"Tlaquepaque" Guadalajara Things to Do Tip by jonbarb709

Guadalajara Things to Do: 74 reviews and 137 photos

Everyone will definitely go to the Mercado Libertad (located to the right of Plaza Tapatia), the big shopping "flea market". But you need to make a trip to Tlaquepaque, its about 20 minutes from downtown. We made the trip on our own by bus. Its an upscale, rather than the flea market atmosphere at Mercado Libertad (which we loved) but Tlaquepaque was a cut above. This is a more fashionable place and has several stores with designer clothes, leather, jewelry, and handicraft. This is definitely not a hard sell place and you should not be hasseled here. A definite stop is at Sergio Bustamente shop. (jewelry,ceramic, bronze.)
There are several excellent restaurants in the area. This is a walking town.

Address: Take a bus/
Directions: Twenty minutes from downtown

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
