NEIGHBORHOODS IN AJIJIC
(click on any page to enlarge)

The village of Ajijic is the center of most of the activities of the North American community. Once a sleepy fishing village on the north shore, it has since been discovered by the rest of the world. Writers such as D.H. Lawrence came and were inspired, as did many musicians, actors and dancers. Some of entertainment's famous stars, such as Elizabeth Taylor and Charles Bronson once came here to escape the hectic pace north of the border. The Ajijic, Lake Chapala community is a haven for many artists who still find inspiration being surrounded by the natural beauty of Mexico.

The village church which is dedicated to San Andres (St. Andrew), the patron saint of Ajijic and the little chapel were built in the 1500's and are located on the plaza square. The church was rebuilt in 1749 and is referred to locally as the 'new church'. The traditional plaza square is the center of local fiestas and is always busy with families on Sunday evenings. The cobblestone streets date back to colonial times, and provide totally recyclable paving material today.

Wednesday is market day in Ajijic, and you can find the local Tiangus (street market) complete with everything you might need. In addition to the most beautiful display of fruits and vegetables, you'll find flowers, clothes, pots and pans, jewelry, tools, pizza, hand carvings, paintings and just about anything you can imagine.

Near the center of the village is the Lake Chapala Society which features a huge tropical garden setting, located on the former estate of the famous writer, Neil James. The Lake Chapala Society is a non-profit organization chartered under Mexican Law as an Asociacion Civil. They currently have over 3,400 members from over 31 nations. 

Throughout the village you will find many fine restaurants, hotels and B & B's. Enjoy browsing the numerous designer boutiques, shops and art studios/galleries. Buses and taxis are available but are sometimes held up by the occasional burro carrying a load of goods for his owner. Enjoy the new refurbished lakefront walkways and parks on wonderful morning walks.
