Judy and Morley Eager virtually put Ajijic on the map when they arrived here from Ontario, Canada over 30 years ago.
They took over management of La Posada (the Old Posada) and have been in La Nueva Posada for 20 years which they built from scratch with their son, Michael Eager, and daughter-in-law, Maria Elena Eager Hinojosa.
