  1. If you are going from temporal to permanente: I went on Thursday, June 4 to the office in Chapala. There was only one other person there. All my papers were in order, she took them and told me I would be contacted in 1-2 weeks (mas o menos) for fingerprints. Usually only one week from fingerprints to new card. But now, who knows. Note: Interesting that I have been on this board since before I moved here 4 years ago and am still considered a 'newbie'.
  2. I went to the immigration office in Chapala on Thursday, June 4th at about 10:30. It was open, only one other person there. Had to wait outside and they let one person (couple) in at a time. I was able to submit my application to go from Temporal to Permanente. No problem.
  3. If you can find alcohol anywhere.
  4. Get your head out of the sand and realize this is not overblown hype. Sitting next to someone at Open Circle who has been exposed to the virus coming from US, UK, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, and many other countries is not particularly safe. It can be spread with no symptoms.
  5. This is about more than stocking up on toilet paper. This article is not hype, nor is it "stupid and overblown". Read it if you are interested in a very clear, intelligent, non-hype statistical evaluation of the pandemic and how various countries have responded successfully and what in all probability will happen in the coming weeks. The title of the article is "Coronavirus: Why you must act now"- by Tomas Pueyo https://medium.com/@tomaspueyo/coronavirus-act-today-or-people-will-die-f4d3d9cd99ca In Lakeside, with a large number of ex-pats traveling frequently out of the country, there is a higher risk than perhaps other parts of Mexico. The recommendation for anyone arriving here from a country which has incidence of this virus is to self-quarantine for 14 days. This can significantly restrict the spread of the virus in this country. The virus can be spread before there are any symptoms. Ignoring the significance of this is a danger to everyone.

  7. Thanks everyone! I knew I could count on good advice here.
  8. I said there is a lack of good Mexican food in Ajijic because the majority of the many restaurants here cater to diners from NOB. This is not my favorite food. I love Teocintle before rush hour, after which when one needs a reservation or earplugs. Memo is also one of my favorites. Chile Verde is not open in the evenings last I checked. Bad reviews of El Sombrero. I was specifically asking for recommendations in Chapala. Thank you RVGringo.
  9. Hello gastro experts. Any recommendations for good restaurants in Chapala, preferably Mexican cuisine, there being a lack of these in Ajijic.
  10. But yes, an hour is probably cutting a bit close. Maybe possible, but any little delay would make it tense
  11. There is an immigration booth right near the gates for departure. It really didn't take much time. Be careful asking for info. Everyone will tell you something different. The first time I did it I was walking all over the *#&^$airport. Finally found someone and the immigration booth was right near the boarding gates. Sorry I don't remember which gates, but they were where all the international flights left from.
  12. Yes. Just did one yesterday. Very convenient
  13. Also a bad crown/bad impression. She didn't even do the work, I think it was her brother who worked there when she was on maternity leave. I haven't been back.
  14. Need some help. My good friend's wallet was either lost or stolen. Good news: no credit cards. Bad news: Mexican (and Canadian) driver's license and Inapam card. Does she have to go to Guadalajara to replace the driver's license? Can she go to the DIF in Chapala to replace the Inapam? Thanks in advance for any useful info.
  15. The number I have is for Jorge- delivers on Mondays- 5515102855. I just moved and tried to get him for last Monday, no luck. Hope I suggest next Monday I was told he speaks some English, but he only spoke Spanish when I called last week.
