First Solo Trip To Guadalajara, Mexico

Hello everyone! I will be taking my first solo trip and it will be to the beautiful Guadalajara Jalisco, MX. I was going to go the week of my Birthday (Dec 26-31st) But tickets were just way too expensive and out of my budget. So now I will be going from Jan 23-28th; exactly a month after my Birthday *tears* But at least I'm starting the new year right.The questions I have for you all are:

1) What are some recommendations on activities, are there any holidays during Jan to where I can celebrate, and must try food places/dishes, etc.

2) I am a huge fashion and jewelry fanatic, do you know of any nice handcrafted jewelry stores and places to shop as a curvy girl from the US?

3)Any tips to provide me as a female solo traveler from the US?

4) I welcome other solo female travelers to come along, would you join me?

Hi Bridget, January is a slow month but there are a wide realm of great activities in Guadalajara and also lots of international people you can meet.

There are lots of jewelry makers and vendors. If you read back on the forum many of people sell around Plaza del Expiatorio on Saturday and Sunday nights. Fashion and size-wise best to consult personally and to have a budget line in mind. I highly reco Leda Isabel Garcia as a fashion week NYC and MX person but who is also sensitive to budget needs.. MX fashionstas do not consider budget.
