Guadalajara is Mexico's second largest city,
and a great destination for vacationers seeking
a taste of authentic Mexican culture. Dating
back to the 16th century, Guadalajara's rich
cultural heritage is evident everywhere you
look, and this full-day excursion combines the
majesty of this colonial gem with some of the
best shopping in Latin America.
Guadalajara Highlights and Shopping tour begins
with a relaxing 45-minute flight from Puerto
Vallarta to Guadalajara. As we pass over the
stunning Sierra Madre Mountains, you'll enjoy
scenic views of towering canyons, deep-carved
riverbeds, a patchwork of Blue Agave plantations
and extinct volcanoes that dot the landscape.
Guadalajara is an incredibly diverse and stately
city with amazing qualities, both modern and
historic. The birthplace of Mariachi music,
Guadalajara is home to Mexico's most inspiring
16th century architecture, monuments, fountains,
parks and tree lined avenues, and we'll spend
the morning exploring the historically rich
treasures found in the heart of the "Most Mexican
of all Mexican Cities."
Next, we'll visit the Tlaquepaque neighborhood
of Guadalajara, a Colonial-era suburb known
for its locally crafted works of art, ceramics
and antiques. The prices here are far lower
than in Puerto Vallarta, and the shaded pedestrian
streets and European architecture create a wonderful
atmosphere for the delicious lunch you'll enjoy
before we continue on to the open-air shopping
district of Tonalá.
Many of the ceramics, pottery and finest dinnerware
sold all over México are made by the estimated
six thousand artisans living in Tonalá. This
village of craftsmen features open workshops
which sell to the public, making a stop in Tonalá
a must for savvy shoppers.
