We are going to visit Tequisquiapan for about a week or so over Christmas. Is it safe? We are flying into Queretaro from the US. What is the best method to get to Tequisquiapan from the airport in Queretaro?
numbr39 replied on November 21, 2014 with:
There are busses that will take you into Tequis from Queretaro. Its a very short trip and definitely worth it! I have friends that live/work in Tequis and they've always shown me a good time.

Are there shuttles from Chapala/Ajijic to Guadalajara for things like shopping at Costco? Alternatively, what does it cost to get a car and driver for a day trip to Guadalajara?
RichardArunachala replied on November 21, 2014 with:
What about the cost of a 2 passenger car with a driver that does not speak English? This should, I think, be less costly than a van with bilingual driver.

Thanks Sid. I guess you are a "go to guy" for many questions about Chapala.

Talking to someone here in India that also is thinking about moving to Mexico, they say that they will not consider the Lake area because the lake is too poluted. What is the real story? I read a similar comment here in this group. Thanks.

Are there any English daily newspapers? Even with the internet, we enjoy the daily papers,. In India where we live now there is enough English that there are several good English papers. HOw about Mexico / Lake Chapala?

Thanks. I checked out the store on line and it looks great, just the place to find the Western food item not available in Mexican stores.

wafa posted What are the MUST SEE & DO in Puerto Vallarta on the Mexico forum on November 18, 2014:
Coming for the first time to Puerto Vallarta as tourists for 2 weeks February 2015. Am looking for suggestions as to what are the "must see" and "must do" for this area. We're older and retired so not into night clubs. More into tucked away extraordinary places, culture, museums etc. Also interested in any tips or hints as to what is the best way to get around Puerto Vallarta too. Anything appreciated!

Someone please recommend a clean, moderately price hotel in Ajijic that is near downtown and in a safe area. Thank you. Jane Rush
Qakwan replied on November 17, 2014 with:
I can vouch for the Casa Blanca in Ajijic, under new management for a couple of years and utterly lovely. About five short blocks from the carreterra, three from the main plaza, two from the malecon. However, as others have noted, you have many fine options. You're not going to find an "unsafe" area.
Plumo replied on November 17, 2014 with:
I fully agree with you on that about the cleanliness

Cozumeldeb replied to the thread Seeking Merida insights on the Mexico forum:
mannem initially posted:
Hey, all. Helping friends research possible snowbird stay in Merida, where I have not been so I'm hoping for some experienced info. What do you think of the Inalambrica area? There's a nice big house available there for a good price. Are there any good public markets there? (There will be major cooking going on.) The house is 4 or 5 blocks in any direction from bigger roads, with restaurants etc. I assume that means it's quiet. Does that also mean it's inaccessible? Is there any reason to avoid the area? Does it have any secret highlights we should know about? Thanks for any and all responses!
Cozumeldeb replied on November 17, 2014 with:
Agree Yucatan Living.com is the best resource for the Yucatan area...they have a sister site called Yolista.com..I think, but sure you can google it..kind of information exchange/buy/sell site..lots of help..This area has grown by leaps and bounds..beautiful city, large city and busy, if that is what you are looking for..some beach towns have popped up in the past few years..mixed reviews on that from what I hear...if you are a beach/water fan this is not where you want to be..head south past Playa..several of those towns are developing..Coba etc..we live in Cozumel and love it..good range of rental units and growing ex-pat community..

Laperro initially posted:
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
19naia replied on November 16, 2014 with:
No reply here in a while.... In and around Sayulita is the backwards approach.. Sayulita is part of being In and around Puerto Vallarta... So Sayulita would be a small beach town tucked into a nice cove, slow simple life and a haven for Canadians in the know... Sayulita can be more expensive than puerto Vallarta or cheaper, it depends on what you go for in terms of available options... Sayulita can be slim pickings when the high season is in, but with time you can negotiate for a long term good deal nice location.. Puerto vallarta is also a nice option and not too expensive unless you want it to be, they have 5 star resorts or little shacks for cheaper.. Use Craig's list examples for a price range, go to Craigslist Puerto Vallarta and get a view of places and prices.. Winter listings are higher $ than summer time.. So make your long term choice in the summer low season when more vacancies are there... It can be around $400 for decent 1 bedroom or studio efficiency with basic furnishings and livable comfort all inclusive.... Location preference is best learned walking the streets and knowing the area in person.... If you want to be frugal, you can get places for less than $400 a month, $300 is possible while not being too far into the Mexican peoples average lifestyle... Even cheaper if you dont mind adapting to living out of the tourist areas among the locals.. Sayulita is not just right outside of Puerto Vallarta, it takes a little bit of driving or bus riding to get there from PV but its the closest beach town hideaway from PV... So place Sayulita prices at PV prices and thats a good start... The real deal options are out there but you have to get in there and mingle and make the move when the winter crowd isn't filling every niche up with their willingness to pay the premium...
