That may be the same truck I watched come up the Caracol Pen a few minutes ago.
Not sure how much they would have left in their truck tank after dropping a load at the hotel.
On this topic, does anyone know where these guys get the water they deliver by truck? Some of it that I have seen was pretty dirty looking.  Just wonder where it comes from. ??

We just saw three water trucks along the way to the Santa Rosa market from Caracol. Also saw a lot of people buying water. I have not seen this much activity before for water.

You live in a desert, so water is scarce to begin with - and, you live under the rule of leaders who do not care to spend funds to maintain public utilities - and, Who do not care to even send monies back to the community. Hopefully San Carlos will not grow to much larger.

The easiest solution is a prepaid water infrastructure tax on new RE of say 5% of the predicted tax assessment - want to build a us$300K house - pay $15K up front as part of the building cost.

Here is the official pose of all accountants who get hired at the state or Federal level in Mexico.



It's simply amazing how many governors are on the lam for embezzlement in Mexico. But what is even more amazing is how the accountants "manage" to miss it, somehow...........blinders are relatively cheap in Mexico, apparently.

Ultimately, it is Federal money that is granted to state institutions that is granted to municipal institutions that funds water infrastructure. If skimming occurs all along that route, well, you end up with more important "leaks" than in the pipes.

Impact fees, YES!


They should make them retroactive back to the year 2000. That way the Nice Folks who burden the infrastructure that I had 25+ years ago would have their water and I would still have mine.

Why raise taxes until there is some semblance of fiscal responsibility?


Otherwise, it's the same old, same old.

Me too! My first 20 years here, I didn't even have a tinaco. Always had water, and the pressure was good. I should have realized what was happening when all of the government housing was putting tanks on their roofs. What an obvious sign......of things to come.
