  1. I've been to coastal Mexico many times over the years and have always learned that Gracias means thank-you. Today I was emailing Luis Miramontes, in english, about scheduling some transportation with him. In the last of our emails I said Gracias Luis, thinking I was thanking him in his native tongue, spanish. He replied that Gracias means yes or not, or maybe. I've learnt that yes is si, and no is no. Not sure what to make of this. Is there another dialect of Spanish spoken inland that is going to make me question all I've learned about the language to date.
  2. Thank-you all for your responses. This information is helpful to understand why there are no evening cruises.
  3. My husband and I will be down this February for two weeks and are looking to take in a sunset cruise on the lake. I see lots of day trips to the numerous islands in small boats, but cannot find a sunset cruise. Does anybody know if there is even such a thing?
  4. Thank-you all very much for the useful information.
  5. Is it easy to rent a car while in Ajijic or do these sell out quickly and we should book before we get there in February? I'm asking because we aren't 100 sure we will rent a car. Our preference is to hire a private driver to tour us around the many villages since we won't know where the local shops are and real estate developments. Just having a hard time getting a hold of anybody down there so we may have to rent a car and do it ourselves.
  6. Can one visit the Lake Chapala Society in Ajijic to learn about the area without buying a membership? What hours does it operate?
  7. Excuse my lack of knowledge but what area code for this number?
  8. Thank-you ibarra, I thought that was the thread I got the number from, maybe the post with the email was after I'd read the thread or I just missed it. Chapalence, I need more than just airport transfers which is why I was explicitly asking for a way to contact Francisco by email.
  9. I have the number 333-157-8060 for Francisco but don't know if I can reach him via text. He is highly recommended as a private driver, which we need, but I tried texting him (calling from Canada is ridiculously expensive) and never received a reply. I'd love to correspond via email with him and if that's not possible, to at the very least correspond by text. I don't know this gentleman from Adam and thought possibly he received my text but doesn't read English. Does anybody know if he has an email he can be reached at?
  10. Thank-you very much to everybody that took the time to reply to my question.
  11. I purchased a sim card in Cabo San Lucas this past winter that still has money left on it. I don't know how the Mexico phones work but if I use it in Ajijic, will I be charged long distance when making phone calls to local businesses in Ajijic using this sim card?
  12. Hi, do you know if Francisco can be reached via text to the number you provided. I tried texting (just because long distance calls from Canada can be very expensive) but I didn't receive a response from him. Would you know if he can be reached via email?
