Teatro Degollado

Opened in 1886, this large neo-Classical building is home to the city's opera and orchestra.

Reviewed By Jose Luis G - San Pedro Garza Garcia, Mexico

Not much to say. Nice building. Good place to take a couple of pictures and keep going. There is a guided tour inside which I don't think is worth it.

The Magic Top Museum

We're looking for the curiosity and excitement of the children about science and arts, through interactive experiments on everyday life: that's The Magic Top Museum, where to know it's fun!

Reviewed By muxer29 - Guadalajara, Mexico

It's one of the cheapest options for kids entertainment in Guadalajara, the entrance is $40 pesos per person.
There are indoor and outdoor activities for kids of all ages! There's special zones for crawling babies, for toddlers, preschoolers and older kids.
One of the most popular features is the Bubbles, they can do them of all shapes and sizes and be inside one! There's a mini city with: supermarket, restaurant, bakery, hospital, library, construction section.
Outdoors there is a mandala (labyrinth) and 2 Playgrounds. There's also a zip line and a train, for an extra $15 pesos/person per ride.
Right before closing time they have a "dancing fountain" show.
There is a cafeteria where you can find sandwiches, sodas and cookies. They also allow you to bring your own food/beverages inside.
On Thursdays the entry is free. Even during holidays! But it will usually be impossibly crowded during those days.

Bosque Colomos

Reviewed By Alfredo J - San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

This park is really incredible, first because of its location in the center of the city. Second its HUGE, you could get lost in there. The bosque, or forest, is divided into 2 sides, the first side has paved walkways and the 3 side is more wild.
I was really impressed by the work of the gardeners who maintain the garden. We have gone there twice.

Guadalajara Cathedral

Reviewed By EMILE D - Guatemala City, Guatemala

Big church, with beautiful architecture. Built in stone, with beautiful facades on its 4 sides. Its domes and towers are magnificent. At the interior there are a lot of details to appreciate. The main altar has beautiful and colorful stained glass windows and golden pieces that enhance its awesomeness. There are also details in wood and beautiful images. Built in 1600 with a neo-Gothic style. A recommended visit, it is a beautiful attraction.
