The history of the Rotary Club of Ajijic began in September 2001, when founding members visited the Club Rotario Guadalajara A.C. to seek its sponsorship of a new Rotary Club in the Lake Chapala area. The Club Rotario Guadalajara A.C. offered its full support, and by February 2002, the required number of members was reached to charter the club.

In March 2002, the Rotary Club of Ajijic was officially recognized and its officers and members installed, with Enrique Rojas Vargas as its first President.

The Rotary Club of Ajijic is a English-speaking club in Mexico, and has been serving the Lake Chapala area since 2002. Its members are business and professional men and women, many retired, who dedicate their time, expertise, and talents to helping others in their local communities, and internationally through the programs of The Rotary Foundation.
