Guadalajara is the undisputed shopping capital of México. Modern malls, some very specialized, are located throughout the city. Tlaquepaque and, on a smaller scale, Tonalá are located within the city limits of Guadalajara and offer a shopping experience that is considered by many to be unmatched in the world.
The downtown area is also home to the very interesting “Mercado Libertad”, located at the eastern end of the Centro Histórico section of downtown. This market is said to be the largest “under roof” market in México. You might miss a special item that you’ve always wanted if you don’t take the time to go shopping during your visit.
