In the 1950s, Ajijic had a population
of 6,000. Today that figure has gown to 15,000. It is still considered a hospitable
haven, drawing the adventurous from every corner of the globe. It has the
greatest concentration of expats in the Lakeside area.
Its streets are narrow, paved with cobblestones, Most homes are behind stone or brick walls, many with surprisingly spacious grounds. The sounds of the village are everywhere - church bells, horses' hooves, the loud speaker of the gas truck, the bell of the water truck, the musical theme of the ice cream man, and calls of various other vendors. Ajijic continues to retain its Mexican identity, while at the same time catering to tourists, with hotels, B & Bs and restaurants galore - more, probably, than in any other Mexican village of its size.
