Guadalajara

26 March 2012 | Guadalajara, Jalisco
Capt. Crabby
Friday PM last, we returned from a 4-day excursion to Guadalajara. It was a really nice trip, about 4 hours on a really nice, comfortable A/C bus with movies, bathrooms and comfortable seats. The price was about $50 US round trip-very reasonable. We got a beautiful room in a very eclectic B&B type place owned by an American landscape architect. The gardens were gorgeous, and our large suite had a beautiful private patio that was about 30X50'. We were just a few blocks from the historic district, which is really scenic with really cool horse-drawn carriages for sightseeing. Robert, the owner of our B&B, turned us on to some local restaurants that had great food, really cheap. Eating out is so reasonable here that we rarely cook on the boat.
Saturday, we went out for a sail and saw the final race of the Banderas Bay regatta. Very cool.
Sunday, there was a huge Tourism show here for travel agents which of course, we attended. They put a a huge venue for this on the Malecon, and had quite an extravaganza of folkloric dancing, music, food, drinks etc.
We actually stayed up till midnight to watch the fireworks display.
This week, we're going to Punta de Mita to anchor for a few days with our friends on "Endless Summer".
More later.
