Tlaquepaque: Arts and crafts enclave is fantastical and colourful

Strolling the boutique-lined streets of Tlaquepaque, this arts-and-crafts enclave near Guadalajara, Mexico, is like stepping into the brightly coloured pages of a storybook.

Above, rainbow-coloured bunting flaps beneath an often cerulean sky. Fantastical sculptures on the sidewalks cast stark shadows on the vivid yellow, white and terra cotta walls of the stucco buildings.

Even the name has an engaging rhythm – tuh-lah-keh-pah-keh.

And the best part is this fairy tale visit to Tlaquepaque’s historic centre includes tacos.

This wonderful gem is featured in the National Post. Read the full article here.
