Guadalajara Mexico

Guadalajara The City of Roses and Fountains

GuadalajaraGuadalajara is known as the City of Roses (roses bloom 365 days a year) and City of Fountains. Guadalajara is a wonderful mix of old world charm (ancient architecture hundreds of years old) and modern design and is home to a wide variety of culture, incredible art galleries, museums and cathedrals.

The Teatro Degollado, built in the 1500’s, a famous landmark building in downtown Centro Guadalajara, is the home to spectacular entertainment – The 3 Tenors have performed there as have the famous Ballet Folkorico and many other world famous entertainers. The inside is simply breathtaking!

In recent years many high tech companies from Canada and the U S have moved in, enhancing the city’s reputation known as “Mexico’s Silicon Valley

There are over 80 modern shopping centers in Guadalajara, the second largest city in Mexico with a metropolitan population of around five million people. You’ll find many back home names like Sears, Liverpool, Wal-Mart, Price Club, Office Depot, and now many more franchises coming in. We even have a McDonald’s, Domino’s pizza, Applebee’s and Starbucks. Since signing the NAFTA agreement, each year more and more businesses are moving into Mexico.
