LOCAL ESSENTIALS

LOCAL
RECOMMENDATIONS

THE PERFECT DAY

MORNING

If this is your first visit tu Guadalajara, take the double-decker Tapatio tour bus, it stops right outside the hotel. The bus will take you downtown to the Cathedral and the old city centre. The best time to visit this part of town is in the morning while it is still fresh and not too crowded. Get off and walk around taking pictures, three of the best museums are here. While you are walking around the Plaza Tapatia try the local nieves (sorbets), I suggest the vanilla. Once you have seen all that you want to and have taken photos of the incredibly beautiful architecture, hop back on the tour bus and return to the hotel to prepare for an afternoon of adventure. Around the hote find banks, pharmacies, bookstores, restaurants, cinemas, theaters, bars and all the facilities that a traveler needs. At the hotel we offer you special tour to Tequila Ville, where you will learn the manufacturing process of tequila among the agave fields

AFTERNOON

Stroll along the cobblestone streets in the nearby town of Tlaquepaque. This quaint town is a must-see, the place for open-air markets (tianguis) and great little shops with inexpensive, good-quality Mexican crafts and souvenirs. Sip the best margarita around at El Adobe, sitting in a lovely art-gallery atmosphere where you are served by the renowned chef and owner, Margarita Pulido.

EVENING

Guadalajara City comes alive at night on Avenida Lopez Cotilla (a few blocks down from The Minerva) where you will find clusters of outdoor cafes, dimly lit bars and tiny terraces where you can sit back, sip a drink and enjoy the evening air. Then visit a famous Cuban restaurant for dinner.

INSIDER TIPS

LOCAL CULTURE

Before each service

The easiest way to call home is to use the phone in your room. If you are budget-conscious, long-distance phone cards are available in many corner stores....


Clothing

When walking around the city it is recommended that women wear walking shorts or knee-length or longer skirts, especially downtown.


Taxis

When you stay at the hotel, it is recommended that you use one of our taxis. If you are out in the city, always ask the driver if he has a taximeter, to avoid being overcharged. You can also agree on a fixed rate but do that before you get into the cab.


Water and Ice Cubes

It is best to drink bottled water. You will be okay to brush your teeth with tap water but avoid swallowing large amounts. In restaurants, ice cubes are typically made with purified water. If you are unsure, simply ask the waiter.


DID YOU KNOW ?

Ginger House

Every Christmas, the hotel displays a big Ginger House decorated with chocolates and sweets. Miniatures of the house are sold as souvenirs in the hotel lobby.


Guadalajara

Guadalajara is known as 'the city of roses' in honour of the hundreds of rose gardens which used to adorn the city parks.


Home of traditions

Guadalajara is Mexico's second-largest city and is considered to be the cradle of all Mexican traditions such as 'tequila', 'mariachi' and our national sport, 'charreria'.


Las Chivas soccer team

The city has three soccer teams, among them the world-famous Chivas. Fans are very competitive and the city comes alive when there's a match on.


Mariachi Festival

In September, Guadalajara is filled with the sounds and excitement of the major musical event of the year, the International Mariachi and Charreria Festival. Many of the participants come from places such as Aruba, Venezuela, the United States, Colombia and as far away as Spain.


WHAT TO PACK

Camera

A camera is a must! There will be many opportunities around the city to take great pictures. In front of the hotel at Plaza del Sol (crossing the street) you can find all issues if you forgot your camera.


Comfortable shoes

Guadalajara's city centre and surrounding towns are best seen on foot, so bring along comfortable shoes and enjoy the diversity of the area.


Personal items and prescriptions

Bring enough prescription drugs, special lotions and personal items to last throughout your visit.


Spanish phrase book

Although the hotel staff speak excellent English, when you are out, useful phrases will come in handy as most locals have limited English.


Sunscreen and hat

As the sun is almost always shining in Guadalajara, keep yourself well protected, especially in the middle of summer.
