Shopping for something unique?
If you're shopping for unique, handcrafted pottery, furniture, etc. you should visit the surrounding towns of Guadalajara. You will get something more authentic and less touristy, at a better price. The towns of Tonala and Tlaquepaque are great shopping areas.
I went to near Chapala,...
I went to near Chapala, Ajijic, and Jocotepec, which boast year round beautiful climate, and rich Mexican culture. Many North Americans who know this not only come to visit, but come and make this area their permanent home. In fact Chapala hosts perhaps the largest community of North Americans (Americans and Canadians), as well as other nationals, than other part in Mexico. Here is a picture of the bus station in Chapala, where I found it relatively easy to travel to and from Guadalajara to the communities which surround Lake Chapala, Mexico's largest lake.
