Guadalajara

We are so excited that you are exploring the possibility of traveling to Guadalajara. At Globalcare we put together this one pager to prepare you for your visit!

Getting there

Guadalajara boasts a highly accessible international airport with around 3,200 weekly flights. If a direct flight isn't available, most U.S. airlines offer connections from major hubs like Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Houston, Dallas, and Atlanta.

Arrival into the city

You will arrive at Guadalajara's international airport and go through immigration upon arrival. The Transportation Authority in Mexico speaks English. So, if questioned, confidently mention visiting the city for dental treatment.

If you check your luggage, you'll collect it after passing through immigration. Once you have all your bags, proceed to customs. You'll fill out a simple form and hand it to the customs officials. Most airports in Mexico use a semaphore system where you'll press a button: red for a further check or green to proceed to the exit.

If you've chosen our transportation services, your driver will wait for you outside customs to take you to your hotel.

If you still need to arrange our transportation, book a taxi at the airport's official taxi stand or use your preferred ride-share partner. You'll join a queue and wait for a taxi to take you to your hotel. Alternatively, you can take advantage our our globalcare transfer service!

Accommodations

Globalcare has partnered with select hotel chains and specific locations to ensure that your accommodations meet your expectations. Regardless of your choice, please ensure everything in your room functions appropriately upon arrival. If you run into any issues that affect your comfort, Globalcare will attend to them.
