  3. Is the antigen test the one for covid? If so Im not sure.
  4. Hi Phil, we go to the lab on the street right behind Central (the bus station) in chapala on the east side. It is exactly one half of the cost of Chopo in Riberas. They do not speak english.
  5. I have a great mexican friend who would like to cook or clean 2 or 3 times a week or however often you need. She also would bathe a woman or care give for few hours while a spouse runs errands. She is Mexican and speaks only Spanish but a great cook and cleaner loving and compassionate. She cares for my mother in law. She lives in Chapala. You can call me for referral: 332 055 6255 or email: boswelltb@yahoo.com

  9. Our friend who is moving here wants to know if she can get the drug Humira here. It is for a skin disorder. We went to 2 pharmacies yesterday and they said maybe Guadalajara. It is by injection and has to be on ice. Just curious if anyone here uses it and where do they get it? Next I will call a dermatologist. Thank you for your help.

  12. We had to be in the U.S. too when our house closed here in Mexico. Our realtor was the power of attorney and signed all the papers for us at the Notario meeting. It was very easy. That was 8 years ago.
  13. Congradulations. We had a honda fit for many years. Many trips to the states. Great gas mileage. Great car for us....

  15. Ok, yes he gave us the Azul plan at first. We were not aware of the Ambar (bronze) plan so the next year we told him we just had to reduce the cost. So explained that the middle class mexicans use Country 2000 and other good hospitals and you dont need the "boutique" hospitals. So we switched. Here is what we pay and we are 65 and 63, no pre existing conditions. 2020-2021 year 56,027.30 pesos about 2,858.00 US It went up $9000 pesos from last year.....We pay this year simi anually which is 5% more which is $2,801 pesos more about $142 US with the peso rate when we did this at 19.60. So we paid 29,414.33pesos march 21st and september 21 we have to pay another 29,414.33pesos which is about $1,500US which another guy on here said was about $3,000US per year ( I was wrong about the only $2,000US) So that $3000 is for us as a couple not each person. That amount you mentioned sound like the highest plan the Blue plan (Azul) Actually we are thinking to go with the even cheaper plan next time. He said we would not want it. But we have learned with Country 2000 that when admitted you pay $2000 US down and can pay the bill out. So that is $1000US cheaper than the deductable. the deductable is $3000 per illness. I dont know Im going to look into it because we are healthy.....who knows. Well hope those figures helped. It also covers illness and accidents that happen in the states.
  16. ours with Bellon GNP is $2000 per year, 65 and 63. We have the Bronze plan. No "boutique" hospitals that are in the Blue plan. But it includes Country 2000 and other very very good hospitals that are excellent and we have had great experience with them.
  17. I knew to never accept the rate and did not....but thanks for the advice
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. Chuy Jiminez is excellent 331 048 5434
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
