Ajijic and other lakeshore communities are flush with retail and service businesses of almost every kind. Many cater to the needs of over 6,000 foreigners from all over the world but mostly from Canada and the United States. Luxury view homes dot the northern hillsides overlooking the lake.

Except for the main highway that runs along the lake, the streets in Ajijic are hand made from large rounded stones so driving on them is bumpy at best. Some say stone roads help mantain an element of rustic charm. Bigger towns along the lakeshore have paved streets. There are several supermarkets and many real estate offices. Buying and selling real estate is a hot topic for discussion around town.

Ajijic Little Church

Ajijic Little Church

Around Ajijic'x plaza, you will find almost everything needed for a good vacation. For a little bit of history and soul saving there is a church. It is small, made of stone, and topped by one tiny bell and a diminutive cross. Surrounded by a stone and iron fence covered with bright bugambilias, this adorable church, dedicated to the Virgin of Santiago, was built in the mid 1500s, or perhaps the early 1600s, it depends on who you ask.

Tamales

Tamales

Rustic corn tamales, wrapped and bound in corn-leaves. These tamales were not steamed in water, but cooked over a wood fire. They are being sold on the streets of Ajijic village, riding on a trolley. Tamales are corn (maiz) cakes - made with ground corn-meal, filled and wrapped in corn husks, then steamed or boiled in big pots of water. They can be filled either meaty with chicken or beef, or cheese, chile poblano & cheese, or sweet with pineapple etc... A staple food, just like the tortilla here in Mexico, but very laborious to do!!!

Don Pedro and Margarita in Ajijic

People of Ajijic are very warm hearted and that may be the other reason for Ajijic to be such a beautiful village. Don Pedro is a celebrity in the malecon of Ajijic. Everybody takes pictures of him, he is also called "Pedro el Loco".

For evening entertainment there are a handful of bars – La Caja Musical, Bar el Viejo Azteca, the bar in the Restaurant Carrizal, the bars in the hotels and at least one other.

Ajijic Downtown

Ajijic Downtown

Ajijic Downtown is a colorfull place, surrounded by bars, restaurants and tourists. One of the great pleasures of life in Ajijic, whether you're here for a weekend or decide to pull up northern stakes and settle south of the border, is the enormous variety of constantly-blooming flowers in public and private gardens throughout the area. You will see enormous outdoor examples of plants that only grow in the parlor in colder climes, wonderful exotics that you never knew existed, and the ordinary annuals and perennials made larger-than-life and memorable by the Mexican sunwashed temperatures.
