Ajijic Things to Do

  • by donna_maestros Written May 14, 2007

    A 'Heart" Show, not just an "Art" Show!

    Every November in the beautiful lakeside village of Ajijic, there is an amazing, non-profit, 3 day event highlighting Mexican indigenous and folk arts, many of which are in danger of disappearing forever.

    The show, now in it's 6th year, is put together by a group of ex-pats and Mexicans who have come together to help keep Mexican folk art alive. Artists are invited free of charge from all over Mexico in an effort to promote their arts.

    It is a unique and worthwhile experience, so mark your calendars for November 9-10-11, 10 AM to 4PM.

    Very Popular and waiting lines can be some what long durning the Mexican meal times.
    The meats are cooked over a mesquite grill . The flap teak (usually 14 oz.) comes with french fries or steamed veggies and costs only 90 pesos.

    Favorite Dish: We ate here many times durning our stay in Ajijic and ordered only the flap steak except once we ordered the Filet mignon for two (26 oz). This steak was so large that we ended up taking half home to a meal the next day. This cost was only 170 pesos, what a buy.

    Taking the white and red Chapala bus to and from Ajijic is easy and cheap. Buses run about every 1/2 hour from town to town along the north lake shore and cost about 60 cents USD. There are more local buses within and from town to town that cost the same but make more frequent stops, routed down the norrow and busy local cobblestone streets. Lake Chapala buses stay on the well paved main drag, the Carratera.

    Lake Chapala Buses Are Modern and Timely

    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.

    Ride a horse to tour the lake shore.

    On weekends horses and ATVs are available to rent. Riding along the lakeshore provides a unique way to see Ajijic and surrounding areas. Lookout for grazing cattle. Small ATVs rent for a about $60 USD a day. Horses are about $30 USD.
