Insider tipps

by TSM_student

Hello, Hallo, hola, bonjour,....

Some tourism students are going to attend the summer universtiy in guadalajara and as we are spending there just 4 weeks (which is really not a long time, considered that we have school from 8am to 5pm) i am looking for some good insider tipps / Must DOs / Must Visit /good places to go (restaurants, bars, clubs..) to make the most out of the time there.

maybe also some tipps about transportation (bus tickets and so on)

Thx a lot!

Plaza Tapatia, Plaza de los Mariachis, Mercado San Juan de Dios, eat a Torta Ahogada (drowned sandwich), its a specialty in Guadalajara. Have fun!

I'm sleepy right now but I will try to remember to let you know of many more.

My favorite bar is La Maestranza (the one downtown ON Maestranza, not the one in the Zona Rosa). They have an amazing tequila list and super-cheap bar food. Which university are you attending? I lived near UNIVA (west on Tepeyac or Guadalupe, near Plaza del Sol) and developed an unhealthy addiction to the quesadillas at our neighbourhood menuderia... they would stuff them with potatos or squash blossoms for me because I was a vegetarian. You will probably have lots of cheap restaurants in your neighbourhood- try all them to find your favorite! La O is a great restaurant near Centro Magno (upscale international cuisine) and nearby there is also another great upscale Mexican restaurant called El Sacromonte. In the Zona Rose there is another "international" restaurant called Coscafe that has great pizzas and pastas, if you tire of Mexican food. Avoid Santo Coyote- though many people recommend it as a "special" dining experience, all five us us agreed it was the single worst meal we ate in Mexico!

We went to a few nightclubs but none really stood out as being very special to me, though I remember there were a lot of foreigners at one called Wall Street.

Great things to do include riding the Tequila Express (WORTH IT... it's kind of touristy but most of the tourists will be Mexican- we were the only foreigners in our entire car!), visiting Guachimontones and calling in sick on a Friday to take a long weekend on the coast (I recommend Sayulita). All my trip info is here:

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.

Teatro Degollado

by anagrettel

The best theater in México. No kidding! is a piece of art! The Degollado theater is located in the city's downtown and was inaugurated on 13 September 1866 .

Inside there are paintings by Jacobo Gálvez and Gerardo Suárez from 1861.
