Guadalajara is a big city famous for its nightlife, enjoy the city! Here are some tips:
1.- If you brought a guide book, of course we recommend that you read it and use it for the basics, but the fact is that all of our staff live here, so we're experts! Ask about the latest art exhibits, new clubs, and things happening THIS WEEK! There's no way your guidebook could mention it all, so ask us!
2.- We're just across the street from several money exchanges, and you'll want to have pesos with you (although in an emergency dollars often work). For the best rate, take out money with your atm card.; atms are all over the place.
3.- Mexico is a safe country, but that doesn't mean that you want to walk around with a lot of money in your pocket. Use the atm to take out money for a few days.
4.- The most accepted credit cards in the country are: Visa, Mastercard and American Express. Ask before ordering to make sure.
5.- The weather in Guadalajara is warm and dry all over the year, with some rain every now and then. During winter nights it gets a little cold, but a thick sweater is enough to keep you warm.
6.- Try avoiding eating on the street. Look for places that are well established and to be recognized for their cleanliness. Be careful of the hot or spicy foods if you are not used to them, and ask if you are in doubt so you do not have a bad experience. There is also in Guadalajara a wide variety of international fast food franchises, if you prefer to eat in familiar places.
7.- Ask to the Hostel staff which are the areas in the city to which you should avoid going, since as in every big city there are also not so safe zones. Try as frecuently as possible not to be alone or being out late at night. Ask always if you have any doubt. We will be more than happy to help you find your way around.
