Morelia

Morelia, just 32 miles (52 km) from Patzcuaro, is one of Mexico's gems. We like to spend the night at a hotel in town so we can enjoy the evening in the city.

The Fuente las Tarascas is one of Morelia's Signature Sights

New Patzcuaro Campground

Patzcuaro has a new campggorund called Rancho La Mesa RV Park. It is situated on the crest of a hill overlooking Patzcuaro, Lake Patzcuaro, and Janitzio.

The campground was developed with the assistance of a caravan company, Caravans Soleil, and many of their caravans spend a considerable amount of time at the campground.

When we visited we were invited to spend an evening in the campground restaurant as guests of the owners and Caravans Soleil. The caravan leader, our old friend Yves Cuerrier, was our host. Seems like we meet him everywhere we go in Mexico. He speaks fluent English, French, and Spanish; and is without a doubt the most experienced caravan leader currently active in Mexico. During the evening we were treated to one of the most impressive floor shows we've ever seen in Mexico.

For more about this campground see Traveler's Guide to Mexican Camping, 4th Edition and the related updates on this site.
