I am moving to Queretaro and I need to buy a car for my wife. I understand that I can't get financing because of my limited credit history in Mexico. I can also buy privately and/or buy a car outright and not finance. Any one have any other options or ideas on how an expat can purchase a car? Thanks, Enzo

We are in Ajijic, MX and just purchased a new Nissan March. Great little care. Good basic transportation. About $13,200 USD.

janedarling posted sales jobs available in Lake Chapala??? on the Mexico forum on October 23, 2014:
I am contemplating a move to Lake Chapala. My husband is Mexican so getting residence is not a problem I have extensive sales experience in advertising, real estate and insurance. I also have experience in internet content marketing (blogging and posting). I would like to find a job in the Ajiic or Lake Chapala region, near my husband's family in Mexico City. Does anyone have any contacts that I could try?

Hi, we just moved to the Conchas Chinas area. Can anyone suggest a good cable or satellite tv company. We seem to have trouble getting SKY to show up and was wondering if there are other alternatives. Thanks!

Slingbox, many folks are using it where we live, Cozumel. High speed Internet is required, then back home u hook the slingbox up to a "dedicated" cablebox, Dish, Direct, Comcast or whichever..if u are full timers down there then pay a family/friend to have extra box for u.,think monthly rate is $5. Needs to be dedicated box, otherwise u changing channels would interrupt US tv..Google slingbox, lots of blogs about it as well, describing exactly what gear is needed.

Cozumeldeb, can you please explain this? We can stream from a US TV rather than Netflix etc? How does that work??

Does anyone know about bringing a car into Mexico when in the process of applying for residency status? Will they force you to import the car? which I am told takes a week and the need to impound the car while processing.

I'm a 53 yr. old Canadian guy hoping to relocate to Mexico (with my beloved dog..;) I receive about $1000 a month. Sounds like there are a few great little towns around Sayulita where one can live well and happy on that. I'd love to hear from anyone doing so, or who has done so. Thanks

Chrisdark initially posted:
help. I am so confused. Wehave friends in Mazatlan they said don't worry come down. Internet tells me differently. We are going to rent in mazatlan 6 month trial. Want to bring one truck with minimal belongings, trailer with two Harleys , 2 dogs. I have read so many conflicting internet to keep things simple. How many bikes can we bring ? One per person? Do they have to not be street legal? What is the estimated total cost to expect crossing the border and ariving in Maz? Car fees ,visa fees ,tolls etc. Early 50s couple, not on retirement.income requirements ? Desperately wanting to live the lifestyle, need advice. Thanks

Just came back from Mazatlan. Heading back in November. You will need to stop at kilometer 21 to pick up visas and vehicle permits, make sure you have titles to all vehicles. If you have lien holders, you will need to get a release to take over the border. They will need a deposit 400 American dollars for a deposit on permits. We were pulling a trailer, about 340 American dollars for tolls and fuel. It's 780 miles from Nogales border .San Carlos is a good half way point, 2 days travel.
Number13 replied on October 13, 2014 with: I believe you can trace your route to calculate your total toll cost. I don't know about the other issue, but I would contact your local Mexican consulate. I have read where some have gotten all items verified before leaving which made the crossing much easier, but I don't know it for a fact.
