Welcome to Chapala

With a commanding location on the shores of its namesake lake, Chapala became a well-known resort destination after president Porfirio Díaz vacationed here every year from 1904 to 1909. DH Lawrence and Tennessee Williams were later visitors, sealing the town’s literary pedigree, and today Chapala is a simple but charming working-class Mexican town with lovely lakeside walks and a buzzing weekend scene
