Lakeside Guide to Lake Chapala, Ajijic, Mexico

Hotel La Nueva Posada

At a Glance

A luxurious hotel on the Lake Chapala shoreline owned since the 1970s by the Eager family.

More Info

At La Nueva Posada, there are 19 suites housed on three levels of a grand old posada at the end of Donato Guerra Street, a few blocks from the central plaza in Ajijic.

This hotel has all the charm and grandeur you might expect from a boutique hotel based on colonial Mexican architecture: vaulted ceilings, stucco painted in soft pastels and regal designs like the sweeping stone staircase that takes you from the lobby to the rooms.

The hotel sits right on the Lake Chapala shoreline, with a garden that goes right up against the water, providing vistas of the lake and Mt. Garcia 12 kilometers away on the south side of the lake.

On the roof, a large mirador (rooftop balcony) gives guests an incredible view of the mountains behind Lake Chapala.

The hotel has a restaurant called La Rusa (The Russian) which serves continental cuisine and traditional Mexican dishes. It’s named after Ayenara Zara Alexeyewa, one of the first immigrants to arrive in Ajijic, in the early 20th century.

La Nueva Posada has been owned and operated by the Eager family since they came to Mexico in 1975.
