  1. Its cheaper to buy a Volaris ticket to TIJ and I pay CBX directly for the crossing. So appears Volaris is adding a small markup. But want to confirm this is allowed by Volaris? Cedros- I checked the CBX website an hour ago. No info on website about it being closed. https://www.crossborderxpress.com/en/
  2. Volaris has 2 airport codes for Tijuana with different prices: 1. Tijuana (TIJ) 2. Tijuana Cross-Border Xpress (TJX) What's the difference and why the price difference? Does the TJX price include the CBX (Cross Border Express) fee? If so, what if I book to Tijuana (TIJ), then pay the CBX fee directly to CBX instead of Volaris? Is that allowed? Thanks.
  3. Yes, the instructions are on it, and it says "Se recomienda aplicar la cantidad suficiente de producto..." No idea how much "cantidad suficiente" (sufficient quantity) implies, meaning I found the instructions not sufficient. Based on Artsnob and Yo1's reply, I will sprinkle a handful and ensure they stay dry. Thanks.
  4. I read on a post here that Trompa is a recommended product against leaf cutter ants. How much should I use, and how often? 1/2 cup, full cup, entire 450g bottle all at once, etc? Thanks.
  5. Disposition of the snake matters too. True, coral snakes have more dangerous venom, but they tend to be shy and slither/run away more often than attack. Don't recall the source, but Corals cause about 1-2% of snake bites in Mexico. Rattle snakes are more aggressive. Hence more bites and fatalities due to rattlers here.
  6. Guillermo Martinez Cuen - Cédula Profesional: 549059 Zaragoza 325 45900 Chapala, Jalisco Tel.: (376) 765-2027 / 3760 As mentioned above, Guillermo is an attorney and partners with this Notario: Pascual Avila Perez, Notaria Publica No. 1 Ixtlahuacan De Los Membrillos, Jal 376 762 0240 or 376 762 0040 I don’t think Pascual Avila Perez speaks much English, but Guillermo is fluent in English.
  7. In the U.S., I used STA-BIL Small Engine Treatment (https://www.amazon.com/STA-BIL-22304-Engine-System-Cleaner/dp/B00NEG3K5O/) in my lawn mower. It cleans the fuel system. I could order it from Amazon U.S., but want to ask if there is a similar local product here I can get at a Ferrateria or garden store? Its not listed on Amazon Mexico. Thanks.
  8. Heard that the dispute over the La Floresta high-rise by the lake was resolved. Is this accurate? What do they plan to do with the bare-bones structure?
  9. Thank you Cedros and Mostly for the explanation. Do these debris or natural dams exist along the entire Chapala to Jocotepec corridor or are they mostly in the San Juan Cosala area?
  10. Just 3-4 inches of rain did this. Imagine the impact of a severe rain event if it occurs here: Rossiglione, a town in Italy's Liguria province near Genoa, got 29.2 inches of rain in 12 hours over Monday and Tuesday... https://theweek.com/natural-disasters/1005714/a-town-in-italy-just-got-60-percent-of-its-annual-rainfall-in-12-hours
  11. How do I determine if a car I bought in Mexico is part of the Takata airbag recall? In the U.S., the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has a recall search tool (https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls) where I simply enter the vehicle ID #. Is there a similar tool in Mexico? Do dealerships in Guadalajara do the replacement/fix? And is there a way to find out if the fix was already done on my car by the previous owner? Thanks.
  12. 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?
  13. 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.
  14. I believe its 2nd dose only, and only for Guad residents, correct? Do Chapala area residents qualify?
  15. 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.
  16. 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?
  17. Is it the Live NetTV Android app, the Live NetTV Fire TV Stick app, or both that have issues?
  18. 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.
  19. 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?
  20. 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
  21. Would you be willing to share the name of the clinic and/or the Dr.?
  22. 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?
  23. 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.
  24. 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)?
