If you are interested, please reply to this post.
Mexico: Ajijic Questions:

1). What percentage of the streets in Ajijic are cobblestone ?
A). Do these cobblestone streets have lots of ruts ( uneven sections ) ?
2). Can toilet paper be flushed down the toilet ?
3). What is a typical internet speed ?
4). In the past 12 months, have there been temps above 90 degrees ?
5). How many banks / ATM's are there in Ajijic ?
6). How many grocery stores are there in Ajijic ?
I would appreciate anyone who has lived in Ajijic for several months or longer, to please respond.
Thank you in advance..........
Guatemala: Shuttle Van To Panajachel:
I'm planning a trip to Panajachel in March and I'm looking for a shuttle van driver that can pick me up at the Guatemala City airport . I'm not interested in riding on the chicken bus
If anyone knows of a good dependable driver that can take me from the airport to Panajachel, I would appreciate a reply, and if you have their phone number, that would be even better.
Guatemala: Transportation Questions:
I'm planning a trip in the next 90 days to the Antigua / Lake Atitlan area to do some research as a possible long term retirement location.
Once i arrive in Guatemala City , are there any other options to get to Antigua / Lake Atitlan besides taxi, shuttle , or the chicken bus ?
Are there any private airplane services that would fly from Guatemala City to Antigua or Lake Atitlan ? I realize that a big 747 jet is not going to fly into these area's ; i'm thinking more of a smaller propeller type with limited seating .
Any information would be appreciated..........
Guatemala: Questions - Lake Atitlan:
I'm 63, just recently retired, and planning a trip this fall to Lake Atitlan as a possible long term retirement location.
A few questions for those who are retired and living in the Lake Atitlan area long term.
1). Regarding clothing, how do you wash your clothes ( hand wash, washing machine, local laundry, other ) ?
2). I'm looking to rent ..... How did you find your rental ( local posting, real estate company , other ) ?
3). Do you pay your bills ( rent, electricity, internet ) , online or do you use Guatemala currency ?
