Guadalajara COA“Our family would always be so excited to go to Guadalajara for a visit. There is just so much to do here that everyone is satisfied and gets their BIG CITY fix.
For some it is the incredible shopping at one or many of the markets or modern shopping centers. For others it is a cultural opportunity to visit the theatre, opera, galleries and other venues and events.

Did I mention the home of Mariachi music, clowns on every other street corner, ballet folklorica?
We love it all. Just walking down the street, sitting in a square, visiting a church or cathedral…well it’s just dam inspiring.
I am getting drawn to Guadalajara just writing about it now. I can taste her in my mouth and feel her in my soul…Jeesh. Time for a visit.”
