After 20 years working as an engineer and manager in the U.S. I have had enough of corporate life and am contemplating early retirement. Thus I plan to spend the month of April experiencing Lakeside life as part of a scouting mission to Mexico. I could use some advice on good neighborhoods to get the most out of the visit and perhaps some help vetting a rental before I commit to a whole month. Online listings and photos don't tell the whole story, and I'd hate to find myself in an undesirable part of town or next to a jackhammer testing facility. On the other hand, I am doing my best to stay within my early retirement budget and expect to make some compromises. I will be driving down with my dog, so off street parking and a garden/courtyard area would be nice. Good internet service would be helpful. Although I will have a car, it would be nice to be able to walk to restaurants, etc. It's just me and the dog this time so I don't need a large house... I would rather be paying for location and quality than size. Tips on where I should focus my search would be greatly appreciated. I apologize if this is a tiresome subject on this board. Feel free to message me directly.
Hi Folks, My wife and I will be visiting in Feb. for about 4-6 days with an eye toward the possibility of moving long term. What kind of things should we make sure to do during this visit? Should we get an AirBnB or a B&B or...? Should we stay in Ajijic or Lake Chapala or ....? How can we avoid common mistakes? How many folks decide to move, then a year or two later realize they made a mistake? Any other questions we should be asking :-)? Currently living in Seattle, WA. Thanks!
Hello all, This is an unusual "last shot" request, but my mother who is 97 years old is at Casa Nostra here and is in her final days. She requested a certain dress to be buried in. We have desperately tried to ship it from Minnesota, but it is not allowed because of Mexican drug enforcement laws. FedEX, UPS and USPS will not accept the dress for shipment. So I am reaching out to see if anyone here knows of someone willing to bring the dress with them in the next few days if they are coming to the area. We would overnight the dress to them. As you can imagine, this has been an ordeal in many ways. My family would be eternally grateful if someone would help us fulfill my mother's wishes. It is a special dress she wore to our weddings, and it means a lot to her. Many thanks, Martha Murphy firstname.lastname@example.org
