Jalisco is a magical region that lies to the southwest of Mexico City. It is a state of great cultural significance, and lives up to its motto — “Jalisco is Mexico” — in its contributions to the international image of Mexico (which include mariachi music and the iconic sombrero). Jalisco boasts a delightfully temperate climate, but if you schedule your boating trip during the winter or spring months, you can skip out on summer’s high humidity and the rainy season that lasts from June through October.
Jalisco is home to many stunning lakes that are sure to make any boater’s heart sing. Names like Laguna de Sayala and Laguna Atotonilco are as beautiful as their names, as is Lago de Chapala — which is the biggest freshwater lake in the country. The best way to experience these natural treasures is by boat, and you are sure to find many local chartering opportunities that will get you out on the water for a day in the sun surrounded by rolling hills.
Jalisco’s coastline is equally stunning, and boating is one of the most popular pastimes there as well. You can take out watercraft as small as a catamaran, to sleek sailboats and motor yachts, and even palatial mega yachts. Sportfishing is very popular in Jalisco, and there are a number of local fishing charters that can take you to some of the best and richest waters in Mexico.
