One of the best restaurants in town. A place to take someone to impress them. But prices are VERY reasonable. Try the Molcajetes! Historic building built in 1690 formerly the convent of the discalced carmelites. Quiet piano music, a fountain and birds; wonderfully rich food and drinks

I love these historic old buildings that are now clubs. Crowd here is 20's and 30's mostly but friendly. Mix of English and Spanish pop music with some cumbia, rap, r&b and house tech. Gay club but then the best dance clubs are. Main floor and an upstairs. Drinks are cheap and people are friendly

Sightseeing
Great place just to spend the day. You can see the Cathedral, vast market, theater. Several restaurants (even a Starbucks if you are missing your caffeine). Often times there are cultural events on the stage, or craft fairs. At night the major historical buildings are all beautifully illuminated. Area is clean and safe

Built in the 16th and 17th centuries it houses the relics of St. Innocent and is probably one of the most photographed buildings in the city with neoclassical, boroque and gothic archetecture. It is huge and houses many exhibitions but please be respectful it is a local sanctuary. Insider Tip: Don't forget to visit the crypts, they are all the way to the end on the side hallway and down some stairs

Historic Church with Italian Mosaics, stained glass and a beautiful clock tower. One of the most beautiful churches in Mexico. Listen to the chimes every hour. Saturday evenings (around 7pm) there is a market with really wonderful Vegan Food as well as handcrafts. Great Tamales and Tacos as well

The Rotunda is an iconic monument with 17 columns honoring figures who have made a substantial contribution to the development of the State of Jalisco.

Beautiful Cemetery and very historic. The night time tour is wonderful. It takes about an hour and you buy your ticket at the little window by the main gate. No flash photography so if you want pictures take one of the day tours. You can also see the architecture better during the day. But I love the atmosphere at night. Your choice. Tickets are inexpensive. Usually the tour is in Spanish

Parks & Nature
Beautiful large park with it's own small lake right in the middle of the city. Comfortable bike ride for a picnic. Butterfly garden and the aviary are beautiful. Busier on the weekend so if you can visit during the week you can enjoy it by yourself. Tranquil and peaceful - another side of this vibrant city
