City: Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico
My Home: 3 bedroom apartment
Chapalita is a traditional neighborhood, were you can find everything to have a good time. I've lived here with my husband since we got married in 2007; he had to find this place by himself because I was living in Mexico City. My requirements were that I could go anywhere without a car.
Teresa's Guide to Chapalita
You can find restaurants for all tastes, with a comfy atmosphere. On Sundays you can take a walk and look at the street art gallery in la Glorieta de Chapalita, and some streets are opened only for bicycling. You can even find a dogsled!
Our neighborhood has an excellent location and at the same time is very peaceful. It's within minutes of several highways and its huge sidewalks are perfect for evening walks with your dog, having a mug with your friends, or sitting under a tree for a good read.
