Ajijic is fast becoming the favorite area in which to settle on Lake Chapala. Just a few miles west of the town of Chapala, Ajijic is a charming lakeside village that has retained all of the charms of Old Mexico. Ajijic is beginning to attract more visitors than all of its neighbors, yet Ajijic retains the timely quality of an early day stagecoach stop. This is a great compliment to this charming little town. Horses and donkeys are still used for daily transportation and the siesta hour is still a very important part of everyday life.
The cobblestone streets and shady sidewalks are a haven for the children of the town who play soccer, hide n' seek, baseball or stickball on the streets as much as in the parks.
