With a commanding location from the northern shore of its namesake lake, Chapala became a well-known resort destination when President Porfirio Díaz vacationed here every year from 1904 to 1909. DH Lawrence and Tennessee Williams came later, certifying the town’s literary pedigree. Today Chapala is a simple but charming working-class Mexican town with lovely lakeside walks and a buzzing weekend scene.
