    First time visiting Ajijic

    Lake Chapala Society should be your first stop! They have a website that shows all their activities and a nice cafe to sit and chat.

    Mexican Driver's License

    When we needed to get our Mexican drivers licenses we hired Luzma Grande (333-452-1670). She made it incredibly easy! She got us safely deep into Guad and got us in and out in just over an hour (she did say that was unusual even for her). Highly recommended.
  3. We have a Mexican oral family history (in Spanish) that needs to be transcribed then translated into English. The recordings are under two hours in length. Anybody know where I can get this done?

    Address? Cross streets? Landmarks?

    Another vote for Polo! He's the best.

    Ministerio Publico in Chapala

    Have you posted your question on the Lake Chapala Crime Watch Facebook page? I think you might get more detailed answers there.

    Replacing CFE meter with new one

    CFE came out and replaced our meter a year ago. They must've entered the numbers wrong since my next bill was double normal (and then the bill dropped back to the usual amount the bill after)! Went to CFE, should've saved my breath. Might have helped if i had taken a date stamped photo of our meter before and after.

    If he isn't working can we leave it for him at Sunrise?

    driver needed

    Also recommend Miramontes (not Montemores). The number is correct. We like Jessica the best, but all are very, very nice and prompt. Used them 4 times this past year.
  10. Miramontes. We've used them 4 times this past year, always good. Don't remember cost but don't want surprises, just a good, safe ride. We request Jessica.
  11. Is there a parade in Chapala or has that already happened?

    Getting out of DAC

    Checked all that. Cut the pool pump down to 1 hour a day and have an older fridge, but other than that we're stumped. We've even stopped using the dishwasher. Three conservation minded adults are still recording over 14 kilowatts per day! Way too high.

    Getting out of DAC

    We are renting and pay electric. Our bill runs $4000-5000 every cycle. We've done everything we can think of to get it down. Landlord says that when they lived here the bill was around $1000. CFE showed us that the prior tenants bills ran just over $4000. We're now looking for an electrician to go through the house to help us figure our where the problem is. I'm looking for a referral to a local "electrical detective" to help us figure out what the problem is. Recommendations appreciated!!!
  14. CBX has a shuttle that took us to the airport (reasonable too). Since we were the only passengers they might take you to the port. We also did a cab and that cost a fortune!

    The US Consulate comes to LCS once a month and will do notaries. I think the details are on the consulate webpage.
