After the ICE guys left, we picked up our friend, Catalina, and drove to San Marcos to hand in our signed Caja form (for health card). There was a long lineup this time so we had to wait patiently. It was hot and muggy with those funny blue fluorescent lights that I hate so much. But it is what it is. We didn't have the same woman who served us last week, which we were kind of hoping we would just so we wouldn't have to explain our situation from scratch (well, Catalina wouldn't have to explain). The man behind the desk was nice and very helpful (we found out he's one of our neighbour's cousin). He did some calculations and saved us $8 a month. Instead of $60/month we now only have to pay $52/month. We like that!
So, as a recap ... ARCR was going to charge us $452/month which even I (math hater that I am) can figure out that we're saving $400 PER MONTH just by doing the legwork ourselves. If pays to have friends who will help, too. Thank you, Catalina!! If you're looking to relocate here (or anywhere I imagine), a little homework can save you a lot of money.
