    I want to recommend a real estate agency that specializes in Mexican Caribbean properties. They specialize in properties down in the Costa Maya and also have a fair number of listings in the Riviera Maya. These guys are Americans and, of course, speak perfect English, but they know the area well. They have an office in Playa del Carmen and another in Houston, Texas. And they offer mortgages for Americans on Mexican properties (which is a new thing).

    But the reason I'm recommending them is because I know them personally and I know that they REALLY know what they are doing and are HONEST. There are so many people pimping real estate here and some large percentage of them are shady. But these guys have integrity. Please feel free to contact me if you want more info.

    Here's their info:
    Mexira: Mexican Caribbean Real Estate and Financing
    US Tel: (713) 344-1712
    MX Tel: (984) 803-5013
    Web Site: http://www.mexira.com

    Adding to the list of local services, YZA Farmacias has a delivery service 24 hours a day. Excellent service for those of us with kids who get sick at the worst hours, or don't have a car. Nothing like being at home with a sick toddler and no way to get medication! They are fast and efficient, one of the only delivery services I've encountered that actually has a decent computer system, ie, we just tell them our phone number and they have all our info. (Now why can't the pizza places get on board with this?)

    YZAtel Medicamentos a domicilio 886 6035

    From my personal experience, Hospiten almost let me die when I got a surgery because I couldn't reach either the phone or the bell, I was tied upright to the bed, I had to unplug my ... what is the name already, that takes blood from the scar.:evil:

    The surgery was performed by Dr Rafael Velazco, who (I learned later) was just out of jail, and probably went back later. I have heard other horror stories, which I will not report. :doh:

    Amerimed was wonderful last year when I got a salmonellosis, although they wanted to keep me overnight uselessly. But they saved my life, I was totally dehydrated. :D

    I would like to get your opinions about insurance companies. :?: I have 2 very bad. I had a policy with INTERACCIONES when Wilma visited us. They never gave me a centavo for my damages. I made a complain at the Condusef, to no avail. (no icon for Arrrggg....?)

    I insured my car at MAPFRE TEPEYAC, I sold it about 6 weeks ago and asked for the return for the left time. I went there maybe 5 times, the check had not arrived yet.... until I call Mexico where they said there has been no cancellation!!!

    I contacted Lewis&Lewis, but they are very expensive. They gave me a higher price (for Qualitas) than Qualitas themselves here! My new car is insured with Atlas(good price), and my apartment with Metropolitana (not cheap), but no hurricane = no damage = no experience yet.

    I have a very good experience with some carpenters, but they are in Temozon. I think it is worth going there. Very good jobs, good prices. :D. All in Cancun I contacted (Thanks Wilma!!!) were very bad. Some works are not finished (and will never be).

    I will be seing Dr Oriol tomorrow.... and not for a baby.

    A friend of mine just recommended him to me also as a specialist of cancer matters.

    I cross my fingers. She told me, unlike Steve, he is rather dry, but I really don't care. I ask him to be very very good. He charges $600 now.

    Insurance for cars with foreign license plate

    I can recommend the following insurance broker for cars with foreign license plate, I think, it´s the cheapest on market:

    Luis Lobo Cancun, Quintana Roo
    sucursal Av. Tulúm No. 192 Loc. 24-B Sm. 4 Plaza Tropical
    telefono(s) (998) 884-9640

    The insurance ist from Comercial America and the broker is making it through internet and you pay with you card (credit o debit).
    We are for years with him, we pay for 1 year only 2400 Pesos (only third party liability).
    Once we have had an incidence and it was our fault, the insurance representant came inmediatly and fixed it without any problem with the third party.
    :lol:

    Just wanted to re-recommend my dentist:

    Dr. Mauricio Grassi
    American Smile Clinic
    Nance #17, SM 25
    tel: 887-4521
    cell: 044-998-154-5255

    He speaks English, Spanish, Italian and I think French. I just saw him again and have to say his attitude towards dentistry really makes me comfortable going to him. He does what's needed and doesn't over-diagnose just to make money. Also he doesn't hurt me and I have sensitive teeth.
