  • GUADALAJARA CALANDRIA

    by MECHES Updated Nov 2, 2003

    Favorite thing: these are the horse drawn carriages - LOCATED DOWNTOWN NEAR THE MUSEUM REGIONAL - OR OVER BY THE SAN FRANCISCO, ARANZAZU CHURCES - BE sure to ask FIRST HOW MUCH THEY CHARGE- normally it is by the hour- half, etc. 45 min. is about the best amt of time. Best time is go on a Sunday because it is horrible traffic during the week and big buses - but Sunday it is much calmer. If you go by the parque morelos - have them get you a shaved ice - raspado - coconut - to go - it costs about 15 pesos for a large.

    Favorite thing: See the main squares, or plazas. They are the heart of the city. The downtown area is relatively easy to see on a walking tour.

    Fondest memory: I love the Jalisco lingo! Being a Spanish speaker from South Texas, I was taken by the special way Guadalajarans speak, especially the way they say yes when in agreement. Instead of your typical 'si,' I kept hearing a Canadian sounding 'ay.'

    Favorite thing: See the Baranca's. It is absoulutely breathtaking. You are so high that as the hawks fly, they are flying at your eye level.

    Fondest memory: I love talking with the people. Even though I am not fluent in Spanish, they were very patient of me. I work with the deaf, and their sign language is definitely different than American Sign Language

    Favorite thing: 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.
