Rural scenery near Pátzcuaro, Michoacán, México
< Lago Zirahuen >
Deeper, bluer, and less contaminated than better-known Lago Pátzcuaro, Lago Zirahúen is worth a visit for those in search of beauty and tranquility.
< Rancho La Mesa >
High above Pátzcuaro, el Rancho La Mesa offers dining in a relaxed, country atmosphere, with a beautiful view of the town and of Lake Pátzcuaro beyond. They also rent "villas", cabins in a traditional style of regional architecture.
Ostriches are raised and the meat is served as one of the restaurant's specialties.
As we have never eaten more than guacamole and tortilla chips and beers there, we don't have any opinions as to the food and service.
< El Mercado de Pátzcuaro >
The market in Pátzcuaro is a place of commerce, color, food, social interaction and life.
I love to visit there, although it can be tiring.
< Los Panes Mexicanos y Michoacanos >
There is a rich variety of breads made in Mexico, and sold at a very low price. The breads of the Pátzcuaro, Michoacán region are especially fascinating in their designs. There are more designs available than there are distinctive doughs, but this is true in other countries as well.
At this time I have no idea of how many panaderías there are in and around Pátzcuaro.
< Tortillerías >
A few photos of tortilla making and the resultant product.
< Street Food >
Some of the best food in Mexico is found at street stalls; the food is fresh, hot and the price is right. But care is advised in choosing where to eat.
For the sake of organization, I am including foods from mercado comedores, taquerías, birrerías and the like, although strictly speaking, they are inside, not on the street.

It was colorful, educational, vibrant and delicious.
