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.
Built out of quarried stone (even the streets and sidewalks), Zacatecas is an amazing Mexican city with few tourists. With a population of 300,000 people it boasts of impressive art galleries and museums. It is one of the most beautiful colonial cities I've ever seen. Its history dates back to the time of Cortez when it was a hotbed for silver mining with 20% of the silver mined here.
