Mexico's second-largest city is the ultimate fusion of the past and present, and both will give you a vacation you'll be talking about for years to come. Guadalajara's heart is the Centro Historico, where meticulously preserved buildings from the colonial era provide a picturesque backdrop suitable for everything from a destination wedding to a meeting of long-lost friends.
The Jalisco state, of which Guadalajara is the capital, is the birthplace of tequila. You can find more than 200 varieties here, from the family recipe to gourmet bottles with exotic ingredients that will please the most refined palates.
To go with your tequila, Guadalajara is also the birthplace of mariachi music.
Guadalajara makes it an ideal spot for a great family vacation, too. With a fantastic zoo, children's amusement parks, rodeos and a plethora of festivals and celebrations at all times of the year, there's always something to do.
A historic city with a modern outlook, Guadalajara will delight any vacationer!
