The food is delicious. Like in any other part of Mexico it is spicy and there are a lot of tacos and tortas.

Otherwise there's a lot of different restaurants with all kinds of food.

Of course the center which has a lot of beautiful bilduings. Tlaquepaque is also beautiful and all the nearby pueblos mágicos like tequila, tapalpa, mazamitla etc. There is also the guachimontones pyramids that are round.

There is a new place which is called mercado Mexico in Chapultepec. It is the hipster part of guadalajara, full of bars and different restaurants. Mercado Mexico is a new concept where there is a lot of different restaurants and a centered area where you eat. So you can go with your family but each one ear from different restaurants

Is the nightlife good in Guadalajara? Where is good to go?

Chapultepec is good for cheap hipster bars. There are also a lot of night clubs but those are more expensive because in order to get a good table you have to buy a bottle of alcohol which is like 1500 pesos.

What advice would you give future students heading to Guadalajara?

Definitely use Uber or buy the mibici service ( public bycicle service). The traffic is increasing and the public transportation is not so reliable
