About The Owner
My husband and I of 30+ years of married life grew up in San Francisco and currently live in the Bay Area. We love to travel, listening to music, going to the ballet, great food and wine, art, and simply just chilling at home with our two very spoiled (but beloved) cats.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2010
Why The Owner chose Guadalajara
We have always dreamed of owning a property in Mexico and be close to family and friends. We love this area for its history and vibrant charm. The people here are warm and eager to share the essence of the Guadalajara area. We hope you enjoy our Casa Delacroix! Mi casa es tu casa!
What makes this apartment unique
The location is great ... centralized and overall quiet. Discover Zapopan, Guadalajara, Tlaquepaque, Tonala, Lake Chapala, Ajijic, and Tequila. Zapopan is both a large municipal region comprising much of the western edge of metropolitan Guadalajara and the small old town center of Zapopan (northwest of the Minerva-Chapultepec area).
In Zapopan there are very nice neighborhoods, night clubs, upscale restaurants, three private universities (Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara, Tec de Monterrey and Universidad del Valle de Atemajac - UNIVA), several parks (Parque Metropolitano, Los Colomos, The Country Club) and a forest (La Primavera). Enjoy the arts and crafts fairs offered on the weekends in close by Chapalita and Chapultepec.
The Basilica of Our Lady of Zapopan makes the city a pilgrimage point as well as a tourist spot in old town Zapopan. You can visit the Mercado del Mar (Sea Market) where you can eat fish and seafood for a reasonable price. Downtown old Zapopan offers the basilica, Huichol Museum, Art Museum of Zapopan, City Hall and the market (across the plaza and beside City Hall.)
