“Fascinating Lake Chapala”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Since I moved to Lake Chapala from a very scenic location in the United States, it makes sense for me to love the place. Having put my residency cards on the table, let me talk more about the area. The Ajijic area, my personal favorite area on Lake Chapala, has many fine restaurants, entertainment and lovely views from many places. As I like to say: "It is a little piece of paradise."

“Really lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This is a great setting for a day trip from Guadalajara. I especially enjoyed the San Francisco de Asis church very near the water in the town of Chapala. Along with our lunch on the shore of the lake in Jocotepec.

“Pretty scenery, Great food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We used to live here. We loved walking down the waterfront and enjoying the music on the weekends. The local coffee houses are good as are many of the restaurants. It is a quaint town with an American/Canadian touch. You can get by without Spanish. There are many English speakers

“Nice place to chill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Basically a place to have a beer and just relax, there are many restaurants around so a day´s visit is more than enough

“Once is fine but enough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Lake Chapala highly overrated. Lovely and good weather but not much to do, little culture. Mostly great if you want to interact with other Americans and Canadians.
