The name is almost impossible to pronounce, but the Mexican beauty Tlaquepaque is handcraft, art, music and gastronomy at it’s best…
Tlaquepaque, Guadalajara, Mexico // December 2017
Guadalajara is one of the biggest cities of Mexico, and – naturally – doesn’t have that charming village feeling many Mexican small towns have.
Tlaquepaque has exactly that feeling, and is only 20 minutes outside Guaralajara city.
You won’t believe your eyes when you’ve just left the busy busy highway of Guadalajara, and enter…
The very essence of Mexico:
…everything you’d ever need for a perfect Mexican day.

Mexico is, like many other Latin American countries, known for it’s handcraft.
Here in Tlaquepaque you can ofte be pretty sure that the people behind the table is the creator of the handcraft, and that the money oo directly to them.
All you need to do is to ask!
Mexicans are very open and friendly.
Dance & mariachi
The restaurant «El Patio» is known for it’s mariachi and Dance show, and we were so Lucky to see it this time!
It’s a firework – lots of dance, wonderful dresses, singing, trumpets and guitars playing – this is the part where you wonder if you’ve ended up in a Mexican movie.
Tlaquepaque is Mexico in a nutshell.
It’s charming atmosphere and art, music, handcraft and dance everywhere makes this city one of our favourites!
