Guadalajara is the second largest city in Mexico with a population of 1.5 million people and is ranked as the 8th best city to visit in South America. It’s known for the tequila, mariachi, its rich history and its traditions. What’s so unique about the city is that the city itself is very historical while it has managed to become the tech hub of Mexico, and therefore called the Silicon Valley of Mexico.
Guadalajara is located in the State of Jalisco, located in the North West of Mexico near the Atlantic Ocean. It has a humid subtropical climate meaning it has dry warm winters and hot wet summers. The temperature is high all year round with an average max of 27.9 degrees Celsius. The rainy season is generally from June until September with very common afternoon storms. A cold ‘breeze’ might not be a bad thing if you’re sunbathing with 25 degrees.

Like so many towns on the Adriatic, Monopoli's history has been thoroughly influenced by its east-facing position and its fortified sea-front walls and castle tell many a story.
Parking in or around Piazza XX Settembre, location of a colourful street market, head east towards the cathedral. To find it just look upwards and you are sure to see its elegantly conceived bell tower thrusting into the sky. Built in 1693, the tower is over 60 metres high, completely dominating the town below.
