Rudy etches a vivid portrait of Guadalajara with its rich history, vibrant culture and passionate artists. Next, it is an easy hop to the coast to bask in the traditional charms of Puerto Vallarta. Rudy visits Mexico City, the world's largest metropolis and explores its ancient roots at pre-Aztec Teotihuacan. For contemporary excitement, Rudy hangs at the Zocalo, the world's second largest square, and heads for the beaches of Mexican Riviera.
Two half-hour shows featuring:
Guadalajara & Puerto Vallarta, Mexico: Guadalajara is alive with the music of mariachis, flowers, colonial architecture, and passionate artists. Rudy explores the rich history and culture of “The Most Mexican of Cities.” Art and artists are an important part of Guadalajara and Rudy takes it all in from the papier-mâché piñatas to the dramatic murals of Orozco. Rudy tours a tequila factory, learns about margaritas and samples the best of traditional Mexican cooking. Then it’s an easy hop to the coast where Puerto Vallarta’s traditional charm still survives next to its new resorts.
Mexico City & Ixtapa, Mexico: Mexico City, the world’s largest metropolis, is modern, crowded, cosmopolitan, and steeped in tradition. Rudy begins with Mexico’s ancient roots just outside the city at pre-Aztec Teotihuacán. The superb National Museum of Anthropology provides more insights into ancient Mexico. For modern day excitement, we hang out at the Zocolo, the world’s second largest square and the center of national life since the Aztec era. Finally we head beach-ward to the resorts of Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo on the Mexican Riviera.
