Tapalpa

Anyone know if Tapalpa would be a good retirement locale? Not a whole lot of info on the Mexconnect boards, that I could find. Will be visiting a few areas the end of Sept/first of Oct. and was wondering if this would be a place I should place on my list.
Thanks,
Becki

Guess it depends on your definition of what would make a good retirement locale?

We spent a weekend there last month. It's a very sweet, picturesque town in the mountains. It also seemed quite lively for a town as small as it is. Very prosperous. Must get tons of visitors from Guadalajara. A (man made?) lake outside of town, with quite a few new houses getting built nearby. There's even a golf course.

The entire area is beautiful.

It's a bit remote. I think it takes about 30-45 (?) minutes to drive down the mountain to Sayula, a fairly good sized city with services. Probably gets a bit cold at that elevation during the winter. Just depends what you're looking for.
