CHOOSE YOUR HOTEL DESTINATION
Please note - it is recommended to choose certain locations over others for specific activities. For example, you can visit Paricutin Volcano from Patzcuaro and Morelia, but it is much closer to Uruapan. If you are coming for a short get-away to visit the Monarch Butterflies, head straight for Morelia.
GEOLOGY * ARCHAEOLOGY * NATURE
Most famed as Mexico's avocado capital and for the annual Domingo de Ramos parade & art market, Uruapan is a charming, authentic city that hasn't been swallowed by tourism. It is also a great hub for those who want to explore some of Michoacan's less frequented sites, such as the instrument town of Paracho, the archaeological site of Tingambato, or the arduous journey to the cone of Paricutin Volcano.
