Hi Everyone,

Here’s a short video of the Malecon  (boardwalk) in Chapala on a week end. Notice the absence of North Americans. We have it all to ourselves 5 days a week. If you like to see Mexican families enjoying an outing then I recommend going to either the Chapala, Ajijc or Jocotepec Malecon on any Saturday or Sunday.

If you like to people / culture watch this is the perfect place to do it. Another benefit of the weekend influx of Mexican families from Guadalajara is that they help keep the local restaurants and other businesses above water financially so we have a wide
variety of restaurants etc, to choose from during the rest of the week.

Another :Win – Win situation.  Having Guadalajara under an hour drive away or a $3 USD bus ride away gives the Tapitios (people from Guadalajara ) a nice close family oriented place for weekend fun and gives us close by state of the art hospitals, symphony orchestras, ballet folklorico performances,  very modern upscale malls and much more; without the congestion, smog, and strife of living on a daily basis in a city of 4.4 million folks.

Our International airport  (Guadalajara International – GDL) is about at the mid point and just a half hour drive from Lake Chapala on a good 4 lane highway.

I think we have the best of all worlds (especially when you throw in the low prices and near perfect climate year around).

Ok, Here’s the video. Disfrute (Enjoy). Tu amigo, Sid

    Muchas gracias, Sid. Es mejor — los fines de semana — quedarse en casa minetras los Taptios estan en Chapala, me parece.
    Decidme, amigo, cuanto me cuesta alquilar un cuarto en Chapala con refrigerator, uso de la cocina, y un sitio en que banarme? No tiene que estar en un sitio como Villa Nova — que es de alta clase. (Pues, como es el costo de alquilar un cuarto en Villa Nova?) Muchas gracias. (I speak English).
