Dickinson Guest House B&B is located in Guadalajara, Mexico in the peaceful residential neighborhood of Chapalita, (not to be confused with LAKE CHAPALA), that has slowly been absorbed into Guadalajara proper. It's an upmarket area, known for it's shaded avenues, it's fine homes and some of the best shopping and dining in the city. Chapalita is fast becoming the new business hub of Guadalajara; sleek new hotels in this area attest to this. Guadalajara's famous Historical Center - about 15 minutes away from the B&B - is a fascinating part of the city that lends itself to a leisurely exploration of it's Spanish past, it's typical architecture, and it's famous outdoor market, San Juan de Dios. On weekdays, it is business as usual. But Sunday mornings belong to bicycle riders, families, couples or friends of all walks of life - on foot, bikes and even skates. It is a time when the parks are filled with traditional entertainment and regional foods are abundantly present. This is just one day that can be used to relax close to home without big city traffic and enjoy the Sunday Art Exhibit and Sale at Chapalita Park or cook a nice meal for dinner and watch a movie. It is a great idea to arrive on a Saturday and relax into your own space and get your bearings before heading out to many great adventures or a working holiday! This classic yet modern neighborhood has everything to be self contained-yet just close enough to all venues of the historical past dating to the 1600's!
