Lakeside Guide to Lake Chapala, Ajijic, Mexico

Hotel Casa Blanca

At a Glance

This cozy boutique hotel in Ajijic with 8 rooms in the Moorish style is built around a 100-year-old plum tree.

More Info

Hotel Casa Blanca is centrally located in Ajijic across the street from the Lake Chapala Society, just a block north of the lakefront and three from the plaza.

It has eight rooms, four of them with a kitchenette. One room has a private balcony and four have a balcony or patio shared with the adjoining room.

A middle eastern theme runs throughout the hotel, with art, furniture and Moorish architecture. (When the Spanish arrived in the New World 500 years ago, they brought their Moorish traditions with them. Today, it’s hard to walk far in Ajijic, and much of Mexico, without running into domes or stylistic arches in Mexico’s tri-cultural architecture.)

A spectacular plum tree, some 50 feet high and more than 110 years old, infuses the hotel with a special energy and keeps the rear courtyard cool during the day. If you decide to stay in one of the second-story rooms, it feels like you’re sleeping in the trees.

A mirador (rooftop veranda) is reachable via a spiral staircase, which looks down onto the neighboring properties and offers views of the mountains to the north and Mt. Garcia south of the lake.
