Retirement Options In Lake Chapala

Updated: Sep 23, 2023

The Moon Retirement Home, Ajijic, Mexico

Lake Chapala has been a retirement destination for at least 70 years now. Featuring a low cost of living and an incredible climate (often reported to be the second best in the world) you owe it to yourself to come and check it out.

With the influx of foreigners, comes the increased demand for retirement homes and the Lake Chapala area has many. In this blog I will feature two different ones offering different services in a a couple different price ranges.

The Moon

The Moon is a luxury facility, completed in 2018, offering long term residential rentals to independent individuals over the age of fifty. We offer hotel-style living and include breakfast and dinner, weekly housekeeping, laundry and most utilities in our monthly fee.

It is an exclusive community with 16 units in total including one studio, 12 one-bedroom suites and three two-bedroom, two-bathroom villas. All are ground floor units without steps. Prices for the units are as follows:

Studio (245 sq. ft) are $1100 USD/month

Casita (720 sq. ft.) 1 bedroom/1 bath are $1600 USD/month

Villa (1440 sq. ft.) 2 bedroom/2 bath are $2600 USD/month

(Second occupant is an additional charge of $500 USD/month)

Rents are all-inclusive. Amenities feature:

  • breakfast & supper

  • weekly maid

  • all utilities (internet, phone, electricity, satellite TV, water, and gas

  • heated pool

  • gym

  • off street parking

Note that this is for independent living. No health care services are provided at this facility.


Ohana is the dream of Alonzo and Ana, both of which studied in Guadalajara to become geriatric nurses. Located out in San Juan Cosala, a neighboring town to Ajijic, they currently have a nice mix of foreigners and Mexican citizens staying. The original house has 8 rooms and the specialize in dementia and Alzheimer cases. What stuck me most about this facility is the level of care, love, attention and smiles that I noticed in every employee working there. This is full care facility but a new house is now completed offering a lower level of care and more independence. Ohana offers short or long term stays and provide 3 meals per day for as low as $1200 USD per month, or for full care service up to $1800 per month. With a total of 14 employees you'll have every need looked after in this home-like environment with large yard and views of the lake.

For more information about these facilities, contact me through this website or our Facebook Page. We're always here to help. Thanks for reading!
