That is why we want to present you some of the Magic Towns that are characterized by being a space of tranquility and that you can take advantage of when taking the flights to Guadalajara to know them, since they are less than 3 hours from the capital of Jalisco.
South of Guadalajara, surrounding Lake Chapala, are the forests of the Sierra del Tigre, here among pines and oaks is the Magical Town of Mazamitla, which you will reach in only two hours by car. Nothing better to escape from the city than to surround yourself in the tranquility and beauty of the forest. In Mazamitla, you can enjoy a mountain environment, since it is at 2500 meters of altitude, the town was built around the Parish of San Cristóbal and is very nice to walk through its cobbled streets and houses with roofs of tiles, the surroundings of the town are hills covered by forests where you will find wooden cabins. Don´t forget to visit its streams and waterfalls, among which El Salto stands out, where it is even possible to swim, or in the Tierra Aventura Ecological Park where several extreme activities are carried out.
The Magical Town of Comala is in the state of Colima, just two and a half hours from Guadalajara, passing by the majestic Colima Volcano. Its name means place of comales in Náhuatl language, this is a town where history, culture, gastronomy and nature are combined. Called the White Town due to the color of its houses, Comala is a cheerful town where beautiful handicrafts and furniture are made in mahogany, masks for traditional dances and of course, metal comales. Its main square is full of vegetation and has a picturesque kiosk where you can enjoy the good weather.
One theory says that Tapalpa means high ground in Otomi, name that makes sense because the town is more than 2 thousand meters above sea level; the town is in the southern highlands of Jalisco and due to its proximity to Guadalajara is possible to reach the region in less than two hours. The place offers a perfect opportunity to relax in the middle of a picturesque village and surrounded by nature. The town is famous for its fountains in which residents supply water and which function as meeting points, each one is decorated with different motives from which its name derives, such as the Dog and the Snakes. Walk through its cobblestone streets, among white houses and visit the beautiful Parish of San Antonio with its beautiful esplanade.
The city of Guadalajara is surrounded by truly symbolic villages, which today still keep many of their traditions and coexist in a special way with their natural surroundings, so we recommend that when you take one of the flights to Guadalajara don´t hesitate to visit any from them.
