Description:

Venture outside of Guadalajara to take in the stunning natural scenery of Lago de Chapala—Mexico's largest lake—and explore the cobbled streets, galleries, and whitewashed homes of the charming village of Ajijic.

After being picked up at your hotel, ride through the Sierra Madres to Lake Chapala, a charming body of water lined with charming lakeside towns and framed by rolling hills. Admire the stained-glass windows at Casa Brannif. Built in 1903, this stately Victorian mansion played host to celebrities and socialites from Mexico and abroad during its heyday.

Walk along the pier and stop by the 19th-century Gran Hotel Arzapalo, the first hotel in Chapala, and the recently restored historic train station. Visit the church of San Antonio de Padua, established by the area's earliest Franciscan missionaries.

Soak up the sophisticated, old-world vibe of Ajijic as you wander by the boutiques and restaurants along its colonial streets. Take in the elegant hillside neighborhood of La Floresta, and then continue to explore on foot or opt for a boat ride along the waterfront to Isla de los Alacranes to conclude your tour.
