  1. I discovered something interesting. We had always gone to CiBanco because of the low fee. But one day we went and got 10,000 pesos. My bank statement showed $475 U.S. taken out. the next day i had to go back and get the same amount. They were out of money so i went to Banorte in Chapala which has a 40 pesos fee. I got 10,000 pesos but my bank only took out $450. It was a difference of $25 US. It was only the next day and the rate was the same. I have since experimented with both ATM's and have found the same result. So as a result I now go to Banorte. Has anyone else seen this? I know some banks charge "cross border fees and other fees" and some do not.
  2. so sorry about your loss. Ive only lost one dog and cried like a baby. I now have 3 and will cherish every day with them
  3. Jeannee, I have a friend who does have an old dog that can no longer jump and i think she would love it if you still have it. Here is my email. boswelltb@yahoo.com
  4. Chuy Jiminez is excellent 331 048 5434
  5. Lisa, my very young in her 20's friend had a job with ABC teaching english on line to school children in China. She loved the interaction and freedom to work from home. I met another girl here who does the same thing. They work in the wee hours of the morning for only a few hours. The paycheck was just deposited into her U.S. account. No permanent visa required. Just a good internet connection and good english skills. They started requiring a degree. So if you have a degree this might be an option. Some companies do not require that you have a degree, but pay less. Good luck
  6. Yes, our very good friend. Very honest, hard working. A person on this board had a plumbing problem which 2 others never could find the problem after money and time never solved. I recommended Jesus and he went out and the person said he found it quickly, fixed it and was finished and the price was good. They were very impressed. Builds homes from raw land. Plumber, electrician, iron work, contruction, everything. Has built many houses here. Jesus (Chuy) Jiminez 331 048 5343 speaks english. If you need more detailed reference, you can call me at 332 055 6255
  7. yes, i have been trying to get mine for months. They have not had cards available. They told me to call first to see if the cards are available. I have not called in a long while so maybe they are ready. Go up street towards Soriana, turn right on Degollado. That corner is a Fruit water store, green awning. Go up the road. The DIF is on the left, big white building. Enter building, office is on the left. But yes i have been in there 3 times and she says to just call to see if cards are in.
  8. no they were not open today. But it is very easy to get what you need by texting to their whats app number if you speak spanish or use your google translate, and they respond promptly. I actually find it easier than going into the office. Let me know if i can help you.
  9. hi, well i dont know if that number is the direct line in Ajijic, but the sign on the door there said it is a number to deal with whatever you need. No there is no office in chapala that I know of. I meant we have a place in chapala that we needed wifi also along with our house in another location. good luck.
  10. here is their whats app or regular line 331 520 9621. I just set up another service in chapala. If you text in spanish they get right back to you. If you cant speak spanish, you can google translate and type in the text. Hope this helps
  11. we just returned from the border. No problems at all. Easy drive to Matahuala. Leave here at sunup, arrive Matahuala about 2:00, leave the next morning at sunup arrive border about 1:00. But we never go Loredo anymore. So many lines. We go Del Rio, or McAllen or piadras Negras. Just a thought.
  12. We have a very good Mexican lady friend who is looking for work. She likes cleaning, could do "cargiver" work, cooking or maybe something else you might need. Totally reliable and honest and hard working. Call me if interested or PM me. 332 055 6255. Thank you
  13. Yes, he is our very dear friend. That is his correct number. I just called him and he said he has not received any miscalls so he is so sorry. He doesnt know why the call didnt go through. But here is his wife, April's number also.331 518 6851 I think she is with him at this moment.
