A cosmopolitan city, Guadalajara has made significant contributions to Mexican culture. The second largest city in the country, it is the birthplace of tequila, mariachi music and the Mexican Hat Dance. The Historic District features picturesque plazas and repurposed colonial buildings that now house museums, such as the Regional Museum of Guadalajara. While the Chapultepec neighborhood boasts fashionable restaurants, coffee houses and entertainment venues, the suburbs of Tlaquepaque and Tonala have a Bohemian folk art atmosphere.
Named for the “Father of Mexican independence,” Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla International Airport (GDL) is situated approximately 10 miles south of Guadalajara. Its location along the Guadalajara-Chapala Highway makes traveling easier to points on interest in Guadalajara, such as the mural of “The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin” inside a 16th-century cathedral. The scenic shoreline of Lake Chapala is also nearby.
