Paul and I just returned from a couple of weeks in Ajijic. We were a bit weary of the hot weather and thought that a break in the cool highlands would be just the ticket. It worked out just great for us.
We had rented a place through AirBnB that seemed as though it would be perfect for us. But unfortunately the pool was empty, the internet was only available at a table across the property outside, and the kitchenette had no sink. I had brought my VitaMix planning on having smoothies for breakfast, but I really didn’t want to have to wash it in the shower! We stayed one night and then booked a room at the Hotel La Nueva Posada. That’s a picture of the hotel at the top of this post.
We stayed there five days before locating a much more satisfactory AirBnB place on the West side of town. A real kitchen! A wonderful grassy yard with tons of birds and a mountain view, too! We were happy then!
We really enjoyed the food there as there are lots of good places to eat. We toured around with our friend (and former blogger) Marilyn, got together with friends who moved there from Mazatlán, and walked our feet off, of course.
There’s a huge tianguis in Chapala on Monday, a large mostly organic market in West Ajijic on Tuesdays, and a tianguis in central Ajijic on Wednesday. With those… as well as the fabulous gringo hearthrob store Super Lake you can certainly eat well. And we did, of course!
Now we are back home and even though it’s still hot we’re happy to be here.
