Learn More about Guadalajara and What It Offers for Expats

The capital of the Mexican state of Jalisco, Guadalajara is the region's biggest city and the second most populous metropolis in Mexico, after Mexico City. One of the country's main cultural centers, it is full of attractive historic architectural styles, including Spanish colonial, Baroque, Art Deco, and Neo-Gothic. Its historic center is filled with theaters, museums, and art galleries to entertain travelers and expats alike. At the same time, it's a city with an eye on the future; since 1996 it has been fringed by production plants for multinational companies, including Hewlett Packard, Kodak, IBM, and Motorola, and the city's economic activity is now dominated by electronics and beer production.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world.

    A job offer in Mexico's "Silicon Valley" is by no means the only reason to come here -- I LOVE the dynamic expat lifestyle in Guadalajara!
