You can sit in the plaza and drink in the beauty of the city or you can walk around easily and people watch. Horse pulled carriages add to the colonial splendor of this central square and its surrounding attractions. Pigeons at your feet add to...More

This is typically impressive Mexican plaza. Two gorgeous fountains sit between the Degollado Theatre and the back of the Cathedral. There are lots of benches if you want to rest your feet but you might have to be patient since the plaza seems to be...More

It's a must see when you visit Guadalajara, it connects everything. You're likely to encounter a bunch of vendors and a lot of people. Its great for families. It needs more trash cans, shade and cleaner seats, but it's ok I guess.

One of my favorite places in Guadalajara. I could see here watch the people all day (if it was not the heat lol). There is the Guadalajara sign there as well which was a very popular spot for photos.

What excellent urban planning. Perfect place for people watching while admiring the cathedral on one end, the opera house on the other, and beautiful Spanish colonial buildings on both sides.
