  1. Every 3 months for 4 years we had to go back and forth to texas to care for our mother. We had 3 dogs, 2 of them were mexican street dogs. In the 17 crossings back and forth we were never once asked for dog papers.....so funny.....We usually stay in matahuala, Las Palmas, but have stayed at many motels and hotels. We tell them we have dogs and will pay a little extra. Weve had good luck, some places say no. The only advice I have is start looking for a place to stay the night at 4:00 because sometimes it might take a little while and you dont want to drive at night. Although at times we had to so we just stayed behind an 18 wheeler to lead the way...lol

  11. Palvela: I sent you a PM. Many many years ago there were no permits or licenses. A man of integrity didnt need them. I understand today it can be important. Our dear friend: Jesus (Chuy) Jiminez 331 048 5343 has the utmost integrity.. Will give you and estimate and stick to it. If you need anything different he will tell you first. Totally built the house next to us. Has done many many projects to finish and add on to our house. Built our aljibe, wall, added on upstairs, tons of plumbing. Built a huge mansion in west ajijic. Does it all and has his license for electricity, plumbing, iron work, construction. Everything. Builds a house from raw land. Family works with him. Comes when he says he will. I recommended him to many, one lady had problems with the current one never returning. She used Chuy and raved about his work, quickness hard work and price. If you dont use him, I hope you find someone good. Saludos
  12. It costs $4.99 US but you can use XOOM and have as much as $2000 US sent from your bank to Elektra. Go in with a copy of your passport, I.D. address, Clave number Xoom gives you and have your money instantly 9:00-9:00 7 days a week. We use it alot if the ATM's are down. If you are a first time user it may take a day to verify your bank but after that the money is always ready immediately and you will receive a text to your phone telling you it is ready. Your bank will not debit it until after you have picked up the money. Then when you pick it up, you will receive a text saying the transaction is complete. You can pick it up at Walmart too but lately they do not have the money so we switched to Elektra. Yes it is cheaper at a ATM but in a pinch, or buying a large purchase, it is great.
  13. Maincoons, thank you so much for the help. Gracias
