“A marvellous time was had by all” We loved the airy spaciousness of the house and the quiet environment, but so close to the action in downtown ajijic.
We spent January-February there in 2009 and again in 2010. We love well furnished comfort of the house with some lovely art and mementoes of travel in Mexico.
Local attractions we particularly enjoyed were the fiestas and Charros (displays of horsemanship and bull-riding) in the lead up to lent. The crafts of Mexico are really amazing. In ajijic we were centrally located to visit Guadalajara city and its bordering craft centres in Tlaquepaque and Tonalla.
A little further away is Patzcuaro with its wonderful villages that each specialize in one particular craft. We bought a wonderful silver bowl in Santa Clara del Cobre which specializes in beaten metal artwork. We intend to go back some some day in October/November to see the celebrations around all Saints and all Souls days. Ajijic, the town is safe and secure, with a large group of North america expatriates living year round in retirement. So there is some catering to the whims of North american tastes for those who want it. For my money, the best, most delicious spicy food I ever tasted was in little hole in the wall restaurants and at street vendor stands in ajijic. I am going back home to australia next January, but for sure I'll be back the year after.
