Hotel Frances, Guadalajara
Valentines day with our friends.
We always take a group to Guadalajara every year and stay at the Francis we get suit #307 for about $65 usd. Very nice great location and this year it was Guads birthday on Valentines day weekend. The fireworks were unbelievable. La Fuerentes cantina is just 2 blocks down on Pino Suarez lots of action there. Horse and buggy rides were 200 pesos for 4 people. Fun Fun. Charles Bronson filmed one of his Death Wish films there.

Charming, Memorable. Great experiance.
Great fun staying in the heart of Guadalajara in a building built in 1610. If you like history you will love the experiance. Unfortunately the building needs repair but it was clean and servisable. The Mariachi music played in the open courtyard was excellent and could be heard in the whole building.
