ART AT EVERY STEP

Beautiful Magical Town located on the shores of Lake Chapala.

The word Ajijic comes from the Nahuatl language, Axixic, which means "place where water springs forth." This beautiful cobblestone town with some colonial structures has become the destination of thousands of foreigners mainly for its climate and beautiful landscapes.

Its history dates back to pre-Hispanic times and it is a cultural icon of Mexican "charrería" and Golden Age cinema. Thanks to its beautiful colonial architecture, it is a popular destination for romantic tourism.

It is located on the shores of Lake Chapala, where a sense of harmony and relaxation permeates the air, just 40 minutes from the Guadalajara International Airport.

Enjoy its adobe houses with pitched tile roofs, country houses, and cobblestone streets. There are several shops selling typical crafts where you can buy beautiful souvenirs.

Between 1930 and 1940, Ajijic became one of the preferred places for painters, writers, and sculptors influenced by artists who drew inspiration from Chapala, such as Agustín Yáñez and David Alfaro Siqueiros, among others. All these intellectuals visited the picturesque town and gathered in an old tavern.

The artistic influence can still be felt, as Ajijic now has the highest number of galleries in Chapala, with a schedule of exhibitions and cultural events that covers every month of the year.

Ajijic has a cosmopolitan atmosphere where more than 18 different nationalities coexist, which is reflected in its diverse restaurants offering various cuisines, as well as its vibrant nightlife with fun bars and cantinas.

One of the most anticipated events is the balloon regatta, which has a tradition of over 50 years and takes place in September. People bring their balloons made of tissue paper.

It is located 55 km (an hour and a half) from Guadalajara.
