Ajijic vacation rentals

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 caf_s, 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.

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.

Attractions In and Around Chapala

First time in Chapala and looking for places to see? To appreciate the outdoor scene, make time for green spaces such as Mezcala Island, San Juan Cosala Boardwalk and Parroquia del Senor del Monte.

You can take a shopping trip to Centro Laguna Shopping. Also while in town, consider a visit to Crafts Market and Jesus Gonzalez Gallo Cultural Center.

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.
