Since Tuesday, December 1, 2020, the town of Ajijic, located on Lake Chapala, has been declared the ninth Magical Town of Jalisco (Pueblo Mágico), granted by the federal tourism government.
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.
Ajijic, is a magical town of creation, inspiration and connection with nature, where you can enjoy the magnificent climate most of the year. Many say it is the best climate in the world!
It is located 40 minutes from Guadalajara (the second largest city in Mexico), surrounded by mountains and the beauty of Lake Chapala, with its streets full of color, with its beautiful murals and cobbled streets, restaurants, galleries, shops of clothes, inns, cafes, etc.
The community of Americans and Canadians who reside in there, make it a cosmopolitan village, full of culture and art, a rest destination for those who come to retire.
