Picture Galleries: Events, Traditions & People of Lake Chapala & Ajijic

If you want to know what it is really like, then looking at our pictures will give you the best idea. We try to capture it all, so in our picture galleries the Lakeside area will come alive. It  is a collection of images from all over town,  divided into two sections: One is “The Lakeside community” which are sets of pictures from daily life around the Lake Chapala area. The other is “Events, Traditions & People of Lake Chapala” which is categorized by date, so the first set is the most recent.

The Lakeside Community

These galleries are placed on our Flickr account, so the images below will take you to Flickr. These picture sets are divided into several sections and categories, some being: Markets, People, food, flowers, trees, churches, activities & more. The pictures bring the lakeside community alive, through them you will be able to step inside our town and see the faces, food, activities and culture this community is all about.

Events, Traditions & People of Lake Chapala

Our community is full of culture and tradition, there is a different festival, event or activity that is celebrated almost every month of the year. Our goal with this gallery is to take you inside these traditions. You will find photos of  Lakeside surrounding towns, people, local events, town traditions and more. We try to keep it updated as much as possible, so come back on a monthly basis to see new sets of images.

    I would like to visit the area sometimes late winter early spring 2016. Is it possible to rent an apartment for about 2 weeks? I’ll arrive from the Baltimore/Washington area. Is it safe for a single woman to rent a car from. the airport to get to Lake Chapala? What is the closest airport?
    I’m looking forward to hear from you.

      Hi Johanna,

      The closest airport is GDL (Guadalajara) and the airport is only a 25 minute drive from Lake Chapala. Renting at a B&B would be the best for two weeks and yes it is safe to rent a car for driving around and exploring the Lakeside area.

    In regards to Johanna’s questions I would like to add a comment.
    I am a single female (50 yrs old ) and have been coming to Ajijic for the past 8 yrs for 6 months at a time and this year (2015) have decided to stay for 1 yr hopefully longer.
    Regarding renting a car from the airport , I found was very expensive, and driving to Ajijic for the first time would be terrifying. There are cabs waiting at the airport for about 8 00 pesos or less will get you safely and quickly to your destination.
    Make sure you have your hotel address and the driver will get you there. Once settled in you can rent a car in Ajijic, though unless you are going a great distance it’s really not necessary.
    Most walk, take the bus 8 pesos, or local cab 50 pesos will get you anywhere within Ajijic
