Welcome to The Lake Chapala Society


CanAm Party

The Lake Chapala Society in Ajijic, Mexico is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the mutual exchange of knowledge, expertise, culture, heritage, language and talents, thereby contributing to the social enrichment of its members as well as the lakeside Mexican community.

Annually, we have almost 3,000 members and associates from nations around the world. For almost 60 years, we have been helping newcomers and old-timers, both full and part-time, to have a more enjoyable and stress-free life here at Lakeside.

In addition to providing social, recreational and educational opportunities for expatriates, the Society also assists the local Mexican community through education in computer technology, English, art, and academic programs, as well as offering an ongoing student aid program and Spanish language library.

The Fiscalia General del Estado (FGE) Now at LCS

Wednesday, April 16 from 10 am - 2 pm


Jalisco's Attorney General's office is collaborating with the Lake Chapala Society to provide residents the opportunity to report crime. Now, you can file a denuncia at LCS with a bilingual lawyer from Ministerio Publico.

The attorney General’s office is asking all community members who have not filed a denuncia (formal complaint) on a crime that has been committed against them in the past year to come to LCS and do it. They will provide legal advice regarding your complaint.

Likewise if you have filed a denuncia in the past year with no results you can come and ask for a status report.

In the eyes of the officials if a crime goes unreported, it didn't happen. Be part of the solution, report all CRIMES!

In the Talking Books Library on the first and third Wednesday of each month. Of course if nobody uses this opportunity, the program at LCS will go away.
