Cultural traditions hold
strong in Guadalajara
Guadalajara is full of surprises. A cosmopolitan metropolis modern, but
authentic and traditional at the same time. Many of things which are
typically associated with Mexico have their origins in Jalisco. These
include rodeos called charreadas, mariachis, and of course the tequila.
Charrería
When the Spanish first settled in colonial Mexico had very large
cattle-raising estates and soon the indigenous people known as
“vaqueros” became excellent horsemen. Smaller landholders, known as
rancheros or ranchers, were the first genuine “charros” and they are
credited as the inventors of the charreada. The charro's elaborate
costume and trappings reflect the merging of three distinct cultures that
create the Mexican cowboy: Arabian, Spanish and indigenous American.
Gentleman cowboys adorned their trousers with silver buttons down the
heavily embroidered outside seams. The short jackets and wide-brim,
cone- shaped hats were trimmed in a likewise fashion. Today it has
become a national sport a multi-colored spectacle.

The charreadas consist of various events demostrating the skill of the
rider in roping, handling of his horse, lassoing, or controlling a bull or a
wild bronco. For the women there are a precision equestrian even called
the “scaramuza” with the participants dressed as “Adelitas” or women of
the revolution."
Mariachi
It has become synonymous of joy, music and party. The mariachi costume
is famous worldwide. Traditional mariachi include guitars the “vihuela”, a
high-pitched, round-backed guitar which provides rhythm, and a bass
guitar called a “guitarrón”, violins and trumpets. The mariachis use the
charro outfit, usually in black with silver-colored buttons and chains
running down their pants legs and up their vests, and with the
unmistakable large Mariachi hat.
Although there is still much controversy, it seems that this type of musical
ensembles were originated in north of the state, in the region of Los Altos
de Jalisco. Most legends put the origin of the modern mariachi in the town
of Cocula.
The word mariachi was thought to have derived from the French word
“mariage" (marriage) dating from the French Intervention in Mexico in the
1860s. The origin of the word is still in dispute but most of the prominent
theories state that it has indigenous roots.
In Guadalajara, you may see them playing in a restaurant or bar, or in the
traditional Mariachi Plaza, and of course in the famous Parian in
Tlaquepaque.
Tequila
It is a distilled beverage made from blue agave plant, primarily in the area
surrounding the town of Tequila. It is the most popular and representative
beverage of Mexico in the world. The name tequila is a controlled
denomination of origin, recognized internationally.
Tequila is usually bottled in one of five categories:
Blanco ("white") also known as "silver", un-aged and bottled or stored
immediately after distillation.
Reposado ("rested"), aged a minimum of two months, but less than a year
in oak barrels. It is softer than white, has a golden color and its flavor has
a hint of oak.
Añejo ("aged" or "vintage"), aged a minimum of one year, but less than
three years in small white oak barrels. The color ranges from gold to dark
amber strong, its taste is strongly impregnated with wood. If it has been
aged for at least three years, can be considered Extra Añejo ("extra aged"
or "ultra aged").
The agave landscape and the ancient industrial facilities of Tequila have
now been inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List.

Zapopan
Zapopan is the second most populous municipality in the state of Jalisco
and ranks seventh in Mexico. The name Zapopan comes from the
Nahuatl word “tzapotl” which means among sapote trees. It is known for
its architecture, museums, premier shopping centers, major
entertainment venues and for having some of the best hotels in the
metropolitan area of Guadalajara. Zapopan also has natural outdoor
attractions like El Diente and the Bosque de La Primavera (Forest of the
Spring), among others.
Annually, a large procession in the image of Our Lady of the
Conception’s honor takes place on the 12th of October. Starting at 6 am,
the image is carried on the streets from the Guadalajara Cathedral to the
Basilica of Zapopan. The streets, including the wide avenue of Manuel
Avila Camacho in Zapopan proper, are packed with dancers, vendors
selling traditional food and crafts and spectators. The Basilica of
Zapopan is considered the third most important pilgrimage center in the

The town’s cultural heritage dates back to the origins of Mesoamerica,
with the remains of Chiquihuitillo and shaft tombs. The first peoples to
live in this area were the Nahua, the Toltecs and the Otomí, and it was
part of one of the most importart obsidian trade routes in the area. The
village of Santiago de Tequila was founded in 1530 by Cristóbal de
Oñate, and it is located about 37 miles west of Guadalajara,
approximately one hour drive.
Tequila is surrounded by a unique landscape with bluish-green patches
of agave plants, used as a base ingredient of tequila, the renowned
Mexican drink. In the evenings and early mornings you can smell the
sweet scent of cooked agave, this aroma will captivate your senses.
In 1600, Pedro Sánchez de Tagle decided to build a large scale distilling
operation based on a local fermented beverage made with the local
agave plant, and the tradition started. He also introduced the idea of
cultivating this plant, native to the region, on a mass scale.

Archaeological Sites
El Ixtépete o Iztepete
It is located south of the municipality of Zapopan. The area is protected
as an ecological park of 5 hectares, but it is thought that the total area
of the settlement was even bigger.
The site contains a Teotihuacan style pyramid which is twenty meters
long, sixteen meters wide and 1.83 meters high. Construction phases
of this pyramid date back from the 5th century to the 10th century.
Etzatlán
Its first inhabitants were Nahua with Toltec influence. In El Arenal, an
important ceremonial center, with three circular pyramids - the type of
constructions made by Guachimontones - and monumental Shaft
Tombs. The tombs are often found in groups, archaeologists have
placed some of the tombs as early a 900 AD. The depths of the shafts
from the surface range from 4.6 meters (15 ft.) to more than 15 meters
(50 ft.). In the tomb shown above, there are three large compartments
connected by tunnels. The tombs were made for members of the chiefly
lineage.
In Etzatlán there is also El Palacio de Ocomo, another of Western
Mexico's unique archaeological sites, is one of the biggest tecpans
(palaces) of the ancient Mexico, it has 125 meters for side, and it is

measures 1000 square meters. In the site there are remains of
terraces, sunken courts, pyramids and platforms.

Guachimontones (Shaft Tombs)
A ceremonial center near the town of Teuchitlán, about an hour west of
Guadalajara.
The dominant features at los Guachimontones are circular stepped
pyramids in the middle of circular building complexes. Another
characteristic of these people was the construction of shaft tombs.
The archaeological site is characterized by formal circular architecture
which is unique not only in Mesoamerica, but in the entire world. The
site also includes shaft tombs, concentric circular plazas, one of the
largest ball courts in northern Mesoamerica, as well as the only known
example of a Mesoamerican amphitheater.
The ceremonial building is a perfect circle and its floors are an exact 52
year calendar. A post hole was located at the very highest level, from
which the priests held and rock back and forth, simulating the flight of a
bird. Such tradition was an offering toEhecatl, a pre-Columbian deity
associated with the wind. Schude: Daily from 10:00 to 17:00 hrs

quiet and isolated beaches. It is an ideal place for those who love being
