Guadalajara and Puerto Vallarta in Jalisco, Mexico are cities rich in culture and history, I also visited Lake Chapala and Ixlahuacan.
I was very fortunate to spend a month in Jalisco. Most of it was in Guadalajara, while I was there I also visited Puerto Vallarta, Lake Chapala, and spend a couple of days in the small town of Ixtlahuacan. Jalisco has mountains, forests, and beaches. Because of this it is such a beautiful state, full of nature and life. I had many more photos I took while there, unfortunately, they were all stolen except for these few.
This is where I spent most of my time in Jalisco, 3-4 weeks. During my time there, I traveled all over the city. I didn’t have a car at this time, so I walked everywhere I went exploring the city on foot.
Lake Chapala is Mexico’s largest freshwater lake and is known for it’s large community of American retirees.
Ixtlahuacán is a very small town outside of Guadalajara. It is considered one of the most remote towns in Jalisco. It was a beautiful and fascinating town. I stayed with a family there for a couple of days and they showed me all around the town.
Puerto Vallarta was such a pretty beach town. I had never been anywhere like it. The city is built on a mountain that leads into a beautiful beach.
While driving along the coast in Jalisco we encountered a waterfall with kids jumping off of it. It looked like fun so my friend Jeremy and I decided to join them. We met a boy named Jesus who showed us how to jump off the waterfall safely.
