The lake town is continually being updated. Enjoy the plaza and the local drink “Tajuino” and ice cram de gaffa.

Both Chapala town, and Ajijic (much smaller, an enclave of expats) make good escapes from the frantic pace of Guadalajara city. Both towns have promenades along the lake, from where you can admire the birds. The lake looks muddy, not the blue water color you see in some pictures though, but the views of the surrounding hills are pleasant. Along the Ajijic promenade there is some shade. In Chapala, the vendors lined their stalls in the shade, but the promenade itself is in full sun. The time I was there in January, the temperature was perfect (mid-70F). You can cover both Ajijic and Chapala town in an easy day trip from Guadalajara on the public bus. Ajijic is only about 15 min bus ride from Chapala, and a little over 1 hr from Guadalajara.…

Took a tour with GDL and was able to see Lake Chapala, Scorpion Island, Ajiiic and eat lunch at the lake. Nice time to travel in August. .
