For the seasoned traveler familiar with the disappointments of U.S. “chain hotels”, Garden Designer Robert Clark’s inspired and hand wrought oasis in the heart of historic, colonial Guadalajara is a necessary experience.

Located right in downtown Guadalajara, this is the creation of the well-known garden designer Bob Clark. As you might imagine, the grounds are fantastic. And I mean that in every sense of the word. I have...
