I am traveling to Chapala next Saturday for a week respite from the Cleveland cold! This is my first trip to Mexico (not counting Tijuana when I lived in San Diego). I have booked what appears to be a nice apartment a block off the town square. My week will be spent on foot, just relaxing and checking the place out.
I am on a fairly restricted diet of 1800 calories per day. I avoid red meat, saturated fats, carbs and go for the protein most meals. Also, I don't drink carbonated beverages. Despite these limitations, I love the taste of well-prepared foods, and I am adventurous.
Can experienced Chowhounds recommend some places to eat and dishes to try? What about safe non-carbonated beverages?
Thanks so much for your time and input!
