Interactive Lake Chapala Area Map

September 23, 2008

Lake Chapala is a approximately 65 miles long and 12 miles wide and is the largest lake South of the Great Lakes in North America. It’s not a deep Lake. I’ve heard various depths from 30 to 50 feet deep.

So, it’s a very shallow lake and sort of a cross between a lake and a lagoon.


Some maps of the lake in Spanish refer to it as Laguna de Chapala (Chapala Lagoon) while others refer to it as Lago de Chapala (Lake Chapala).

Most of the North American community lives along about 30 some odd miles along the North Shore of Lake Chapala along a fairly narrow band of land between the mountain and the lake.

As you check out the homes for sale on the MLS website if you’re not already familiar with the various neighborhoods, developments, towns and villages it may help you to get a visual reference to just where they are in relation to each other.
