You know Ajijic has some of the best year round weather in the world, but experiencing the 400 year old cobblestone streets of this charming Village first hand is even better! It's about location, location, location. More than climate and charm, this quaint Mexican Village has the services and amenities that you would expect in a modern luxury resort.
Only 30 minutes from Guadalajara International Airport, Ajijic is home to the largest U.S. and Canadian expat community in the world.
Why rent a room or pay the expensive rates at a B&B when you can LIVE for a little while in the most desirable part of Ajijic, in a quiet area near the center of town. There is nothing like the charm and convenience of living in the Village!

Only 4 blocks from the Lake Chapala Society and six blocks from the Plaza.
Lots of restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries, cinema, live entertainment, florist, antique shops, unique galleries and artisan shops within a short walk. No car necessary! A fifteen minute stroll will get you anywhere and everywhere!
