Destination guide

Escape to enchanting Ajijic

Surrounded by the dramatic peaks of the Sierra Madre Mountains, Ajijic is a laid-back town on the banks of Lake Chapala. It’s a firm favorite with North American expats who flock to soak up the sunshine, stroll its colonial-era streets, and explore a myriad of artisanal cafes, organic juice bars, and upmarket restaurants. With Ajijic vacation rentals you can stay in the heart of the town center, with beautiful breezy casitas complete with private pools, lush gardens, and colorful Mexican decor.

Things to do

Live the expat life in laid-back Ajijic

Flanking the central plaza, the Ajijic Cultural Center is a great place to get your bearings. It’s run by a friendly team of locals who organize yoga classes, cooking lessons, cultural talks, art sessions, and more. Every Wednesday Ajijic throws its colorful “Tianguis” market where you can stock up on everything from fresh coconuts and organic avocadoes to charcoal soap and bohemian jewelry. Craving a little more action? Nearby Guadalajara is a short bus or car trip away, and harbors destinations like the Teatro Degollado Opera House.


From cobblestone streets to Chapala Hot Springs

While Ajijic is popular with tourists, it’s managed to retain much of its characterful, colonial-era atmosphere. Its cobblestone streets and central plaza are lined with sorbet-colored buildings housing an eclectic mix of galleries and boutiques. Head to the waterfront to find a tree-shaded esplanade, perfect for strolling or mingling with locals. You can also take a soak in the natural hot springs that dot the shores of Lake Chapala. To savor a little privacy, why not escape to an Ajijic vacation rental property? With sparkling pools and stunning lake views, they’re the perfect way to experience Ajijic like a local.


A winter haven in the Sierra Madre Mountains

Thanks to the area’s low elevation and proximity to the equator, Ajijic vacation rentals enjoy beautiful weather throughout the year. Winter brings clear skies and mild temperatures that see flocks of vacationers descend on the lake. If you want to beat the crowds then why not visit over summer? While rain storms do roll in, the weather is wonderfully balmy and the sunsets are kaleidoscopic. The town’s year-round expat community keeps things upbeat and energetic, even in low season.

Natural features

Lakeside-living in La Floresta

Hugging the north shores of Lake Chapala, Ajijic is surrounded by Mexico’s Sierra Madre Mountains. The Malecón esplanade is beautiful, but if you want to see the lake from an alternative perspective why not day-trip to Isla de los Alacranes? Ajijic vacation rentals unlock access to a string of beautiful properties in the heart of La Floresta, Ajijic’s most coveted neighborhood. Dotted with garden villas and airy haciendas, here you can enjoy a morning coffee in a sun-dappled courtyard fringed by lush mango trees, fragrant orange blossoms, leafy jacarandas, and fiery birds of paradise.
