How’s that for a play on words? The Vacation Rental, Property Management, Real Estate Company known as “Vallarta Escapes” based in the Banderas Bay area is branching out all the way to Ajijic, Lake Chapala. Just outside of Guadalajara, Mexico
Ajijic is a small artist community just south of Guadalajara located on Mexico’s largest fresh water lake.
After 7 successful years in the Puerto Vallarta, Banderas Bay area, Vallarta Escapes got the itch to work in an additional area. Many vacationers have come to Vallarta Escapes looking for the Mexican charm of yesteryear, when Puerto Vallarta was a charming village with just the right combination of playtime, delicious food time and a bit of rusticity. Ajijic is the Puerto Vallarta of years past.
The weather in Ajijic is wonderful. Warm in the summer and cool in the winter. The town is 5,000 feet above sea level nestled in the Sierra Madre mountain range. Most accommodations have fireplaces to heat the room and your romantic heart.
There is also the charm of water. Whether it is the tranquility of the Banderas Bay, the rough surf of the Pacific Ocean or the crisp lines of Lake Chapala most people are drawn to be near water. The lake is 34 feet deep at its maximum.
There is a large community of retirees in Ajijic that creates a wonderful and supportive environment. English is spoken by most people. The Indians around the lake bring artistic talent to the area.
Marina Vera Soria, Rental Manager of Ajijic Escapes says “What a blessing is to live in this part of my Mexico, the Mexico I returned to after many years abroad… the mountains, the lake, the year round color in flowers, in trees, in birds; the markets, the food… the peacefulness . Ah, but the people… all the people… native and non native, different languages, different looks, different customs, different perspectives, but all in an agreement: what a blessing is to live in Mexico…”
“Ajijic, Lake Chapala is an awesome Vacation Destination!”
Two books of interest tell the story of Lake Chapala. Dane Chandos, an American writer, moved to Ajijic before World War II and wrote both books about life there: Village in the Sun (1945, G.P. Putnam’s Sons), which is about his efforts to build a house on the edge of the lake, and House in the Sun (1949), which is about his operation of a small inn in the house.
Just as in Puerto Vallarta we have an array of properties to suit everybody’s desire. From affordable hotels to expansive villas, there are delightful places to stay and enjoy. One of my favorites is Villa San Francisco. Here is a link to information:
