  1. $1000.00 USD/month during the high season of December - February is not high. for a year long lease yes …..
  2. Our fridge's ice maker also uses the household water which has gone through the UV, sediment and Charcoal filters ….
  3. We are flying from Guadalajara through Mexico City to Toronto. We have our Temporary Visas. Do we go to the immigration kiosk at the Guadalajara Airport or do we go to the immigration office at the Mexico City Airport. If it's in the Mexico City Airport - where is the kiosk?
  4. haven't been on this page for a couple of days, interesting twist on my comment when I said "canned" I should have said "processed". At our stores back in Canada the aisles holding canned/processed food have been reduced …. canned soups, vegetables/fruit and things like beefaroni have been reduced, there use to be 30-40 types of Campbells soup and there now may be 15, there are more dried soups like Knorrs….. they take up a lot less space on the shelves. The huge growth that I see in packaged things is the plastic coffee pods ..
  5. The selection of Campbell's soup in Canada has decreased too. People aren't buying "canned" goods
  6. Has everyone put a complaint on the Facebook Page ? a very good public place to complain !
  7. With the Canadian Federal Election less than 40 days away you can register to vote by mail. You'll need to figure out how to get the kit here in time, or have it delivered to the Canadian Consulate in Guadalajara. Here are the instructions https://www.elections.ca/content2.aspx?section=svr&dir=app&document=page-f&lang=e
  8. We painted the exterior wall, gate, etc - the one on the street of our place what we call "Ajijic Dust" colour … it really doesn't show the dust. It's very neutral, but always looks fresh. We have neighbours who painted the same wall a bright colour with black gates/doors and it always looks dusty and a bit neglected . If I was living in the house full time and I could dust it daily I might paint it a brighter colour, …
  9. Make sure that they know the rules in Jaliso (posted on this web site) before they take to the roads.
  10. Location, location, location … In the small town I live in Canada we put our skate park behind the police station …. we don't seem to have the graffiti problem , the skate park is well used, and the kids are even pretty good about trash. We're thinking of putting in a water station so that they can refill their water bottles rather than using single use plastic bottles.
  11. Saw a notice that the Ajijic recycle pick up by zone starts February 18th. We're between Revolution and Colon so will have recycling on Mondays ….
  12. I read on a Facebook page that the truck that they use for recycling has broken down and will take a day or two to be repaired....
  13. I contacted the Canadian Government - and NO a Canadian who still is considered a resident of Canada (regardless of their Mexican status) can not drive a Mexican manufactured and plated car in Canada. Here's the email trail - start at the bottom. Even if the vehicle was manufactured in the U.S. you have 30 days to import it into Canada and transfer the plates, etc. to which ever province you're in …. You may not get stopped at the border, but if you're ever in an accident, you aren't insured because you're illegally driving the vehicle. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ From: Motor Vehicle Safety / Securité des véhicules automobiles [mailto:MVS-SA@tc.gc.ca] Sent: January 31, 2018 10:10 AM Subject: RE: Canadian driving Mexican plated car in Ontario Unfortunately no, as Canadian citizens it would not be possible to enter with the vehicle into Canada. Thank you, Anita L. Information Centre/Centre d'information Transport(s) Canada Motor Vehicle Safety/Sécurité des véhicules automobiles 1-800-333-0371 or (613) 998-8616 MVS-SA@tc.gc.ca From: Sent: Tuesday, January 30, 2018 2:58 PM To: Motor Vehicle Safety / Securité des véhicules automobiles <MVS-SA@tc.gc.ca> Subject: RE: Canadian driving Mexican plated car in Ontario Hi, We were not thinking of leaving the car in Canada or changing the registration on the car bought in Mexico. We would like to leave it registered as a Mexican car and just drive it in Ontario for 7 months a year. As Canadian residents is this possible ? From: Motor Vehicle Safety / Securité des véhicules automobiles [mailto:MVS-SA@tc.gc.ca] Sent: January 30, 2018 2:09 PM Subject: RE: Canadian driving Mexican plated car in Ontario Importation - Vehicles less than 15 years of age and bus manufactured before January 1, 1971 purchased in countries "other than the United States Thank you for contacting Transport Canada. Buses manufactured before January 1, 1971 purchased in countries "other than the United States" are not admissible. The information below will explain the limitations. Vehicles including buses manufactured for sale in countries other than Canada and the United States, do not comply with the requirements of the Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Act, CANNOT be altered to comply and thus CANNOT be imported into Canada. That is because the Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Act and Regulations require that all vehicles and buses imported into Canada must comply, at the time of importation, with the Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standards in effect on the date the vehicle was manufactured. Therefore, the vehicle you are describing was sold in another country, hence certified by the manufacturers to standards of the country where it was sold. The vehicle was never certified by the manufacturer to Canadian standards at the time of assembly. Exceptions to the import restrictions from countries other than the United States When Canada Border Services Agency requirements are met, the following circumstances allow people to import vehicles purchased in a country other than the United States: the vehicle is a regulated class of vehicle fifteen (15) years old or older as determined by the month and year the vehicle was manufactured. the vehicle is a bus manufactured before January 1, 1971. the vehicle does not belong to a regulated class of vehicle under the MVSA. the vehicle meets all MVSA requirements, and was acquired NEW abroad via a manufacturer’s foreign buyer program for Canadians abroad (proof of compliance is required). the vehicle meets all United States requirements and acquired NEW abroad via a manufacturer’s foreign buyer program for North-American buyers abroad (additional restrictions apply). the vehicle is a returning Canadian compliant vehicle originally owned in Canada (proof of compliance is required). the vehicle is a returning United States compliant vehicle originally owned in the U.S. (additional restrictions apply). To summarize, when a vehicle or bus is sold in a foreign market other than the United States, it's assembled to specific standards for that market. This creates an automatic exclusion for importation into Canada because these standards at the time of assembly are not Canadian or U.S. compliant, and there are no provisions in the law that allows for these vehicles to be modified to meet our standards.

I can only find information on temporary or visitors driving a foreign plated car or a Canadian driving a US rented car in Canada, There is nothing specific about a Canadian Resident driving a foreign plated car.

  14. they do weed out "fake accounts" so if you haven't used your facebook page much, have no friends, etc. or don't seem to have any relationship to the Lakeside area they may not accept you. I recommend that you post a couple of photos of Lakeside only to your friends (even if you only have a couple).
