I agree with M. Ajijic is not a place for sun and beach worship. It is more of a leisure walk, art gallery gallore, and peaceful scenery, but if you are looking for swim in the gulf/ocean, head to the coast, either Puerto Vallarta, Costa Alegre, or Manzanillo. These cities and towns offer great beach resorts with lots to do. It is not that far from Ajijic.

The original poster accidentally posted their message on the Ajijic forum (look at the title of the page) which is why everyone thinks this is an Ajijic question.

(Ajijic is a town near Guadalajara)

To the original poster: I would suggest re-posting your message on the Cancun and Puerto Vallarta forums...the people on those forums will probably know more about the beaches than us.

No Ajijic is not the area to post your question, we are a lake town. Lago de Chapala.

I too suggest you try posting on the PV, Manzanillo, Bucerias, Rincon de Guayabitos San Blas, NV or just Pacific Coast forums.

I am nearing 50 and well I love PV, & NV. If you are looking for smaller or quaint maybe south side of PV or Bucerias or Rincon.

Good luck. Happy Vacation.

Stop by Ajijic, in Lago de Chapala sometime for a different type of vacation, no beach here, I only wish LOL.
