This is my last trip just back last night. I was in Mexico ,especially in Jalisco state and just around Guadalajara and its wonderful nearby cities of Tepatitlan de Morelos and San Juan de los Lagos. The area tourist office at http://www.visitmexico.com/en/guadalajara
This was a business trip so the time there was limited but thanks to the local friends I did see some of the town , a nice French hotel, and wonderful church. Some of the pictures were taken by these friends as I am still waiting for them, my camera died out there ::) The airport was that of Guadalajara ;https://www.aeropuertosgap.com.mx/en/guadalajara-3.html
I went first to my first town San Juan de los Lagos, where the church is second only to Guadalupe in Mexico city as the most important there; already visited by Pope John Paul II. http://www.sanjuandeloslagos.gob.mx/
Here I visited the church of our lady of San Juan de los Lagos, 76 miles or 122 kms north of Guadalajara. The sanctuary begain in 1542 and the church in 1732. it is wonderful and a must to see, more here http://www.sanjuandeloslagos.gob.mx/
