Dios de los Muertos – Mexico

I visited Jiquilpan, Mexico on Saturday November 3, 2018 as the City was in the midst of celebration Dios de los Muertos. Typically celebrated between October 31 and November 2nd – Jiquilpan has a 4 day celebration from the 1st through the 4th.

A celebration that memorializes the dead. Families and communities celebrate the lives of those lost in this life. It is an incredibly beautiful, colorful and sacred Mexican tradition.

A vastly more purposeful, meaningful, colorful ,and all inclusive celebration that that of the typical American Halloween.

It is rare for me to recommend a hotel. It is even more rare to advise you to “Stay ONLY HERE.” The NH Hotel in Zona Centro Historico in Guadalajara is just that place – “Stay ONLY HERE.


Ramon and Patricia – NH Hotel – Guadalajara, MX


ALWAYS stay at the NH Hotel in downtown Guadalajara in the Zona Centro Historico. Ramon is THE World Class Guest Relations Manager and Patricia is a fantastico Guest Relations resource. The NH Hotel is the perfect place to reside to enjoy walking to the breathtaking historical treasures this city possesses. I recommend the 5th floor rooms facing east with the outdoor terrace – where one has an amazing view of Catedral Metropolitano (especially at night). Make CERTAIN you enjoy their restaurant on the 7th floor – PISO 7 – …SUPERB food, WORLD CLASS ARTWORK throughout the Restaurant (and hotel), beautiful architecture, GREAT WIFI, Outstanding staff — and my absolute favorite view in Guadalajara ( a dinner in PISO 7 after dark is memorable – breakfast is Off The Charts – Delicioso!!!!!!! ). Some of the imagery of this splendid hotel is included in this photo album BELOW (with permission).

Jiquilpan – A Pueblo Magico in Michoacan Mexico

Jiquilpan Mexico

Jiquilpan is located on the other side of Lake Chapala from Chapala and Ajijic – with a view of the lake in the distance. It is officially designated as a pueblo magico. It is a vibrant, small city, where the heartbeat of the village (as is typical in Mexico) is the central plaza.

I visited Jiquilpan on Saturday November 3, 2018 as the City was in the midst of celebration Dios de los Muertos. Typically celebrated between October 21 and November 2nd – Jiquilpan has a 4 day celebration from the 1st through the 4th.
