    Living at Lake Chapala  Allows for Sightseeing and Traveling Mexico

    If you like to travel, Lake Chapala is a good base for traveling all over Mexico. From the Guadalajara airport (only 25 minutes from Lake Chapala) you have easy access to virtually any destination in the world. However, you might not want or need to go that far because there are so many places to visit less than two hours or less away.

    "Well, the biggest thing is trying to decide what we wish to see or do; there is so much to choose from. Boring? - Only if you don’t look for something to do. There just seems to be so much all the time, it is difficult to decide what you want to see or do most. The local English language magazines give listings of what is what is happening in the coming month and the newspaper for the following week. We have kept busy Lakeside without going into Guadalajara for entertainment." 

    We will be adding sections to this page, so come back often.
