Under $100 / North America

Many tourists overlook Mexico’s second city, but it’s a fascinating place. Here’s how you can see the best of Guadalajara in one day.

Get a good breakfast in at Los Mitotes de Maria in Tlaquepaque, with traditional dishes like chilaquiles on the menu alongside a coffee and cinnamon mixture known as café de olla ($6). Take a stroll around the Tlaquepaque market, and stop in at some of the boutiques that line the colonial streets.

Afterwards go to the Instituto Cultural Cabanas (entrance $3.50) in the center of the city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that houses mural paintings by Orozco among other great works. Have lunch in the traditional surroundings of San Pascual Bailon, and top it off with a traditional Guadalajara flan known as jericalla ($8).

Visit Guadalajara Cathedral and the Basilica de Zapopan before heading back to your hostel to freshen up. Afterwards, head out for sunset beers on the terrace at Cerveceria Chapultepec (beers $1), stop in at El Parian to see the mariachis (beers $1.50; song $2.50) and then grab some tacos at Tacos Ocampo ($4).

If you want to dance, grab a taxi ($4) to Pare de Sufrir, a mezcaleria where DJs spin to the early hours.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
