Pay your water bill before February 28 to get the discount. Water bills went up substantially.

Bring an extra $ 1,000 pesos with you. Bills are up 25% over last year!!!

Lat years bill $ 4,590.... This years bill $ 5,670. pesos. It's getting more expensive than the US.

Mine was no more expensive than last year but I live in the Jocotopec jurisdiction. I have two houses and each house was 848 pesos. Do you have a pool?

Well, ours went up substantially as well this year. From around $2500 Pesos to $4750 Pesos. Quite expensive actually and, in the Chapala municipality, no discount is granted to foreigners, even those with "inmigrado" status, who are elderly like this old fart. That´s illegal in a country whre equallity of all folks is supposedly a God give right but what the hell. Chapala pulls this crap because it can.

Down in Chiapas, where we also live, we receive a 50% discount as FM-2 holders on everything the municipality delivers as should be the case in Chapala. Our property taxes last year on a house worth about the same amount of money as in Ajijic, were about $250 Pesos ( vs. around $2,500 Pesos in Chapala) and our water bill was miniscule.

I don't understand why it doubled! Mine went up a tiny amount in San Juan Cosala which is part of Jocotopec - a few dollars US. Do you have a pool also?

Mine was 1720 pesos. 2 baths & my realtor sort of lowballed the yard I have (he told me that later) since it seems grass ups your water rate. I heard a man telling one of the employees there that his yard was all cactus with no grass. So I'm paying the same as a family of 4 since my house could easily accommodate 4. I wish they had meters...
