    Bad Experience in Mexico City (MUST READ)

    Thank you for the heads up. I'm very picky about the hooker-infested, meth-reeking, floor-flooded, dump hotels that I frequent - short and long term. I'll certainly change my Trip Advisor rating of the Hotel Corinto based on your experience. Cheers!

    I think you missed my point.

    Anti Plastic law passed. Everybody help

    I totally understand the threat of plastics on the environment, but I'm also old enough to remember not too long ago everyone was, "Save the trees! Don't use paper! The 'paperless office' is the future!". The only constant is change. How long until it changes to something else?

    Yes, it had no sugar... It had artificial sweetener instead. Just saying.

    Thoughts on First Luxury Project in Chapala?

    So... you say you speak Spanish, have "purchased hundreds and hundreds of properties around the world", you have many rich Tapatios for friends, and, based on your posts, a lot of money... Then why are you asking a bunch of ex-pat strangers of indeterminate means on a public webboard about real estate investing advice in Mexico? Based on your posts, one would think you would have many wealthy friends in Guadalajara (as you claim) that would give you the skinny on what's hot out here, and probably the inside track as well. Sorry, you seem personable, but something here doesn't add up. Just my two pesos.

    I'm just curious if storms that affect CFE's power lines will also affect the Ilox fibre optic if it is piggybacking on the same poles.

    Wedding Present

    The level of social strata will determine what kind of gift. I've been to modest weddings in dirt fields where the tequila was passed around to very high-end weddings where body guards were in plain sight, to a range of celebrations across the middle spectrum. All types of these were great fun, but you wouldn't be gifting the same way for all of them. As gimpychimp wrote, what is traditional in the village might not cut it in the city.

    180 Day Tourist Visa Calculation

    You know, there are websites that actually count calendar days for you if you don't want to do it yourself. Try one out. It's fun! 😊

    Fund raiser for local star

    It's right there in the very first post. It takes you right to the GoFundMe page. Easy - peasy.

    I'm sorry, but when a restaurant opens its doors to the paying public all bets are off. It's sink or swim time and if the owner doesn't know enough to poach, hire, or train good cooks and waitstaff, they don't belong in the business. And probably won't be for long.

    Best Way to find Rentals

    I feel that the most important thing to do right now is to be truly honest with yourself and your realtor/agent as to how much you are willing to spend. That amount will narrow down your search of houses, neighborhoods and towns and save you time and disappointment. You also have to be brutally honest about your noise/commotion tolerance. That, too, will help narrow down your location search. In my 12 years of life down here, I believe that many of the unhappy and dissatisfied people I've met wouldn't feel that way if they chose the proper location that suit them as soon as possible... and not some romantic notion of where they "should" live. Trust your gut and you'll be fine. Welcome to Mexico!
