The historic center of Guadalajara has lots of big open public spaces and pedestrianized streets which make for great people watching. In the evenings, the pace slows down but the crowds remain so there is almost a carnival-like atmosphere. Photo by Doug Dosdall

Welcome to Gaydalajara!

Esa página está disponible también en español.

Mexico's second biggest city, Guadalajara has also been called by some its gayest. The gay scene is split in two with many places in the historic center (that perhaps appeal to a more working class crowd) and another grouping of places around the newer Av Chapultepec which have a more upscale (and more expensive) vibe.

Neighborhoods

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.

Paseo Chapultepec

Wide boulevard in a modern part of the city west of the centre. Bounded by Av Mexico to the north and Av Ninos 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.

What are people saying about us?

Alan

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.
