  1. Where can I buy ladies scarves with a Mexican design/motif? And is it correct that Eugini's Boutique (about a block up from Maria Isabel's restaurant on Ajijic malecon) is permanently closed? Thanks.
  2. Thanks. I will reach out to Chapala Tree Service. I have a guy who trims my palm trees and he offered to treat the trees, if I could figure out what insecticide to use. I'm guessing Chapala Tree Service's treatment is proprietary and not something I can buy at a store?
  3. Salud Digna is advertising the test for 950 pesos (https://salud-digna.org/covid-19/estudio-covid-19/). Any idea why the big difference in price between Salud Digna and Chopo?
  4. Is there an insecticide or treatment I can apply to prevent the South American palm tree weevil from attacking palm trees? A neighbor lost a couple of palm trees to this beetle and would like to prevent infestation on my property.
  5. Thanks, I will look at this option as well.
  6. Thanks for the info. I will look in to the SIM specifically for banking. Concerned that it can be fussy at times, since my bank will no longer offer the email option. Received this message from my bank: "As part of our commitment to your security, we're removing the email option in the coming weeks because our team has identified a trend of fraudsters attempting to take advantage of security codes delivered to email."
  7. Has anyone successfully used OneSIM card (https://www.onesimcard.com/international-sim-card/) to receive SMS security codes from a U.S. bank? Starting next month, my U.S. bank will stop sending SMS security codes to email addresses and previously stopped sending codes to VoIP numbers. So, I need U.S. phone # to access my bank online. Yes, I could get a U.S. number from Consumer Cellular (or another U.S. pre-pay company), but I’d like the option to use the phone while traveling in other countries for calls, texts and data. Consumer Cellular and other U.S. pre-pay companies don’t seem to offer g
  8. I checked my last bank statement and noticed that the ISR deduction was 42% of interest earned for last month. Using some simple calculations, no compound interest etc., here’s what I determined. Assume a balance of 10,000 MXN, earned annual interest rate of 3.0%. Annual interest = 10,000*3.0% = 300 MXN, so monthly interest earned approx. = 300/12 = 25.00 MXN. ISR tax of 1.45% on the principal amount = 10,000*1.45% = 145 MXN annual, so monthly is approx. = 145/12 = 12.08 MXN As a percentage, ISR withholding = 12.08 / 25.00 = 48.33% (close to the 49% you’re getting). Not a
  9. Does the city offer geological reports for the entire Chapala municipality? Do I get these at the Palacio Municipal de Chapala or are they available online on the http://www.chapala.gob.mx/ website?
  10. Thank you oregontochapala and barrbower. I will try visiting Eduardo's vivero or calling after 7pm.
  11. I’m trying to reach landscaper Eduardo Galindo. Tried 376-766-5528 multiple times, but no answer or v-mail available. Does anyone have a different number for him? Also, is Martin Galindo at Vivero Rancho del Oro (a couple of doors east of Muebles UOU in W. Ajijic) connected to Eduardo? I was recommended Eduardo Galindo and Martin Galindo, but unsure if they are connected. Thanks.
  12. I currently use a surge protector/surge strip for my computer, TV, etc. This thread has folks recommending voltage regulators, uninterruptible power supply (UPS), and power conditioners. I have limited knowledge of these different products, but would like to know if a surge protector/surge strip is adequate to protect from the voltage changes, brownouts and other electricity issues we experience here? Or, do I need a different product? Or, is there such a thing as an "all-in-one" (i.e., a combined surge protector voltage regulator, UPS and power conditioner)?
  13. Was it one transaction or two? I thought the limit at CI Banco at Laguna mall was 10,000 pesos.
  14. Be careful with this vaccine. In the U.S., it is not approved for use in individuals not previously infected by any dengue virus. The CDC link utilitus provided has the warnings: The vaccine manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur, announced in 2017 that people who receive the vaccine and have not been previously infected with a dengue virus may be at risk of developing severe dengue if they get dengue after being vaccinated.
  15. Thanks for this info. What type of fees does Xoom charge? Or do they make their fees off the exchange rate?
