Buy a phone card - - Guadalajara
Buy a phone card -

Buy a phone card as there are pay phone all over easy to use and my USA cell phone did not work

Beware !!!!, of the phones plastered all over some towns, usually on the front of businesses. They are marked "TO CALL LONG DISTANCE TO THE USA & CANADA, SIMPLY DIAL 0" The writing is in black and USA is in blue letters with CANADA in red letters. They also have pictures of credit cards on the signs. The phones are put there by a private phone company and are VERY, VERY EXPENSIVE. You will probably faint when you see your phone bill or credit card bill. It is best to purchase Pre-Paid cards or dial 01 800 111-SAVE from any phone in México. You can use this number to make credit card calls or collect calls.

tourist booths - Guadalajara
tourist booths

I felt safer in Guadaljari than most large North American cities they have helpful tourist booths in the major tourist areas and everywhere tourist police on bikes in the places tourist hang out.

You can visit the State Tourism Office, at Morelos 102 - Plaza Tapatía, in the historic center. They keep a current listing of most events and will be glad to give you a copy.
Anyway felt the place was helpful and friendy

However it is a big city and got to figure the tourist police are there for a reason so kep your valubles tucked away or in your hotel safe.

Phone: 3668-9329.
