Mexico’s New and Improved Telephone System

[ffb_param route=”o gen text”]For those familiar with the cumbersome telephone system in Mexico, there’s good news. In August, the country’s Federal Communications Institute (FCI) implemented substantial changes to the dialling process by incorporating a uniformed 10-digit format similar to what is standard in the US and Canada.

No longer are special prefixes required between landlines and cellular phones or calling a cellular phone from outside the country. It all works seamlessly together. Finally.

See the chart below detailing the changes.


Back to Work!

Here it is, the first working day of September after a long weekend. Actually, Labor Day in Mexico was not yesterday for here its celebrated on the 1st of May. One of the advantages living here is many of the holidays celebrated back home in Canada or the US are often celebrated here. Along with all the Mexican holidays, it can add up to a lot of celebrating.

A great example of enjoying each others holidays is Thanksgiving. If you’re Canadian you celebrate in October while Americans celebrate in November. Mexico doesn’t have a Thanksgiving but the lucky expats of Puerto Vallarta along with many of their Mexican friends enjoy Thanksgiving not once but twice each fall. It’s all about the turkey!
