When Do You Want To Go?

Home of Tequila and Mariachi  

Guadalajara is the second largest city in Mexico and the capital city of Jalisco state. The city is an important cultural centre that invented mariachi bands and tequila.  

Want to know how tequila is made? Take a day trip to the town of Tequila and wander around vast agave fields and distilleries. Spend some time understanding the production process and try locally sourced samples. How about taking a bottle or two of tequila home? 

Visit Lake Chapala - the largest lake in Mexico, which spans 48 miles from east to west. Ride a boat to one of the three islands, enjoy the charm of Chapala town, relax by the lakeside or enjoy the nearby hot springs and mud baths.  

Whilst in Guadalajara, the best local dishes to try are birria, a traditional slow-cooked Mexican stew and a salsa-drowned sandwich known as torta ahogada.  

Holidays to Mexico start from £3,999pp. Get in touch to find out prices for your perfect trip.

The Area

Guadalajara is a city filled with colonial architecture, galleries and museums - all easily accessible by staying in the downtown (Centro) area. From here, you can explore the Guadalajara Cathedral, nearby plazas, and fountains and maybe enjoy a nice cold cerveza (beer) at the oldest cantina in the city, Cantina La Fuente.  

The trendiest neighbourhood in Guadalajara is Colonia Americana. Here, you will find Avenida Chapultepec, which offers a range of international and local restaurants, charming cafes and lively bars.  

Located south of the city the colourful town of Tlaquepaque is well worth a visit. This neighbourhood showcases an abundance of local crafts, art galleries and museums.  

Best Time To Go

We recommended visiting between October and December. During this time, the weather is dry and cool. The yearly average temperature is around 25°C, with May being the hottest month. Visit in March for the famous Guadalajara International Film Festival.
