Here's some insight on the area, from a 12 year Mexico resident who retired here from California:

The Lake Chapala area is home to some younger expats (under 50) but is largely populated by older retired expats. Gray is a popular hair color and bald is common. As in most places, older people suffer from various health problems, and this area is no exception. For those with medical issues, there are many doctors practicing in the area and the Guadalajara hospitals are first class.

The good news is that the climate is benign with the accompanying opportunities to be outdoors often. A healthy lifestyle is easy, with fresh fruits and vegetables readily available. Good quality restaurant food at reasonable prices is here, too.

There are all sorts of charities which have been long established, including those serving children's needs.
There are many single people living here, with the females in greater numbers than the males. There are plenty ofsocial and special interest clubs.

From what you said in your post, it's likely that you could find this area a comfortable fit. Naturally, you'll need to visit for awhile to judge for yourself.
