Zapopan is a small gem in the middle of Guadalajara. It's small and quaint. I wish I had had more time to explore this area. I'm looking forward to going back and eat in one of the many restaurants and look at the shops. I was so taken with this area I'm going to book a hotel here next time I visit Guadalajara.

Basílica and Zapopan community
Jan 2020
Our guide, Carlos, gave us a most interesting commentary of Zapopan as we drove through the communities and high end shopping areas. His English is excellent so he added lots of details of modern culture and lifestyle in Guadalajara.
Because of a ceremony being held in the Basílica, we couldn’t go inside, nevertheless Carlos pointed out historical features of the building and gave us a guided tour through the Huichol Museum connected to the Basilica. Then he helped us buy great tacos in the market next door. All in all, this was a memorable tour.

Glorious past shadowing the decrepit present
Jan 2020
An outstanding church building, with an exterior much more impressive than the interior.
The courtyard is cramped though and always full of people, making it difficult to take a photo of the tall building from farther away.

Basilica of our lady of Zapopan.
Beautiful church that anchors the Plaza de Las Americas. They were having service that night so we only peeked in quickly.

A must-see when visiting Guadalajara
Sep 2019
The Basilica is at one end of a plaza; the other end is a very nice "entrance". Both are worth seeing. Inside the Basilica is the Virgin of Zapopan. To one side is a small Museum of Huichol Culture which is fascinating (the Huichol are an indigenous people in this part of Mexico. They are known for maintaining their pre-conquest language, religion, and traditions, and for their magnificent artwork). The Museum itself is worth the trip.

Worth the trip, and Huichol museum is right next door
Aug 2019
Made the trip to see La Virgen de Zapopan. It is a lovely statue. It was also good to learn more about the Huichol people from the small but interesting museum hidden away in a corner of the building (it is next to the banos, in fact). Also good to read up about the trip La Virgen makes around Jalisco each year (in her own car!) - started in the early 17th century when here image was taken throughout Jalisco, and a plague that was ravaging the area suddenly vanished. Good story! She now makes a trip around the state each year.

This place is far away from other attractions, but should be on your must see list. It's near by a popular mall.
