I believe you are referring to Andares in Zapopan. (For more on Andares including Map, hours, ect click Andares )
” Andares is a shopping mall located in Zapopan, Mexico in the Guadalajara metropolitan area. This outdoor and indoor shopping center is Guadalajara’s most exclusive shopping mall and is set in Puerta de hierro which is the most exclusive neighborhood in the city. It was opened in November 19, 2008 in a blaze of consumer frenzy that has affected the city in recent years.
The 530 million dollar complex features luxurious world class residencies designed by famous Mexican architect Juan Sordo Madaleno, a luxury Ritz-Carlton hotel and the shopping center complex which features elegant corridors, outdoor restaurants and cafes, anchored by upscale department stores as Liverpool (store) and El Palacio de Hierro in where brands such as Louis Vuitton, Prada, Valentino, Gucci, Oscar de la Renta, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Fendi, Dior, Burberry, Ralph Lauren and most of the high-end fashion boutiques have a "corner shop" available, the corridors and indoor mall features dozens of upmarket clothing stores, including Thomas Pink, BCBG Max Azria, Stuart Weitzman, Façonnable, Marc Jacobs, DKNY, Hugo Boss, Salvatore Ferragamo, Max Mara, Ermenegildo Zegna, Calvin Klein, Lacoste, Swarovski, Diesel, Pal Zileri etc.”
I believe Costco does offer day passes however you cannot make purchases with it. If you want to make a purchase you would have to do one of the following:
1. Buy a membership (it only cost about 400 pesos I believe)
2. Tell a lie at the membership counter and ask them to look up your US membership, when they can find it say there must be some mistake, you are here on vacation and want to make a purchase, what can they do. Speak only English and ask to see the manager if they cannot help you.
3. Get in line and ask the person in front or behind you if you can use their card to make a purchase.
I am not endorsing and of the above methods BUT I have seen ALL of these scenarios in person at the GDL Costco.
