Jalisco: tequila and mariachi country

On a night out in Guadalajara, you can expect 2 things to happen. One, you can party the night away whichever club you choose to go and still get to your Jalisco vacation rental in one piece come morning. Two, your drinks will inevitably include tequila shots. Since you're in Jalisco country, though your choice for evening entertainment is endless, it's always a good idea to drop by a place with an authentic mariachi band. You can't expect Antonio Banderas to strut across the stage Desperado-style, but you may come across something just as good.

Looking for the center of the Mexican universe? Try Jalisco

Jalisco's motto says it all: "Jalisco is Mexico." Everything you know about Mexico comes from Jalisco. If you want to experience Mexico at its most traditional and authentic, Jalisco is where you should go. You can tour the distilleries of Tequila Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or dance with the locals to folk tunes played by Guadalajara's mariachi bands. You can watch a Mexican rodeo, explore the Spanish colonial architecture, or gorge on fabulous food. And then, there's Punta Vallarta, where you can chill out at the beach or embark on an eco-adventure.

Punta Vallarta is spring break and expat heaven

Jalisco's vacation crowd often end up spending most of their time at Punta Vallarta, a coastal city facing the Pacific Ocean. Punta Vallarta is particularly popular among American students on spring break, though it's also become a haven for North American expats. If you're into diving, or extreme sports like parasailing or bungee jumping, Punta Vallarte has you covered. If you want to unleash your inner beach bum, hanging out at the beach and partying hard at night, you can find beachfront Jalisco vacation rentals that will let you do just that.

Don't forget to bring your umbrella

The climate varies between different regions in Jalisco, but 1 thing is certain – sudden downpours of rain can seriously dampen your summer vacation if you're not prepared for them. Jalisco gets most of its rainfall in summer, between June and September. Coincidentally, these months are also the most humid in the region. The chance of rain doesn't stop Jalisco's visitors from having fun, though, so if you're visiting in summer, better book your Jalisco vacation rentals way ahead so you won't run out of choices on where to stay. And come prepared with an umbrella.

From snowcapped peaks to arid plains

Jalisco lies in central Mexico, in an area transitioning from northern temperate to southern tropical. So, there are parts of Jalisco where snowcapped peaks dominate the terrain, and there are parts where it's flat and arid everywhere you lay your eyes on. The variety in Jalisco's landscape has also contributed much to its biodiversity. In the temperate areas, you can find forests of pine and oak occupied by small mammals and the occasional mountain lion. The coastal areas have palm trees, monkeys, and caimans, while the arid lands have agave, wolves, and coyotes.
