  • We went to eat at a seafood company, and from the same restaurant we accessed the lake by means of a bacaza, a tour of about 15 minutes was very pleasant, in addition to a lovely place, it is worth approaching the lake that is the largest in Mexico

  • Long walking promenade along lake. Not much activity but probably hops on weekends. Lots of craft booths etc. Nice sculptures. Birds galore. Easy 1 hour drive from Guadalajara. Quaint town. Worth a day trip.
  • 2018 biggest lake in MX. Up 5000’ so it’s perfect temp year round. Locals are great and lots of Gringos. A chill place. Good eats. Brian Hearne
  • Nice place to visit and enjoy.
  • Greatest Lake in whole Mexico. Great people, food and hand made manualities.
  • Not much to do on the lake, lacks activities. Lake is also pretty dirty. Go see the prison on the island, it's about the only thing to see.
