Focus on Mexico – A Learning Adventure


Focus On Mexico

In October November 2018, I had the opportunity to experience the Focus on Mexico Learning Adventure in Ajijic Mexico. My wife and I had been in Ajijic in August 2018 when Focus on Mexico had their August gathering and had the opportunity to speak with FOM attendees who were participating in the August 2018 session. The unanimous opinion of those August 2018 FOM attendees was “This is a fantastic program! Do it. For sure.”

We returned to the U.S. and decided I should enroll in the October (25-November 2nd 2018) Focus on Mexico forum. I did just that.

Frankly, I had a blast at Focus on Mexico…met fantastic people…learned more than I could have imagined…and will remember the Focus on Mexico learning adventure for the rest of my life. Honestly, it was priceless for me. Here’s how I really feel about Focus on Mexico:

Focus on Mexico by Bill Dahl


“Don’t hesitate! Register for Focus on Mexico NOW! This is NOT a seminar. It IS a learning experience – with others like you, exploring the possibilities of relocating to Lakeside. It is also the opportunity to meet new people, begin enduring friendships, meet those in the business of serving your everyday needs (transportation, moving, customs, immigration, legal matters, fitness, pet care, financial considerations, real estate, healthcare, transportation, investment, foreign currency exchange, financial planning, etc.). Don’t worry – you wont be locked in a dark room for a week! On the contrary, FOCUS staff intentionally immerses the group in a variety of  essential forays into the surrounding communities and culture. Expect to Learn. Ask Questions. Laugh. Explore. Wander. Have Fun! Register today – and complete this learning experience! It is an essential investment that will deliver practical and tangible benefits to you and yours for years to come! You will be very glad you did. We are.”

Every October these white Pelicans from Canada migrate to this small village in central Mexico. They stay until March. The village is Petatan – located on Lake Chapala – in the state of Jalisco.

Visit Lake Chapala, Ajijic and the surrounding communities – including those on the “other side” of the lake from Ajijic and Chapala.





Jiquilpan – A Pueblo Magico in Michoacan Mexico

Jiquilpan Mexico

Jiquilpan is located on the other side of Lake Chapala from Chapala and Ajijic – with a view of the lake in the distance. It is officially designated as a pueblo magico. It is a vibrant, small city, where the heartbeat of the village (as is typical in Mexico) is the central plaza.

I visited Jiquilpan on Saturday November 3, 2018 as the City was in the midst of celebration Dios de los Muertos. Typically celebrated between October 21 and November 2nd – Jiquilpan has a 4 day celebration from the 1st through the 4th.
