If you really want to make the best of your shopping adventure in Guadalajara, I'd like to suggest that you start your day early. 

Please remember, that if you go during the months of April to August it can get very hot! At least when it isn't raining. The rainy season is from May to August. Read more about Guadalajara weather and how to fully prepare for your trip.

I recommend taking a siesta during the hot hours (11am to 4pm) or at least stay in a nice cool place so you won't overheat. 

If you do decide to go when it's hot, just be sure to seek out shady spots to cool you down. It's very strange but all you need is a few moments in the shade and you really feel the difference in the temperature. 

Find some great Guadalajara hotels to spend your holiday and wind down from your busy day. 

You might want to follow these tips.. at least until you get adjusted to the climate. 

If you are feeling more adventurous and think you're up for the sun, please be sure to read up on some tips to stay sunburn free and cool.

Okay, now that we have that written... back to shopping! 


Tlaquepaque is just as they say, "A town with magic," and considered "the capital of crafts in Mexico." If you are on the hunt for some beautiful Mexican folk art then this needs to be on the top of your list.
