Guadalajara is the second largest city in Mexico, and it is bursting with culture. Guadalajara’s extremely well-preserved colonial architecture creates a sophisticated atmosphere for the city’s beautiful parks and plazas. Detailed fountains and rustic churches set the scene for museums, galleries, and unparalleled shopping. Enjoy lively music in the hometown of Mariachi. Nearby in Tlaquepaque and Tonala, native crafts and folk art abound.


An amazing city with so much to offer. From as much delicious food as you can eat to dancing the night away with salsa and Bachata. Bring sunscreen and a hat - even in spring the temperatures are high enough to be like the hottest summer.
