Your guide to Ajijic

All About Ajijic

Set on the north shore of Lake Chapala and nestled in the Sierra Madre Mountains, Ajijic is known for its low-key atmosphere and rustic scenery. Given distinction as a Pueblos Magicos or “Magic Town” by Mexico’s Ministry of Tourism, Ajijic’s uniqueness is felt walking its cobblestone streets lined with colorful buildings, murals, and gardens. To the north, Sierra de San Juan Cosala Park offers hiking trails and waterfall views. Vistas of Lake Chapala, Mexico’s largest body of fresh water, can be taken in while walking the Malecon de Chapala promenade, and be sure not to miss the Danza de la Voladores, a traditional aerial performance, along the way. Boutiques, malls, and markets abound, and many locals congregate at the Lake Chapala Farmers Market every Wednesday for fresh produce. Known for its mix of locals and expats, the area exhibits an array of dining, including taquerias, tequila bars, pizza shops, French restaurants, and Thai cuisine.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Ajijic

While Ajijic is located at a tropical latitude, its mountain elevation gives it a moderate climate with mild temperatures, making it a comfortable destination year-round. The region is warmest between April and June and the rainy season usually lasts from June to October. Ajijic offers an abundance of fiestas and events annually. Carnaval and the Fiesta de San Sebastian are popular events held in January, both of which include traditional parades. The area’s most popular event by far is the National Chili Cookoff, which usually occurs in late February. The annual hot air balloon festival is another local favorite that takes place in November. Teams of participants sponsored by local businesses prepare paper balloons weeks before the event where they are released amid food and beverage vendors.

Top things to do in Ajijic

Ajijic Farmer’s Market

Ajijic’s weekly farmer’s market, still known by its ancient Nahuatl name, tianguis, is filled with vendors selling fresh produce, fish, groceries, and flowers along with stands of prepared food. Taking place every Wednesday morning, the market also features a mix of craft vendors selling local artwork, curios, and jewelry.

Tepalo Waterfalls Hike

Lace up your hiking boots and hit the trail to see the waterfalls at El Tepalo and encounter Ajijic’s namesake — “the place of water.” Along the way, bask in the stunning views of Ajijic and the spectacular Lake Chapala below. The best time to view the waterfalls is during the rainy season, after a few days of heavy rain, as El Tepalo is dry until the rain makes the water flow.


All the beauty and vibrancy of Ajijic can be found on a stroll along its seaside boardwalk. Dotted with shops, restaurants, and ice cream vendors along with musicians, exercise equipment, and spots to catch golden sunset views, this charming promenade has it all. Visit at different times of day to catch the changing light on the lake.
