LUSH greens, blue WATERS and the SOUND OF BIRDS!
With the blessing of furloughs and black Fridays at the City, numerous occasions will allow this BIRD to spread her colorful wings and fly to Ajijic to visit new friends! One charming Bed & Breakfast is featured in this blog post for friends to get the FEEL. Ajijic is situated on a narrow strip of land between the mountains to the north of Lake Chapala. It is surrounded by the San Antonio Tlayacapan mountains to the east and San Juan Cosala grand sierra to the west. It is 4 miles west of Chapala. Its average annual temperature is "68" degrees. The Inn Keepers of Los Artistas B & B, Kent and Linda are great hosts who speak English. Due to Ajijic's tropical latitude, the sun is warm year round; due to its relatively high elevation, it is seldom hot or humid. The rainy season begins in June and lasts until October with an average rainfall of about 34 inches. Even during the rainy season, participation generally occurs during the evening or at night. December and January are the coolest months and May is the hottest. Overall, there is very little temperature variation year round: daytime highs in January are around 75 degrees; daytime highs in July are around 80 to 90 degrees which result in fantastic lush gardens and color! The perfect respite from the bhussle and bustle of traffic, news, telephones and the hectic pace of the USA. This B & B in Ajijic is close to transport, grocery, and many delicious restaurants. The breakfast served in the morning is substantial, and usually offers a hot dish, as well as fresh fruits, juices, toasts, coffee. A double bed for a single nite is $68 USD. A trip to explore the location of my ideal SHANGRILA for my style of retirement. For my remaining 30 years I shall enjoy and entertain among a group of like minded expats and locals in a casual jungle style while enjoying 75 degree temps year round. Kayaking the lake, exploring the surrounding historic villages and writing my book. On Wednesdays, the local market is only two blocks from this B & B. This location is quite convenient, even without a car, as the local bus lines run a block away. A bus trip into Chapala is only .25 cents USA. Explore AJIJIC, dazzle about the peeps found in town square, listen to the Mariachi's, focus on the inhabitants, your dreams, and SQUEAL!
