So many incredible buildings around this big plaza. Lots to explore but plenty of areas to just relax and watch the world go by. Gotta love the plazas in Mexico!!

It's a must see when you visit Guadalajara, it connects everything. You're likely to encounter a bunch of vendors and a lot of people. Its great for families. It needs more trash cans, shade and cleaner seats, but it's ok I guess.

One of my favorite places in Guadalajara. I could see here watch the people all day (if it was not the heat lol). There is the Guadalajara sign there as well which was a very popular spot for photos.
