Then we will give those last quick travel tips and that will be the end of it. We know your time is precious, but we will get you a good game plan and on your way quickly.

Currently some of the best nightclubs and singles bars to pick up Guadalajara girls are:
- Bar Americas at Av Chapultepec Sur 507, Americana
- Lola Lolita at Av Ignacio L. Vallarta 1110
- La Santa at Real de Acueducto 371, Puerta de Hierro
- Callejón de los Rumberos at Av Chapultepec Sur 287

Safety will always be a priority throughout this post, when talking about the best areas for singles nightlife there are a few to choose from. Zapopan would be the trendy and upscale nightlife district, if you can afford it we highly suggest you stay there for a few reasons.
One, it is always a good idea to be as close to the area where you meet a girl as possible if you hope to hook up right then. Two, many of the best spots for a Guadalajara date night are right there, again making a smooth transition back to your place.
Third, safety is critical and staying in a nice area will really minimize your risk of ruin. It isn’t the cheapest area to stay but if you look online you can usually find some good deals.
The Chapultepec bar strip would also be a solid option if you hope to get laid. This will have you walking distance to many different venues. The third area of town with more nightlife would be in Centro. Don’t expect to find Mexico City level singles nightlife here, but it is solid enough.
Meet Guadalajara Girls During The Day
Once again Zapopan will probably be the best area to meet Guadalajara girls during the day. Any time you are in a city that isn’t known to be all that safe you are going to have a tough time approaching women on the street.
In Zapopan they will probably feel more at ease and if a gringo walks up to them they might be willing to stop for a chat. Hopefully you know some Spanish though, most girls in this city won’t speak much English and day game is all about having a conversation.
You could also visit malls and shopping districts to meet women like:
- Forum Tlaquepaque
- Andares Centro Commercial
- Centro Magno
- Plaza Pabellón
- El Parian
- Galeria del Calzado
Guys that thrive with daygame should head over to Leon which is known for great shopping areas that women from all around the region flock to.
Chat With Girls Online
Some guys may be interested in going out to party here, others may think that the risks aren’t worth the rewards. If you head to the bar districts we mentioned before you will probably be pretty safe, but any time you are out late into the night you are increasing your chances of something going wrong.
You may be better off meeting single girls in Guadalajara online, and a great dating site for that is Mexican Cupid. It is the most used dating site in the county and many women sign up because they want to date or hook up with foreign men and aren’t sure how else to meet them.
If you are a local guy don’t worry, you can have great success on it also. Online dating will allow you to meet women near you quicker and do it from the comfort and safety of your home or hotel room.
Plus if you are traveling through town it will help you set up date nights while you plan your trip. Mexican Cupid is a great resource that any single guy should be looking into whether he wants to get laid or start something more serious.
Guadalajara Dating Guide
The above sections had all the info you needed to meet single girls near you and now our Guadalajara dating guide can try to take you the rest of the way. Plan out your date night right and it will hopefully end with a bang.
Many of the top spots we are about to list are also in the Zapopan, Chapultepec, or Centro areas that we have been talking about throughout the post. You won’t need to travel far to find a good place to go if you plan wisely.

Day Date Ideas
We always suggest that you try to enjoy some nice weather if you are going to meet up with a girl during the day. The sun and fresh air will help to put her in a good mood so visit parks and outdoor areas like:
- Los Colomos
- Agua Azul
- Plaza Tapatia
This city also has a really nice zoo which can be a great way to spend the afternoon. For those looking for adventure on your date during the day check out Mantis Climbing, or you may also enjoy visiting the Casa Herradura Distillery on the Tequila Express.
For something more adult check out landmarks and museums such as:
- Institut Cultural Cabanas
- Rotunda of the Illustrious Jaliscans
- Guadalajara Cathedral
- Museum of Arts
- Regional Museum
- Museo de la Ciudad
Puerto Vallarta isn’t too far away and would make for an awesome weekend trip with the right girl. Or if you have never been to Juarez before it can be a very unique experience, just be careful if you visit.
Tips For Tourists & Expats
Now we have some quick travel tips and dating advice for foreign men visiting Guadalajara. There are plenty of beautiful girls around, but you need to keep your wits about you here.
This may not be one of the more dangerous cities in Mexico, but you still need to be on guard. Try to limit your time walking on the streets, particularly after dark when out in the nightlife.
We have mentioned it many times already but booking a hotel in Zapopan will not only make your date nights easier but it will also help to keep you safer. You can often find some bargains on Agoda.
The local currency is the peso and you get around 19 for every dollar at the time of our last update. When it comes to dating or hooking up with Guadalajara girls there will be some who really like gringos and others that don’t.
If you are in an expat or tourist bar the local women who are there probably want to date or hook up with foreign men. You can also find plenty of that type of girl online.
One thing that can really increase your odds of getting laid would be improving your Spanish before you come.
Enjoy Dating Guadalajara Girls
We may have stressed safety a bit too much here, but it is really the most important thing right? Especially because the safe areas also luckily coincide with the best places to pick up or go on your date nights.
You can kill all those birds with one stone just by planning your trip wisely. Also don’t forget to chat with single women on Mexican Cupid before you arrive so you have dates ready and waiting for your plane to land. Do this properly and your chances of hooking up will skyrocket.
That wraps up our best places to meet girls in Guadalajara with our dating guide, enjoy your time here.
