Best place to stay in Guadalajara
If you would like to visit the historical and beautiful city of Guadalajara, the best place to stay is in the historical centre, which can be found near the Plaza de Armas, as this is where the majority of the city´s points of interest are located. In the centre you will find the Cathedral, which is one of the country´s most important and symbolic architectural monuments, along with the Palacio Municipal and the Palacio Del Gobierno. Out of all of the city´s important tourist attractions, the Instituto Cultural Cabañas stands out as an emblematic place to learn about the city´s history and everything that has happened here.
Guadalajara is the birth place of the Mariachi, which you will hear and see all around the city, although their traditional meeting point is the Plaza Mariachi which is also set within the historical centre.
Another place which is not to be missed is the pedestrian Calle Independencia, where you will find many historical buildings, galleries, craft shops, small restaurants and traditional street food stalls.
Nearby to the city, you can also visit Tequila, where the famous liquor takes its name from, and where you will be able to try some of the liquor, as well as visit the agave plantations. A visit to the Tlaquepaque and Tonala villages is also recommended, which can be found just a few kilometres outside of the city, where many Mexican artisan products are manufactured.
