Top things to do in Jalisco

Jalisco

Learn about mariachi, charreadas and jaripeos to understand the meaning of the phrase, “Jalisco is Mexico.”

Mountains, valleys and beaches make up the varied and picturesque terrain of Jalisco. The state’s scenic bays and cliffs overlook the Pacific Coast, while its cities introduce you to the fascinating culture and history of Mexico. Get a sense of local traditions as you taste some tequila, listen to ranchera and mariachi music and watch  chasreadas and jaripeos, which are types of rodeo.

Visit the large state capital of Guadalajara for its many charming plazas, parks and museums. Explore the imposing Catedral Metropolitana and see its twin spires illuminated at night. Among the highlights are the Monumento a los Niños Heroes, the Museo de Arqueologia de Occidente de Mexico and the Zoologico Guadalajara.

In the southern outskirts of the city is Chapala, where you will find the vast Chapala Lake. Rent a boat to take out on the water. Spend some time in the intriguing Jesus Gonzalez Gallo Cultural Center and admire its majestic façade. Head northwest to the quaint, iconic town of Tequila, considered the birthplace of its namesake beverage. Take tours of its distilleries.

Among Jalisco’s main draws is the stunning Costa Alegre on the western coast. Enjoy the vibrant nightlife in Puerto Vallarta and wander through the Puerto Vallarta Botanical Gardens. Enjoy the hot, sunny summers with a trip to Playa Punta de Mita, Playa Gemelas and Camarones Beach among others.

Travel south to the jungle area of El Tuito and reach the beach-laden areas of La Manzanilla and Barra de Navidad, where you can relax on Barra de Navidad Beach.

Jalisco lies just south of Nayarit on the Pacific Coast in the southwestern part of Mexico. The climate varies throughout this large state, with the warmest weather on the coast and the wettest periods from June to October. Get around the region with the regular bus system that runs daily and cover the cities in inexpensive taxis. When you visit Jalisco, take the chance to practice your Spanish but note that locals also speak some English.
