Trip Mexico - advice


I will be going to Mexico in mid November for a wedding. The wedding takes place in Guadalajara, so I will be there for a couple of days. But since I'll be coming all the way from Europe, I would like to travel around the country a bit and see some things. I already plan to spend some days in the sun - in Cabo or Cancun. Do you have any advice on where else to go to? Thanks!

You don't indicate how much time you have allocated for your trip. In Guadalajara, one can easily spend 8 to 10 hours per day seeing the sights or shopping in Tlaquepaque or Tonala. Beyond that, Central Mexico has a great deal to offer in the many colonial cities - Guanajuato, Morelia, Puebla, Oaxaca, etc. It all depends on your interests.

If you are planniing on a few days in the sun, you may want to consider Puerto Vallarta as well. It is much closer to Guadalajara, and in my opinion a much more interesting place than either Cancun or Cabo. There is also much more to see, and do, it'ss a foodies paradise with a ton of wonderful restaurants, and it is a great walking town. It has a much more authentic Mexican feel than either Cabo or Cancun, even with it being a popular tourist destination. It is a working Mexican city where as Cabo and Cancun are much more built specifically for tourists where you rarely venture into the same areas the locals reside, eat, and work. The lanscape is also much more interesting, and beautiful with the Sierra Madre mountains all around.

Just some food for thought. Hope you have a fantastic trip.
