  1. I'm finally grounded after 10 days of loud music torture here in Chapala. Expo has ended and the 8-12 hours of music from 4pm til 4am or thereabouts is over. This is the same technique the CIA uses to drive people crazy like Panamas Noriega or Wacos David Koresh! Entertainment for 100 or so people that disturbs and denies a decent night sleep to thousands. The noise sweeps over the entire Plaza de Toros Barrio and up the hills. Two or three tuba bands, then a headliner that comes on 11pm or later, usually later. Noise til 2 or 3 AM, then a few drunks left in the stands to mouth off or some kid practicing being a disc jockey. It's torture. Doesn't the neighbors of the Chapala bull ring do enough for the community? We host the Monday Tianguis for petes sake! Thrn too Chapala hosts endless weekend tourist activities, we are here for your holidays too. And yet for the diversion of a few the many are denied sleep or comfortable use of their homes!...? How much productivity is lost to nights of just a few hours sleep.? Its not just the gringo who is upset, my Mexican neighbors have had enough too. And I know those who live by the Park Christiana feel the same; thousands tortured for the diversion of a small number of out of towners who come so late to the events no local merchants prosper. Who really profits? An out of town promoters takes control of the lives of large segments of the local population, tortures them for his profit. Why do we put up with that? I know Ajijic suffers from the same problems. Somehow we have to push back against the forces that would turn all of Lakeside into some destination tourist zone with complete contempt for those who are residents here. Can something be done to regulate or need this torture!? Can we at least stop all activity at midnight!? Limit the number of continous days? Set limits on music volume.!? Lakeside is first and foremost residential, economically and culturally so let's respect the people who live here!
  2. Has there ever been a water Taxi service between chapala and Ajijic? Would it make economic sense to have such a service? Pier to Pier service would certainly take the increased hassle of going from one to the other.
  3. I'm gearing up to paint a couple exterior wall murals in the next month. The location (s) are fronting the Tianguis street in Chapala, A. OBREGON. I'm asking for paint donations of any exterior paints. Any colors. Any sizes. I have several murals in the Pike Place Market Seattle for refrence. I'm Ready to start! Crowdfunding encouraged.
  4. I am repairing my maid's computer. She says about 2 weeks ago the internet got slow and she suspects perhaps somebody is stealing her bandwidth. She has changed router passwords several times. Is anybody else having Internet problems in Chapala, has Telmex been squirrely? I don't want to get falsely hungup on passwords and possible hacking if it is a general problem.
  5. Hi Lakesiders, Can you help? I will be moving to Chapala in mid April and am looking for a rental in Chapala Centro specifically. My full wish list---2+ bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (tub please), good water pressure, enough hot water for full bath, good internet possibilities, some green space, place for a bicycle. Doesn´t matter if it´s furnished. Would love to have a dog. Can I see the lake from home? Would love to deal directly with the landlord. Will consider something that needs renovation in exchange for guaranteed low rent in the future. Is this pie in the sky? Looking at the listings it seems these wishes are possible. Many thanks for taking the time to answer. Hoolia

  9. Does anyone know why there is no City water in Chapala today? Sunday?? Who do we report to? Thanks! Bone dry in Chapala
  10. I'm new to this forum so if I am not posting in the right spot, I apologize. My husband and I are moving to Chapala in October 2016. We had an offer of a ride from a woman but she cannot confirm her availability until August so just in case that doesn't work out, I am looking at alternatives. It will be my husband and I and 2 small dogs along with about 6 small footlockers with our stuff in them. I'm pretty sure it would all fit in an SUV type vehicle. Has anyone ever done this before and if so, what were your experiences and do you know of anyone who does this. I really, really appreciate your help. Flying is not an option as our dogs are elderly and we do not want to stress them out. We can meet anywhere in Texas to meet up.
  11. How do i get from Chapala to Tonala by bus? is there any direct bus to Tonala?! Thanks!
  12. According to the Guadalajara Reporter, there are new plans to remove the Cristiania Park in Chapala to build a new Amusement Park complete with roller coasters. There are also plans in the making for a botanical garden, a lake museum and a cool futuristic looking pier off of the Chapala malecon more than likely coming off where the Cruise Ship used to dock next to the Palapa del Guayabo Restaurant. http://www.theguadalajarareporter.com/index.php/news/news/lake-chapala/47822-chapala-lays-out-grand-plan-for-sweeping-transformation

  16. For those who may be interested, the Fiestas Patrias de San Francisco in Chapala have now begun starting this Saturday night. It will be a novena as in it will continue for a total of 9 days with each day terminating with a fire work show with the famous castillo or Catherine's wheel. If you can only make it out to one night, don't miss the grand finale. In years past it ended with 3 castillos or Catherine´s wheels going at the same time, a most spectacular event. Hopefully, this year will be equally exciting. I hope to see you all there!

  18. I heard that some municipalities will give a INIPAM card holder discounts on property tax and water bills. Does Chapala participate in this offering? Has anyone found any discounts other than the usual items like meds and bus travel?
  19. I have just returned from Atlanta where I visited the Mexican Consulate to initiate my request for permanente status. The experience could not have been better. Although the consulate was very busy I was sitting in front of the consulate official within ten minutes. She was extremely helpful, very nice and explained every step thoroughly. Within 30 minutes that detail was complete. I went out to lunch and the visa was ready when I returned. The Atlanta consulate has all requirements in English on their web site. http://consulmex.sre.gob.mx/atlanta/index.php/component/content/article/11-visas/302-visas-to-travel-to-mexico If anyone has questions I'd be happy to help. I have questions for anyone else that has received a permanente: I understand the Chapala office has moved. Can someone tell me where it is located? Is the local process complex? Can I/Should I hire someone to stand in for me with the local process?
  20. Morning, Folks. Here's the question. Several months ago I went with friends to their appointment at the IMSS Clinic in Chapala and from there we went on to complete a few other errands. As we drove through one of the streets in Chapala, I noticed what seemed like a warehouse full of tables and chairs. I do not drive, and do not remember the name of the street. I am fairly certain that it was parallel to the main drag, and it was a one way heading towards Soriana's. I would like to go and see what the fellow has, but don't know where to start. I am capable of going to Chapala, wandering about and asking people if they know of such a place, but I thought I'd go for the easy way and ask here first. Please note: I am not looking for a recommendation for a carpenter. I have 2 that I use regularly, and they do good work. This place just really grabbed my interest. Here's hoping someone can save me some time and leg work. CDS
  21. I may need a housesitter, well someone to be in a house all the time to stop people from stealing it, be there to have possession and not leave, anybody want the job? People in Chapala go into vacant homes and squat and there is a potential situation here I may need someone to be there all the time until people see that the place is occupied.
  22. Quite a number of Tequilla distributors have tents set up on the Chapala Maleco just in front of the pier. Free samples of their offerings..Today thru Sunday..A nice stroll and some decent tastings and sale of products...No cover charge..Try it, we just did and it was fun..
  23. Cambiaron el Registro Público de Propieded y Comercio en Chapala, ya no está en la calle Ramon Corona, está junto a la recaudadora en la calle Degollado. They have moved the Property and Commercial registry office from on the malecon area to Degollado Street #306 next to the state tax collection office.
  24. So like a good boy I went today to pay my property taxes and water and business license. The offices for payment of property taxes and business licenses are closed and open Monday, January 6, 2014 although SIMAPA is open today and tomorrow for water payments. Keep this in mind to only make one trip. At 8.30am there was a big line to make vehicle payments at the recaudadora office, who would have thought that!?
