The beautiful and brand new Chapala Cruise Boat "BATUR" allows you to soak up the wonderful Lake Chapala views – both in the daytime, and in the glorious sunsets. An elegant bar and music will add to your experience.
Perhaps Mexico’s most exciting and romantic story of the 1810 Revolution took place right near Chapala, on Mezcala Island. You owe it to yourself to enjoy a boat trip on one of the “lanchas” by the Chapala pier. You’ll enjoy incomparable lake views, and a piece of wonderful Mexican history that deserves attention from Hollywood!
Guadalajara is one of Latin America’s most delightful cities. It is blessed with a true Spanish Colonial “historic centre”, with numerous beautiful plazas, the magnificent Degollado Theatre, and Mexico’s largest marketplace. A little west of the centre, the city is overwhelmed with grand tree-lined boulevards, fountains and monuments, countless rose gardens, and shopping plazas to rival North America’s best. Guadalajara, and the state of Jalisco, can lay claim to being the birthplace of mariachis and tequila.
Formerly an artists’ colony on the fringes of Guadalajara, Tlaquepaque is world renowned for its exquisite offerings of beautiful art, furnishings, and handicrafts, all in a delightful setting. Nearby is Tonala, which is crowded with countless stores and stalls selling just about everything you’d want to take home with you. Neither place is to be missed.
Relax and enjoy an evening (or a Sunday morning Folkloric performance), while letting a professional driver take care of you. The city offers a wide selection of grand theatres and shows, including the Degollado, the Telmex Centre, the Diana Theatre, and the VFG Centre, as well as many smaller venues.
Tapalpa and Mazamitla are pine-filled mountain towns only 2 hours from Chapala, and are favorites with “tapatios” (Guadalajarans). In October and November the mountain meadows are covered in wildflowers, especially around Tapalpa. Each really makes for a wonderful day trip.
