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 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.

The road over the mountain is now in good shape.  Only a few pot holes that can be avoided and just a few places on the side that are minor dangerous.   

The checkpoint on the mountain is gone, I think/speculate that is because the drug person was caught, last month LaPaz killings were down to 2 vs the 20 it was getting.   

Garbage pick up arrived last friday. So maybe back on track or every 2 weeks.   I am starting my composting anyway.

New marijuana ruling in Mexico

The Mexican Supreme court has opened the door for the possibility of legalizing recreational marijuana use. On Wednesday, the Supreme court ruled that growing, possessing and smoking marijuana for recreational purposes is legal under a person's right to personal freedom. A professor at the Center for Economic Research and Teaching in Mexico, Catalina Perez Correa Gonzalez, explains this new ruling.

Normally you would go through the border and inspection and go straight through the traffic light, not now, construction! Be warned if you go left at the light you continue past more construction which continues until you end up going up an incredibly narrow and STEEP hill! If you are driving anything bigger than an SUV this is a very dangerous and potentially disastrous way to go, you may have to back down because there is nowhere to turn around. I would highly recommend going RIGHT at the lights because left is a disaster and has no road marking for detours. I don't know what is to the right but it has to be better than going left.

was warm and muggy again yesterday, and we even had a few minutes of rain drops last evening.   did not amount to anything.   This morning was cool.     right now perfect... 

the road over the mountain is not too bad right now, just our 1/3 is in worse shape.   I still drive slow.

looks like the round restaurant is going to be open this year... yee haaa...  

Tony who was operating club ceralvo bar/restaurant this summer is rumored to be opening it.    

I see lights there so the electric has been hooked up, and see from time to time a truckload of chairs and such being loaded in.   If he does this I am hoping he will be open all summer...

No garbage pickup last week, hoping for this week..

another thief in town

Post by dean on Mon Oct 26, 2015 8:48 am

Last night someone broke into a Mexican friends car and maybe tried to steal it, outside of my property.    Possibly when they were not able to steal it they went through it and found her wallet, well no money in the wallet but credit cards and ids were taken.     They also were about to steal the battery and something must have disturbed them as the battery was disconnected but still in place.    I have a motion sensor in place with a light that lights up that area.    and the location is in such a high visibility spot when anyone drives my location.        Over the last year or two I believe when I parked there someone was siphoning my diesel fuel.   I used the truck so infrequently maybe every 2 to sometimes 4  weeks it was hard to tell.    So keep the eyes open up we still have a brazen thief in town.


been thinking and in some years past when the carnival is in town many homes get broken into.    they are here right now.

at about 10pmish a truck drove off the road in  the arroyo below me and flipped.    it was a good 8 to 12 foot drop off.  It ended up on its side.   

While they had the police and ambulance there with lots of flashing lights, a car again coming from the south even with all the lights on can flying around the corner from the campground and slammed into a car that had stopped because of the police truck in front that was stationery with its lights on.    That car got slammed and flipped over.  Only the first cars occupant had to take the ambulance ride.

Since I had more than three kite surf boards and two kites I had to pay a 2000 peso duty. Apparently those are the legal maximums for boards and kites according to my customs agent. Also had to pay two times since the first amount paid I showed to the inspector did not satisfy him even though he was in communication with the payment authorities. Had to unpack and repack the rig in the street too. Almost two hours lost to this whole process.
===================================

Stopped in the big mall that Ensenada Walmart is in, took a taxi into town. While away a person climbed into the motor home and stole a computer. The police came along to investigate and went in and took 2 more computers and 800 cash. This was witnessed by the security guard. The same police came back and took the report and said we could go to the office and file more paper work. Since then have had other concerning comments re: the Ensenada police. Be watchful and don't leave your vehicle unattended for very long.  (unsigned)

i am at a loss, again out of the clear blue sky we got about 1/8-1/4 of a inch of heavy downpour for a few minutes.   A great rainbow out over the sea.  

 It is going to be a jungle.   It was such a hard rain that I may have lost 2 tomato plants that were about 2 feet tall and just starting to bud.      Super  Bummer...

http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-massive-el-nino-is-now-too-big-to-fail-scientist-says-20151009-story.html

Massive El Niño is now 'too big to fail,' scientist says
Satellite images comparing Oct. 1, 2015, and Oct. 2, 1997, show large areas of white, which indicate high sea levels -- a reflection of high sea temperatures. The images show how this year's El Nino could be as powerful as the one in 1997, the strongest El Nino on record. 
 (NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory)







 El Niño that is among the strongest on record is gaining strength in the Pacific Ocean, and climate scientists say California is likely to face a wet winter.
“There’s no longer a possibility that El Niño wimps out at this point. It’s too big to fail,” said Bill Patzert, climatologist for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge.
“And the winter over North America is definitely not going to be normal,” he said

Thursday farmers market is up and running.  

road over the mountain still not advisable at night.  During the day you can not avoid some major pot holes now.  It is just a question of when you are going to get that flat tire.  Or go so slow.  

Was in LaPaz a bit to late so took the road HWY 1 via san antonio.  So much nicer, not a single pot hole till you hit Los Planes to the LaVentana turn off. The San Antonio road has a few spots where you go to one lane, and some vados that have deep sand.     But other than that it is still in really good shape.      So only a mile or two of minor pot holes that route between the turn heading to LaVentana at the end of the San antonio road and the final turn to LV.  And very little traffic with their brights on blinding you after the road turns from 4 lanes to 2 lanes past the todos turn off.   yep does take a little longer to go that way but not much.

still sprinkling, reminds me of a rainstorm in chicago.   It is actually cool here now.  

 Other than the hurricane that parked itself off todos santos for 3 days about 13 years ago, and one winter we had like 2-3 days in a row of off and on rain I do not remember ever getting this much rain.   


My laundry that is air drying  is very rain forest at this point.   

on a bright note with all the kids home in town not playing outdoors we do not have a blimp in internet speed reduction.   Which as noted we use to have a noticeable drop last summer when the kids would get home from school.

still sprinkling at 5pm... all day



still sprinkling tonight.

looks like 1-3 inches depending on where you were.   no arroyo flooding as I drove back from Bay of Dreams.   Inland did not get much rain to flood out any of the arroyos.  I had garbage cans on the property that had about 1.75 inches of water.

been the three most humid days and nights I ever encountered in baja.   With the sun down it it just uncomforable and you sweat.   They are not even the hottest days we had temperture wise, just unbearably humid.   Hits the misery index I am sure.   Just miserable, I feel like I am in Florida, houston or Thailand/orient.    getting in the pool or sea does wonders.  

Glad I have AC.

Bobos are out in force.    

I gave the kids turtles and an Iguana for bringing home all 9s and 10s end of last school season.    I have a old hot tub that use to be a pool that I use for letting the iggi take a swim.     I also use it for bait water for mosquitoes to lay their eggs in.   Would rather have them lay where i can kill them.    

Well had a bunch of the wigglers today from the last rain so was going to empty it, but it hit me...   Anyway decided to see if the water turtles would eat the larvae.   Holy smokes...  From what I could see the larvae were all eaten in about 1 hour.    I will check again tomorrow when the sun is hitting the tub where I can see better.  

anyone need to borrow them?

ran some internet speed tests and posted them under the thread telmex.   We are starting to get people down and no major difference in speed.    And again last year even when the kids would get out of school in town you could notice a drop.     Not this summer at all.    So keep fingers crossed for a good internet season.    

weather was nice again this morning. yesterdays wind did a great job of drying out mosquito hangouts. I have noticed a drop in the numbers already. From me killing 20 a day with a fly swatter, down to now 10.

today seems to be getting windy, maybe our first real wind day, seems like a strange angle.  seems we may be about a month in advance this year.    , yesterday kiters were barely out.  This will definitely dry out the small mosquito breeding areas.  I have noticed a decrease in their population as of yesterday with the wind we had yesterday.  



heard the road from LaPaz to Constitution had one section washed out from recent rains.   so a bit of offroading as the norm.  as noted below a short section.

major moon sept 27...   be on the lookout 
http://www.msn.com/en-us/weather/topstories/sundays-lunar-eclipse-will-also-feature-a-supermoon/ar-AAezzUZ?ocid=spartanntp

Sunday's lunar eclipse will also feature a 'Supermoon'



It hasn't happened in 32 years, and won't for another 18 years: Sunday evening, a total lunar eclipse will coincide with a "Supermoon." 
A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth is between the full moon and the sun. The Earth's shadow covers the moon, which often has a red color, hence the "blood" moon nickname.
Although it's completely in the shadow of Earth, a bit of reddish sunlight still reaches the moon. 
"That red light shining onto the moon is sunlight that has skimmed and bent through Earth's atmosphere: that is, from all the sunrises and sunsets that ring the world at any given moment," according to Alan MacRobert of Sky and Telescope magazine.
The total eclipse will start at 10:11 p.m. EDT (7:11 p.m. PDT) Sunday evening and will last one hour and 12 minutes. It will be visible across North and South America, Europe, Africa, and parts of West Asia and the eastern Pacific, NASA said.
Weather permitting, folks in the eastern half of North America can watch every stage of the eclipse, from beginning to end of the partial phases, with the moon mostly high in the sky, Sky and Telescope reports.

rained yesterday just enough to make the surface wet.


Today again we actually have a good amount of rain coming down.   11:40, started about 15 minutes ago..  

Weeds are going to be major.    This is no longer a desert, we are now tropic.


nicest evening we have had, the wind is dry and coming from the pacific direction.

who wants to be a new mayor...

In LaPaz as mentioned the rumor is the last gov took off with a lot of money so the city is broke what I have read about 60 million pesos in debt.   So many employees have not been paid in 5 months.    Long  before the new mayor took office.       

Well right now in protest I have read people are piling their garbage in his yard.     Anyone want to be a new mayor? next Mayor?

garbage pick up

Post by dean on Fri Sep 18, 2015 9:05 am

still no garbage pick up, may be time to start your own composting systems.    

right now the people are just dumping in the arroyos now.    So time to make preparations for this issue and not have it surprise you.   I have heard rumors that it may be February before the city has the money to begin paying all the workers.   

Time to prepare yourself out the gate so to speak.    If people have experience with composting I am starting a thread on this issue to help us out.

here is an article about the issue it is in spanish and google translate did not do well with this one..

here is the thread link to post information on composting.
