Quite a long-shot on that, unfortunately.
I can tell you that Hermosillo is a decent place to stay.
But, wow, that's a DRIVE! 5 days? A week?

Are you taking Nogales - Hermosillo - Mazatlan - Tepic - Guadalajara - Lago de Chapala - Ajijic?

Let me find out the name of the hotel in Tepic...they have a few that are okay, small city.

Mazatlan has a better offer of hotels, since it's a port.

I have a few choices for GUadalajara, but you wont probably need it, I have Posada GUadalajara, Las Pergolas o a Holiday Inn in downtown, however, you will be at a frog jump from Chapala, max 30 mins.. then Ajijic..

I've driven Nogales-Ajijic (I live in Ajijic) both ways probably seven or eight times. Granted, I don't pick any daisies or take any pictures......BUT.....I make it in two days.

Leave Nogales at dawn. If you're smart, you'll get your visas and the "importacion temporal" sticker at a Mexican consulate in the U.S. before you cross into Mexico -- otherwise, plan on spending 30-45 minutes at the Customs/Immigration plaza about 20km south of Nogales.

If you drive like a bat out of hell (and the toll roads DO support that), you should pull into CULIACAN around dark. DO NOT DRIVE IN THE DARK!!!! There's a great little motel on the southern edge of the city, on the right as you head south. And the food in the restaurant is OK and cheap.

Leave Culiacan early. They've got the new toll road between Mazatlan and Tepic open most of the way -- maybe ALL the way since my last trip in July.

Skip Guadalajara (although you can fight the horrible traffic on the periferico if you choose). Instead, turn off the autopista just past the LAST toll booth before Guadalajara and follow the signs to Tala-Ameca. Turn left at Tala, go through town, continue (about 30 km) to San Jose de Las Flores, then turn right onto the autopista toward Colima. Where the autopista splits, take the right fork toward Jocotepec. At Jocotepec, turn left and follow your nose about 25km to Ajijic.


Travel Tips for Ajijic

Horseriding Along on the shores of Lake Chapala

by shmiller

Horseriding along the shores of Lake Chapala near Ajijic is a great way to enjoy and afternoon and see the area. The scene pictured is at the Chapala shoreline. Chapala is a larger town just east of Ajijic. From the pier area tourists can take a boat ride out to one of several small islands in the lake. Unfortunately the lake is terribly polluted and is shrinking at an alarming rate due to the lack of effective conservation efforts.


by SerSol

The Village of Ajijic is, four miles west of Chapala town, has become popular with Canadians, Americans and some Europeans, as a lakeside resort in recent years. More typical of the lake area than Chapala, this small town boastes a large American and Canadian Artist colony, as well as many non artist and retired foreigner people. Extremely pleasant people, the natives of Ajijic dedicate themselves to farming and artesany.
Ajijic is also noted for having been home of D. Lawrence, of literary fame.

They do have excellent restaurant’s, very nice Hotels and bed & breakfast ($45-110 us)

Ajijic invites you to wander through its cobbled streets, surrounded by lush vegetataion and incredible natural landscapes, its beach with its pier, its plentiful art galleries and craft shops where you´ll find, amongst other local specialities, hand made fabrics, clothes and silver goods.

Come to experience the colors, shapes, and forms of the town, the warmth of the locals and the excellent gastronomy, from delicious Mexican snacks to exquisite and exotic international cuisine.

The Huicholes call themselves "the healers." Isolated high in the Sierra Madre mountains of northwestern Mexico, for centuries they have performed ceremonial rituals they believe heal the Earth and keep nature balanced. The perpetuation of life and the protection of nature's creations is their time-honored responsibility. The origins of the Huicholes remain clouded. Their own historical recollections, and evidence in common language roots and beliefs, indicates they are related to the Aztecs of ancient Mexico. The Huicholes descended from early hunter-gatherers, and may have been driven high into the Sierra by the Spanish in the early 1500's.

Ajijic: The Best Weather in the World

by mexicoblue

I've lived in Ajjijic for nine years after taking an early retirement at age 51. It's beautiful, has great weather, a low cost of living, and best of all a wonderful community of expats. The Mexican people are kind, generous and teach us wonderful lessons on living in the present and valuing the truly important things.
