These photos are a couple of years old, but we don't get a lot of Mexico threads on SSP so I figured I'd post them.
Most of the photos were taken in the historic central part of Guadalajara.
Another shot of the cathedral. The Teatro Degollado is on the right:
Plaza de Armas and the Palacio de Gobierno of Jalisco
Some people staring at a sleeping homeless guy on a bench
Hospicio Cabañas. This building is over 200 years old. It was one of the first major hospital complexes in the New World and is a world heritage site.
Guadalajara's old historic centre is pretty busy and has a substantial network of pedestrian-only streets that seem to be pretty successful.
The region around Guadalajara is hilly, dry, and full of agave fields.
By this point it was getting pretty late in the day. Next time I'll take an earlier bus so I can at least careen around narrow mountain passes in daylight.
This is the small town of La Peñita, on the Nayarit coast. There are lots of nice small towns in Mexico that do not yet have Wal-Marts.
A bit farther south is Puerto Vallarta. There's a lot more to it than this, but the buildings built into these hills are interesting.
Los Arcos islands off the coast of Puerto Vallarta, on the way to Quimixto.
