  • A place that did not know close to guadalajara, arrive in the village of mezcala and take you on a boat with or without a guide, had some wind so if we gave a good wet, that same us soft drink and travel 50 Min on the island which is walk because we were dry. We returned to the village of Mezcala and ate with Doña Silvia front malecon food is rich and affordable is a modest place with good service. As a resident of Guadalajara are the places that it is important to know and I think it is important to make greater dissemination of the same. It was a delicious Sunday in family and beautiful landscapes. It is important to point out that the road from Guadalajara to Mezcala requires maintenance.

  • This island served as prison at some point in history and still retains the old wall, which you can upload. Access to this old prison is a drawbridge over a moat through, as if it were a small castle. The views of Lake Chapala are wonderful. You can access through renting boats on the island of Mezcala. If meeting a group you will get more cheap boat.
