Traveling is about being inspired, enjoying new experiences and collecting meaningful memories. And all of that starts with studying up on your destination! Are you ready to find out some basic facts about Guadalajara?
Guadalajara lies 100 miles (161 kilometers) to the southwest of Aguascalientes, a significant city.
This area of Jalisco boasts a population of approximately 1,600,000 people.
You won't have to be on the lookout for too long to find the magic in Guadalajara. You'll find it right there at Hospicio Cabanas. This world-renowned sight brings wanderers from every corner of the globe.
So many things to do and so little time. If you're keen to experience what the city has to offer, add Plaza de Armas and Metropolitan Cathedral to your travel itinerary. If you have an extra day, try to stop by Basilica de Zapopan and University of Guadalajara Assembly Hall as well.
Public squares tell many tales. Stroll across well-trodden paths and search for clues to the area's history at Plaza Tapatia. Want some more ideas? An excellent way to truly get a taste of an area's culture is to wander its busy marketplaces. Browse the produce and shop like the locals do at El Parian. And that's not all there is. Theater can challenge our expectations and asks us to aspire to higher things. Attend a play at Degollado Theater and expand your way of thinking.
Stow your tray table, fasten your seatbelt and prepare to experience Guadalajara! Once you arrive at Don Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla International Airport (GDL), the bustling main streets will be only 11 miles (18 kilometers) to the north of here.
