Besides the apartments themselves, the Plaza de Artesanías (the oldest shopping plaza in the city) includes stores selling jewelry, mosaic work, clothing, leather items, plus a micro brewery, a travel agency, and a DHL office. It is also the home of La Mata Tinta, a restaurant and art gallery popular in the evenings for its live music. (If you need to rest after a long day, you may want to stop in the restaurant to get a meal or a snack for carry-out to your apartment.)

On Calle Independéncia
Wandering out of the Plaza de Artesanías, you will find yourself on Calle Juárez. It and nearby Calle Independéncia are homes to Tlaquepaque’s most successful shops and restaurants. One block distant is the Parián, and one block further is Parque Hidalgo, the heartbeat of Tlaquepaque and the site of many free music and dance performances.Tlaquepaque church

If you care to go farther abroad, Tapatío Tour, a double-deck bus, whose route takes visitors to points of interest in the Guadalajara area, stops just outside Plaza de Artesanías. Alternatively, nearby GDL Tours runs excursions to places beyond the city, such as the town of Tequila.

For the international traveler, Tlaquepaque is an excellent place to stay, being closer to Guadalajara’s airport (about 15 minutes distant) than is Guadalajara itself (map)!
