This restaurant is on the upper floor of Panaderia Trico right in the middle of Morelia's World Heritage. The staff was very friendly, the only thing I didn't like that much was, that it was kind of dark, but that's a Morelia-thing I guess, as everywhere I go, the light seems to be dimmed. I had sopa tarasca which was excellent, I suppose this is...more

I hadn't been to this restaurant in many many years, but I was happy to be back as Solar de Villagran used to be my favorite restaurant in Morelia when I was younger.The food they serve here is rather Mexican (but there are several international dishes too), very tasty and comes in BIG portions. I remember my brother and I had to share a dish when...more
On the first tip I offered an insight of the 2 nature reserves in Michoacan where you can see the butterflies. If you rent a car and choose to drive here yourself, be ready for a looong journey and keep in mind that these sanctuaries are located far away from the toll highway (wide green line in the upper part of the map) and you have to drive...more
There are 2 sanctuaries that you can visit in the state of Michoacan -- Angangueo is the closest village to both of them. This is where day-trips from Morelia take you to see the butterflies. I am attaching a map so you can see what the distance (between Morelia & sanctuaries) and the recommended routes are, and my personal opinion about visiting...more
The fisherman supplement their income by taking clients out in their pongas ( boats ) , to local sights of interest, such as The Jacuzzi, which is not a jacuzzi at all , but a nice place to visit . It is a cut between the ocean & the land ,that is protected from the strong surge & waves of the ocean & so it is a popular place to go to observe the...more
We have not stayed in either of these places , but we do know of them & they are a popular destination for surfers. Some of the best surfing in Mexico can be found in both of these places , so we have observed. Both places we know have accomodations for renting a cabin , pitching a tent ,& hanging a hammock . There are also Ramadas whereyou can...more
Pueden ir a escalar este cerro a cualquier estacion del año en tiempo de Julio es imprecionante porque todo esta totalmente verde casi podria parecer la jungla de tan hermoso que es .
For the Mexicans the Day of the Death is one of the most important days of the year. That´s why they decorate their relatives tombs with such care and love, they believe that in that day the souls of the love ones return to earth to be with them to drink, eat and remember the good times. I believe that is a beautiful ritual, very positive and a...more
(1.) horseriding - about 4 hours, you hire 2 horses and one guide.(2. ) seeing the area paved with volcanic ash(3.) visiting a church which was the only building survived from an eruption(4.) most tiring part- climbing the volcano named Paricutin by feet. There are still several smokers smoking surrounding the main volcano.WARNING-- DON'T PAY OVER...more
I went to uruapan on a spur of the moment decision. I was sitting in a cafe in Morelia when I read a concert poster for Lila downs. I had always wanted to see her perform and this was my opportunity. The concert was to be held that very night in Uruapan. I called a friend, who is always up for an adventure and off we went. Taxi to the bus station...more

Ask for the "Iglesia enterrada", whih is not a buried church (literally translated), it is really a sunken church due to the floods. For reaching this site you must walk 1 km from the center of the town, go where the "IMSS Hospital" , there is the entrance to the only unpaved road to the site. Once there you will cross 2 old wodden bridges which are also beautiful.In the photo you will see what it remains from the church,just the tower and some parts of the original floor.
To find this waterfall, ask a local and they will give you directions. It´s only accessible by car (about a ten minute drive), so you will have to hitch a ride if you don´t have one. When you come to Nexpa, you lose all sense of needing to be structured, so hitching a ride seems possible, in fact, the only probable way to get anywhere...and it's...more
