My wife and I would never have had the incredible Guadalajara experience without Lorenzo and Cristobal as their insights, suggestions, but above all, their hospitality made our four day stay absolutely wonderful. Over glasses of wine every evening at 6:00 plans were made, stories were shared, and friendships were born. The best part.....aside from Cristobal's fajita lunch on the roof top terrace!!....was the care that Lorenzo took in making sure we headed out each morning and evening with detailed directions and a calm assurance that we were in for a time to remember.
Just one example out of the dozen times that Lorenzo went out of his way to take care of us...... After a long day of flights we just wanted a simple, relaxing dinner so Lorenzo said that he would walk the 6 blocks with us to La Cafeteria to not only show us the way but to show us that walking at night was really very safe. We get to the restaurant, a cute house on a corner with a front patio full of tables, one of them with our names on it. But....we didn't arrive with pesos and they don't take credit cards. Not to worry! Lorenzo walks back to La Perla and returns shortly with 500 pesos, saying, "Enjoy dinner! Pay me back tomorrow!"....and leaves us to relax over dinner. At that moment we knew that we had absolutely picked the right place to stay.
The location was perfect, the room with the terrace delightful, and the whole La Perla family (Lorenzo, Cristobal, Guillermo, Martin, Nacho, Zapatito,...) are the real Guadalajara! Thank you, again!
