The Most Mexican City in México.

Guadalajara, Called often the pearl of the west, it's a big and amazing city with a beautiful and interesting contrast of historic and modern. I see it as the perfect destination for tourist that are looking to visit a very Mexican city, a festive and traditional city that have all the luxuries and size of the big cities, without loosing the traditional Mexican touch.

Guadalajara is the second biggest city in Mexico, with a population over 3 million. Guadalajara dates to the 16th century, the México's colonial, and that's the evident beauty of the city. A city Famous for being the birthplace of the most famous Mariachis, you’ll also found some of the best handmade items, and festivals. The town of Tequila is minutes away, and it's a must visit place when visiting Guadalajara, to taste and learn about the world recognize Mexican drink "Tequila".

Some treasure hunting......

One of the best artistic treasures in Guadalajara are the José Clemente Orozco's finest frescos; painted in 1938-39, the most famous is probably “The Man in Flames” ("Hombre de Fuego"), there’s more around de city to find, and one as amazingly beautiful as the other.

A place Full of Magic places like the historic city centre, the catholic catedral and churches are nice to visit even for non catholics, the haciendas and small towns near to the city (Tequila, Tapalpa, teuchitlan, etc..)
