Spend some time at this colorful shopping plaza on the fringes of Guadalajara.
Once a small artisan village on the outskirts of Guadalajara, Tlaquepaque has been absorbed by the urban sprawl and now lies halfway between the city center and the airport. Easily accessible by taxi or public transit, Tlaquepaque proudly houses what could be considered the ultimate Mexican market experience. A restaurant/bar/mariachi plaza inserted in the old heart of the town, El Parián will make you feel like you've stepped back in time to pre-revolutionary Mexico. A favorite of locals is La Casa Fuerte.
