Guadalajara (/ˌɡwɑːdələˈhɑːrə/, Spanish: [ɡwaðalaˈxaɾa] (listen)) is the capital and largest city of the Mexican state of Jalisco, and the seat of the municipality of Guadalajara. The city is in the central region of Jalisco in the Western-Pacific area of Mexico. With a population of 1,460,148 inhabitants, it is Mexico's second most populous municipality. The Guadalajara metropolitan area has a reported population of 5,002,466 inhabitants, making it the second most populous metropolitan area in Mexico, behind Mexico City. The municipality is the second most densely populated in Mexico, the first being Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl in the State of Mexico. It is a strong business and economic center in the Bajío region. Guadalajara is the tenth-largest Latin American city in population, urban area and gross domestic product. The city's economy is based on services and industry, especially information technology, with many international firms having regional offices and manufacturing facilities in the Guadalajara Metropolitan Area, and several domestic IT companies headquartered in the city. Other, more traditional industries, such as shoes, textiles and food processing are also important contributing factors. Guadalajara is a major Mexican cultural center, as it is considered by most to be the home of the famous mariachi genre of music, and plays host to a number of large-scale cultural events such as the Guadalajara International Film Festival, the Guadalajara International Book Fair, and other globally renowned cultural events which draw international crowds. It is home to C.D. Guadalajara, one of the most popular football clubs in Mexico. This city was named the American Capital of Culture for 2005, and hosted the 2011 Pan American Games.
