Usually not too much changes in the theme park world in 3 years, so a delayed report is still gonna be mostly relevant. ;)

Good call on Fiesta Texas! Both parks have some similar theme elements, and yes, they're among the nicest looking parks in the chain.

Fantastic report!

I have to admit, Medusa is very high on my bucket list. I don't know why, but it intrigues me more than most other RMC's.

Thanks for sharing!

Day 4 - Guadalajara Culture Day

With the first leg of the trip in Mexico City complete, our next adventure required a quick hop to the west to the capital of the state of Jalisco...

Day 4 -- Culture Day in Guadalajara
Wednesday, March 25, 2015

The Report

Departing from the Benito Juárez airport in Mexico City, we had a short flight to Guadalajara on AeroMexico, a Delta Airlines affiliate and the flag carrier airline of Mexico. The Guadalajara airport is just a short distance south of the city center, where we'd be staying for the next two nights.

Guadalajara's downtown has a much smaller and more homogenous feel than Mexico City, but it was no less interesting to explore. And that we did, on a few different occasions. Our first day in Guadalajara included a long walking (and eating) tour, led by a local tour guide. I went out that evening with a small group to see the city at night. We also explored a little more after our park day on the 26th -- for the sake of ease, I'll just mix those pictures in with the larger batch from the 25th.

As with the Mexico City culture day post, it'll be easier to describe our adventures in the captions. So, here are a whole bunch of pictures of a pretty cool city!

Guadalajara Culture Day continued... at night!

So, let's jump back to Wednesday, March 25. After sunset, we had a small group go out and do a little more exploring, and I used it as a chance to do some night photography of the city's landmarks.

wow.. wonderful pictures, and brought back a crapton of memories for me. . as when I was much younger, one of the multiple trips to Mexico my family took was: Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Guanajuato.

we stayed in a resort in Guadalajara, but I clearly remember touring the city on a couple of days, and several of your pics are things I saw, and didn't recall until I saw you pic (and my brain went. . that looks familiar!).

thanks so much for sharing. Starting off my Friday with some great happy memories :)
