GUADALAJARA: The most Mexican city of Mexico

Hey everyone!!!

I would want to post some pictures of Guadalajara's infraestructure, like avenues, streets, boulevards and freeways to keep on topic.

Guadalajara is the second largest city of Mexico, it has 6 million people in the metropolitan area, so it is a really big city. The city has some particular facts:
-It is the most Mexican city of Mexico, home to some Mexican traditions such as Mariachi and Tequila.
-It has the greatest community of retired Americans outside the USA.
-It has some of the most beautiful boulevards and streets in Mexico, full of trees.

Sorry for the spam, but they're very good.


Vallarta Avenue











Mariano Otero Avenue





Nodo Vial Cubos









Glorieta Minerva









GalerÝas









Light train

Nice....but it looks more North American than Mexican. This shot in particular could be anywhere in Southern California:

I disagree, the pavement, the paint used and the large amounts of yellow dividers can make the location very obvious.

The avenues look great and very green!
If you think is not the most Mexican city, just look at its historic downtown.

But there aren't any pictures of the historic core, so how would we see that?

Third world?

I don't consider Mexico to be third world. True, many parts are poor, but there are also a lot of middle class/rich people there and many of the towns and cities are nice (good mix of old/preserved and modern). Many of the pictures I've seen on here show that many parts of Mexico are as developed as anywhere else. I also read somewhere that the city of Monterrey in Mexico has one of the highest GDP's in Latin America.

Well, I'm mexican and I understand that you think Mexico is very poor and not develop. Cause there are lots of prejudice about Mexico.
Certanly is the not richest or best country of the world, but is a country that is under development. And it has a lot to offer and there are some nice develop areas in Mexico.

Guadalajara doesn't have 6 million people on its greater area. I think it has something like 4 or 4.1 million.

Guadalaja is considered as the most mexican city cuz is the cradle of Mariachi, Tequila and mexican traditional music.

It doesnt matter what you consider, statistically, mexico is 3rd world. Yes, there are 1st world parts, but parts dont make an entire country.

Is Mexico one of the most developed 3rd world countries? Yes, but that doesnt change the clasification.

And no, Ive never been to Tijuana. But Ive been to DF, Cuernavaca, Acapulco, Cancun and Puebla. Im not talking by experience, Im talking based on fact.
