locker in the center of town to put my suitcase for the day

by oslocairo

Hi!

I am flying in Guadaljara and arriving early in the morning. My destination is Guanajuato, but I don't have to be there until the evening. I would like to go into the center of Guadalajara to see the sites. Is there a place that rents lockers for suitcases like at a bus station in the center?

I understand I am to take the bus from the new bus station to go to Guanajuato, but I also understand it is out of town. Wouldn't it make more sense to store my suitcase in a locker in the center of town? But where?

Or, is it a better idea to go to the new bus station by taxi from the airport, leave my bag there,buy my bus ticket for Guanajuato, and then take a bus into the center?

Thanks.

I like the idea of going to the bus station directly from the airport and keeping your bag there.

I know you've read this before, but don't ever hail a taxi in Mexico unless you just have to. (hailing a cab in Guanajuato is safe, but unless you're exhausted, why would you want to?) In your case upon arrival in Guadalajara buy your fixed price voucher INSIDE the airport. Always be cognizant of your change when making transactions anywhere in Mexico. I have offended people in this forum before by saying that shortchanging gringos is a sport in Mexico, but Im going to offend them again- it is. I think part of the problem is that people behind counters realize that travelers are nervous, tired, and not comfortable generally with the currency, so they try to take advantage. If you or anybody who reads this are being shortchanged, protest vehemently. You wont get into trouble and you can keep your change.

When you are at the bus station ask for a schedule from ETN and Primera plus, you might get ideas for day trips.

You may decide to go directly to Guanajuato without going into town, but if you do go into town you should be able to see a lot of good stuff in a couple hours.

From the bus station to town take a bus marked Centro (this is true of any place in Mexico) From town to the bus station take a bus marked Nueva Central. So, pretty much wherever you are in Mexico Centro to downtown; Central to the bus station.

Thanks osoeno for the good information. There must be lockers at the new bus station. I will only be carrying a carryon and a camera bag, so if worse comes to worse, I could roll it around with me for the day. But boy will I look like the Tourist. People will probably think I'm lost, rolling this way and that. Oh well.

Thanks for remindng em to count the money. I always double check no matter what country I am in, since such things can happen anywhere.

If there are no lockers, never something to count on, I was wondering about just renting a really cheap hotel room for the day to keep your stuff in? however that might not be safe either! maybe in the center you can have to something to eat at a decent restaurant and then offer to give them something to keep the bag for a bit - Mexicans are generally quite helpful...

Thanks jenny for your suggestion. I never thought of that as an option, but I won't have anything of value in my case anyway, so perhaps.

Travel Tips for Guadalajara

What does mean Tapatio = people from Guadalajara

by SerSol

La palabra tapatío proviene del vocablo nahuatl "tlapatiotl", que significa "que vale por tres", El "tlapatiotl" no era otra cosa que el sistema comercial que se utilizaba en los tianguis de Guadalajara (en ninguna otra parte de México) para el "trueque" o intercambio de productos durante el siglo XVII. Un "tlapatiotl", como lo dice su significado, equivalia a tres piezas y era utilizado para que el "trueque" de productos fuera justo y equitativo, de esta forma se intercambiaban tres piezas por tres piezas, independientemente del tamaño de las mismas.

En un momento dado, la gente de fuera de Guadalajara escuchaba tanto la palabra durante sus visitas a la ciudad, que creyeron que los "tlapatiotls" eran las personas y comenzaron a llamar de este modo a los habitantes de Guadalajara. Para los españoles resultaba complicado pronunciar correctamente la palabra nahuatl y la fueron adecuando hasta derivar en la palabra TAPATÍO.

El gentilicio que nos corresponde es Guadalajarense, pero esta palabra ha sido sustituida y a partir del siglo XIX el ayuntamiento de la ciudad adopta la palabra TAPATIO como gentilicio para todas las personas hechas, nacidas y vividas en Guadalajara. Esta es la razon por la cual se dice que los habitantes de Guadalajara, los TAPATIOS, valen por tres.

Instituto Cultural Cabanas

by isolanthui

This neo-classical landmark, designed by Manuel Tolsa, originally served as an orphanage from 1810 until 1979, after which the building became a cultural venue and an art school. The walls and dome of the main chapel are adorned with a series of murals painted by Jose Clemente Orozco, including his renowned work, 'The Man of Fire'. The cultural center also hosts permanent and visiting art exhibitions.

Rotonda de los heroes ilustres

by anagrettel

A beautiful circular monument-cementery located next to Cathedral. This is the resting place for the military, political, and artistic elite born in Jalisco. The stone markers stand in a double circle around an eternal flame.

Among the famous buried here are the artists Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, José Clemente Orozco, and Gerardo Murillo; presidents Sebastian Lerdo de Tejada, Valentín Gómez Farías, and Plutarco Calles; musicians Jaime Nuño (author of the Mexican national anthem), Juventino Rosas, and Agustín Lara; and outstanding citizens such as the philanthropist and writer Carlos Pellicer. In the year 2000, the remains of educator Irene Robledo, the first woman given this honor, were transferred to the Rotonda.

Stop in the building at the entrance and the guard will give you a map with a list (in Spanish and English) of those buried here, which includes biographical information.

Open: Daily 6am-6pm.Free admission
