  1. Thanks SO MUCH. I Will attempt to do it myself and if it gets too complicated will definitely contact Spencer. I don’t have his contact information but I am Magent it’s easy to get once I get to Chapala. Really appreciate your help!
  2. Greetings, Life is really complicated isn’t it? My Cosco membership just ended and I don’t know how often I’ll be getting into Guadalajara because I won’t have a car. Because I could find nowhere to stay in Chapala during the high season, I will be in Guadalajara for the month of December and then hopefully moving into hotel Perico for the rest of the high season. As late March and early April come around, I’m hoping that I can find a rental for $550 or less that will accept cats that is within walking distance to the San Antonio and Aijic Centers. If you want to get together the ne
  3. Right now I feel as though there are two of me, one trying to get ready for this big move and the other one who wants to hide under the covers. So yes, l am both Margo and Margo Morado. What I need the most help with is finding a place where I can live without a car and with a cat. I can only spend up to $550. I am open to walking 45 minutes into town as long as it is a safe route but obviously would prefer to be closer if possible. I have made inquiries at all the usual places and I’m beginning to think that , as many people say, I really won’t be able to find a place until I come
  4. Wish my Spanish were better so that I could teach it but as an EFL teacher I did not need to because it is an immersion course and only English is used’ Thanks for your response! Margo
  5. I won’t have a car So it would have to be an apartment on one of the bus lines
  6. I am really open to any reasonable solution. My cat has lived with dogs. I don’t know how he’ll be around other cats but I all my friends have cats so l could certainly do a hopefully harmless experiment. you are so kind to spend time helping a complete stranger!
  7. What type of service is this? What is the time?
  8. Greetings, My greetings, My aunt is going into an assisted living /Nursing home in San Antonio in December. I am also moving to the Chapala area. In general, does it make sense to keep Medicare or Medicare advantage when one is in a nursing home in Mexico? Although the money saved would only be about $100 a month, that would add up and might help to pay for medication or Even treatment if it were necessary. I am hoping to get a temporary residency. I understand that in order to apply forthe Government health plan in Mexico, you have to be under 80 years old and you
  9. I have a place to stay with a friend through February when l contacted hotel Perico, Jan said that there will be a room avaiable in March and cats are welcome. After my aunt and l get settled in, l will go to see Hotel Perico and meet with Jan, who sounds lovely. If everything works out, I can see myself staying indefinitely there because I have virtually no possessions and don’t require much personal private space when there are such beautiful and extensive grounds. Thanks again to all of you!
  10. Did You drive your cats down or did you fly? I’m really scared to put my cat in the hold and he is way too big to fit under a seat. At 70, I am a bit of a coward and the idea of driving for 2 1/2 days alone. with my cat is not appealing. Is there a board or site where you can check to see if people want a ride to or from the US to Chapala or Guadalajara? thanks!
  11. This is for all my calls, and yes I am moving to Chapala. Thanks for your suggestions
  12. Thanks, Natasha. I tried to find it just now to see if l read it. I usually respond when I get responses or questions, so if I didn’t, I probably didn’t see yours. All of these sites work a little bit differently. Where should l look? Thanks!
  13. Thank you so much for your replies. I guess I need to go back to Chapala and look it over a little bit more but I do have a feeling that Aijic would be better, especially since my aunt will be in a nursing home there. Thanks for letting me know that a bicycle now would not be safe. I have lived in some pretty tough places with a very strong police presence. It would’ve been nice to get away from it but I can certainly deal with it. I’m probably romanticizing Aijic. Thanks again!
  14. Greetings! I am moving to the Lake Chapala area with my aunt who will be moving into a nursing home. I am a single woman with a very large white Maine coon cat who plans to ditch her car... ahhhhhhh. I have noticed that apartments are cheaper and seem to be larger in Chapala than in Aijic. I am a very social person and anticipate wanting to spend a lot of time at the lake Chapala society . My question is this would it be practical and safe to bike from Chapala to Aijic? Is it even possible to find route where traffic isn’t life threatening? l would be most concerned about th
  15. Thanks so much for your helpful responses! My aunt can still manage all of her activities of daily living and has mild dementia that does not interfere with her ability to live normally. We have decided on Mi Casita in San Antonio which l visited on my recent research trip to Chapala. The hope is that as she gets older they will be able to increase her level of care if need be. I am truly impressed and touched by the helpfulness of the people on this web for it. Thanks again
  16. Because getting my aunt into a nursing home in the Chapala area appears to be more complicated than I thought, I wonder if it would make sense to get a larger apartment so that we could live together. Our combined Social Securities are US$3000 per month. Assuming we could find a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apt or Casita for about $800 a month, that would leave us with quite a bit to pay a caregiver after we account for our basic expenses - I hope! my aunt is 92 and has mild dementia but is in really good physical shape. She uses a cane and has partial blindness in one eye but other than that sh

  18. Humanitarian visa? Interesting and soundstoo good to be true in our current world. But thank you I will check this out. You've been very helpful too good to be true in our current world. But thank you I will check this out. You've been very helpful
  19. No, no Spanish. I understand pretty well but speak poorly. I have excepted that I will probably spend a lot of my own savings on my aunt as time goes by. Thank you so much for your helphave excepted that I will probably spend a lot of my own savings on my aunt as time goes by. Thank you so much for your help
  20. Thank you all SO MUCH for this very helpful info.
  21. I am bringing my aunt with me to the Chapala area so that she can be in assisted living that we can afford. Her passport is good for two years. We are gathering her documents to show that she gets just over $1800 a month i'm Social Security. I am her power of attorney. If we cannot qualify for the Temporal visa, will they expect her to come back to the states after every six months? She will be over 92 years old and frail. Do you think that as power of attorney I could bring her passport and visa back to the US and get it renewed when l renew mine without bringing her in such an exhaust
  22. I am moving to Aijic in the near future and bringing my main coon with me. I know about all the shots and the medical requirements. What concerns me is getting foxy there. I don't think he will fit under airline seat and I don't want to put him in the cargo as I have heard horror stories. Has anyone gone through this process and figured out what to do? It might actually be less expensive to buy him a separate seat than to drive down and drive back up to bring to the Albuquerque because I don't want a car when I'm living in the Chapala area. Any help will be much appreciated! Thanks!
