officially Free and Sovereign State of Jalisco (Spanish: Estado Libre y Soberano de Jalisco)


Jalisco is one of the 31 states (32 federal entities including one “federal district”) in west- central Mexico. Its capital and largest city is Guadalajara which is the second biggest metropolitan area in Mexico.
Jalisco has the third highest economy in Mexico and is valued for its national resources and history. Guadalajara is seen as the center of Mexican culture and considered by most to be the home of mariachi music. Many other aspects of Mexican culture are said to have originated from Jalisco such as ranchera music, tequila, jaripeo and our original Birria recipe!
