Under $100 / North America

Guadalajara is more than just the birthplace of mariachi music and tequila – it’s also home to a stunning display of historic colonial buildings mixed with a vibrant urban atmosphere. It should come as no surprise a city with more than 4 million residents has plenty of things to keep you busy for a day.


Begin with breakfast at Café P’al Real. Its red chorizo chilaquiles are the best in town and will only cost you $5. Next, make your way over to Tlaquepaque, a pedestrian area teeming with boutique shops and art galleries. You don’t have to spend money to poke around, but you might want to set aside $20 for souvenirs.


Seek out the city center and visit the Instituto Cultural Cabañas, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage building famed for its mural paintings. Entrance is free. The building is located just a stone’s throw away from Mercado San Juan de Dios, one of the largest in Latin America.


For lunch, head to Tacos de Barbacoa Arturo for deep-fried tacos served with slow-cooked meats. A bite here will cost $5.


Spend the afternoon lazily strolling through Plaza Tapatía. The city’s first square, it contains numerous buildings of historic and cultural importance to explore. There’s the Government Palace, Teatro Degollado and the Catedral de Guadalajara to get you started.


Finally, finish off with a scrumptious meal at Allum, easily the most popular restaurant in town. A meal here will run you $30.
