shopping for tea, yarn, needlework materials

by patpacific

I will be shopping in GDL this weekend and am looking for stores that sell
good loose tea. Also needlework supplies and materials. Please include
address and bus/taxi info. Our tour will include Tonola and Tlaquepaque
and the Gran Plaza, and I am familiar with the big 3 story market.
Thanks, Pat in Vallarta

Re: shopping for tea, yarn, needlework materials

Pat, I can help you with one of your questions, needlework.

What you need is something called "Mercería", mercerías sell estambre which is yarn and agujas which means needles.

If you visit Hidalgo Avenue and Santa Monica in the city of Guadalajara, just a couple blocks from the Cathedral in downtown, you will find many stores selling knitting material or material para tejido.

You can find addresses on the yellow pages, seccion amarilla, but it's just easier to head to these avenues and look in the stores.

To give you an idea of orientation, if you look at the map, you will notice that your tour is making a triangle in the city, Tonala in the northeast side of the city, tlaquepaque to the south of tonala and Gran Plaza all the way to the west. The place I am refering is almost in the middle of this triangle.

I am afraid I am not familiar with the bus or taxi fares since I always drive a car when I visit Gdl! It would be one useful idea to have a website with a taxi rate calculator.

Good luck and I hope you find the stores.

I was in Guadalajara when I was seven so I don't remember that much, but I do remember that it was a beautiful place. The beach in Puerta Vallarta was awesome and was clean. People are very friendly.

The people of Mexico are the absolute nicest, most generous people in the world. If you have the pleasure of making friends with some of them you will no doubt have a friend for life. This picture is the extended family of my father's friend, John at their home in Santana. Pops and John are on the left.

by RobertViolin

I recommend a side trip to Ajijic, if only to see beautiful art next to Mexico's Lake Chapala, which combine to give a very peaceful and artistic flavor to your Guadalajara vacation. Also, it is a excellent way to get away from the hustle and bustle that is in the city.
Ajijic is small but very, very cozy. Many people there speak English, as many of them are expatriate Americans and Canadians.

Guadalajara and Janitzio , Mexico

by patricia28

GUADALAJARA
It is a big, noisy city with nice people. Guadalajara is full of squares and water sources that accompany the pretty architecture of the city.

The night:
During the nights Guadalajara is alive, is unforgettable to go to drink something and hear the "Mariachis", local singers, who bring all the mexican music!

"Janitzio Island"

The next stop was Janitzio Island in the state of Michoacán, close to Morelia City.
This is a beautiful Island with all the native thing. There is a big market where the people sell theirs own crafts and food. It is one of the places that you can't miss. Just be sure about the hour of the last boat to go back to the city.

Guadalajara, Mexico

by taryn21

"Big city"

I just was in Guadalajara for a couple days, but it is a beautiful city. Guadalajara is the capital of the state of Jalisco, Mexico's second largest city with a population of about 7 million. Many people live in the surrounding areas, there are many small towns outside the city. There are lots of nice shopping malls, such as the Centro Magno, which is several stories and has a large cineplex. Great architecture around the city also.

"The Governor's Palace"

This is a huge mural about the Mexican Revolution located in one of the stairwells inside. There is no admission to tour the grounds. For more information, check out my must see activities.
