Hi All - I'm beginning research for a Christmas trip and don't see exactly what I'm lookin for on the forums. Yesterday I happened upon REALLY cheap airfare to Guadalajara - so I grabbed it up and figured I'd decide what to do later! So, here's the scoop, I've got roundtrip air in and out of GDL Dec 24 - Jan 2. We're not interested in hanging out in a big city so would like to leave and see maybe 4 different places to enjoy a laid back "real" Mexico experience. Not necessarily all the hottest tourist spots - we're more about sidewalk cafes or a picnic by the lake or watching local artisans work than touring museums. We've seen every beach hot spot over the last 30 years so that's not necessary. Any thoughts on an itinerary that would start and end in GDL???
