Notice To All Vacation Rental Owners In Todos Santos And Pescadero - In November the state government sent officials to close all Todos Santos and Pescadero houses, hotels, and B & Bs operating illegally. They were prepared to evict guests, and place banners on each place indicating it was closed. The Todos Santos and Pescadero Hotel Association intervened and requested they not take action due to the negative impact on tourism. The government agreed, but stated that it will return to close illegal establishments and that the Hotel Association will not be able to intervene. To legalize your lodging establishment, the following may be required. Please contact your accountant or lawyer:
  • Register with the tax bureau (Hacienda)
  • Obtain a corporate tax identification number (RFC)
  • Obtain a state permit to function as a commercial entity
  • Pay 3% hotel tax (a state tax)
  • Pay IVA of 16%
  • Pay ISR taxes of up to 35%
  • Register with the water and electricity companies as a corporate entity
  • Comply with civil protection laws (safety codes)
  • If you are a legal registered and tax paying entity. Leave copies of your documents with your renters so they can show the authorities.

John is a computer expert and 'jack of all trades' who likes to keep busy (eg. has even learned how to repair water valves on our tinaca) and is currently consulting with a local internet provider. Laura is working at being an artist, and figuring out what else she would like to do in retirement... We have a complementary set of skills including all aspects of home maintenance; computer application/programming and website maintenance; general small business management; good with people...

Local references, no criminal history, valid driver's licenses, transportation, no drugs, kids or pets...professional, reliable, honest, dependable, conscientious, clean (John was a Boy Scout ;-)

My mother always advised that "if you leave things better than you found them, you will always be invited back".

2 Hour Massage - Hello, My name is Jared and I am a 27 year old gringo currently living in La Paz. I was trained by a woman who has been doing massage for 30+ years, and she considers herself more of a healer than a masseuse. After experiencing a massage at a local Spa, I realized how unfulfilling the experience was. Too short, and not nearly deep enough. It's impossible to do a proper massage in just 1 hour, which is why I am offering a 2 hour massage for just $1,500 pesos / $115 USD. email: JaredClass [- at -] gmail.com - Jared Johnson, JaredClass [- at -] gmail.com, 831.247.2060, La Paz

Amazing Pool Eliminator - A swimming pool, spa, or large fountain is often your highest energy consumer after air conditioning. The Pool Eliminator will cut this energy cost 50% while extending the life of your main filtration system. The patent-pending Pool Eliminator uses completely safe copper and silver ions to purify water, allowing you an 80% reduction in purchases of harsh pool chemicals. The ionization process also reduces Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), precipitating hard water minerals to gradually eliminate scaling on your pool tiles and water features.

The 100% solar-powered Pool Eliminator is the only all-in-one ionizer and pool filter pump on the market today. The scientific facts available conclude that a combination of chlorine plus the copper and silver system is a proven, safe and economical approach to purifying water in swimming pools and spas. The new dual disinfection method is also easy to implement. This allows a considerable margin of error for maintaining a sanitary pool.

Introductory price is $994 USD or $12,900 Mexican Pesos. No other product in the world has a faster payback time - months, not years. - Charles Shipman, info [- at -] pooleliminator.mx, pooleliminator.mx/, (612) 145-1061, Baja California Sur
