Discover the enchanting colonial villages of Tlaquepaque and Tonalá, famous for their artisans and colorful handicrafts. Pass by the markets and workshops to witness how local craftsmen have mastered glass blowing, pottery, jewelry, and much more.
This small-group tour takes you along cobblestone streets in these idyllic towns to experience genuine Mexican culture and architecture. Start in Tlaquepaque, best known for its handcrafted goods, such as ceramics, woodcarvings, and leatherwork. Stroll down the narrow streets to find shops that were once colonial mansions and now sell charming Mexican crafts.
As you visit art and craft factories with your guide, take the opportunity to watch local artisans at work. See a local mariachi band play, buy a traditional lunch if you're hungry, and enjoy some free time before your guide takes you to Tonalá, another town known for its handcrafted goods.
On certain days of the week, a large market takes over the main streets of Tonalá, and people from all over the area come to shop for locally made arts and crafts. Your guide provides a brief explanation of the region's history before you visit a few of the local workshops and factories.
After you've browsed the wide variety of ceramics, hand-blown glass, wood figurines, wrought iron, jewelry, and furniture being produced or sold, head back to your hotel in Guadalajara as the tour comes to an end.
