    Guadalajara – Mexico at its most mesmerizing

    Many of Mexico's most iconic cultural symbols – mariachi music, sombreros and tequila to name just a few – have their roots in Guadalajara and the surrounding state of Jalisco. Its well-preserved historic center makes a dramatic first impression, with its ostentatious 16th-century cathedral, winding cobblestone streets and picturesque plazas. But this is by no means a city stuck in the past, as you'll also find innovative fusion restaurants, a cosmopolitan cultural scene and a buzzing nightlife. Guadalajara vacation rentals range from elegant loft apartments to spacious family houses, so you're bound to find one that ticks all the right boxes.

    Shop ‘til you drop or dine like royalty in Guadalajara

    Guadalajara is a veritable mecca for shopaholics. You could lose days exploring the city's cavernous indoor markets, where you can buy custom-made leather shoes, colorful ceramics, hand-woven baskets and jewelry, all at highly competitive prices, particularly if you're willing to haggle. The city's dining scene is similarly scintillating. You could start by sampling local dishes like Birria, a rich stew traditionally made with goat or mutton, or torta ahogada, a moreish meat sandwich submerged in an addictively spicy sauce. You'll also find gourmet restaurants serving everything from freshly caught seafood to fiery Indian curries.

    Architecture and animal encounters in Guadalajara

    Whichever district of the city you choose to base yourself in, you'll find a wealth of enthralling attractions on the doorstep of your Guadalajara vacation rental. Set aside a little time to marvel at the magnificence of Guadalajara Cathedral. Initially completed in 1618, and partially reconstructed in the 19th century, it blends ornate Spanish Renaissance and imposing Gothic Revival stylings to breathtaking effect. Head inside and you'll find ancient sacred relics, silver and marble altars and exquisite French stained glass windows. For a fun-packed family day out, take the gang to Guadalajara Zoo. Here, you'll encounter everything from exceedingly rare white lions to Komodo dragons.

    Sizzling sunshine in Guadalajara

    Guadalajara's near-tropical climate ensures year-round warmth and plenty of sunshine. While it's a buzzing destination at all times of year, Guadalajara vacation rentals are in particularly high demand between October and December, when rainfall is low, evenings are pleasantly mild and the city's festivals and events calendar is jam-packed. Visit between January and May and you'll enjoy slightly thinner crowds, but be warned that it can get chilly once the sun goes down. The summer months of June to September can be rainy and humid, but you may be able to score a great deal on accommodation.

    Cavernous canyons and winding rivers in Guadalajara

    Should you feel like escaping the hustle and bustle of city life, you'll find a wealth of unspoiled nature within easy reach of Guadalajara. Just over an hour by car from the city center, Barranca de Oblatos is a jaw-dropping canyon carved by the mighty Rio Grande de Santiago, one of Mexico's longest rivers. With an average depth of 600 meters, this natural wonder is an idyllic spot for a leisurely weekend hike or riverside picnic.
