I cannot say I am familiar with this business, But Riberas is about 1/2 way between Chapala and Ajijic, or about 2-3 miles each way,,Hope you enjoy the area, It's great..

To me, Riberas is sort of like Mexico in general.... it can be both beautiful and shabby. The section where Villas de las Flores is located is secluded and very wooded, and the streets are wide but somewhat unkept. In one block you will see large houses/compounds (like las Flores) and the next block will be undeveloped and somewhat shoddy (overgrown, trashy). Of course many of the homes will be behind walls so one can only imagine what might be inside, and most are large. I find it a great area for diversity and for walking around in. This area has many birds and is lush.

You will be about 7 blocks down from the Carretera (main road between Chapala and Ajijic) where there is a bus stop. The first 3-4 blocks down Av. del Pilar are through a 'subdivision' of traditional houses called Mirasol; then you will "enter the woods" of Riberas. Further past las Flores will be streets/trails that will lead to and along the lake. Again, there you will see $400,000 places and in the next block a very poor Mexican national eeking out a living in a hut.

Access to Ajijic and/or Chapala will be on the Carretera, along which there are many businesses. Again, the bus comes by every 15 minutes or so and costs about 4-5 pesos to go into either town or anywhere in between.
