Her advice will be invaluable and probably all you need. Yes, the big daily, El Diario, does have local classifieds in the print edition, and on the weekends they become quite expansive in all categories. The online version seems to be using a third party classified system, however, and I'm not seeing local ads there. I wish I had more time to look but you can give it a try using the link. Christmas is a great time to come.I am not coming because of a job. I would like to retire somewhere close to that area in the next few months to be close to my girl friend that lives in Juarez. She will be helping me also in finding a house. I plan on visiting there in December. I will look around when I get there. I wonder if in the local newspaper if they have new homes listings on Saturdays like I see every Saturday here in San Diego. That would make my search much easier.
