Guadalajara quick break in March

Looking to do quick trip somewhere new in Mexico. Have previously been to Mexico City, Puebla, San Miguel and Guanajuato. Considering a trip for 4 days, 5 nights in Guadalajara at the end of March. How does it compare to Mexico City? Am thinking with 4 days, we should spend 2 days exploring the city, 1 day trip to Tequila and and 1 day trip to Tlaquepaque..staying in a central hotel in Guadalajara the entire time. How does this sound? Also, is it typically sunny and warm here late March?

I don't think it compares at all to Mexico City, nor was I a big fan. IMO, a more interesting alternative for a 4-5 day trip would be Morelia/Patzcuaro/Uruapan. But that's just me.

I changed planes in Guadalajara in February and the air quality was awful, in case that's important to you. If so do check. You might consider Oaxaca instead, sunny and warm in March, though check that too, maybe too warm. February was perfect for me, March is warmer.

Not my favorite city but well worth a visit IMO. Mexico' second largest city has lots to offer including a excellent main plaza especially on Sunday, a wonderful Ballet & excellent restaurants including our favorite "Sacromonte" that specializes in Pork dishes.
Been about 6 times back to 1986 including our "Luna de Miel"at the Quinto Real in 1997, a most special hotel. Near by is a large leather mall second only to the huge one in Leon.Other great shopping in the area.
Good Museums, a nice zoo and a number of other attractions worth a visit.A decent hotel steps from the main square is the Mendoza some what cheaper than the Real. Interesting history & sights with decent guides available through both of the hotel I mentioned,
