Reviews of Patzcuaro

A mountain lake that is a tourist magnet and a very pretty village of the same name with colonial architecture in the state of Michoacan.

My suggestion:
Its extremely crowded during the festival of the day of the dead, so if you are thinking about going then make sure you reserve your hotel in advance!
My review
Lake Patzcuaro is one of the most popular tourist visits in Michoacan state. And for good reason, as the town of Patzcuaro is really cute and definitely the place where you are likely to buy some of the most beautiful souvenirs of your trip to Mexico (whether in its pretty boutiques or in the colourful markets at the end of the week).
