Living in Mexico


20210821_123242

As an Expat I still marvel at the beauty and pace of the people of Mexico.  Living at Lakeside, just 45 minutes to Guadalajara – we enjoy the sound of birds twittering, church bells ringing, the clop of horses down our cobblestone streets, and such a vast variety of green and vivid bloom. We enjoy luxury bus trips to Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta, the Guadalajara zoo, or to see the Charro’s play ball.  Mexican Baseball

  1. History of San Nicolas de Ibarra, Jalisco, Mexico. Filmed in July 2021 by a realtor who interviewed the Ibarra family. Many of our neighbors have homes in San Francisco, CA.
