How to get around in Guadalajara?

Getting around in Guadalajara is easily done on foot as there are plenty of things to do in the pedestrian-friendly downtown area. If you’re looking for some activities further from the bustle of the city, you have a few choices of how to get there.

Buses

Ride the local Macrobús, which stops at many major tourist destinations, for only $6.00 MXN, or if you’re in a hurry, hop on the TUR express for $12.00 MXN. Be warned that the TUR express only covers part of the city and won’t take you to every popular destination. If you’re taking the bus frequently, there is an option to purchase a transit card for $15.00 MXN so that you can easily swipe to ride and cut down on carrying pocket change. The buses, while cheap, are very popular with locals, so be prepared for cramped spaces.

Metro

The metro is a cheaper alternative for getting around Guadalajara. One ride will cost you $7.00 MXN, while a transit card is $20.00 MXN. The lines run east-west and north-south and are used frequently by locals travelling to and from work. The metro won’t get you to as many tourist locations as the buses, but it does stop at some popular attractions such as the San Juan de Dios Market.

Taxis

Many hotels are happy to arrange a taxi for you. Be careful to hail a cab that has its taxi license visible. It is appropriate to decide the fare before you leave for your destination, or tell the driver to turn on the meter, as they are often turned off. If you’re unsure of prices, ask a hotel or store attendant for an approximate amount. Often, prices increase by 25% in the evening hours from 10 pm – 6 am.

Car rentals

If you need a car, there are car rentals available at the airport or at Niños Heroes at Manzano. All that is required is a valid U.S. driver’s license. If you are not a confident driver, be aware that the U.S. State Department has issued warnings about driving in Guadalajara due to a busy downtown. With plenty of public transit options, driving is not required.


What are the visa and passport requirements when flying to Guadalajara?

U.S. citizens don’t need a visa to enter Guadalajara. However, you must present a valid passport and fill out an immigration form, which is obtainable at travel agencies, airlines or at the point of entry to Mexico. For foreign nationals, please check this website.
