Chapala with Sara and CB to be tourist. We caught the bus out of Ajijic for a trip to the market. Mercado Libertad (Liberty Market), better known as Mercado San Juan de Dios (San Juan de Dios Market) is located in the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. It is one of the largest indoor markets in the country with over 2600 stalls. The market has three levels, and laid out so each floor has a theme. There are little paths through vast amounts of goods that you walk. It is just incredible. Guadalajara's Catedral Metropolitana (1568) , Plaza de la Liberacion (Liberation Square), and Plaza Tapatia which stretches out over seven city blocks are just a few of the other things to see. Guadalajara being Mexico second largest city has so much to see there is no way possible to take it all in one day.. Mezcala Island, also known as El Presidio, is located a few kilometers southeast of the town of Mezcala on the northern shore of Lake Chapala, a few miles east of Chapala. From 1812 to 1816, a small band of Mexican rebels held off the Spanish army and navy against overwhelming odds. Tired of the humiliation, the Spanish finally negotiated a peaceful surrender with the insurgents. The island then became a Spanish prison for many years. Rumors have it that indigenous structures and hieroglyphics existed on the island before the fortifications were built, but if so all traces disappeared with the construction. Jocotepec, Ajijic Tianguis, hiking the mountains.
