Hello. I am a retired 68 year-old male, seriously considering a move from the U.S. to either Ajijic/Lake Chapala, SMA, or Guanajuato. I am planning on taking an exploratory trip in about a month and spend a few days in each of those towns to determine whether a permanent, or at least a 6-month or year-long, move would suit me.. Also I want to check out monthly rentals while I'm there. In anticipation of my upcoming exploratory trip, I have done some online research into airbnbs in those towns, and was impressed by the reasonable prices and the many reviews that gave high ratings for even those in the $30-$40 per night price range. Just wondering if anyone knows from personal experience if the online reviews can be trusted? Would an airbnb be my best option for a short-term stay?

Just a few days in each place seems like a very short time. It certainly will not be enough time to discover, or learn much. Everything happens on "Mexican Time", not yours.

You would be better off looking for short term rentals in Ajijic and Chapala on some of the Facebook pages for those towns, such as Ajijic Newbies, Lake Chapala Rentals by Owner, and etc. Just go to facebook and search on Ajijic, Chapala Jocotepec (or whatever town you want to find), and Lakeside (that covers the whole south side of the lake).

AirBnb would be a great choice for short term rentals. The reviews can be trusted. Best of luck on your exploratory tour. I hope you find a place that fits for you.
