Gesamtübersicht

We live in a beautiful walkable neighborhood with mature trees and loads of places to eat and enjoy. One of the best taco restaurants in the city is across the street. We have half a dozen good restaurants within 2 blocks and another 30 or so within a 7 minute walk. There is small local fruit and meat store right across the street. There are artisan bakeries, ice creams stores, gluten-free bakery and both small and larger stores all within walking distance. Guadalajara is a vibrant, safe city with many things to see and do. Ubers and taxis are very inexpensive as are your dining options. Guadalajara is rarely ever under 70F during the day and usually in the 75-84F temperature. Rainy season is June through October but it almost always rains in the evening or at night and is dry and sunny the next morning. As we are at 5,000 feet elevation, the weather is ideal without getting too hot. Our neighborhood is very safe and our condo complex is small but secure as is our place. It's a wonderful base for exploring the city and surroundings.

Der Raum

Our condo is cozy but very livable. There is a wonderful flow between the living room, dining room and kitchen. The bedrooms are separated and the master has an on suite bathroom while the second has one right across from it. The space never gets cold enough for heat and we don't have heat. The windows have screens (although Guadalajara isn't really buggy, there are some mosquitos during rainy season (mid June through mid October) and we use those with the curtains to regulate the temperature easily. We have views of the city from two sides as we are on the second floor (which is really like the third floor). Guadalajara is a vibrant, busy city. We do have traffic noise on our street. Open the windows and you will hear it. We tend to close the windows at night and if we hear something, then our fans provide white noise. But this isn't a deathly quiet countryside accommodation. There won't be any wild bars going or anything like that.

Gastzugang

We are on the second floor and there is an elevator. There is also a ramp to get to the front door in addition to the stairs. The front of the complex is locked and gated so it provides safety and security. This is a small unit of condos; 14 total. Our place is all on one level, no stairs although there is a lip to get out to either of the balconies.

Anmerkungen

If you are an active traveler, Guadalajara offers up some good opportunities. If you've never been to Mexico, this is the second largest city in Mexico. It's also where most of the universities are and there are some very upscale areas, some historic areas, middle class areas and poorer areas. Things to see/do: 1. Centro Historico area. You can spend one or two days exploring this part of town. It will look very European; buildings from the 1600s with large walkable spaces and lots to see and do. Museums, art, statues, parks, restaurants, etc. 2. Chapultapec. This is a street that has a lot of activity going. There is a center walkway and lots of restaurants and shops out at the street level. 3. Tlaquepaque. This is a wonderful Mexican experience. There is a walking streets with lots of interesting sculptures along the way, tons of art and restaurants. 4. Tequila. The birthplace of tequila, this is a charming small town with a LOT of tequila distilleries around. This would make a good day trip tour. It's about 30 miles away. The village is worth exploring and every distillery has taste testing. 5. Guadalupe. Avenue Guadalupe is about a 5 minute walk from our place and lined with many restaurants of all types of cuisine. At the end of it is the Chapalita roundabout and there are art exhibits there on Sundays and just a nice place to walk to. 6. Parque de Colomos. Colomos park is quite large and has a myriad of walking paths (both paved and not). There is a Japanese Garden there and a lovely area in the trees with a lake. You can also do a horse ride in the park among their own trails. 7. Zoo and Aquarium. The Zoo is actually quite lovely and the animals are well kept. One of the better zoos I've been to (and usually not very crowded). They even have ski trolleys to take you through as well as electric carts or walking. The Aquarium is also quite large and nice. 8. Baranca de Heuntitan. There is a huge canyon about 40 minutes to the North from our place and there are hiking trails all the way to the bottom. It's a huge and amazing forested area. The trails are tough though as they descent around 2-3 thousand feet to the river and then you have to go back up. If you are really up for an adventure there is an old funicular track that people hike up (it's so steep you'll be using your hands to help). You can experience a piece of it and get back on the trail too as it switchbacks next to the funicular often. 9. Guachuimotones Pyramids. This is a small ancient pyramid site about 30 miles from us. These are some of the only round pyramids on the planet. They have a nice cultural center at the start of it. You could combine this with a visit to Tequila as they are both close by. And that's just a sampling of places. There are interesting street tanjis (street markets), odd churches, large parks, Mexican crafts in Tonola, etc.

Nachbarschaft

We are in a middle to upper-class neighborhood that has a lot of mature trees that make it very walkable. We live on an active street with a lot of restaurants and shops right out the door. You can get everything from street food Mexican (delicious and cheap) to nice wooden deck tea/coffee places to small intimate Italian restaurants, funky sushi or Greek food small places or more fancy choices. We have three distinct ice cream places less than 2 blocks away. There is a great donut shop two blocks away with nice open air seating. There is are two popular pancake/pastry places for breakfast a block away. It is quite safe to walk around here at night; we've done it often. People in Mexico are very friendly and you'll find many speak some amount of English too. You just don't need a car for anything other than site seeing and activities here.

Zu mir nach Hause kommen

We have a private driver that we can arrange to pick you up at the airport and take you right to our place. We use him for all of our travel trips to//from the airport. After that, it is very easy and inexpensive to take an Uber to where you want to go. A 20 minute right is between $3-5USD.

Nächstliegender Flughafen

The airport is located in the Southern part of the city and is a roughly a 30 minute drive to get there.

Rumkommen

You can walk for groceries, restaurants and anything you need right from the apartment. There is a fruit and meat store right across the street. A small OXXO on the corner (think 7-11), many restaurants, bakeries, etc. within 2 minutes walk. The larger grocery stores we have a wheeled cart and it is about 7-10 minutes each way and an enjoyable walk. Beyond this neighborhood, the easiest way is through Uber or Taxi (we have a small station with taxis about 4 blocks down the road). You can be adventurous and take the buses; they are extremely cheap and easy to use but they can be packed at certain times of the day so beware. Uber and taxi costs are very low compared with most of the world I've been in. But most places you get to are very walkable. There are lots of sidewalks, open spaces for walking, etc.

If we are in town, we can certainly meet, offer up itinerary help/advice for the local area. I have literally bicycyled every single road in Guadalajara (a pet 3-year project) so I know the entire city well.

Mitgliederbeschreibung
We are Ed and Jeanne. We retired early from the USA and lived in Southern Spain for four years before moving to Guadalajara, Mexico several years ago. We are non-smoking travel lovers that have been enjoying our city and places we love to explore. We also are dog lovers without a dog so we have done a lot of dog and house sitting for friends and others over the years. We did a number of house exchanges when we were in Europe. We have met so many lovely people around the world and stay in touch with a lot of them still.
