Where is it?
The village of Ajijic, just 30 miles south of Guadalajara airport, is on the largest lake in Mexico.Ajijic is famous for its safety and cosmopolitan atmosphere. While Mexican life revolves around family and church, the expatriate community finds so much to do in the area, from golf, tennis, horseback riding, hiking and other sports activities, to art groups and fine restaurants.
The village of Ajijic is colorful, with a central plaza, an old church, cultural center and delightful shopping. Cobblestone streets are everywhere. A malecon (walk way) runs along the lake for beautiful sunset walks.
There are cinemas, a small theater, a bike path running along the north of the lake. We are about a mile above sea level which keeps the temperature moderate,always sunny and warm;
Guadalajara is only 40 minutes away by car, with all the shopping you might need: COSTCO, Sam's Club, Walmart, and wonderful restaurants....also PF Chang, Chili's, Australian Outback Steak House and other USA restaurant chains.
Other colonial cities are close by, for wonderful visits.
The Pacific Ocean is only three hours away.
