There are a lot of things in Guadalajara, the second largest town of Mexico that makes it an interesting place to spend time in. It has the biggest market in Latin America – San Juan de Dios with three floors. I have met the nicest Mexican women here. It is one of the most traditional, religious and conservative cities in Mexico. It is not a colonial city like Guanajuato or San Miguel de Allende, but with many avenues, the best modern infrastructure possible. An interesting fact about Guadalaraja -at night, usually at 11pm, people gather on bicycles and take a different route every night around the city, go to the movies or theatre together. It is a fun city with lots of good things and good people.
No other place is better for surfing than Sayulita. The popularity of this town is growing steadily due to the surfing scene. There are other water sports to be enjoyed, along with a relaxed fishing tour. There are schools here that provide surfing lessons for beginners at reasonable rates.
About Barra de Navidad
Barra de Navidad is situated on a long peninsula that forms a natural breakwater. On the side facing the ocean, the shoreline is pretty steep, causing some fairly large waves, and makes this area a good spot for surfers. Youhave to take the lagoon cruise here. The beginning of a tour into the lagoon is at around 7:00am. If you go on this tour, it costs about 200 pesos. Make sure you bring a warm jacket because it gets quite cold on the water (I wore my heavy fleece jacket – I really needed it that morning.
