Directions to Casa del Sol

©2003 by Tony Burton. Used by Kind permission of Tony Burton.

If flying, you will arrive at the Guadalajara International Airport. It is an easy thirty minute trip to get from the airport to Casa del Sol in Ajijic. You can either take a taxi or rent a car from one of several agencies at the airport.

To Take a Taxi: After going through immigration control, get your luggage and pass through customs, and you will see a Taxi booth. Tell them you want to take a taxi to Ajijic - you will pay at the booth (about $25.00 USD) and receive a ticket. Once outside look for the taxi stand and tell them you need a taxi to Ajijic. Give the ticket to the driver along with the map and driving directions in Spanish (see below). You will be brought right to the door of Casa del Sol. It is not Mexican custom to tip taxi drivers, but if the service is good, we usually do.

To Drive from the Airport: As you leave the airport, stay in the right hand lane. Bear right, heading south to Lake Chapala on a divided 4-lane highway. About 25 minutes later you will be climbing the mountains. As you come down them you will see a sign pointing to the right to Jocotepec and Ajijic. Take that turn off to the right.

You are now on an undivided 2-lane road which in a few miles will dead end at a stop light where you will turn to the right. This is called the Carretera ("Highway") and is the main road running from the town of Chapala in the East to Jocotepec at the Western end of Lake Chapala. Shortly you will pass beneath a beautiful canopy of trees several blocks long (in a neighborhood called "La Floresta") and emerge by a PEMEX gas station on your right.

Shortly you will come to your first traffic light - turn left here. This street is called both Encarción Rosas and Donato Guerro and you will see the Guadalajara Pharmacy and Lloyds at this corner on your left.

Go downhill (south) toward the lake until you reach the third cross street. This is 16 de Septiembre - turn right here.

Go to the first street and turn right - this is M. Blanco, which turns into Javier Mina (one-way street). Continue up this street past the first cross street. Then ½ block on the left is Casa del Sol at Javier Mina #7.

You will see a sign and plaque for Casa del Sol. You may park only on the left side of the street. Please ring the bell located by the entrance door.
