How far is it to the shopping areas?
There is a drug store across the street from Hotel Villa Montecarlo. Villa San Francisco and Chapala Inn hotels are located downtown Chapala and there are different stores and pharmacies in the vicinity. The main shopping street and daily market in Chapala are less than a mile away from Villa Montecarlo. That main shopping street also dead-ends into the lakefront and there are many vendors stalls and some restaurants and play area parks along the boardwalk/beach area of the lake front. You may walk, take the bus or call a cab from reception area. A cab will cost about $5 USD each way. Alternatively, Ajijic is located 5 miles away and it has exquisite art galleries and dining options. A cab to Ajijic will cost $15 USD each way.
How may I book extra days at Hotel Villa Montecarlo?
If you plan to arrive before Tuesday July 17th or to leave after Saturday July 21st (for example, attending an optional excursion on Saturday) you are encouraged to request additional hotel nights during your registration. You can also contact Miguel Hernandez at firstname.lastname@example.org to book your room ahead of or after the event if you did not do it during registration.
What about passports and visas?
The US government requires you to have a US passport to fly back into the US and US airlines require you to have one to fly to Mexico. Your passport should have an expiration date that is at least six months after your entry date to Mexico. Your Tourist Permit Visa paper forms and instructions will be provided to you on your international flight to Mexico and you provide the document you filled out and your passport to the Mexican immigration officials after landing. On most US based international flights your head tax for entering Mexico is included in the airline ticket price. If you are crossing in to Mexico by land other options are available to you regarding your travel to the interior. Contact Peggy Shinn in New Mexico at email@example.com, if you plan to cross the border on land and travel via Mexican domestic airline and need information.
What about special dietary needs for the included meals?
Please contact Miguel Hernandez at firstname.lastname@example.org after you have completed your registration and paid to communicate to him your dietary needs. Please note that, except for the last night Gala dinner, all meals are served buffet style and the chef does include sufficient vegetables, fruits and non dairy and non-wheat items to provide a hearty meal from those components. You are on your own honor to select what is best for your nutrition and avoid the other foods and dessert tables if they contain ingredients not on your food plan. For the Gala night plated meal we will be taking orders on Thursday for vegetarian plates.
