El Parque Real Estate, Rentals & Information

One of the top 5 most desired gated communities in the Lake Chapala area, due to its concept, common areas and overall location. El Parque is a 114 home development started back in 2002 and located at the center of San Antonio Tlayacapan a subdivision of Chapala and with in very short walking distance to many major shopping centers, restaurants, movie theaters, the San Antonio plaza, banks, and the most visited lakeside “Hot Spots” such as Superlake or Walmart, both are very close to this gated community.

The common areas include a very large pool (with a small dipping pool), a hot tub Jacuzzi, club house equipped with a small kitchen, terrace furniture and beautiful cobble stone streets that has a walking path in the middle. This development has a very warm feeling and resembles a unified community with beautiful homes.

Area limits of El Parque

We have added a map below allowing you to identify where El Parque is located and how close all the amenities and shopping areas are. The bus stop is just down the road and drives by every 20 minutes, which makes transportation to the rest of Lakeside very easy.  You could walk to the town of Ajijic in about 15 minutes and Chapala perhaps 20. By far this condominium project is in one of the best locations in the Lakeside area.

Real Estate, Rentals & Neighborhood

Homes in El Parque are considered smaller than other developments offer, however there are a few larger ones that are two stories. The houses are aligned close up to each other, which some consider as a con since privacy plays a factor here, but the common areas and price ranges for these homes make up for it. You can find a home to buy starting at about 120,000 USD up to about 230,000 USD for larger two story homes. Rentals are rare since El Parque does have a high demand, especially for vacation rentals, but you can find a rental starting at about 700 USD up to 950 USD. The homeowners are very organized and are known to have great events (4th of July parties, potlucks etc.. ) and small get togethers at the clubhouse, making the community a pleasant welcoming place to live.
