Area Info
Originally, Ajijic was an Indian fishing village quietly nestled at 5200 feet in the mountains on the edge of Mexico's largest lake, Lake Chapala. In the 1950's it had a population of 6,000, comprised of multi-nationals and native Mexicans. Today that figure has grown to 19,000. It is still considered a hospitality haven drawing the adventurous. It's streets are narrow and paved with cobblestones. Most homes and estates are behind stone or brick walls, many with surprisingly spacious grounds. The sounds of the village are everywhere- church bells, horses' hooves, the musical theme of the ice cream man, and of the knife sharpener man, and others. Ajijic continues to retain its Mexican identity, while at the same time catering to tourists and retirees, with hotels, nearby hot springs, a water park, hiking trails, doctors, clinics, a hospital and restaurants galore- more probably than in any other Mexican village of it's size; at last count 39 !
An artists colony in the early 1930s, Ajijic is still full of art galleries and studios. Artists and Artisans offer oil and water color paintings, sculpture in both metal and wood, and silver jewelry. Stimulated by this creative atmosphere, a number of well known writers have lived and worked here. Somerset Maugham finished The Razor's Edge here in the 30s. Tennessee Williams hosted a nightly poker game that inspired a short story which he later expanded into A Street Car Named Desire. Presently the Lakeside Writers Group serves as a venue for budding writers.
From Ajijic a four lane highway leads to cosmopolitan Guadalajara, only 50 minutes away. With a population of 6 million, it has everything one could possibly want; great medical services, opera, the symphony, live theatre, art galleries, street markets, a subway system and the ultimate in high-end shopping, somewhat like Rodeo Drive!
And from Ajijic the Guadalajara International Airport is only 25 minutes away.
