An amazingly large park in this massive city with lots of nature, hikers and bicyclists. I feel confident it is a safe park but would like to see more security services and better parking

We took a local bus to La Primavera, and while I didn't mind the hike, we didn't have time to make it to the thermal water and back before closing. Or, planning to camp out there over night is another option. The 4 stars is only based on what we had a chance to see. I would have gone for... More

Nice place to spend the afternoon. If you are visiting Guadalajara for an extended period of time then you will probably want to break away from the congestion for a while. Primavera is an easy 45 minute local bus ride (#729) out of the city. It is a great place to take in some clean, fresh air while hiking through... More

As a resident of the Bosques de la Primavera I can assure you that this place is "heaven on earth". I live on the Eastern edge of the forest in Zapopan, and we made a point of making this lovely property our permanent home. From here, we have a spectacular view to the West with nothing but the mountains and... More

We asked at the tourist office and got the number of the appropriate bus from downtown Guadalajara (6 pesos). It took about an hour to get to the small town off the highway, and then it was a 20 minute walk to the park gate (5 pesos). From there, we walked three km to the Río Caliente, a pleasant stroll...

This place is amazing, it's almost unrealistic the fact that it is only like 5 min away from the city. Gorgeous sights.

Having grown up in the land of the well maintained provincial parks of Canada I was disappointed by the lost potential of this beautiful part of Guadalajara. It is a sadly neglected place whose better maintenance and a more imaginative use of space could raise it to a world class city park. I compare it to Stanley Park in Vancouver,... More
