Guadalajara Travel Guide: 57 reviews and 137 photos

Guadalajara is one of the unmissable old colonial capitals of New Spain. However, there is no mistaking the French influence in the architecture and food. We particularly enjoyed the fact that this city, although fairly cosmopolitan, is no tourist mecca. It is authentically Mexican, which also means that people are generally very friendly.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great food, nice people, cool architecture, great climate
  • Cons:Must struggle in Spanish, poverty takes getting used to for lucky "NorteAmericanos".
  • In a nutshell:Not a resort- a major city- a real place- for the better.
