 Guadalajara City Guide and Directory

Guadalajara offers its visitors an authentic Mexican culture with many attractions and places of cultural interest. The city has parks, fountains, gardens, plazas, and tree-lined avenues that one can easily and safely enjoy by foot, and you can visit the many colonial treasures in downtown like the Town Hall, the Cathedral, and the Government Palace.

All are full of historical wealth, including the cultural arts in the Degollado Theater or the impressive mural by Jose Clemente Orozco (famous painter of the Mexican mural movement in the 1920s) at the Cabanas Cultural Institute. Don't forget to attend to the exhibitions of pre-Colombian art at the many museums of the city. Some areas retain their rustic atmosphere so you can capture a slower pace of life in contrast with the typical metropolitan way of life that is bustling in the center of Guadalajara.

For transportation, Guadalajara is connected to the rest of Mexico via a modern highway system. For all of the many attributes and qualities the city has been given the name "Pearl of The West".

Hotel options in Guadalajara has increased as the city has become more business and culturally oriented. Guadalajara offers a great selection of hotels and resorts, from colonial-style lodgings to modern resorts which provide premium comfort and excellent services to their guests.

The many haciendas in Guadalajara have been restored and now offer service as hotels or restaurants. They represented the wealth of the owner of those early times, and are decorated and built in the elegant manner of the period.
