    It is an interesting and interactive aquarium; I have seen countless marine and terrestrial species such as sharks, jellyfish, otters, farm animals, birds and much more. It has fun play areas and areas for eating and lounging.
    What I enjoyed most was the ability to feed fish, birds, goats and rays.

    The best zoo I have visited. Buy the total ticket and do it all. The safari is incredible and so is the tram. I have never been closer to animals that were more lively. Simply a wonderful day. The Bengal tigers and hippos were exceptionally impressive.

    The use of movement in the mural paintings by Oresco is fascinating and suggest a guide explain this to you. It is worth spending a half hour to 45 minutes in this place.

    So pretty and just outright huge. Soaring vaulted ceiling with some incredible stain glass windows on ceiling and walls leading to top. This is a must see in Guadalajara. Highly recommend this.

    Beautiful space, lots of water features, big trees and paths. Nice cafe inside. The japanese garden was particularly nice. About 10 degrees cooler in there too.

    Great service and value! We went for the elite tour and it was well worth the money. They had an English tour to accommodate those who didn’t speak Spanish. They let us know all about the harvest process and Jose Cuervo history. They give you an hour time to eat lunch and go shopping in the markets with access to exclusive tequila. The train ride for sunset is better in my opinion because then you’re not having your all you can drink at 9 am! Leo was an incredible tour guide, very friendly and fun. JJ on the bus was the best, was very lively and took great care of us. Highly recommend!

  • Guadalajara is a very beautiful city in Mexico. It is known for tequila and mariachi music, both born in Jalisco, the state of which Guadalajara is the capital. Guadalajara's historic center has colonial plazas and landmarks like the neoclassical Teatro Degollado and a cathedral with twin golden spiers. The Government Palace houses famous murals by the painter José Clemente Orozco, among many more traditions such as the charreria, that is why I really liked going to Guadalajara.

    Great vibe, food, and culture of Guadalajara! The plaza cathedrals were also beautiful. Typical Mexico vendors and shops, but always fun to see!

    The experience in this place was very pleasant since I attended the opening of this stadium between Manchester United and Guadalajara teams at that time this stadium was the best in Mexican football. It is a stadium very similar to the European stadiums. The access is very fast as well as the exit and the evacuation routes, the attention in the food is very good however what is a bit more complicated to acquire is the beer since this is on tap and at the time of buying it you had that make a few very large rows since most of the people who attend here their favorite drink is beer and that is why the great demand and the difficulty to acquire a glass of beer.

    I would make this a stop in your adventures in Guadalajara. Short uber ride from the central plaza. Its not expensive, however please pay the extra fee that they charge to take pictures. It's worth every penny.

    Learn about the legends of the city. The Vampire, Nachito and the architect that built the cemetery. Each one has a great story. The tour guide was knowledgeable and approachable. We took the last tour of the day which is at 3pm. Get there on time.

    Enjoy
