Bed & Breakfast ( B&B)
Ajijic can boast to having a wide variety of B & B's from World Class resort villas to basic rooms that are perfect if you are just passing through the Lake Chapala area and need a place to stay while looking for a longer term Rental Property. Some guest of Bed and Breakfast use them as a place to stay when their property rental is not available for a few days, but they chose to fly on a more convenient date.

Bus service
Buses run frequently along the Carretera as well as through the village. They are very inexpensive to ride and a great way to interact and observe the people. The cost is about 7 pesos for the shorter trips to approximately 12 pesos for the full trip from Chapala/Jocotopec to Jocotopec/Chapala. A trip from Ajijic to Guadalajara is roughly 40 pesos. The Carretera buses are more comfortable, but the Village buses are a lot of fun. Always something to see as it takes you through the
villages of San Antonio and Ajijic.

Along the Carretera
These buses are more luxurious than the village buses. You will notice them by being bigger, having a flatter front in design and they have curtains on the window. They run from Chapala to Jocotopec and back. Look for benches where the bus stops are or a concrete inset where they pull over to stop, but don’t forget to flag them down or they may
not stop. You can also take a bus directly to Guadalajara from the corner of Colon on the Carretera.

In the village
- Eastbound
the bus turns onto Rio Bravo from the Carretera and runs along Ocampo to Fco. l. Madero where it turns east back along the Carretera.
- Westbound it turns at Fco. l. Madero and runs along Gpe. Victoria and cuts over to Zaragonza to Rio Bravo where it continues westbound along the carretera. You can stand on any corner to catch these buses, but remember to flag them down or they may not stop.
