  1. Thanks for all the responses. Sounds like (no pun intended) south-side of the Carretera and possibly south-side of the Libramiento is quieter. GringoHombre- Yes, I noticed north of the Carretera is pricier and interesting that despite the noise, houses there command higher prices. Ferret- I'm assuming you are south of the Carretera?
  2. I'm looking to buy a house in or near San Antonio Tlayacapan, and I'm looking at houses in SAT village, La Floresta (eastern part, closer to SAT), and along the Libramiento. I've observed that homes on the mountain-side (north) of the Libramiento tend to get noise from heavy trucks using Jake Brakes (that "machine gun" or "jackhammer" noise). This seems to occur in the daytime, but I'm unsure how common at night. Generally, how early and how late does one hear Jake Brakes? Is it limited to business hours (8am to 6pm)? Is the noise less on the south-side of the Libramiento vs. the north-side? Can you hear Jake Brakes in La Floresta as well? Thanks.
  3. I believe its 2nd dose only, and only for Guad residents, correct? Do Chapala area residents qualify?
  4. Has anyone had a MRI done at the new Riberas Hospital (I think the correct name is Ribera Medical Center)? If so, what was your experience like? Thanks.
  5. I’m unable to determine if this app is malicious or not. However, just because an app is working well or the logo says Amazon, doesn’t mean the app is not malicious. It could be working well, but still collect sensitive data and install viruses in the background. I don’t know Rich. Perhaps someone who knows him could check with him and report back? I searched the Amazon App store, and surprisingly, did not find any Antivirus Apps there. Anyone know if there is a way to download the Amazon version of Live NetTV app (on to a laptop or phone/tablet) and run a virus scan?
  6. Is it the Live NetTV Android app, the Live NetTV Fire TV Stick app, or both that have issues?
  7. Given the level of community spread in Mexico, a bit too late I think. But if Delta mutates to something worse in another part of the world, it could delay its arrival by weeks or more.
  8. I have tiny ants that are in a bathroom electrical outlet and travel between the electrical outlet and the ceiling. I’ve read several posts on this site about ant issues and tried borax (acido borico) mixed with honey as bait, but they have no interest in the bait. Also tried borax with peanut butter, and then tried borax with sugar. They didn’t work either. Any idea what bait I can use for these little critters? If it helps, the bathroom where the ants are located is on the other end of the house from the kitchen and I don’t have ants in the kitchen, so appears food items might not attract them?
  9. Canadian company Jack Nathan Health announces new coronavirus testing program with Walmart Mexico... See https://www.proactiveinvestors.com/companies/news/954732/jack-nathan-health-announces-new-coronavirus-testing-program-with-walmart-mexico-954732.html
  10. Would you be willing to share the name of the clinic and/or the Dr.?
  11. Are you saying the generics at Farmacia Similares don't contain the same ingredients as the name brand version? I guess the name says it all: "Similares" signifies similar but not the same?
  12. Thanks for all the responses. I don't have a smart TV, but do have a Fire TV Stick attached to my 'non-Smart' TV. I searched the Amazon App store, but did not find a Claro Video app. I did find a Claro Video app on the Google Android app store, but unsure if its possible to install a Google store app on a Fire Stick. I will try to cast it from my Android phone to my Fire Stick (this will be first time trying to cast). I initially did try HBO Max on my Fire Stick. It appears to download the U.S. version of HBO Max, then the app tells me it cannot connect to the server. Maybe its because I have a U.S.-based Amazon (Fire TV) account and won't install the Mexican version? I tried using VPN (connected to U.S. servers) and it still gave me the same message. So for now, I'm unable to get HBO Max working. Regarding AndyPanda's response that there's a box, I searched the Claro Video FAQ page (https://www.clarovideo.com/fe/sitesplus/sk_telmex/html/esp/faqs.html) and found this: Los dispositivos donde podrás disfrutar Claro video son: Navegadores Web (Explorer, Safari, Chrome, Firefox o Edge), tabletas y Smartphone de sistemas operativos Android e iOS, Smart TV (Samsung, Lg, Hisense, Sony), Player de Claro video, Apple TV, XBOX ONE, PS4 y Chromecast. Appears "Player de Claro video" is a box/device that's sold by Telmex for 800 pesos: https://www.claroshop.com/amp/producto/484217/ Note that the Claro Video FAQ page does not mention Fire TV Stick.
  13. How do I get the Claro Video service that comes with Telmex phone & internet? Do I need some type of box/device for the TV? Or is it an app that is installed on a Fire TV Stick or Android device? And is it actually included with Telmex phone & internet service or is it an introductory offer (say 6 or 12 months free, and then pay a monthly fee after that)?
  14. When I reload for 30-days (200 pesos) on my Paquetes Amigo Sin Límite plan at Telcel store in Laguna Mall, I always get 30 days of cellular service. But if I pay the same 30-days (200 pesos) online, I get about 2 weeks of cellular service. Anyone know why this is the case?
  15. Went to Greg's Auto Clinic in Chapala yesterday (on highway to Mezcala, just past Letra CH restaurant). It was closed and didn't see any sign on the gate. Anyone know if Greg closed shop or is he on vacation?
  16. Last time (~2 months ago) I used Citibanamex ATM at Walmart with U.S. debit card, I was charged 31 peso fee. One issue with Citibanamex ATM at Walmart is it limits withdrawals to 6,000 pesos. If I withdraw 12,000 pesos or more at CI Banco, their 58 peso fee is better than 31x2=62 pesos at Citibanamex.
  17. Thanks for providing the link. The Y axis appears to show the level in meters and my translator says Cota = level or height. But 90 meters does not seem correct. The lake is quite shallow. So what does Cota(m) ranging from 90-99 mean? Is it volume? If so, the graph indicates the lake does not change much in volume: a low of 90.8 in 1955 and high of 99.4 in 1935.
  18. Agree, some folks are naturally gifted. I am open to trying the naturally gifted with, say a carpenter, but with my health, ... well, at least I try to do my research.
  19. Is there a way to determine if a local physiotherapist/physical therapist has the requisite qualifications and is licensed/certified to operate? For doctors and lawyers, I have used the websites below. Do the same web sites apply for physiotherapists? https://www.cedulaprofesional.sep.gob.mx/cedula/presidencia/indexAvanzada.action https://cedulaprofesionalsep-gob.mx/ Thanks.
  20. see article in Guad Reporter. Spencer McMullen recommends carrying INM card, due to "recent policy changes." https://theguadalajarareporter.net/index.php/news/news/guadalajara/56751-foreigners-advised-to-carry-immigration-docs
  21. Maybe the larve is what causes my grass to turn yellow? Harmless to people but maybe not to gardens. Is there a treatment for the larve?
  22. Thanks for the info. Do they hibernate for part of the year? Is that why they appear in May-June? They seem to fly around for a while at night and next day are motionless or dead.
  23. Thanks. I was asked for QR code last time I traveled as well. Just tried the old form and it re-directs to the new site. I guess the new site replaces the old. The new site requires a login though.
  24. Is there a new form to fill-in when returning to Mexico regarding risk factors for travelers? Last time I traveled, I filled-in a form on https://afac.hostingerapp.com/. But just heard about a new form at https://www.vuelaseguro.com. Is this recent and does it replace the old one? And is there a form to fill-in regarding health risks when leaving Mexico? Thanks.
