I fell in love with, Ajijic, this little village beside Lake Chapala on my first visit some years ago. With its friendly local and ex-pat population, artistic community, some great restaurants, wonderful views and an almost perfect climate – what’s not to love. Above is a work by local artist, Efren Gonzalez whose stunning murals can be enjoyed as you wander the cobble-stone streets of Ajijic. Click on this link and read a first-time visitor’s impressions and why they decided to make Ajijic their new home.
Mexico is an endlessly fascinating country and should be on everyone’s bucket list who love history, culture, art, traditional artisan work, stunning and varied scenery, fascinating colonial towns, maya pyramids with some amazing murals,an extensive biodiversity and a friendly and welcoming population . It’s why I go back every year and have made it my mission to introduce as many people as possible to the joys of Mexico.
