Welcome to Tlaquepaque, Mexico’s arts and crafts capital!

Charming Tlqauepaque is part of the Guadalajara metropolitan area and lies adjacent to the south side of the city. It's hard to imagine a better place to unwind and relax especially if you are trying to escape Canadian or European winter. Colourful buildings and palm trees are a true eye candy and immersing yourself in a relaxed, slow-paced life makes you feel good every single day. 

Quinta Don Jose Boutique Hotel is a great starting point to explore not only Tlaquepaque, but Guadalajara as well! This gorgeous family-run property features elegant rooms, suites, and offsite villas, outdoor swimming pool and a tropical garden.

SUITE LIVING

Spacious Room 15 (poolside suite) is probably one of the most unique and beautiful places I have stayed so far. Traditional Mexican design combined with all modern amenities, colourful sculptures, and the most glamorous shower room ever!

This quiet suite features a comfortable king-size bed, a wooden wardrobe, a separate sitting area, and a large desk where you can comfortably catch up with all your emails as the internet connection here is really fast.

A giant naturally-lit shower with stunning design elements (walls, mirror, chandelier) is definitely one of the highlights of the suite. At night, there are several lighting options and a selection of ferns and palm plants gives it a pleasant, tropical atmosphere.

DINING IN STYLE

TlaquePasta Restaurant is a must-try experience whether you are staying at the hotel or not. A mouth-watering menu combining Mexican and Italian cuisine will satisfy even the most demanding tastes.

The restaurant features traditional design, a lot of wooden elements, and beautiful Mexican art. There is live music every night from 8pm to 10pm and QDJ Tequila Bar (open until 11pm).

For reservations, please call: (33) 3657-2483 or email: reserve@tlaquepasta.com.


It is also worth mentioning that both breakfast and coffee served at the hotel are beyond delicious!

"Tlaquepaque is known for its mariachi bands. During the annual San Pedro festivities, El Jardín is filled with stalls and street sellers. On the day of San Pedro itself, towering firework-festooned structures known as the Castillo ("castle") and Toro ("bull") are set alight.

Tlaquepaque is also known for its famous tepache, a partially fermented drink made with pineapple, brown sugar and water." - Wikipedia
