Re: The Real Deal Regarding Mexican Visas...

So here's how it works, so pay close attention (fijense bien) because the physical mechanics of this toast are crucial. OK, maybe crucial is a bit much, but the motions come with the phrase.

At each step, be sure to "clink" or touch glasses.

"Arriba" (Literally translates to "up". Glass held high, you touch the rim of your glass)
"Abajo"
(Literally translates to "down". Glass held low, you touch the bottom of your glass)
"Al centro" (Literally translates to "center". Glass held out in front, touch the middle of your glass)
"Pa' dentro or Adentro" (Literally translates to "inside". Drink from glass immediately, bottoms up!)

Simple, right? Well, I say you head to the closest cantina (bar) and practice this until you get it right.

Re: The Real Deal Regarding Mexican Visas...

The people are the most generous of Spirit, kind and helpful.Whenever have had the pleasure to visit...I and we have been treated like gold,as is in CUBA.

short story...

A traveler came upon an old farmer hoeing in his field beside the road. Eager to rest his feet, the wanderer hailed the countryman, who seemed happy enough to straighten his back and talk for a moment.

"What sort of people live in the next town?" asked the stranger.
"What were the people like where you've come from?" replied the farmer, answering the question with another question.
"They were a bad lot. Troublemakers all, and lazy too. The most selfish people in the world, and not a one of them to be trusted. I'm happy to be leaving the scoundrels."
"Is that so?" replied the old farmer. "Well, I'm afraid that you'll find the same sort in the next town.
Disappointed, the traveler trudged on his way, and the farmer returned to his work.
Some time later another stranger, coming from the same direction, hailed the farmer, and they stopped to talk. "What sort of people live in the next town?" he asked.
"What were the people like where you've come from?" replied the farmer once again.
"They were the best people in the world. Hard working, honest, and friendly. I'm sorry to be leaving them.""Fear not," said the farmer. "You'll find the same sort in the next town."

Re: The Real Deal Regarding Mexican Visas...

!'m with Zee on this Mexican visa situation - and, generally, living the good life there in Mexico.

Here's an experience with Mexican officialdom that we found absolutely delightful:

During our Mexican travels we found ourselves in La Paz, BCS, when it again became time to renew our FM3 visas. We'd gotten hold of, and completed, all the forms and had our support documents. So. Comes our turn at the window and we're struggling a bit with the Spanish. But the young lady was patient, giving us time to find the words. When she spoke to us it was slowly and in short sentences, with easily (by us) understood Spanish. So. All works out and we're gathering our stuff to leave. The next chap in line was (forgive me for saying this, but...) a rather loudly spoken and arrogant American. Demanding this, and that. The young lady listened to him for a few moments and - in perfect English, mind you - responded and set him straight. My wife and I looked at each other and smiled. I wanted to get and present a bouquet of flowers to that young lady!

Attitude, my friends...attitude. That and at least TRYING to conduct official business in the host country's language will bear good fruit.

The longer-term visa requirements are spelled out and posted by Zee. Those requirements seem neither onerous nor impossible to meet - or at least they should not be for most cruisers.

But that's just my opinion based upon our experience with Mexico officials. Original FM3(s) at the consulate in San Diego; renewals in Mazatlan; 2nd renewals in La Paz, BCS.
