holiday overview

Highlights / General details

This half-day tour from Guadalajara takes you by minivan to Lake Chapala (Lago de Chapala) where you’ll enjoy a scenic boat ride to Scorpion Island (Isla de los Alacranes). Then, head to Ajijic for a stroll down cobblestone streets as you take in the romantic atmosphere of its galleries, quaint shops and colonial-style buildings. Enjoy personal attention from your guide on this small-group tour, limited to 13 people.


After hotel pickup, your guide will transport your small group by comfortable minivan to the town of Chapala, located approximately 27 miles (45 km) south of Guadalajara on the shore of Lake Chapala. Surrounded by mountains and renowned for its lovely scenery, the lake has become a hotspot for North American retirees who are drawn to the region’s incredible year-round weather.


Take a scenic boat ride across the beautiful lake to Scorpion Island, a small and secluded isle accessible only by watercraft, including popular canoes. While you take in the gorgeous landscape, your guide will point out the many types of birds, including pelicans, that inhabit the lake. You’ll see a unique perspective of the lake from the middle of the island, which offers a few outdoor restaurants serving local specialties like charales – tiny, crunchy dried fish eaten with salt, lime and chili.


Just 10 minutes from Chapala on the lake’s north shore, an enormous tree welcomes visitors to the small town of Ajijic, famous for its many horseback riders and moderate summer temperatures. Your guide will provide an overview on the history of the town and the importance of the lake to the region.


Enjoy more lakeside views as you walk down the cobblestone streets lined with charming restaurants, bars and art galleries abundant with local textiles. Admire the colonial-style whitewashed buildings and enjoy some free time to explore the quaint boutiques on your own.


If you’d like, you can purchase lunch (not included) before your guide returns you to your hotel in Guadalajara.
