I visited Ajijic and of course I went to the lake. The Malecon was very quiet (Monday morning). People were walking their dogs or exercising by the lake. I met different birds and horses while I was walking by the lake. Very nice and peaceful.
If limited on time, the walkboard is a pretty nice place to enjoy the view and the atmosphere. A body of water is always welcoming and a great place to relax. It features several restaurants and small shops selling snacks and desserts. A pretty popular snack is a plate of "charales" (small lake fish) with some lime and a bit... 更多
I expected something very different. Lake Chapala and there are no two ways about it is dirty. Even the surroundings are not clean with lots of algae and basura (dirt and trash) around the edges. A little government money to fix it up would do wonder.s

According to the locals there are no water sports (other than tourist boat trips) and no fishing. And up close it is green and brown, especially in Chapala. The lake attracted me enough to consider retiring and... 更多
This is now officially one of my favorite places in Mexico. Only one hour by car from Guadalajara, to Lake Chapala is serene, beautiful place. The water halcianth is beautiful, despite it being non native and likely invasive. Here in ChDespite it being non native and likely invasive.

Like most places - good and bad. Cost of living - good. Weather - great. When we were there the lake was in pretty bad condition: very little water and some kind of water plant choking out fish. I understand Lake is beautiful now and lots of water. Mexican people are mostly extremely poor - but for the most part... 更多
