The most important rivers in Jalisco include the Lerma­Santiago river. It begins in Mexico State and runs into Lake Chapala. Lake Chapala is actually the largest river in Mexico.

Foods of Jalisco

One of the things that Mexico is known for is having the best foods. Jalisco has many traditional foods. Some of them are birria, capirotada, pacholas, carne guisada, empanadas de camaron, enchiladas rojas, pozole, tamales, tortas ahogadas, etc. Most of these foods are familiar to me because they some are also traditional in the part of mexico from where my family is from.

Sangrita is one of the non­alcoholic drinks that is popular in Jalisco as well. Jalisco: Sports and Activities

Estudiantes have won a single championship back in 1994 when they defeated Santos. The Chivas’s home stadium is the Estadio Omnilife stadium which is located in Zapopan. The Atlas’s home stadium is named Estado Jalisco in Guadalajara. The Tecos’s home stadium was the Estadio Tres de Marzo located in Zapopan as well.
