  1. We are moving to the area and we will be coming with our dog and cat. We are flying in, I know it is easier to drive but that is not an option and I know the requirements of the airline, what I am looking for are any tips to help get through customs without any problems.

  3. Ok, problem here is Voalris says thirty days but will that cause a problem with customs because according to the website before yours it says 15 days? I called Volaris and they said thirty days.
  4. Ok, that website says 15 days before arriving for the rabies shot, but everything I have read says 30 days.
  5. Wow, you did not scare me, I appreciate the information. However, I am getting so discouraged about making this move. Everything is so negative and I know you were just being honest. Nothing seems to be easy or without a major ordeal. Thank you.
  6. Can I send my husband a box, regular moving box I think it says medium box I bought it at the U-Haul store? All it would have in it is clothing. What is the best way? I will be sending it from Florida.
  7. We are moving to Lake Chapala in June and bringing our dog ( 6lbs. Shih Poo, 5yrs. old ,excellent health) and our cat ( 11 lbs. , 10 yrs old, excellent health). Has anyone, recently, flown Volaris and know what documentation we need? I have read a 100 different things, all saying different things. Would love to hear from someone who has "lived" it.
  8. I live in Florida and we will be retiring to Ajijic in June. I am sorry but it just seems that many of you are using terms like "them" "type of people" "those people" and "these people", I find that quite unsettling. These scams happen everyday NOB and not just in parking lots, which everyone should know (either SOB or NOB) that you do not do business with anyone in parking lots. You especially do not agree to have anyone do a job for you and not get the price up front. Also, are things that bad there that people fear "car washers" and are there criminals ( including murders) running rampant because Jim Bowie says only 10% of criminals are ever charged and go to jail? Help, me understand what kind of place we are moving to because after reading majority of these posts , sounds like it is too unsafe to live there.
  9. You can order a kit and do it yourself. Amazon sells them. I have done it myself but in Florida.
  10. Majority, if not all, charge for baggage, now. I believe only Southwest doesn't , but not even sure about that.
  11. Gringal I looked at the site and it is perfect, but do you know if there is a bus stop? He will need to get around.
  12. DISCLAIMER- I do not know if this belongs in this section, so ,please, if it does not I will remove it, thank you. My husband will be arriving in Lake Chapala the last week of March and we are wondering if anyone has or knows of anyone who has a room to rent ( for about a week or less)? He is arriving ahead of me to get everything arranged for us, I will be arriving the first week of June. He will be looking for a short term lease, once he arrives. We have been told by numerous people that many of the short term leases are posted on various bulletin boards, in the area. We have looked on several sites for hotels, motels and AirBnB and are finding extravagant prices , $800 or more for 10 days and so on. So we are hoping someone needs or wants some extra cash and would like to play host for a few days. We had someone lined up, but they backed out after finding out that we are an interracial couple. I am white and my husband is black. I normally do not feel the need to introduce ourselves in this fashion, however over the past ten years that we have been together, we have had our share of unfortunate attention. Some people just do not like it and I respect that, it is their right. But, I feel the need to let a potential host know this , in case they are "uncomfortable" with this, like our last potential host. I do not believe this is the norm, for this area. My husband and I are both professional people. He worked within the criminal justice system for more than 25 years and I am a middle school teacher, he is 50 and I am 51. He might sip on a glass of wine, I have never seen him finish a glass and he does not smoke. He is a true southern gentleman. We are so excited about retiring to the area , we just need a wee bit of help, to get us started.

  14. Oh, my thank you, excellent point. He will not have a vehicle, but he ,also, is not opposed to public transportation, if easily accessible.
  15. My husband will be coming down to Lake Chapala, at the end of March. He will be looking for a place for us to rent and preparing everything for our permanent move, I will be joining him the first week of June. While he is looking for a place for us to rent he will be needing a place to stay. Can anyone suggest some places that he can stay, while looking? Short term rental or maybe a B&B ? Something reasonable and reasonable means under $700 a month because we will be paying bills in both places, until I join him. I appreciate any help and suggestions. He is flying down, so no vehicle, but is not opposed to public transportation, if readily accessible. This is a fact finding mission (LOL) so some place not to remote, but town choice is open as long as he can get around and explore.
  16. Are you allowed to suggest someone?
  17. I apologize Jeanneboo, I really do. My husband and I are making the move to Ajijic in May and I have been on a lot ( and I mean a lot) of sites like these and it is always the same, someone asks a simple question or makes a simple reply and people pounce. The stress and anxiety over this move just got to me and I acted in an inappropriate way. Please, accept my apology, I did not want to make you upset.
  18. This may sound weird but I restored an old desk and I used coconut oil, just apply in small doses, it worked like a charm.
  19. Ferret whatever you need to tell yourself to feel better about your life is fine with me.
  20. Wow, I know this will probably get me banned, but majority of you people are pathetic. You sound like a bunch of bitter , unfulfilled and unintelligent assholes. Ferret what you did was a desperate sign for validation. I am sorry your life didn't turn out the way you planned. If this is a sample of the type of people who are there a warning sign needs to be posted: DANGER!!! AHEAD LIES A COMMUNITY FILLED WITH HAS BEENS WHO NEVER WERE!!!!!!!!
  21. This is from WebMD a very reputable site. I posted this not to start trouble or a begin a debate, but some of you are so nasty in your replies. E-cigs, majority of them, have some form of formaldehyde or antifreeze (this is a fact, can be proven) so when Gringal stated they are worse, there is some truth in what she said. There was no reason to try and be so rude. It seems like some of the same people sit around and wait to pounce on peoples' posts, that is really not nice. Now, many of you are going to feel the need to pounce on my reply, please, I am asking you to just reflect on what and how you phrase your replies. Are They Safe?http://www.webmd.com/smoking-cessation/features/vape-debate-electronic-cigarettes Most contain the chemical nicotine, which is addictive. When you stop using it, you can go into withdrawal and feel depressed and crabby. Nicotine isn't good for people with heart problems. And some initial research shows it may hurt your arteries. It can also: Harm the developing brains of kids and could affect memory and attention. Damage unborn babies. Pregnant women shouldn't use anything with nicotine. But the concerns go beyond nicotine alone. Some brands contain chemicals including formaldehyde -- often used in building materials -- and another ingredient used in antifreeze that can cause cancer. Flavors in e-cigs also raise red flags. Some use a buttery-tasting chemical called diacetyl, which is often added to foods like popcorn. When it's inhaled, it can be dangerous. "Diacetyl is a well-known harmful chemical, which, among other things, causes a lung disease called 'popcorn lung,'" says Erika Sward, assistant vice president for national advocacy at the American Lung Association.
  22. Honestly, make a new thread. This has nothing to do with the original question, that was posted. I am sorry but this is rude.
