    Lending to Mexicans?

    After many years here & some difficult lessons learned, I have a golden rule about lending in Mexico: When someone asks you: "Can you lend me?" what your ears should *hear* is "Can you give me?" Only "lend" what you are prepared to never see again; since I adopted this policy I have never had...

    Lukeville, Sonoyta crossing improvements?

    That's always been my concern as well. In Nogales downtown they have the Sentri lane walled off by concrete barricades going back probably 400-500 feet. On most days its easy to access the entrance, but on the days when you *really* need it because the line is horrible it is an adventure to try...

    Turtle at the estuary

    I'm not 100% sure if still the case, but in the past I noticed photos would *only* upload if the size was under 100k (pretty damn small). There are various paint programs where you can save to a smaller file size without losing too much detail.

    Tijuana Flights!

    I have also heard that it is a very cool setup in the TJ airport- you can park on the US side of the border in CA, then walk across the border *directly* into the TJ airport. Then, as you say, you can fly to anywhere in Mexico *without* having to go through customs. If I lived in Southern...

    Tijuana Flights!

    For me its always been a Catch-22; the main reason that PP exists as a major tourist destination is precisely *because* it is drivable from AZ (and to a lesser extent from CA and other nearby areas). But the fact that it is easily drivable for tens of thousands of people is *also* the main...

    Santo Coyote at Encántame Towers

    I know Encántame has been a controversial topic on this forum (to say the least LOL) but we were down last weekend and my neighbor mentioned that the Santo Coyote restaurant was already open and that he and his wife had a nice dinner there during the week. We have been to the original Santo...

    New Resort? Sonoran Star?

    I thought the same thing. The new mayor claimed the project would not impact local access to the beach, but how could it not? Someone has to lose out- either the locals lose easy access to the beach, or the new condo owners will be battling with hundreds of locals littering the beach with tecate...

    New Resort? Sonoran Star?

    Has anyone heard about this? It looks like a sign was put up somewhere around town? There is a website but it seems more like a placeholder for now...

    Lightweight dress pants

    Lemme know if you find a good tailor, I'm tall so get XL or 2XL Hawaiian shirts, but like to take them to a tailor to "slim" them down a little so they're not so billowy...

    Driving to Hermosillo from Penasco

    One note to add to Russ' comments, the toll just north of Hermosillo has been "taken over" by the public for what I think is going on 2 years now- same story with the tolls in Magdalena, Obregon and Navojoa. It would normally be like 80 pesos in Hermosillo, but currently there are usually just...

    In the end, no “hard” checkpoints to check covid status or anything else, pretty much business as usual

    Border Report 3/26/2021 4pm

    Hit the border later than we wanted to friday afternoon, 3:37pm, waited 20 minutes to get to the Mexico stoplight, got the green and then the wave through by the Mexico Marines. Lots of Sonoyta police but didn’t see anyone pulled over, then an uneventful drive to PP, which is a good thing. There...

    New Mexico border restriction?

    For what its worth, the HOA sent that out earlier today. Unclear if the info is from the local health department or from higher up...

    Mayan guards kicked us out of the estuary while we were fishing today.

    In the end, this all hinges on the meaning of the word "access". For example, the only way the public can "access" Sandy Beach (to my knowledge, please correct me if I am wrong) is via Playa Hermosa near Calle 13. Is this "access" sufficient, or should anyone have the right to enter Sandy Beach...
