Retirement Seminars And Information

The Lake Chapala Northwest shore region is a major destination for thousands of sunbirds, snowbirds, and retirees. You will find the largest concentration of expats living here than any other place in the world. Many come here to escape the high cost of living, the freezing winters, and the sweltering summers found north of the border. You will also find a large community of Europeans living here as well. A recent news article stated that in the Mexican State of Jalisco (The Lake Chapala Area) almost 23,000 registered Americans, 3,400 Canadians, and over 6,500 Europeans call our area home. According to National Geographic this region is second only to Kenya in having the world’s best climate. English is widely spoken here.
