1. Take the Chapala Plus direct bus from Ajijic or Chapala.
There are a couple different classes and routes that the buses take to Guadalajara, so to ensure you’re on the right one it’s probably best to board at the station in Ajijic or Chapala, instead of one of the many stops along the highway.
From Ajijic, the quickest route is the direct first-class bus which bypasses Chapala and heads to Guadalajara via the libramiento. It takes about an hour to reach the “old” bus station there, called the central vieja.
2. Take a taxi or get an uber to the Pantéon de Belén
Once you’re at the old bus station in Guadalajara, get a taxi from one of the taxi stands on the north or south sides of the station. Here is the north side:
Then tell your driver you want to go to the Panteón de Belén (Pan-teeh-ON de Beeh-LEN). It’s about a 15-20 minute ride on a day without traffic.
The outside of the building is a long, red wall and half-way down you’ll find the entryway:
Tues-Sat: 10:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m.
Thurs, Fri, Sat: Nighttime tours also available at 8:30 p.m., 10:00 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.Last updated July 22, 2018
