Tlaquepaque, Guadalajara and Surrounding Area
Guadalajara, the most Mexican of Mexico’s cities, offers tourists and travelers alike a wide range of traditional and contemporary attractions to ensure a fulfilling and enjoyable visit to Mexico’s second largest city.
Home of Mariachi, Mexico’s traditional folk music, Guadalajara retains a colonial feel with its numerous plazas and stunning architecture, and without the apparent dangers and city rush of the capital. Moreover, if you’d like to sample the local brew – Tequila is just an hour away and is a must for any visitor to Mexico.
Enlivened by a substantial student population, Guadalajara is also a growing attraction for the younger generation and guarantees many a lively Tequila fuelled night out at any of the spirited barsor nightclubs that scatter the city. Jalisco state is also a hotbed of adventure sports such as surfing and paragliding.
“GLC is structured in such a way as to give each student individual support, something I appreciated very much as a lone traveler in a foreign country.”
