    What is there to do while living Lakeside?

    Lake Chapala offers a low-stress life, where every single day can be an adventure. There are over 5,000 registered fiestas a year in Mexico so there is something to do every minute of the day, if you choose.

     There is also an established infrastructure, much of it created or assisted by the foreign community. We have over 50 English-speaking organizations to participate in. To name a few: the American Legion, the Canadian Club, the Lake Chapala Society, French Group, German Group, the Irish Society and the British Society. There’s a lot or little to do—it’s all up to you. We have a paved bike path, tennis and golf year ‘round, two golf courses lakeside and a dozen more within an hour's drive. You can dance the night away, take in some jazz or big band music, or sit and enjoy our glorious sunsets…

    In addition to living at Lakeside, there are many wonderful things to around the area and in nearby Guadalajara. This section will provide you information on where to find these things to do.

  • A Documentary on Expat Community at Lake Chapala
    Expat Community at Lake ChapalaWhen a friend of mine and I heard about Roy Nolan’s red-carpet-style movie premiere where we had the chance to get dressed up, we were really looking forward to going. However, I didn’t expect to fall in love again with our community here at Lake Chapala. Frankly, after 15 years living here I was already in love with our unique and warm community and didn’t think I could be any more proud of the place that I call home. Until I say Roy Nolan’s documentary
