Sail to Janitzio Island

Janitzio (Isla Janitzio)

From $600 MXN

Legends and joy of the purepechan town revolve around the Patzcuaro lake. We begin in Quiroga, to take a walk in the isles of its big market of crafts, and to confirm, restaurant by restaurant, why this place is the capital of the famous carnitas.

We will travel in time to the capital of the Purepechan empire (nowadays Tzintzumtzan) with its big cloisters and the Yacatas, a privilege archaeological lift that allows the contemplation of the lacustrine area.

Do you feel like going to sail? Let’s do it to the most traditional island in Mexico, Janitzio. You will find local fishers showing off its traditional nets to welcome you. If you happen to visit on Day of the Dead, you will not believe the scenery, full of candles and flowers so souls from beyond can come back for a night. These traditions are kept alive thanks to the dwellers.

Then, we will arrive to Patzcuaro, the heart of the utopia envisioned by Don Vasco. Its streets do not lie, they are the representation of a humble and avid learning world. Beyond the red tiles and the folklore of its spaces, you can find traditions that taste to pasta ice cream under the main gates of the Quiroga square; multi-colored threads and gold leaves in the Once Patios, a former convent turned artisanal center; and resistance and respect in the Interpretation Center of Don Casco.

We will come back to Morelia, with new airs of an amazing everlasting age.
