"From the minute we walked in this place it felt like home. The brightly colored walls decorated with Mexican pottery and original artwork, a very well equipped kitchen, hot water and plenty of it ! It's a 5 minute walk to the lake ( a popular place for bird watching in the morning) and just around the corner from restaurants, shops, and the plaza which is popular in the evenings for families and ice cream. It's about a 10 minute walk to catch the bus to Chapala or Guadalajara. You can also walk to the Tues. street market.The top of the stairs is a little awkward and you have to be careful. Mexican architecture seems to put an extra step into every room. Is there an occasional rooster crowing ? dog barking ? fireworks or a strolling group of locals singing to the Virgin Mary at 5am ?? Yes ! This is Mexico. They have a passion for their culture and fiestas. A perfect choice for those who don't want a car, like to walk, and want to experience the charming village of Ajijic."
