Guadalajara is the cradle of Mexican traditions, a place full of vitality and romance.
Guadalajara is a big city that looks and feels like the country. Year round spring temperatures, ever flowering sprawling gardens and parks make it seem more like a giant country club than Mexico's second largest city. This is the home of several famous Mexican phenomena: Mariachis, the leather throated musicians who belt out songs at the drop of a sombrero; Tequila, the heady national drink; and the Mexican Hat Dance, "Jarabe Tapatio," and Charros, talented equestrians. The whole area has an Old World air of colonial charm and grace.
Guadalajara, nicknamed “The Pearl of the West” is rich in architecture and boasts a stirring history. Priceless treasures such as ancient monasteries, mansions, and palaces are a backdrop to the everyday life of its citizens, who, without losing sight of their roots, enjoy a modern city with vibrant industries and a high quality of life. The city’s towers, courtyards, and fountains and its religious frescoes and stained glass reflect more than 450 years of history. A highlight for visitors is the regional cuisine, which distills and blends the best of pre-Hispanic and Spanish traditions.
In Guadalajara you will find many opportunities and sites to craft the wedding of your dreams, with easy access for your local and foreign guests. You can also choose Guadalajara as a romance travel destination, since close to the prosperous metropolis you can make one day romantic trips to Tequila, Zapopan, Tlaquepaque and Tonala, picturesque towns full of tradition where you will discover the crafts and soul of Mexico.
