Guadalajara Metropolitan Area

Guadalajara Metropolitan Area contains Mexico's second largest city, which serves as a lively and cosmopolitan capital of the Jalisco state. Guadalajara Metropolitan Area vacations generally include tours of architectural landmarks and major historical sites scattered across the big city, which boasts a decidedly European look and feel thanks to its broad avenues and manicured parks. This densely populated area hosts numerous festivals, from celebrations of mariachi music to events held in honor of the local version of Virgin Mary, Virgen de Zapopan. Meeting the natives at these colorful gatherings remains one of the best ways to soak in the region's vibe and get a good feel for this urban area, which serves as an alternative holiday idea to the overwhelming Mexico City.
