Gateway to the the state of Michoacan
Casa Santiago is located across the lake from Patzcuaro between the villages of Ihuatzio and Cucuchucho. A 30 minute drive will take you through Tzintzuntzan and its world class craftspeople to visit the home and studio of Mexican artist Juan Torres in the pottery village of Capula.
The capital of Michoacan, Morelia, is only 45 minutes away as is the internationally famous town of Santa Clara del Cobre renowned for its copper work.
A 3 1/2 hour drive will get you to the Monarch Butterfly Reserve in the north of the state, or to the more remote indigenous villages of Ocumicho, Cocucho, Patamban, etc.
With a rich variety of fruits and vegetables, Casa Santiago is near the center of avocado growing region. The local markets and roadside stands are filled each day with freshly picked produce. Just wash and enjoy.
Kevin and Arminda share a wealth of knowledge of the Lake Patzcuaro region as well as the entire state of Michoachan. They can plan very informative and inspiring guided day tours, local or further afield. You may have to book ahead as they are in demand for their expertise and local knowledge of the indigenous culture, crafts, and people. Cost is dependant upon the itinerary of each trip.
There are many beautiful walks right out the door.
