Ajijic Rentals: Where To Find Rentals in Ajijic

Updated: Sep 10

(updated September 10, 2020)

Thinking of renting in Lake Chapala? Then you've come to the right place. There are now more than 50 ways to find a rental in Lake Chapala so this blog is your #1 resource!

As a real estate agent I constantly get asked about rentals in Ajijic. Although many people who come down to Ajijic fall in love and buy within the first week, it is always a wise decision to rent first in different areas to get a feel for what it is like to live in certain communities. So to help out my prospective customers I have compiled a list of all the rental centers, Real Estate companies and every other way possible to find a rental in Lake Chapala.

I have not included sites that do vacation rentals such as VRBO, Airbnb, Ajijic Villas, etc.

When possible, all the links below take you directly to the 'rentals' page for each website.

Due to the possibility of Google penalizing me for having too many outgoing links I have chosen not to include the hyperlink. Please right click over the link and "open in new tab".

All the best in your search and if you just find it all too daunting and want help, we provide a Rental Finder Service where we do the work and find the perfect rental for you.

If You Have Feet On The Ground

If you are lucky enough to have someone on the ground in Ajijic, then have them check the bulletin board at the Lake Chapala Society, Dona Donuts, SuperLake Grocery, Wal-Mart and El Torito Market. Then once you've arrived in town watch for the 'se renta' signs posted in windows and doors around town in order to make your best deal for future rentals.

Don't forget the local publications.

Guadalajara Reporter comes out weekly on Saturdays and has a good classified section. Ojo del Lago is a free publication easily found throughout town and comes out at the beginning of each month.

Points South also has a few rentals sprinkled in among the sales listing. The Publication comes out at the first of every month.

When the time comes that you would like to start looking for a home of your own then Give Me Call and we can sit down together and find the home that's right for you! Remember, I can show you any listing on the MLS and even cut you a deal for homes listed by owner so give me a call today.

I know you will find this blog a valuable resource for finding a rental, so please, share with your friends!!

Hasta luego and thanks for reading!
