My first tip is: you should go early morning to avoid crowds. This Cathedral has a enormous tradition and is visitied by people across the country and those who lives overseas as US.

A must see in San Juan de Los Lagos. This cathedral was built in the 1760's by the Jesuite order. Thousands of peregrines visit Our Lady of San Juan yearly to take their offerings.

There are plenty to chose from, from hostels to three plus stars ones. Most are located around the main plaza and within walking distance to the historic area. Only challenge is the parking so if you are driving there make... More
