A 5 Minute Video Tour of Lake Chapala

December 12, 2012

Hi Everyone,

 I ran across this 5 minute video that gives a good overview of Lake Chapala and some good scenes of Chapala itself.

There's even a few black and white photos showing a bit of Lake Chapala from yesterday year. You will see a train station that was operational in the mid 1920's for example that now is a beautifully restored Art Museum and the modern photo of this building is the large beautiful yellow building you see earlier in the video.

Notice the diffrent moods of the Lake, the deep blue skies, the drop dead beautiful sunsets over the lake, and the beautifully restored boardwalk (malecon) where you see boats ready to take you on a Lake Adventure.

Enjoy the video and remember I'm just an e mail away if you have questions about any aspect of living, working, and playing at safe, beautiful, and affordable Lake Chapala, where you really can "Live a Caviar Lifestyle on a Tuna Fish Pension."

Tu amigo, Sid Grosvenor
