I love the size of Ajijic (Lakeside) – you really don’t need to own a car here. I love the friendliness of the local people. Of course I love the weather, walking on the malecon (pier) and having such a sophisticated infrastructure for ex-pats is a bonus. The support system is phenomenal! Any information you could ever want or need is right here at the Lake Chapala Society. You get to create your own life here – live in town, in a gated community, in the country – whatever your heart desires! I love the international nature of our community, filled with artists, artisans, musicians, writers, such fascinating people from all over the world -so rich with culture. I can’t imagine living anywhere else!
