If someone moves to Guadalajara you should consider that there is plenty of transportation to get anywhere. You can find all the good restaurants located downtown and if you are looking to have some fun there are some very nice places where you can find mariachi. Guadalajara culture is beautiful and people are very friendly.

Guadalajara is an amazing city as the people are warm and welcoming and the culture is rich and diverse, oh, let’s not forget about the mouthwatering food! There is never a dull moment here as there is a lot of things to do and see, from viewing breathtaking cathedrals to hiking in some its luscious mountains. The weather is perfectly sunny almost all year round, so there’s no excuse not to go to the beach! Also, the unforgettable music from the Banda and Mariachi bands will make you dance the night away.
