Mexico Medical Tourism

Hi Everyone,

 

I am sure that many of you that have been living here in Mexico for quite some time now have come across that 1 Dr that just left you in awwww. The one Dr that you want everyone to come see in Mexico, to help others. If you could please share your experience and Dr's information with me I would really appreciate it. I'm tired of these Medical Tourism websites that continue to refer Patients to.. Not only Dr's they don't know but countries they have never even…

HOW TO RELEASE A MOTOR VEHICLE FROM THAT PESKY TEMPORARY IMPORT STICKER.

When we drove back down from the US in September we drove our van and towed a flatbed trailer with my Mitsubishi GT on it. Since we plan to leave the Mitsubishi in QRoo, we had no more need for that big trailer and didn't want to haul it back and pay double tolls. We had a Canadian buyer for the trailer but it was attached to the permit for the van, meaning we couldn't leave Mexico without it. We went to Pto Juarex and talked to the helpful lady at Banjercito. She could not cancel the permit… Continue

FM3/ Huge fines.........anyone else going through this?

Hi

We are Canadians and when we left here in Feb. 2010 we made sure everything was in place for our renewal in May 2010 with a notary here in town.

We are now hoping to appeal to the Mexican government about our situation. Has anyone else had problems. You can email me direct at: diamondranch@hotmail.com if you prefer. The fine…

Why Mexico!

 

suggested Ensenada, Mexico. On occasion we had driven from our home in Tucson to Nogales, Sonora but that was a border town and not the Real Mexico. Of course Nogales had its charm and the restaurants and shops, the Oaxacan children selling Chiclets and so on but that wasn’t enough. We took our friends suggestion that we should vacation in Ensenada and the adventure began. When we crossed the border into Mexico from Chula Vista, CA, that’s when the love affair…

Christmas Concert in Ajijic, Mexico with Los Cantantes del Lago

 

Los Cantantes del Lago , a choir of both very talented  foreigners and Mexicans practice diligently  to bring the Ajijic community an inspiring Christmas Concert at the local auditorium. Two sold out performances. Perhaps there should have been three. The linked video gives you just a taste of the quality talent we have in the area along with a few members of Guadalajara’s Philharmonic Orchestra, just forty minutes away.

The Los Cantantes del Lago just add…

Is There Violence in Reynosa?

I got an email from George asking for someone who knows what is what to post about 'violence' in Reynosa (on the Texas border near McAllen, where I live). Apparently some woman wrote hime who claimed to live there and said it 'was as bad as Cd. Juarez' and that '200 people had been killed by the cartel' in one night. Complete and utter nonsense.

 

I get so angry with people who spread these malicous lies. All they are doing is killing the livlihood of the good people who try to…

Crime and Safety in Mexico- by Area

 

Most of us in Mexico get annoyed at the overdone media “bad news” we hear about “Mexico” –

the country, when most of it pertains to isolated or specific areas of the country. Yes, Ciudad Juarez, at the border, in Chihuahua, is a very troubled area with rampant drug related crime. We never suggest Americans or Canadians visit or cross the border there.

However, look at the attached map; there are many green and yellow areas of the country of…
