Welcome to Ajijic and Lake Chapala


We want to congratulate you for looking into Mexico's largest North American retirement community. As the first established real estate company in the area and the first English language magazine, we have introduced many to our local idyllic scene. We feel this is what we do best, showing you what graceful and carefree retirement is all about. Let us share with you our excitement and knowledge on the lake area. Be among the many who have already begun a new and enjoyable life.

The Area Known as “Lakeside”

This area is known as “Lakeside” to residents from the U.S., Canada,  Great Britain and Europe, among other places, and “la ribera” to Mexicans.  Due partly to the eclectic mixture, it has developed a continental Old World charm which blends smoothly with a distinctly  Mexican ambiance.

Cobblestone streets, tile-roofed homes, riotously colorful gardens  blooming year around, and incredible open-air markets and restaurants are  common sights, backdropped by lush green mountains surrounding the lake. The  hills are laced with flowering trees and plants, and accented by waterfalls,  caves, petroglyphs, indigenous sacred sites, and a variety of hiking trails and  places to explore.
