While the road trip from Los Angeles to Guadalajara runs down the coast of the US, affording stunning views over the Gulf of California, it can also take over one day to complete. For those with less time to spare, flying is by far the fastest option. A flight lasting just 3h 15m transports travelers from Los Angeles International Airport to Guadalajara International Airport, with airlines such as Interjet, Aeromexico, United Airlines and Alaska Airlines operating flights between the two cities.
A gem in West Mexico, Guadalajara is perhaps most famous for two things: tequila and mariachi music! As a result, it’s a great city in which to experience both one evening in the city. There are also a number of interesting architectural sights to see, from the intricate Guadalajara Cathedral to the neo-gothic Templo Expiatorio del Santísimo Sacramento. For anyone visiting as a family, the Selva Mágica amusement park is a must. As well as exploring the city sights, indulge in some retail therapy at the huge San Juan de Dios indoor market, at which you’ll find everything from clothing to food. Don’t forget to bargain!
