That depends on where you’ll be wandering. Downtown Guadalajara, about 11 miles from Guadalajara, Jalisco Airport (GDL-Don Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla Intl.), can be a bit tricky to drive in. Make things easy by opting for something small, fuel-efficient, and a cinch to handle. That being said, Guadalajara is a good base to explore many of the sandy shores in Jalisco. If your journey is more about cruising the wide-open roads, you may want a ride with a little more trunk space and extra legroom. How about a full-size car or a standard SUV?
