Itinery Questions

Hi,

We are looking at flying into Guadalajara and then taking the bus to PV.

We have 6 nights we can work with.

Besides Guadalajara I would like to see Tequila and also Tlaquepaque

what would be the best way to organize the trip?

There's a tequila train that will take you to Tequila. Be advised it's pretty lively and livelier retuning. That'll eat a day. Tlaquepaque is a cab ride away from Guadalajara, in fact, it's part of Metropolitan Guadalajara.

Guadalajara is a large city with lots of offerings in terms of culture, nightlife, the outlying cities etc. What are your interests -- a recent group of visitors with me we did an exceptional tour of the Guachimontones site, you also need to research the in-town museums and sites. Hospicio Cabañas with the Mercade San Juan de Dios takes an entire day, see the orchestra at the Teatro Degollado. Go to contemporary Guadalajara and dine, there is great Korean at SSam.

Even though Tequila is located along the highway to Puerto Vallarta, you'll almost certainly have to backtrack to Guadalajara to catch a luxury bus that will take you to Puerto Vallarta. So, going to Tequila would be a separate sidetrip, rather than an intermediate stopover point on your way to PV. Fortunately, Tequila isn't that far away from Guadalajara.

I've been to Tequila a few times, but have never done a Tequila distillery tour. I know that these tours are offered with different time durations. The shortest tour might be an hour-long visit of the factory. The longer tours might take hours and include a ride out to the agave fields. You can choose which tour you want, based on your interest level.

Panch04,

Thanks for reminding me about the Guachimontones site. I've been wanting to visit there for some time, but haven't gotten around to it yet.
