Hello Everyone, This October we are considering relocating to Merida or thereabouts. Any info on services such as costs and quality for dentists, auto repair, getting home repairs completed, average cost for utilities for two people, internet service quality and cost would be appreciated, etc. Also once we get settled and decide to plant roots which is better to own or rent? Are homes on sewers or septic? Any and all info is appreciated so don't be shy. Muchas Gracias! Jerry and Yvonne

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

What do you do if they are Police Impersonators?Put your car in drive and slam the gas pedal?
A reader replied recently with:
All good advice. However, what to do if you determine the officer is not whom he says he is. Citizens there are disarmed, which is unfortunate. How do you defend yourself?

NOK2mex initially posted:
IS ANYONE AWARE OF PERSONS BEING JAILED FOR BRINGING IN A LARGE QUANTITY (ONE YEAR SUPPLY) OF PRESCRIPTIONS MEDICATIONS (NON-NARCOTIC THYROID MEDICATION) FOR A FRIEND? I CAN SEE CONFISCATING THE MEDICATION, BUT HAVE DIFFICULTY BELIEVING THAT A PERSON WOULD BE INCARCERATED. A LOT OF TROUBLE FOR A MINOR OFFENSE!
NOK2mex replied on October 26, 2014 with:
BTW-- WE NEED THE MEDICATION IN A 5 MICRO GRAM DOSE. IN MEXICO ONLY 25 MICRO GRAM OR LARGER DOSES ARE AVAILABLE. IF WE COULD PURCHASE IT HERE WE WOULD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Does anyone have any contacts that I could try?

retireready initially posted:
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!
Cozumeldeb replied on October 23, 2014 with:
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.
Firefly48 replied on October 23, 2014 with:
Cozumeldeb, can you please explain this? We can stream from a US TV rather than Netflix etc? How does that work??
