Guadalajara embodies the very soul of Mexico. It is the founding region of mariachi music, and enjoys proximity and ties to everything that is wonderful about Mexico. Using Guadalajara as your home base, it is a short jaunt to Puerto Vallarta, a two hour highway ride to the breathtaking central plateau and mountain region, and within a 5 hour luxury motor coach ride to Mexico City. Once you get to Guadalajara though, you may not want to leave. Finding the perfect hotel in the city is key to enjoying all that Guadalajara and central Mexico has to offer.

Begin your search online, as people do nowadays, (you're here aren't you?) but don't rely solely on the internet. Mexico hasn't quite uploaded to the extent of the United States, so you may miss some real great deals if you rely only on a website. Although the main hotel booking sites have several options in Guadalajara, don't rely solely on them- use them only after you have an area or accommodation in mind.

Another option is to contact Guadalajara's Tourist Office. The city has made a real push as of late to cater to tourists, and has recently added or upgraded many services. In addition, Mexico's culture is dedicated to hospitality. This value is highly reflected in the tourist office, where you will be treated (in English!) as more than just another visitor. Your hotel needs will be met in a very welcoming manner.

Of course, those traveling for business or on behalf of their company should ask business colleagues in Guadalajara for recommendations. No one knows the area like a tapatía (a resident of Guadalajara).

Next, try the airport. Miguel Hidalgo International Airport in Guadalajara offers the services of multiple travel agencies and also has representatives from large hotel chains stationed in the main corridor. (Not to mention a Starbucks up on the second level, which, if you are like me, you will be running to upon your departure...this is was the only brewed gourmet place I saw in all of central Mexico!)

Remember how the realtors choose: location, location, location. Those visiting Guadalajara solely as tourist will want to focus their hotel hunt exclusively on the plaza areas. However, those using Guadalajara as a base of operation for day trips will want to stay at a hotel near bus and train hubs.

By enlisting the help of others, you really can't go wrong in this city of soul. Enjoy!
