    We know an English speaking local who charges $25.00 (US) per hour to help non-Spanish speakers get things done -- she was a God-send when I first got here! Let me know if you want her #.

    But another BIG HASSLE was registering the car in my name!!! Mostly because it was another STATE, so the license plates had to be changed out. If possible, I would suggest buying a car in the 'state of Q. Roo,' so you don't have that hassle.

    Hi Surendra -- I am Patricia and my husband is Timothy. Call us if you'd like to get together (984-803-3062 house; 984-111-1372 cell). We went to Cancun to buy our Jeep -- but they also sell cars in the parking lot at Centro Maya (a mall) here in PDC. I drove by there this past Tuesday and there were A LOT of cars, so I don't know if Tuesday is a 'big day' there. Anyway -- we had to use pesos, which was a bit of a hassle because we brought a much of US cash with us / it was a Sunday so no banks were open / and we had to drive all the way back to PDC and wait till Monday...but once we struck the deal, the seller went with us to the local Police Station...where there checked to make sure the VIN # matched the car (in general, made sure the car was "OK"). Once the police said it was ok we closed the deal.
