  • Worth a visit the Lake at any of the riverine locations, since fortunately there is a wash in the water and its environment. His landscapes are amazing especially when the Sun is hiding. The residential developments, hotels and restaurants, each day there are more numerous and of very good quality, which attracts large numbers of tourists, who sometimes make this area their permanent place of residence.

  • If you visit Chapala, you should not miss visiting Ajijic, the town is very typical and cute, nice and clean, square of San Andres Apostol parish is worth visiting, and many restaurants for all tastes.
