Our favourite Mexican song is "GUADALAJARA! GUADALAJARA!
Delta welcomes us aboard at 2:00 pm in MIA and deposits us at 8:30 pm in GDL, and by the time we have passed through immigration and customs and bagged an airport taxi, we don't arrive at our lodgings until nearly 10:00 pm. Not to fear. Lucy, our hostess at the Olga Querida Hostel, …
... the growing communities on the shore. The water near the towns was often too polluted for swimming or eating the fish. None of the potential ex-pats mentioned the condition of the lake as a factor in deciding to stay and I am sure that the fancy real estate agents in the main towns would have had plenty of soothing words for any with concerns.
While stopped at Ajijic we decided to alter our route into Guadalajara to take us by the BMW Moto dealer on the way ...
... out on the street, and there would be a fireworks display later at night, we decided to head home. We didn't want to chance missing our bus. For the first time, we took a bus at night. Of course we were not the only ones on. So we felt very comfortable and safe. We would have no problem doing it again.
As usual, we took lots of photos ...
... 24h/7 rozstawalismy sie z pelna swiadomoscia wspaniale spedzonych chwil na kolejne 3 miesiace bez siebie. Ale te przyszle miesiace byly pelne pracy, ktora oboje chcielismy podjac po tak dlugim wypoczynku. Nie wiadomo kiedy, i czy wogole uda sie nam powtorzyc, podobnie dluga i ekscytujaca podroz. Jedno wiem na pewno, wypoczelismy na tyle by pracowac na to by moc realizowac podobne pomysly, moze juz nie tak dlugie ale rownie ...
I don't even know how to explain all the life in the air in this special place. And just when you thought fun was going to be regular again - Ismat has a street party as a customer appreciation event.
Having a good time - enjoying music - enjoying friends - what a great place. Do not go to a facility that has independent living - assisted living and then ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsOlga Querida Guadalajara
We wanted something central and at a reasonable price. I think we got what we expected. It is a ten to fifteen minute walk to the centre of Guadalajara (University Square) and buses run right past the door for US$ 0.50. The metro is three blocks away. The area may seem somewhat dowdy, (we arrived quite late at night when only the bars were open), but it's a typical blue-collar Mexican neighbourhood. We felt it was safe and didn't feel nervous walking about at any time.
The accommodations look really nice on the brochure, but need a slap of paint and some new hangers. The whole place is very clean and though there is nowhere to sit in the bedrooms, there is plenty of common space to pass the time. The breakfast is on the first floor in an attractive dining room/cum sitting room. Plenty of coffee and tea, toast, jam and cereals. We bought some cheese and ham from the OXXO store nearby to supplement the meal. We could have used the full kitchen had we chosen to do so.
What makes this place outstanding is the hostess, Lucy. She was extremely helpful, even bagging a parking space for us right outside the front door one evening while we were out to dinner. She lives there with her family, who are most charming. She's fluent in English, which is a big help. There's free WIFI throughout, and if you haven't brought your computer, there's a lap-top available.
All in all, there may be fancier places to stay. The premises is a trifle run down, but nothing a little paint and TLC won't address. Hopefully the owners will shell out a few pesos to bring the place back to brochure quality. We would probably stay here again.
Room Tip: There's one room facing the street that could be noisy. Ask for an interior room.
