Colorful Guadalajara, Mexico – Once Upon a Journey

Mexico - Once Upon a Journey

Hello Mexico! After a three hour flight from Los Angeles, we arrive in Guadalajara: Mexico’s second biggest city. We are super excited to be in Mexico, but also a bit concerned. So many people told us Mexico isn’t safe… But luckily we are two tall girls who already have quite some travel experience and aren’t stupid. Let the Mexico adventures begin!

It’s my first time in Mexico, Maartje’s second time. Not sure if Maartje’s first time counts since she went to Cancun for Spring Break. Not really an authentic part of Mexico, but this time we will see authentic Mexico for sure. We never heard of Guadalajara before, but that’s something we like about a place! That means not so many other tourists go there, or well, let’s see ourselves.

The first nights in Guadalajara we stay with Marco and his dad. We are welcomed with open arms and with lots of Tequila and Corona. I don’t hope this much alcohol is a normal thing in Mexico, wow. With five people we drink three bottles of Tequila in one night. The hangovers are big, but we have lots of fun. And we break our first Pinata ever!! The only thing we see during the first days in Guadalajara is Tlaquepaque, and we LOVE it! It’s so beautiful and colourfull. There are coloured umbrellas and flags in the streets; Maartje is the happiest girl ever. She was already looking for a place with umbrellas like that for a while.

The Real Mexico in Guadalajara – Globetrotter Girls

Author: , March 9th, 2017

Guadalajara

Guadalajara was never on my travel wish list for Mexico, I admit it. The blank spots I’ve been wanting to fill on my Mexico map are places like San Miguel Allende, Guanajuato, Copper Canyon and the beaches on the West Coast – Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita, and San Pancho, all of which I’ve been wanting to visit since reading about them on a bunch of travel blogs a few years ago, when several bloggers based themselves there for their winter escape.

And that’s exactly how I ended up in Guadalajara: Its proximity to said beaches. I was looking for a place to fly to that had easy access to the coast, and which seemed worth exploring. Guadalajara sounded interesting enough: the cultural capital of Latin America in 2005, a university town, a city with art museums and a historic city center, and a city with several Jose Clemente Orozco murals, one of the famous Mexican muralists whose art I adore. What more could I ask for? A great flight deal ($109 from LA, booked only three days in advance) sealed the deal.

My instinct had once again brought me to the right place. From my very first stroll through the historic center, I was much reminded of Mexico City – and you all know how much I love Mexico’s capital.

San Pancho Surfers – Globetrotter Girls

Guadalajara surfers - Globetrotter Girls

The last few days in Guadalajara were rainy, grey and cold. I had planned to stay there longer, but the weather made me change my plans. Instead of spending more time inland, I’d head straight to the coast. My first stop would be Sayulita, a small surfer town on the Pacific, and then I would visit San Pancho, a few miles further north, even smaller than the already tiny Sayulita, but a few of my friends had spent a winter there a few years back and loved it.

I couldn’t have made a better decision than traveling to the coast. I started my journey on a rainy morning in Guadalajara (it was pouring down the second day in a row) and a couple of hours into the bus ride, the rain stopped and the scenery began to look a lot more tropical. Four hours after hopping on that bus, I was let out on the side of the road right next to a guy selling coconuts fresh off a palm tree. The air felt sticky and hot. This was the climate I felt right at home in.

Guadalajara - Globetrotter Girls

When it rains, it pours, they say, and that couldn’t hold truer for the past couple of weeks. And I don’t only mean that because it is pouring as I type this – I haven’t seen that much rain since leaving Seattle, but Guadalajara got so much rain today that the streets were flooding – but, as so many of us, I’ve been struggling with the events of this week. That combined with a string of bad news since the beginning of the month has put me in a slump which I’m trying to get out of.

Coming to Mexico was certainly a good decision and is helping me getting my mojo back: As soon as I walked out of the terminal building last week and saw the familiar OXXO convenience store across the street, I felt like I was coming home. And there aren’t many places that make me feel this way. The familiarity of Mexico has also helped me ease into solo travel again, which I haven’t done in a while now, and the weather has been perfect for most of the week – after my depressingly wet and cold October this was much needed.

Guadalajara, which I picked as the starting point for my current Mexico trip, was an excellent choice. I’d never been to Mexico’s second largest city, and it was time to fix that.

Mexico’s Gay Travel Hot-Spots

Author: , January 8th, 2014

Mexico ResortMachismo is a way of life for many Mexican males, and because of this inherent homophobia passed on through generations, Mexico was slow to create LGBT communities — making it a less than desirable destination for gay travelers. Things have come a long way in this beautiful country, and individual cities and states are opening their arms to the gay community.

In March 2010, Mexico City approved same-sex marriage, and in 2013, Mexico’s Supreme Court ruled that a ban on same-sex marriage in Oaxaca was unconstitutional. These incredible advancements for gays in Mexico have cleared a path for more cities and states to follow.

From all-inclusive, romantic beach vacations to nightlife, city life and history — many areas have become hot spots for gay travel, and for good reasons. Whether you’re looking for a vacation destination or a place to settle down for a while, these top five locales are not only gay-friendly, they have large LGBT communities too.
