Things to Do in Guadalajara

Tequila Tour
Tour the birthplace of Guadalajara’s favourite party drink on a trip to the town of Tequila. You’ll roam through the fields where farmers cultivate their agave crops and visit a traditional ‘tequilero’ distillery to sample the very best of this fiery tipple. And once you’re brimming with tequila expertise, there’s even time for a bite to eat!
The Government Palace
‘Palatial’ is exactly the word you’d use to describe this grand government building. Its Baroque exterior is rich in intricate detail, while inside, a series of frescoes by Mexican artist José Clemente Orozco leap from the walls. Despite housing government offices, the palace is open to the public Monday to Friday – and best of all, it’s completely free to visit.
Guachimontones Pyramids Tour
The unusual circular stacks of the Guachimontones Pyramids belong to a pre-hispanic culture, the ‘Teuchitlán tradition’, dating as far back as 400 BC. On a tour you’ll learn all about this long-lost society, their beliefs and their unique architectural style. You’ll also journey through the scenic Jalisco valley and visit nearby Vega Lake, which draws flocks of migratory birds.

Bustling city with great markets and architectural creations....you could think you were in Europe. Great city for people watching and walking. Enjoyed some street musicians. Also, enjoyed biking on Sunday when some of the streets were closed to motor traffic.

Guadalajara is such a beautiful city especially the downtown and Chapultepec areas. It's very cultural. Wish I could have had more time to explore the city.
