I think Patzcuaro is one of my favorite towns in Mexico. The nearby lake is huge and has an island in the middle called, Janitzio, that is absolutely amazing. Patzcuaro is so clean and quaint that I wish we could have stayed a week longer....More
There are many small villages around the lake that are worth stopping in. It is best if you hire a local taxi driver who knows the area. The convento at Tzintzuntzan and Nico’s studio and craft market, Santa Fe de La Laguna and the church...More
