Guadalajara

Pearl of the West

One of Mexico's cultural hubs, Guadalajara represents the home of mariachi music and hosts numerous large-scale events, ranging from international film festivals to celebrated book fairs. Based in a city known for its wide avenues and manicured parks, Guadalajara vacations serve as a good option for anyone looking for an alternative to the overcrowded and more expensive Mexico City. Sightseeing in Guadalajara remains one of the most rewarding experiences in Mexico, allowing visitors to discover a lively culinary scene, World Heritage-listed landmarks, and ethnically and socially diverse neighborhoods packed with friendly coffeehouses and hip nightclubs.

Where to stay in Guadalajara

If you want proximity to historical attractions and convenient access to public transport, you'll be able to find something to suit any budget downtown, with the central thoroughfare of Avenida Juarez offering perhaps the widest range of options. Slightly southwest of the center, the neighborhood of Ciudad del Sol also offers a good selection of budget-friendly options, while in the southeast, Tlaquepaque--formerly a city in its own right--features some fancier hotels in a more relaxed setting.
