Highlights of Guadalajara
Firstly this city has a population of 1.5 million. Located in western Mexico, it is famous for its tequila and mariachi music.
As with other Mexican cities, the town’s focus is its main square La Plaza Mayor. Next to it is the outstanding Metropolitan Cathedral. This is the heart of downtown. Furthermore to get around the city is real easy. The city had a grid pattern, similar to that of say Barcelona.
Moreover other must visit historic buildings includes the Expiatory Temple and the Instituto Cultural Cabanas. In addition there is Teatro Degollado too.
For nature lovers, visit Bosque Colomos. Not only are there beautiful trials, but also picnic areas. Likewise there are places for exercise. Additionally you can go on horseback should you wish. Other natural pursuits include a visit to the aquarium Acuario Michin. Or visit Zoo Guadalajara to see over 2,000 animals.
With the popularity of soccer, some may wish to visit the iconic Estadio Omnilife. It is a secure modern well equipped stadium. Housing one of the big four Mexican soccer teams – las Chivas.
While visiting a cemetery may not be to everybody’s taste, visit the Panteon de Belen. Better to go with a guide to discover what the tombstones reveal. Deemed really interesting, this can show you the history of the city and Mexican history too. As well as the myths and legends of the area. Mexicans have a fixation on El dia de los Muertos (the day of the deceased). So death and the spirits around it, are part and parcel of what make up Mexico.
For places to visit close by, take a trip to Tlaquepaque or Tonalá. Both are Mexican towns showing their cultural heritage. Or visit Glorieta Chapalita on a Sunday. Moreover you can see a local art market there.
Albeit other tours include a visit to a tequila distillery, a hike up Nevado de Colima Volcano and a visit to Lake Chapala.
