“Lungs of the city”
Reviewed February 25, 2012

Guadalajara is a city of parks, of fountains of trees and roses. This park like so many others is part of the "luings of the city" allowing everyone to breathe fresh air every day.

“Parque Agua Azul”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

The best part is the butterfly aviary...but the park has lots of other outstanding features...but a park is a park...and that is what it is.

“Very dirty and supposedly dangerous”
Reviewed August 3, 2010

We went here to experience the Tianguis Cultural (Cultural market) on a Saturday and believe me it was anything but cultural. It was full of low-rent stalls selling cheap tat, the sort of rubbish you can find anywhere in Mexico in any of the dirty markets in the dirty barrios. As we arrived the taxi driver said "Take care with your wallet, it's like Tepito in there". And he was right.

And by the way, I'm no snooty foreign tourist, I'm a Mexican resident so I know my way around this country and can spot a worthless "attraction" when I see it. It might have been good once, but this tianguis has gone bad somewhere along the line.

“Parque Agua Azul - our biggest city park”
Reviewed November 29, 2008

Parque Agua Azul is located almost downtown Guadalajara. It is the park that the majority of the tapatios - who do not have the luxury of big green areas in their neighborhood - go to enjoy the open spaces. There is always something going on - concerts, presentations. It is " real Mexico" - a place to visit on a Sunday with your family if you want to get the feel of Mexican life.
