Comments, Questions and Answers


Attention. Dog Poison - Does anyone know anything about the sign that says "Attention, dog poison" which is located at the very end of Calle Los Mangos, right at the beginning of the beach access? Very upsetting when I came across it yesterday. More info appreciated. - Marie- Rose Hagen, mhagen [-at-] shaw.ca


Telcel Tower - Does anyone know about the new cell tower on the hilltop in Elias Calles, south of Rancho Nuevo? We have a Telcel modum which up until a week or so ago worked great. Now it's very sporadic--sometimes 5 bars, next minute, nothing. Any ideas or info would be appreciated. - Jim Smith, jimsmith853 [-at-] gmail.com, Elias Calles


Windshield Crack - I am wondering if anyone knows where I can get the windshield of my ford f150 fixed, it has a crack in it that is getting longer and I've heard there is somewhere in La Paz where the crack itself can be sealed instead of replacing the entire windshield. Does anyone know? - Maureen Woodrow, bajamaureen [-at-] hotmail.com, 612 107 7977


UPS Office Now In La Paz (courtesty La Paz Gringos) - UPS has set up shop in La Paz and is open for business. They are located on the northeast corner of the intersection of Forjadores and Isabel la Catolica, catty-corner to the school in a small white strip-mall office complex. (This is about 100 feet after you turn left onto Isabel la Catolica from 5 de Febrero.) I UPSed a letter to Bathurst, NB Canada. It cost $351 pesos. This will arrive on Tuesday because of the lateness of the day. Had I brought it in before 1:30 PM (for both international and national) I would have gained a day. There is no published price list per se. The young man looked up the price to Canada and then New Brunswick which is on the East Coast of Canada. Here is the phone number he gave me for publication to all of you. 612-128-6824. This is a land line. International to USA is 3-7 days. Three days to Texas and 7 days to CA, OR and WA on the west coast and 7 days on the Northern East Coast. You can pick a post card detailing the scheduled service. Don't forget that 1:30 PM is a critical hour for speedier delivery. Hope this helps. - Luiza


Dentist Referral? - Am looking for a referral to a good dentist in Cabo or La Paz - would appreciate any recommendations. Thank you! - Lynn Jaksa, chrispluslynn [-at-] gmail.com, Todos Santos

Our multi-stage, carbon and reverse-osmosis filter systems with built in Ultraviolet sterilizer provide ultra pure water protection for your family.

  • Removes Arsenic, Cadmium, Cyanide, Iron, Lead, Mercury, Nickel, and Other Toxic Metals.
  • Removes Bacteria, Mold Spores, Parasites, Giardia and Cryptosporidium

  • Produces Up To 100 gallons per day of fresh, clean drinking and cooking water.
  • No more heavy bottles and jugs of water to lug home or return to the store.
Reverse Osmosis is proven water purification technology. These systems install under your sink and work as a regular drinking water system.
