Moving to Lake Chapala MexicoMoving to Lake Chapala Mexico

Moving to Lake Chapala Mexico? Or are you thinking about moving to Lake Chapala Mexico?

Hi there. I’m Bill the Geek. I’m a United States citizen. I’m a graduate of Dartmouth College and The Ohio State University and I’ve lived in Mexico for fifteen years.

I have lived in Lake Chapala for the last two years and I love it here. I lived my first ten years in Puerto Vallarta. I lived the next three years in Guadalajara, and then I moved here to Lake Chapala.

Lake Chapala is ranked internationally as one of the top best climates in the world. Some people rank Lake Chapala as the best climate in the world, others rank it as number two or number three. What does that mean? It means that in the summer, it will be about sixty degrees in the morning and about eighty degrees in the day with zero humidity. It means that in the winter time, it will be around fifty-five degrees in the morning and about seventy-two degrees in the day time.

I’m from Ohio. It snows there. I say no more about that situation. I graduated from Dartmouth College. Dartmouth is in New Hampshire. I remember in Januarys I would walk to classes in the morning and the temperature would be fifty below zero.

Moving to Lake Chapala MexicoIf you are thinking about moving to Lake Chapala Mexico, then the climate is one of the major benefits for sure.

Living in Puerto Vallarta was enjoyable, but there is a reason that many American and Canadians go there from October 15th and stay until April 15th. Why would that be? Because in the summer time Puerto Vallarta is hot and humid as hell. In the summer, it gets so hot in the day time that you don’t see hardly any people on the streets or even at the beach. The heat lingers into the night time making sleeping situations uncomfortable. Lake Chapala is the answer to that situation.

I wrote an Amazon bestseller about moving to Puerto Vallarta, you can find it on The book is titled, “American Living Large in Mexico,” by Bill the Geek.  You can see it one Amazon by clicking here.

Now that I’ve been in Lake Chapala for two years, I’ve decided to write a book about moving to Lake Chapala Mexico. I’m not sure what the title will be yet, but the book is about one month from being complete.

After living in Mexico for fifteen years, I put together a comprehensive list of things that are extremely important to people that are considering making the move to Lake Chapala. This list of information includes but is not limited to;
