James Dickinson, 66M. After many years in the Bay Area, I decided to make my intended move to Mexico. GDL with it's high elevation makes it a perfect year round climate to operate my B&B for guests of any orientation that wants to be close to the central core of this large city, without the 24/7 noise that all big cities have. I offer rooms or the whole house for rent. I am enjoying it here more for 6 years now and have made new friends from around the world. This is one of my first moves away from Trip Advisor to let visitors of all lifestyles welcome here. I have several visitors that come over the mountain from Puerto Vallarta to visit the big city. I am enjoying making guests feel at home and get high rating for doing just that..on www.tripadvisor.com, the largest travel site on the web today.

    "Extremely Comfortable Beds"
    I rentd 2 rooms for a friend and myself at the Mercurio. We had a great check in and were taken to our A?C rooms with wonderful beds and tastfully decorated rooms. My room faced the pool below next to the bar and morning breakfast area (included in price). The staff is very friendly, rooms are clean and just an overall great experience to visit the other side f the mountain if only for a few days! Highly recommend

    Best trained staff in Guadalajara!
    California's was just opening when I moved to this city about 4 years ago to open my own business. After many, many visits to this great city and to all of the fun bars...I always eventually return "home" to where peole are made to feel welcome..always. The bartenders and servers are trained very well, more so than any other Gay bar I have been to in the city. That in itself is impressive. It is also the reason that it rarely, if ever has a slow night! It has expanded at least 4 times since it opened. Great job..all of you! James .... The Dickinson Guest House
