Mild and cool, mile high Guadalajara is spread amid a Savannah of grasses and shrubbery and blooming flowers. For those interested in Latin American culture, there is a wealth of things to see and do. Theater, art exhibits, writers' forums, craft shows, drama clubs, museums, and concerts are but a few of the many offerings in this, the second largest city (5-6 million) in Mexico. Rodeos, soccer matches and health clubs beckon the more active. People watching is a favorite for the less active.
Guadalajara was founded in 1542 and was built according to classical urbanization designs of the time. A walk through the city center area is a rediscovery of over 400 years of history abounding with architectural gems and welcoming plazas. The Spanish Language School is located in a pleasant small house in a residential section of Guadalajara and is easily accessible via city bus to the downtown area.
