Right in the heart of Pátzcuaro is this place where you can see the typical dance of "the aged ones" or "Los viejitos", eating a delicious ice cream of a variety of flavors.

Don't be shy - savor the ice creams from the stands on the arcade. Lovely spot to stroll and people watch.

This is a very large square with a parquet and fountains, surrounded by uniformly old buildings with shops and restaurants. A great place to have lunch and see people strolling by.

This plaza initially looks like many others in many other Mexican towns, BUT, in fact, there is a lot to see and take in. The square itself is lovely, busy and seems to defy or go against traditional settings. What one thinks is the church...More

Si, es una carretera muy buena, como recomendacion para que te sientas mas seguro, trata de viajar con luz de dia, pero nosotros no tuvimos ningun problema y disfrutamos mucho del viaje. Ademas es un trayecto corto.
