I'm considering this place because according to wikipedia:
An alternative to the Los Altos region would be the large metropolitan city of Guadalajara located a little west of Los Altos. I'm leaning towards the Los Altos region over Guadalajara though because I assume Los Altos is less mixed with natives, has less tourists and is less materialistic.The Los Altos region is known as the most European influenced region in all of Mexico. It is estimated that the majority of the population there is of 80-90 percent European. With backgrounds consisting mainly of Spanish, French, Italian, German, Basque, and others.
A downside with Los Altos is that it has low population density. The biggest town is "Lagos de Moreno" with a population of 153,817 vs Guadalajara's 1,495,189. So if I went to Los Altos I would need to divide my time over many small towns instead of one city.
Has anyone been to Los Altos? Are any towns better than others?
