    Mail Delivery

    A while ago a much less expensive service operated out of a shop across the south side street from Leys. The American+Mx woman ran a good business until the Burrito Express people decided her 20.00/mo service was contrary to their interests. They shut her down, with some help from US Border...

    Buying and Renting Condo

    Congratulations on buying on Sandy Beach. I believe you will do well. We bought for 238,000 in 2008 and have done very well. Pablo Davila is the best for what you are doing. He personally owns condos on Sandy Beach . If he does not reply promptly, email him until he does !

    Trip Report Oct 16th.

    Unless Mx now offers pressure treated lumber, import or smuggle it in. Never rots and termites won't touch it. If what you have now is still serviceable, brush on used motor oil. End of sun and termite damage.

    Guaymas creates artificial reef for scuba diving

    Over the last 30 yr in the NW Wa and SW Bc we have witnessed the sinking of 3 ships for the purpose of creating artificial reefs. They should be carefully cleaned of anything toxic.

    Trip report Aug 8, 2020

    Unfortunately, corruption and having no fear of repercussions from illegal activity has become part of the culture for so many Mexicans. The children all know what is happening, and they see how easy it is to carve out a basic living without education and little work. It will take many...

    I love the woods too.

    This is a great area of NM...the Black Range of mountains in the Gila National Forest. My husband's cousin's grandmother had a couple hotels there....in the towns of Kingston and San Lorenzo. Back then prostitution was legal in Grant County, so she did well. Then something bad happened: the...

    New Rules for Las Conchas Beach use ??

    LOL...naive, broken wave. Your advice is nonsense. You may have not spent much time here in the last 10 years...no ? Mordida is based upon the " foreigner opportunity " that presents.
