|About these ratings|
When you need a break from the trails, swap out those hiking boots for something more fetching and head to the Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village. Perched at the intersection of routes 89A and 179, this sizable outdoor shopping center was designed in the style of a traditional Mexican village. The stucco walls house a variety of art galleries, New Age shops and restaurants, while the cobblestone streets and mosaic fountains provide a charming, old-fashioned atmosphere.
Many travelers highly recommend spending a few hours perusing Tlaquepaque (pronounced Tel-AH-ki-PAH-ki) and checking out the local handmade jewelry, food, music and especially the art. "Shopping is not an activity I enjoy at home or on vacation. So imagine my surprise how much I enjoyed wandering around this special shopping plaza, in the true definition of a plaza, like a square in a European city," said one TripAdvisor reviewer. "Would love to return to wander more leisurely and enjoy the art as well as one of the restaurants."
Tlaquepaque's shops and galleries are open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., although restaurants maintain different hours. For more information, visit the Tlaquepaque website.
