If you are arriving from Guadalajara Libertador Miguel Hidalgo International Airport, you can take the Chapala - Guadalajara road to the city center. It will take you around 30 minutes to drive the 11 miles. In heavy traffic you can divert via the Mexico 23 route, which will only add a minute or two and a mile to your journey. Our Holiday Inn Guadalajara branch is just 3 miles from the city center on the Avenue Mariano Otero and will take you around 15 minutes. An alternative route is to go via Calzada Lazaro, which is a little longer at just over 4 miles and will take around 22 minutes.

Route 150 runs from southeast to northwest through Guadalajara, taking you to Tepic in the north and Morelia in the south. Route 54 runs north to Zacatecas and the 80 will take you northeast to San Luis Potosi. The roads in Guadalajara itself are mostly of good quality and driving can be a pleasure. Parking is reasonably easy to find but do watch out for touts who will guide you into the spaces. They will be looking for a tip to reward their efforts. Lots of hotels also have free parking.

Sixt Tips

Guadalajara is Mexico's second largest city and the capital of the state of Jalisco. The Centro Historico (historic downtown) area has lots of beautiful colonial buildings and striking murals by one of Mexico's most famous artists, José Clemente Orozco. Guadalajara Cathedral dates from the 1560s and includes an eclectic mix of architectural styles and important murals by Murillo. Bullfights take place every Sunday at the Plaza de Toros on Calzada Independencia. Tlaquepaque is just 4 miles to the southeast of the city center and has a craft center where you can buy lots of different artisan objects. There is also a well preserved colonial village to explore. Parque Agua Azul is the city's main park and is a great place to take a break from the bustle of the city. Plaza del Sol is the place to go to for fine dining and is also the main shopping area in the city, with lots of upscale stores and malls.

Will M.

We rented a car for 9 days. This is my second time in three years renting from Sixt.

David is awesome. He speaks 4 or more languages.

He is super friendly and reasonable.

Most rental agencies in Mexico pressure you into buying CDW insurance, which doubles your rate.

My Visa covers the CDW if I use it to pay and the rental period is not longer than 12 days.

It cost me $400 for 9 days which i thought was fair.

I will call David directly next time I'm in beautiful Guadalajara to set up my rental from Sixt.

Elias P.

Rented from Sixt and after some dealing they upgraded me to a nice minivan free of charge. I do recommend sixt.

I did not know about Sixt until a relative recommended it to me. The arrival in Guadalajara is matched with a person waiting or calling you to check on your status. They are prompt to drive you to the nearby office where the cars are waiting. You get what you order online and are not hassled for additional things that other big named agencies would say are required. Getting in and out is very easy and have not had any problems the last three rentals that lasted weeks.

Ing. Luis Gilberto López D.

Made reservation over the net, decided to rent car for longer period than anticipated.

Excellent customer service and best pricing I could find near Guadalajara's international airport.

Ask for David or José Luis, they will take care of your car rental needs.
