Easter (Dia dePascua) in Ajijic, Lake Chapala
This Sunday April 16th Easter Sunday. This is the busiest time of year in, Ajijic, Lake Chapala.
A must see is the Passion Play put on by the residents of the area. It starts Good Friday, April 14th and ends with the Cruxifiction Sunday, April 16th. Different scenes are depicted in different areas in Ajijic, San Antonio Tlayacapan and Chapala.

Also there are also listings of the different Church Services and times at the various Churches in the area.
El Dia de Pascua (Easter) is the biggest holiday of the year here and is even bigger than Christmas (Navidad).
This week is called Semana Santa and a lot of businesses and services will be closed part or most of this week. So before you venture out make sure where you are going is open for business. Particularly, if you need to get banking done.
The snowbirds are starting to leave this week as most of them like to be up north with their families for Easter.
That means less traffic and more parking and, in general, quieter.
It is a very exciting time of year and we heartily recommend that you take in part of or all of the Passion Play.
Happy Easter and Feliz Pascua to all (a todos).
