Welcome to Gaydalajara!

Esa página está disponible también en español.

Mexico's second biggest city, Guadalajara has also been called by some its gayest and there are is an enormous selection of places to drink and cruise.

The gay scene is centered on two neighborhoods. The biggest number of places are in the historic center (that perhaps appeal to a more working class crowd). The other hot spot is the modern neighborhood of the Zona Rosa (around Av Chapultepec) where the places tend to be larger, more upscale (and more expensive).

For other destinations in Jalisco state, see our pages for Puerto Vallarta and Ajijic and Lake Chapala.

Centro Historico Guadalajara

This area is busy night and day and most of the gay and lesbian bars, clubs and saunas are located close by. There's also plenty of people watching and cruising along the busy streets, especially on the several pedestrian-only streets in the center. Most of the gay action takes place at night but there are also a few cafes with a daytime crowd.

Zona Rosa Paseo Chapultepec

This neighborhood is centered on the wide Chapultepec boulevard in a more modern part of the city west of the centre. Bounded by Av Mexico to the north and Av Niños Heroes to the south. This is a busy area day and night and is great for people watching, shops, patios. There is a grouping of gay bars, discos and shops near here as well which have a more upscale (and more expensive) vibe than those in the Centro Historico.

De verdad que falta mucha cultura para lugares de reunión tranquilos, platicas amenas con amigos no solo jóvenes sino también arriba de 40, casi todos los lugares se centran en desmadre, ligues, etc. Guadalajara es una ciudad que ya necesita lugares para todos y no solo par aun sector.
