believe that Ikea does NOT send their ''rejects'' to Canada. Your comment is SO not humorous...on SO MANY levels...but glad that you thought that it might be. You like controversy .eh?

    Yes of COURSE she plans to consult with professionals here in Mexico. I am simply asking for input from so many of the knowledgeable folks here.

    She's worried because she found THIS on the Price Waterhouse website '' From Price Waterhouse website: " Mexico Map Resident individuals are subject to Mexican income tax on their worldwide income, regardless of their nationality. Non-residents, including Mexican citizens who can prove residence for tax purposes in a foreign country, are taxed only on their Mexican-source income."

    A question from a friend considering relocating here from South Africa, if folks work online for businesses outside Mexico, are they required to pay taxes IN Mexico? And pensions from outside Mexico...social security etc...no taxation on those if she lives in Mexico, correct? Yes, she will seek legal advice here as well, just thought I'd post this for her first. Thanks.
  11. Do you know of any local contacts who organize the purchase/donation of school uniforms for children? Thanks for any advice.
  12. This post is more than two years old! I wonder if the OP is still reading responses. 😉
  13. For folks who live locally, we HAPPILY pay 250 to 300 pesos per day for ''in-residence'' house sitting...AND consider that to be money very WELL spent!

    Where to donate nice eyeglass frames?

    I donate all my previously used frames to Dr Pinto in Riberas, who helps women in prisons who could not otherwise afford eyeglasses.
