There's tours and guides, but be sure to get there early as the tours stop relatively early in the evening/afternoon. I enjoyed the live entertainment the best.

Centro Historico in Guadalajara is wonderful. So much to see and to do. Beautiful architecture and arts and sculptures. So nice to sit and people watch and take in the culture.

Want the most iconic pictures of Guadalajara? This is the place. You have on one side the Guadalajara cathedral and the Degollado theater on the other surrounded by other beautiful buildings.
