Welcome to The Lake Chapala Society

Can-Am 2014

The Lake Chapala Society in Ajijic, Mexico is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the mutual exchange of knowledge, expertise, culture, heritage, language and talents, thereby contributing to the social enrichment of its members as well as the lakeside Mexican community.

Annually, we have almost 3,000 members and associates from nations around the world. For almost 60 years, we have been helping newcomers and old-timers, both full and part-time, to have a more enjoyable and stress-free life here at Lakeside.

In addition to providing social, recreational and educational opportunities for expatriates, the Society also assists the local Mexican community through education in computer technology, English, art, and academic programs, as well as offering an ongoing student aid program and Spanish language library.
