Wow! Thanks so much for these amazing replies. And yes, one of the things that I did love about Lakeside was the friendliness of the people who live there and your helpful attitude is a great example. My friend and husband were tireless and amazing in taking us all over everywhere and being the perfect hosts! The casita was lovely and we had such a good time that now we want to explore it further.
It is through friends like these that the "great people" find their way to your little corner of paradise. And yes, I was warned that May was hot...and indeed more than ever this year, I believe and well into June also. Meanwhile, here outside of San Diego (noted for its great climate) it's like frying eggs on the sidewalk weather, (over 100 F this weekend) and you guys are enjoying under 80s all week. Can't wait to get there again!

Come and enjoy! Most of the fun is exploring and finding out how things work and where to find things :)

This is the best in-a-nutshell advice you can get. 

I also moved here from No Cal and have never looked back. It's a good life. 

Learn basic Spanish conversation asap, talk to everyone, people are friendly, let us know when you get here. Have fun!

September is, in my opinion, the very best month to visit, especially mid-September. Independence Day is the 16th, lots of fun stuff happening the week leading up to it including the Regata de Globos which is probably the single most fun event of the year. I believe it's held on the Saturday BEFORE the 16th. Not to be missed!

A lot of whether you freeze or fry in winter or late spring before the rains come can depend on how your house is situated. I moved here from the Caribbean and have 2 fireplaces, neither of which has been turned on in the 7 years I I've lived here. I also don't have A/C and the ceiling fans are enough for me but everyone is different.

Coming from where I did I think most everything is cheaper, even electricity. A lot of people are horrified by Super Lake's prices (local store that sells a lot of imported goods) but shouldn't be. It's probably because most of them have never lived where imported items are needed. If you live in a major metropolitian area now, chances are the store owners don't have to jump through the hoops of customs brokers, etc. to get merchandise here.

How you want to live and where you come from will determine how expensive you think some things are here. CanuckBob made a good point about that.
