What you can Discover by foot
A 10 minute walk will bring you to the village where Arminda was born, Ihuatzio (in Purepecha, 'place of the coyote'). The 16th century church is beautifully decorated. 15 minutes outside the village on a plateau overlooking the lake are the YACATAS, flat top pyramids built in 1200 ad.

What you can Discover by Mini-bus
Every 10 minutes a van passes the Casa on its way to Pátzcuaro or Tzintzuntzan. In Pátzcuaro you will want to visit the regional museum, the market, or see the famous mural in the library painted by Juan O'Gorman. There are also YACATAS (pyramids) in Tzintzuntzan as well as the oldest olive trees in the Americas planted in the courtyard of the church. Also at the church you will find the miraculous 'Santo Entierro' in its glass coffin. Additionally, Tocuaro, with its internationally famous mask and wood carvers and Erongaricuaro with silver jewelry and highly decorated furniture are accessible by public transport from Pátzcuaro.

What you can Discover with Kevin or Arminda as your guide
Both Kevin and Arminda are listed in Frommers and Lonely Planet as experts in the crafts of this area. they both have years of experience taking buyers and individuals to see the best copper work in Santa Clara; ceramics and pasta de caña in Tzintzuntzan and catrinas in Capula. They regularly lead individuals or groups to Patamban, Ocumicho, Cocucho and the other more remote indigenous villages.
