Lakeside Guide to Lake Chapala, Ajijic, Mexico

Home Delivery of Food & Other Services at Lake Chapala

At a Glance

During the coronavirus pandemic, support these 150+ restaurants & businesses offering home delivery at Lake Chapala.

More Info

Under state and municipal orders, all non-essential businesses in Jalisco must remain closed until at least mid-May due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Restaurants are one of the types of businesses that have been deemed essential and many are now offering home delivery in Ajijic, Chapala and other towns at Lake Chapala.

Tourism has been shut down and many other businesses, now designed as non-essential, are closed until at least the second week of May. But things aren’t likely to go back to normal for many months and maybe not until next year. Social distancing may need to be in effect until a vaccine is developed and ready for distribution in 12-18 months. Even if things resolve much sooner than that, most people here live day-to-day or week-to-week and can’t survive without work.

Support your local businesses & corner stores

Most businesses are struggling at Lake Chapala, some have already closed their doors permanently, and the pandemic is only just starting to take hold in Mexico. With non-essential businesses closed, many people are out of work. It’s important during these times that we shop locally and avoid the big box stores like Walmart and Costco. Our neighbors need us now more than ever.

Start shopping at your corner store if you aren’t already and if you are, make a pledge to patronize them more often. The tienditas on more or less every block are always fully stocked (even with toilet paper) and have everything you need to get by: eggs, bread, milk, butter, drinks, sandwiches, vegetables, fruits, toiletries, canned goods, cooking oil, junk food, beans, rice, and on and on.

Lakeside Foodbank

By the way, Lakeside Foodbank is organizing a food bank for Mexican families from San Pedro Itzican to Ajijic. They need monetary donations to pay for groceries for local families who don’t have any food. They also are looking for volunteers, especially bilingual ones, who can help with dispensing food and coordinating the response for each town. You can go directly to their Facebook page or visit the Volunteer Opportunities page on this site to learn more.

Is it safe to order food from restaurants at this time?

It’s unlikely that coronavirus can be spread through food. The virus primarily attaches itself to your respiratory track — not the inside of your mouth. The USDA and FDA have also said that there is no evidence that the virus can be transferred through food. Cooking food at normal high temperatures will kill the virus.

But you’ll still want to observe proper hand hygiene before eating and after disposing of your to-go order’s packaging since active coronavirus can remain on surfaces for days. Avoid touching your face, which could transfer the virus from a surface of any packaging into your eyes or nose. The biggest factor in the spread of COVID-19 is through breathing and direct contact with other people.

About the listings below

I’ve tried to include as much confirmed info as possible such as delivery hours, the menu and whether delivery is free. It seems like most places are offering their deliveries for no extra charge. But in the list below I’ve only indicated if delivery is free if I’m 100% certain.

Some restaurants are exclusively using a third-party delivery service called Traitte. Some have their own delivery person. Some do both.

Traitte is a common way for people to order food in the area and for the month of April, co-founder Joel Hernández says that they’ll be waving their normal charges and will offer free delivery. (They’ll also be waving the sign-up fees for any new restaurants or businesses.)

You can use Traitte’s website or download their Android or iPhone app to place your order and it should arrive within the timeframe that is specified for each restaurant. Traitte will send your order to the restaurant and a delivery guy will pick it up and bring it to you. You can pay the driver in cash when your order arrives.

Traitte normally charges you a base fee plus a certain percentage of the order cost. But again, they are waving their fees for the month of April.

If you click on one of the Traitte links below and you get a message like, “There are no menu items available at this time,” it’s because the restaurant is not open for delivery at the moment. Try again later when they are open. You can get a list of all Traitte’s restaurants by visiting their website.

Some restaurants are now keeping special delivery hours apart from their regular hours. Other restaurants have closed their dining rooms completely and are only offering takeout and/or delivery.

If you know of any other restaurants or businesses that should be added to this list, or of any corrections or updates, please let me know.
