Tlajomulco de Zúñiga

Jalisco

A community with colonial charm

In the center of the region of the state of Jalisco is Tlajomulco de Zúñiga, a city that has a picturesque historic center full of colonial architecture, colorful streets and with beautiful religious temples that you find along the way, as well as the surrounding nature around this city, and its mountains and hills that show you a beautiful natural spectacle.


Part of the metropolitan area of Guadalajara, you can recognize the modern part of this place with several squares and shopping centers; Tlajomulco is the center of a large part of the industry and commerce area. This is also where the Guadalajara International Airport is located, thanks to how far it is from the great metropolis.

This Jalisco community was conquered in 1530 to form part of the province of Nueva Galicia and it was like that for more than 300 years until on March 27, 1939 when it obtained its current name, in honor of the revolutionary General Eugenio Zúñiga, becoming the municipal seat . But the historical background of this city dates from the time when the Nahua people passed through this place, which was a powerful indigenous people dominating what is now known as Acatlán, Tala and other nearby towns.

The ideal destination to admire Jalisco culture

Tlajomulco de Zúñiga is famous for its delicious and appetizing gastronomy, here the birria and carnitas stand out, its customary drink is almond Tequila and its typical sweets are the beloved “pulparindos” (made with tamarind) and marzipan.

The typical huaraches, roofing tiles, ceramics and burnished pottery can be found here. Also part of their crafts is the ‘’ queso negro ’’, made with black corn, cream, milk, cocoa and basalt stone (rich in magnesium and iron).

How to get there?

The easiest way is by plane, arriving at the Guadalajara International Airport on the outskirts of Tlajomulco de Zúñiga, buses leave every 20 minutes to that destination, passing through the small towns of Carillo Diaz and Parque Agua Azul.
