Colonial and silver towns: Visit Patzcuaro and Lake Janitzio

Visit Us

Visit Patzcuaro and Lake Janitzio

Take a rewarding day trip to the highland town of Pátzcuaro, the spiritual home of Mexico's famous Day of the Dead celebrations. This is a picturesque and charming place of red-tiled houses with ochre shutters, arranged around leafy plazas and overlooked by undulating hills.

After a guided tour of the charming historic centre, take a small boat to the traditional fishing community of Janitzio island to experience village life.

From November, it's also possible to take a trip to witness the natural marvel of the Monarch butterfly migration as they arrive in their millions following an incredible 7,000km journey from the United States.
