Anyone know of a US Notary in Ajijic/Chapala? A name and phone number would be appreciated.

As I understand it, a notary is licensed by the state he lives in and can only practice in that state

Either he or she.... So if one wants their 'document' to be valid, can only do that at a US Consulate.

If you want the document to be legal, you only have two choices: A Mexican Notario or the US Consulate. We always used the nearest Mexican Notario and they are legal for US documents under treaty. They are equally expensive.
There are retired folks from the USA, who may still have their notary seals & are willing to take your money, but they are acting illegally and they know it. They will wink and say, “now we are in California“, or such; but, if the document were ever challenged, both you and the US notary would be the ones in trouble. US notaries can only act in their jurisdictions; not in Mexico.
