New Requirements for Bringing Foreign-Plated Cars into Mexico: Banjercito
Posted on June 17, 2011 by yucalandia

The Mexican Ministry of Finance and Public Credit has issued a new decree affecting expats bringing foreign plated cars into Mexico: “New Requirements for Bringing Foreign-Plated Cars into Mexico: Banjercito”. From the Banjercito website:

“IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
The Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP) has issued a decree which states that beginning on June 11th, 2011 anyone applying for a temporary import permit for vehicles must make a deposit in the amount determined by the following table:

Vehicle Year Model:…….Amount to be paid in Mexican Pesos*
2007 and later…….USD $400
2001 until 2006…….USD $300
2000 and earlier…….USD $200

*Peso amounts are based on applicable exchange rate

This deposit is compulsory and can be paid by credit card, debit card, or cash (in US Dollars only).

Users must keep in mind that if the deposit is charged to a credit card, the charge will be made in Mexican Pesos and will be calculated based on the exchange rate of the day on which the payment is made. This deposit will be refunded to the same credit card on the next banking business day after the vehicle is fully returned and based on the exchange rate of that day.

The vehicle must be returned on time and within the time period stated on the temporary import permit. If the vehicle is returned after the stated time period, the entire deposit amount will be transferred to the Office of the Treasury on the day following the expected return date, as allowed by current law.”


Last Item:
Another clause in the new updated regulations requires FM2 Rentista and FM3 holders to notify Aduana within 15 days of when they renew their FM2 or FM3, otherwise Aduana is allowed to confiscate/keep these “new” deposits. Aduana’s address is listed in Yucalandia’s main article on cars in Mexico: “Importing & Driving a Car in Mexico”

* * * *
This post is meant as a public service announcement (not meant as legal advice), so, we here at Yucandia will keep the post updated with further understandings and clarifications as they develop.

'Noise quenching' curtains open window to quiet

'Noise quenching' curtains open window to quietPost by dean on Thu Jun 02, 2011 11:06 am
Water, I have tasted it when not brushing my teeth and it is not salty. My meter reads about 1750 ppm which is about 1000 ppm less of what we use to have. But the taste tells me it is it is lower. My meter reads correctly on bottled water about 40ppm so not sure.

bookmark this site/thread as I will add pictures and issues from time to time.

here is a picture of one of the water tanks by the shrimp factory that will have the de-sal water. you will bring your own jugs here to fill up. a real watering hole...

right now they have the de-sal hooked up to the city water, our water is good but not great, 560 ppm disolved solids. I was told by the workers the plant can do 300 cubic meters per day. that is probably about 1/2 our requirements in the summer and 1/3 when everyone is here. I was told another well will be dug for the desal plant. also they ran a three inch line to all these tanks.

here is the tank in progress picture


here is the first structure being built in the campground by a comercial business. note the total area via the orange markers.


second commercial business in the campground. not sure, coffee or taco stand. white building to the right of the gate.


the first arroyo to the north of the campground, the new concrete fence with barbwire to stop people from parking there?


and finally in parting, we had a real cloudy morning here a week or so ago, this is the sunrise...




and lastly here is my suggested air seperation piping to keep water bills low, i have a discussion of it in the water section under building in this forum.

New U.S. consulate opens in Tijuana

New U.S. consulate opens in Tijuana
Spacious compound is more efficient, secure than previous location
http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/2011/jul/18/new-us-consulate-opens-in-tijuana/



TIJUANA — Long lines of visa applicants have for years been a fixture outside the offices of the U.S. Consulate General in Tijuana, hub of one of the busiest American consular districts in the world. This week, the lines have suddenly vanished, even if the activity hasn’t.

After 47 years in the same location near the Caliente Racetrack, the U.S. government has moved across town, on Monday opening offices in a $120 million gated compound built near the Otay Mesa border crossing. The imposing stone structures — with more than 100,000 square feet of space in the main building — are intended to offer both greater efficiency and tighter security at a time when the consulate’s role has grown increasingly complex.

http://tijuana.usconsulate.gov/ncc.html
Visas to the U.S.

Consulate General Tijuana is moving! As of July 11, 2011, all nonimmigrant visa interviews will be held at our new facility at the following address:

Paseo de Las Culturas s/n
Mesa de Otay
Delegación Centenario
Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico 22425

the below star is old location... it does not show oon this map go to the link.

wow more funds for fixing our roads....

Post by dean on Tue Jun 28, 2011 8:27 pm

A recent article states the road from todos to cabo will be finished this year. And a alternate road will be made from the SJ airport to Cabo, no date specified.

AND best news is funds for our area…..


http://www.bajagoodlifenews.com/2011/06/new-highway-and-road-improvements-for.html

Perez Jacome advised the Governor that other funds will be available to improve routes including Zaragoza-La Purisima, Cuidad Insurgentes- Lopez Mateos, El Sargento- La Ventana and La Paz- Los Planes,

note they just finished about 2 miles of the really bad part on the mountain side of LaPaz.

Mexico's $8 Billion Power Projects may cut California Emissi

Post by dean on Fri Jun 24, 2011 8:16 am

And this is timely, today in the baja news
I hope the Baja Sur people in government catch onto this and get some of thse companies to do the thermal reflective down in our neck of the woods, to minimize our fuel burning power plant and stabelize our power costs. they have gone up by about 50% in 10 years.



Mexico's $8 Billion Power Projects may cut California Emissions
by Baja Daily News (BDN) on 06/24/11

Mexico expects foreign investment in renewable energy to almost triple this year
to $8 billion, helping U.S. states such as California to slash carbon emissions,
said the head of the Latin American nation’s investment promotions agency.

The Fast Track lane is still working great and that means considerably shorter wait times! We have heard that the wait is about 25-30 minutes - YAY!

There are presently 24 north bound lanes and 6 south bound lanes. When construction is completed there will be 35 north bound and 19 south bound lanes. In addition, the 35 north bound lanes will be double stacked that is they will have two inspection booths per lane so as to be able to process two autos at a time totaling 70 cars. The estimated time savings for crossings is a whopping 500% improvement. Presently the average waiting time is 90 minutes, which will be cut to 15 minutes. And the lines at peak times will go down from a high of 2.7 miles to under ¼ mile..

Post by dean on Mon Jun 20, 2011 1:17 pm

the baja is a perfect place for reflective/thermal solar systems. It is considered one of the top places in the world for making use of the suns energy. PV (photovoltaic) is just too expensive and will degrade in a expected 30 year life. whereas the reflective/thermal plants are good for 50-100 years. Baja could begin solar farming of electricity and ship it to the mainland and or the USA. properly set up I bet these could provide shopping center shade. LaPaz could be the first city to mandate electric vehicles because the power is so cost effective. LaPaz could become the Solar Energy University and offer degrees on all aspects of this technology. In general LaPaz loses its best engineers because there are no real engineering jobs in the non-manufacturing area of the baja. This would create long term clean good paying jobs in the baja, thousands of them... Our electric costs in the baja for second the main tier rates are about 27 pesos with tax per KiloWattHour. or about USD$0.25. In the USA the average for home use is about USD$0.10 San Diego for the high rate is USD$0.14. And in the USA commercial rates are even lower. The USA gives a substantial discount to businesses. In Canada the delivered cost of electricity is about 7 cents per KWh. The cost to make electricity is as low as 2 cents a KWh made by nuclear power plants. And diesel plants being the highest. after that there are transmision and distribution fees. these fees are the equipment which is a standard around the world for wire transformers, no one has discounts here. As we know in the USA the power company linemen/installers employees make top level union wages. In the baja I have no idea what the costs are of the employees. The new installations of solar thermal with US labor costs for set up in the USA are delivering power to consumers at USD$0.14. this is in a return of 20 years and these plants will last for 50-100 years so the price will be substantially less. Isn't it time baja begins setting up these farms and selling the power to the USA and mainland Mexico?

Baja sells renewable fruits and vegetables so why not farm electricity and bring in quality jobs that last for a hundred years that do less damage than agricultural farming does and help the US and mainland have clean energy and become energy independent. the details are posted below in the next posts.


i have started a thread for this specifically with the sources for those numbers. go to the following link for the information

recently while driving past Santa Rosalia i noticed, hard to miss as you are coming south as you hit the water a huge mine operation, and I say huge..... i thought maybe it was another gold mine. But it appears to be a gypsum mine... good for them...

from a baja paper.
http://www.oem.com.mx/elsudcaliforniano/

MACOVI inaugurates production plant gypsum for agricultural use in Santa Rosalia
Gov. Mark Villaseñor said Covarrubias Mulege will not escape with federal, state and municipal levels to achieve economic recovery.

also the town just south of GN with the two gas stations now i saw a huge mine operation in the distance from hwy 1, (you can see it to the south of the town at night, it is lit up like a glowing city). I asked a local and he said that one is a gold mine and about 900 workers are there. now we know why there are two gas stations in a tiny town and a 6 lane road.

low cost cell phone and plan works USA and Mexico

Post by dean on Mon May 30, 2011 11:22 am

I recently purchased an att "go phone" pay as you go cell phone up in the USA while I was there. I went on the US plan of $2.00 a day for unlimited calls. while I was up there in the USA I was able to call mexico with it for $0.26 cents a minute. When you get on this plan it automatically allows mexico you do not need to sign up for anything else for it to work down here also.

After returning to Mexico I tested it and was able to call here in mexico for $0.25 cents a minute. And they did not charge me the additional $2.00 a day use because I was not in the USA for the unlimited calls. So this is a very good deal for those of us who do not live on our cell phones and do go up to the USA for trips.

I bought the this phone for $20.00 and it had $30.00 of credit (so 15 days of use in the USA included). and only pay the $2.00 when I actuallly use the phone (get a call or make a call, the phone can be on but if you do not answer it does not count as a day). With that plan, it is active for 3 months and then i have to add credit, if I do not add credit in that time I lose my credit and i get another month or so before the phone number is lost. If I add $100.00 of credit it is active for 1 year and i have $100.00 additional credit. If you add credit in a timely fashion yyou do not lose your old minutes that were not used.

and you can add credit online and see your entire detailed calling and account online. (lets say you lose your phone, well you can see where the calls were made)

Post by dean on Mon Jan 17, 2011 10:49 am

baja insider
Finally, a side note that February 4-6 is an election weekend in Baja Sur and sale of alcoholic beverages is restricted in all but Cabo San Lucas. The elections will not interfere with La Paz Carnaval, which this year comes late and will be held March 3rd through 9th. We will have more details on Carnaval La Paz in upcoming issues.

I teach basic steps for Swing, Waltz, Cha Cha and Night Club 2 Step. You will learn how to feel the music not think it so you can be able to create your own steps.

theft deterrent

Post by dean on Mon Jan 10, 2011 10:20 am

Theft deterrent, one of the best defenses to theft is if all items are engraved. Crazy Pacos has a engraver that you can bring your items to and engrave them with your name and phone number. this is for free when you do it yourself. For a small fee 10 pesos per item generally you can drop off the items and Paco will have them ready generally the next day. You can also arrange to borrow the engraver overnight after 2 pm returned by 7am, a security deposit is required but no fee. I have read about some people who had items stolen that the police would not return because positive ID could not be made even though the people knew it was their computer. This should or could solve this. So engrave your battery on the inside and other places with your name. Same with cameras and so on. The engraver works on all plastics and most metals. See Paco at Crazy Pacos at poco@crazypacos.com

Hola amigas/amigos,

Saturday is launch day for Mujeres Ayuando a Mujeres - Women helping Women. At
the Holiday Arts and Crafts Event on Saturday, Dec. 11th at El Corazón Cafe we
are launching our products called: Con Sabor de la Baja - A taste of the Baja.
This is a line of ´exotic and liquor based´ jams, jellies, marlamades and
chutneys all made with products recognizable as ¨Baja¨. I can´t believe the
results. Neither can Max. His comments - clear winners!!

Currently I am working with a ¨graduate¨ from the gov´t sponsored crisis
Shelter. She is learning a new skill and getting paid for her time at more than
she is making ironing clothes in a Plancharía.


On Saturday we are featuring Strawberry Margarita Jam, Strawberry Mango
Daiquiri, Apple Jalepeño Jelly, Apple Mango Chutney, Grilled Pineapple, banana
and Kahlúa chutney, and if we can get the jars tomorrow - Tequila Sunrise Jelly
- a product reminiscent of Todos Santos, the Hotel California, the Sunrise Cafe
across the street from the Hotel.

Our labels will be bilingual - Spanish (Con Sabor de la Baja) and English (A
Taste of the Baja). Note that the designer has included the LOGO on each of the
labels. (She is redoing the English labels to reflect A Taste of the Baja)

I´m preparing recipe ideas for these products. One is: Apple Mango chutney (2
tbs.) mixed with 1 package of softened Philidelphia Cream Cheese, 1 tbs. curry
powder, 1 tbs. ground cumin. Mix well. Top with Apple Jalapeño Jelly -
Result: To die for!!

Don´t believe me?

Ask Alejandra and she will tell you about how she made up a batch for herself,
locked the bedroom door, put on the TV and ate the whole thing herself without
offering any to José Miguel (our Mexican grandson)


Please come by on Saturday Dec. 11th at El Corazon Cafe AND the park across the
street to see our 39 exhibitors - including Mujers Ayuando a Mujeres - Women
Helping Women.

Better yet - these make great corporate gifts and souvenirs of the Baja for your
friends and family back home. Granddaughter Natasha will get to take some back
to Ottawa in March.

Thanks to all for your support along the way.

Luiza

Subject: Re: [LPG] Re: Launch of Mujeres Ayuando a Mujeres (Women helping Women)

Constitucion) and across the street in the Park. Mujeres Ayuando a Mujeres will
be in the restaurant courtyard. Do come by to sample these delightful " tastes

December 13, 14 - Geminids Meteor Shower. Considered by many to be the best meteor shower in the heavens, the Geminids are known for producing up to 60 multicolored meteors per hour at their peak. The peak of the shower this year should occur on the night of December 13 and morning of the 14th, although some meteors should be visible from December 6 - 19. Some estimates say there could be as many as 120 meteors an hour visible from dark-sky locations. The radiant point for this shower will be in the constellation Gemini. The Moon will set early in the evening setting the sky up for a spectacular show. Best viewing is usually to the east after midnight.

star search

Post by dean on Wed Dec 08, 2010 8:57 pm

vv
December 10 (Friday): Astronomer Miguel Angel Norzagray Cosio will be at the Science Fair in El Sargento from 5pm till 8pm. Telescopes will be available for viewing the night sky. If you have a telescope, bring it along. As darkness descends, the Great Square of Pegasus will be overhead. Though the square looks empty, through a telescope, along the middle of the shortest side (the one facing west) there are stars on either side of its center with recently discovered planets circling them. Between the square and Cassiopeia (the W-shaped constellation below the square), and faintly visible to good eyes under darkest of skies, is the Andromeda Spiral Galaxy, our nearest sister galaxy some 2,500,000 light years away, which contains more than a trillion stars. The planet Mercury will just be setting in the SW. Jupiter, with its many satellites, will be high in the SW sky, and just to its west will be the five-day-old crescent moon. Orion, with its famous green nebula, will begin rising in the east around 6:45 p.m. Saturn will not rise until 2:17 a.m. on the 11th, and the bright morning star rising at 4:15am is the planet Venus. Pray that Zeus or Orion will turn out the street lights and other unshaded outdoor lights so that the Milky Way will once again be visible from this area. TS

Battery recycling

Post by dean on Wed Dec 08, 2010 9:41 am

Battery recycling: The program is now officially being sponsored.

We now have a name for Pacos new coffee stand it is Crazy Pacos. Next to Crazy Chelas is the location. Paco has agreed to be in charge of all dead batteries. Bring him dead batteris of any kind from rechargables, likecell phone batteries, tooth brush, tools, any kind of device that was rechargeable. Please cut the tooth brush open and remove yourself, but if you can not do it we will still take it and do it ourselves. This includes hearing aid batteries, toy, regular dry cell, alarm and we will also take car truck, motorcycle, atv and any one you can imagine. Any batteries that show signs of leakage, please put them in a double plastic bag sealed. And also separate the rechargeable ones from the non rechargeable ones.

Now as a special incentive for you to get the ones from your neighbors and also include for the hassle of explaining to your friend who does not speak English, for every 10 batteries you bring to Paco he will give you a 10% discount on a cup of coffee. Remember our water that is used for showering and the reverse osmosis is collected in essence right below the garbage dump. Crazy Paco’s hours as of this notice at the coffee shop and for taking batteries is 7am to 2pm and then again 4pm to 8pm; 7 days a week. Please do not drop off batteries when he is closed.

Paco will be looking into collecting all dead florescent lamps and what can be done with these. So please do not throw these away for now, hold onto them to see what we can do with them, these contain mercury that could end up in our water too. Dean 114-0202 if you have a question.
