This 11-room bed and breakfast is in a hacienda that was built in the 1970s and has now been converted into a hotel. It has a beautiful hillside location with great views of the town and lake below.
The current owners, Bonnie and Jai, took over the hotel in 2018 and have been turning it into a place that’s aimed at more than just the casual weekend visitor from Guadalajara.
It’s now not just a hotel, but also a wellness center with a new yoga studio — ideal for retreats centered on meditation, relationships, nutrition, spirituality, cleansing/detox, and so on. Ask for their special retreat rates with accommodations for up to 25 people.
The staff will help you arrange for on-site massages and off-site activities, such as taking part in a temazcal ceremony, going to the mineral springs or riding horses. A bilingual driver is available to take you where you need to go around town.
All stays include a buffet breakfast with gluten-free and vegan options. Made-to-order egg dishes are also available.

Jaime Rodríguez stands on top of the fort walls on Mezcala Island, a half-mile stretch of land rising out of Lake Chapala, Mexico. A local indigenous group successfully used the island as a fortress against the Spanish during the War of Independence in the early 19th century.
