6 Reasons Why You’ll Love Guadalajara

6 Reasons Why You'll Love Guadalajara

Ahh, Guadalajara.

Being the city where my mother was born, it already holds a special place in my heart, but having visited countless times when I was a child, I had forgotten what was truly so spectacular about this city. After revisiting Guadalajara half a year ago, I was reminded of many reasons why I love that city so much.

Here are my top 6 reasons to why you’ll love Guadalajara as much as I do when you go off to explore!

1. THE FOOD

The food is always the best part about travelling. Always. In Guadalajara, you’ll have so many choices on what kinds of food to eat, but prepare yourself for SO many taco choices! I’ve always loved Tacos Al Vapor (pictured above), especially the potato kind.

2. THE CANDY

As much as I love sweets and wish I could eat them all, I, unfortunately, am very sensitive to sweets. HOWEVER, there are so many kinds of delicious Mexican candy! It’s also cheaper to buy candy in the markets. You’re always able to sample a lot of different kinds, too.

3. THE ARCHITECTURE

The architecture in Guadalajara is stunning, especially if you pay attention to details. Although, particularly in the center/downtown is where you’ll find amazing architecture all around you, as well as really historical landmarks.

4. THE MARKETS

There are many wonderful markets throughout the city, but check out San Juan de Dios Market. It is quite impressively the largest indoor market of the whole Latin America. You can find clothing, shoes, toys, candy, drinks, food and all other sorts of amazing goodies here!

5. THE CATHEDRAL

You simply cannot go to Guadalajara without visiting this famous cathedral. Trust me, inside is just as magnificent as the outside with its mix of Gothic and Renaissance architecture.

6. TEQUILA

Where else to drink Tequila than in its birthplace!? Jalisco, the second largest state in Mexico, is in fact where Tequila was born. I completely urge you to go on a Tequila tasting tour (you can check these ones out) and appreciate all the different types of Tequila there are.

But be warn… you may get drunk…
