  1. This is the link to the non-profit group involved in reviewing all of these permits issued by Chapala Gobierno. There are actually broad zoning rules that are supposed to protect residential neighborhoods. Based on their website which has very little English content, they do not seem to be gringos. https://www.facebook.com/pg/Sociedad-Amigos-del-Lago-de-Chapala-AC-317528205634600/posts/?ref=page_internal
  2. The only online INM form FMM that I am aware of, is strictly for visitors. You will get an INM form at either the airport where you land in Mexico or at an INM office at a land border crossing.
  3. So much for the peace and quiet of walking the Ajijic Malecon with power boats and jet-skis parked there.
  4. Ordered online at www.costco.com.mx. They never asked for proof of a script. Price wasn't bad perhaps due to exchange rate (about a year ago??). Delivery was free. You can check their online price at their website.
  5. If you decide to go to the consulate, read this page. You need to make an appointment. https://mx.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/notaries-public/
  6. Here's the process, leaving and returning. Other posters who did not retain the FMM form that they filled out when departing Mexico suggest that you fill in the upper part upon arrival (as described above), and only give the agent that upper part. Remember to hand them your RP card first and declare, "Soy Residente Permanente" as many coming off your flight may indeed be turistas.
  7. A quality imported dry eggless pasta from Italy such as a spaghetti, capellini or linguine is fine. However, when it comes to thicker wider pastas, you cannot beat the homemade pappardelles at either Alex's or Taverna Quattro Mori.
  8. You can buy various thicknesses of acrylic at vidrio shops. I have had them cut to my specs at Vi Lu Ma in Ajijic. FYI, depending on thickness, acrylic can be more expensive than glass.
  9. We used that lab just west of Bugambilias plaza that Natasha mentioned (next to Marissa's).
  10. Harry, I can't see the chart in your post either. But PERHAPS this is the chart you want to post??
  11. Have used both HandyMail and Sol y Luna. HandMail announced recently that outgoing letters must be brought to them unsealed so they can inspect to see if there are any checks in the envelope. If there are checks they will collect fees from you that they say reflect what Aduana charges. Once when I needed to mail a single house key (which I taped to the inside a standard greeting card), HandyMail would not take it, saying it was a 'package' not a letter. Sol y Luna took it without issue, and it arrived in the US with no delay. Most letters take about 7 to 10 days; it is best if you ask each company when they will next drive Norte if you are in a rush. As far as I can remember, both HandyMail and Sol y Luna were in the 20-30 peso range but it's been a number of months since I used either. If you are an LCS member they will take your mail for free, but you must show your current membership card.
  12. I found the requirements....parent vet had to have a USAA auto or home policy. I confirmed now online where during the application they will check for a policy by the parent vet's SSN
  13. Here are requirements....the parent vet has to have had a USAA policy. Active, retired and honorably separated officers and enlisted personnel of the U.S. military. Officer candidates in commissioning programs (Academy, ROTC, OCS/OTS). Adult children (18+) of USAA members who have or had a USAA auto or property insurance policy. Widows and widowers of USAA members who have or had a USAA auto or property insurance policy.
