    Morelia Restaurants

    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...

  • A marvelous natural spectacle

    Angangueo Things to Do

    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...

  • waterfall

    Nexpa Off The Beaten Path

    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...

  • Drink tequila and beer?

    Nexpa Things to Do

    If you're not surfing, eating, sleeping or taking in the natural beauty, you're drinking. That's just the way it rolls here.

    Nexpa Nightlife

    This is a very small, transient community, so one of the best things to do at night is have a bonfire and listen to music! Get to know the locals. They'll share their tequila with you (hint hint).
