Tours & Seminar

Getting familiar with a new community, it’s currency, culture and homes, can be challenging when you are not familiar with the area, especially if it is in another country such as Mexico. Our little piece of paradise on Lake Chapala, Mexico is a beautiful, safe, friendly and most of all an inexpensive area to live in. Not only that, it is easier than you think to get settled here. Our tours are known to be the best in the area and we go through great detail to make sure you get a “crash course” on moving and living in Lake Chapala. Check out some videos of our happy clients and a sample of homes we show you during the tour:

Would you like to see the area & some Real Estate?

Through our website, we receive hundreds of questions from people who want to move here but are hesitant. They want to get some local insight or a “feel” for the area through some guidance, but also about getting to know the area. There are different towns lakeside, homes for sale, homes for rent, local contacts, activities, events, best restaurants and so forth. Below are some of the most common questions we received on a weekly basis:

  • I want to do an exploratory visit; can you take me to see some homes in different areas?
  • Which Lakeside town is right for me and what are the pros and cons?
  • What kind of activities and events go on in Lakeside?
  • How do I buy a house and what do I need to get started?
  • How do I rent a house and what do I need to get started?
  • Should I live in a gated community or in the center of one of Lakeside towns?
  • Where are the local markets, shopping centers, entertainment, etc.
  • Are there hotels or B&B’s close to amenities that I should stay at while visiting the area?
  • Can you recommend some good restaurants?
  • What transportation do you recommend I use while I am there?

Common questions like the ones mentioned above are why Access Lake Chapala offers tours that will guide you through the communities around Lakeside, along with showing you the ropes. We start of in Chapala and end in San Juan Cosala, in which we cover most of the areas highlights as well as different properties through out the villages. We also put you in touch with the right people for immigration, health care, movers and overall local contacts we use.

Once we are finished showing you the area we go back to Access Lake Chapala’s offices and answer any specific questions you have on Immigration, Car Importation, Real Estate etc… You will also be given a handout to take home that you can refer to anytime you like.

Complete Tour of Lake Chapala & 4 Properties (FREE TOUR)

Why do you provide these tours?

We establish a relationship with our clients and eventually earn a commission if they come back to purchase a home in the area in the future. For those clients who are in the market for buying a home, even if it is in the future, we invest our time and energy to work with each client individually, touring them FREE of charge through the area. We show them homes for sale they pick from the ChapalaMLS ( and/or our website. We go visit the homes picked from the MLS or Access Lake Chapala and give useful information on the different Lakeside towns such as: pros-cons of the are, good restaurants, activities, local events, contacts and more. We also give you guidance regarding banking, transportation (legalizing or buying a car), paying utilities (electric, phone, internet), moving belongings and more. We stay in touch with you after the tour and are there for you if you have any follow up questions. Once you are ready to make the commitment and move Lakeside, we will revisit the areas you liked. We will select the homes on the market at that time, finding the perfect home for you. It’s incredibly fulfilling to know we are helping our clients open a new chapter of their lives. This is why we work so hard to not only find that perfect home, but also to handle every last detail of the purchase process, from negotiating the terms of sale to recommending moving companies.
