Free tours to Zapotlanejo
Free Saturday bus tours to the fashion center of Zapotlanejo started last weekend and are set to continue for a limited period. The promotion is organized jointly by the city governments of Guadalajara and Zapotlanejo, a busy town situated 25 kilometers east of the metropolitan area.
The tour includes a stop at the famous Calderon Bridge, the site of a key battle in Mexico’s independence struggle. There’s plenty of time to browse the scores of clothing stores in the city center (some estimates suggest there are around 2,000 of them), before heading to the charming Hacienda Coyotes ecotourism center for a tour and an explanation of the temazcal (sweat lodge) ritual. Lunch may be taken here, if desired.
