Ajijic .... A Gay & Lesbian Friendly Village in the Heart Of Mexico
San Andres Church, Ajijic, Mexico, 1920
Ajijic, on the north shore of Lake Chapala, has long been known as a village of artists, and has now been named as one of the best places to live or retire in Mexico (International Living Magazine, AARP). The near perfect weather, the beauty of Lake Chapala and the Sierra Madre mountains, the friendly people, the infrastructure and the relatively inexpensive real estate market have made Ajijic one of the most sought after places to retire in Mexico.
Lake Chapala is Mexico’s largest fresh water lake stretching 50 miles from end to end and 13 miles across. Small villages dot the shoreline on both sides of the lake, each offering it’s own charm. The north shore of the lake, from the town of Chapala to the western tip of the lake where Jocotepec is located, is commonly referred to as Lakeside. It is in this area you will find a large concentration of Canadians and Americans that have chosen to retire in Mexico.
Ajijic has a population of about 10,000. Like most Mexican towns, the plaza is the center of town.A walk along the cobblestone streets in any direction from the Plaza will take you past jewelers, artist galleries, and countless restaurants. A walk through Ajijic feels like a journey back in time, but with many of today’s amenities.
