It’s Official: I Am Old

It’s official:  I am now old in Yucatan, MX.  Well, actually, it should be official tomorrow.  I will be applying for my ‘Mexican Old Fart’s Card’.  At age 60 (and I am beyond that milestone) you qualify for a senior citizen discount card from INAPAM (Instituto Nacional de las Personas Adultas Majores … or National Institute of Older Persons).  The card is free of charge, and entitles the bearer to deep discounts on everything from transportation to prescription drugs.  For instance we’ve been told that the ADO bus company extends a 50% discount on all bus tickets, and pharmacies usually extend a 10% to 15% discount on all prescriptions.  Even AeroMexico offers discounted airfares with an INAPAM card.  I can suck up my pride for those kind of discounts no problem.

  1. Welcome to the CLUB !!

    You also get 1/2 price ferry tickets to Cozumel. Free entrance to ALL Mayan Ruins and Mx Museums. PLUS … 1/2 price Xcaret tickets !!

    BUT … ADO only sets aside a few 50% off seats … so buy your tickets days before !!

    Congrats, Ron and Crystal
