The city is an important producer of red fruits, such as blueberries, strawberries or raspberries, but in addition to being known for this, it has important tourist attractions that you certainly cannot miss if you finally decide to visit it.
First of all, we recommend a religious route through the Calvario Cathedral or the Temple of San Francisco, among many other buildings of impressive architecture. Afterwards you can do some shopping in the Morelos Market, but not before having visited some museums such as the one of the City of Zamora, where you can discover the ancient history.
Capital of Michoacán
In the capital of Michoacán, Morelia, you will find a lot of things to do, getaways, plans of any kind, all for you to spend the best days you can imagine. Only in the historic center there are historical monuments, cultural and religious buildings…
The aqueduct is also one of the most important constructions, both for its antiquity and the importance it had for the development of the city. We recommend hiring private guides to show you around and explain all the nooks and crannies of this city as well as tours that take you to the main points of interest if you don’t have much time to investigate on your own.
Lázaro Cárdenas, Michoacán
One of the most visited municipalities in the state of Michoacán, along with Morelia and many others, could be Lázaro Cárdenas. One of the most important points that exist in it is the Port of Lazaro de Cardenas, considered the 5th most important commercial port of the Mexican country.
If you decide to travel to Lázaro Cárdenas, you cannot miss Caleta de Campos or Maruata Bay, where there are small islands of white sand beaches perfect for sunbathing, swimming and resting. For those who not only want to sunbathe but also want to know the depths of the sea, there are nearby reefs to dive.
Monarch Butterfly in Michoacán
Monarch butterflies are beautiful and very characteristic orange and black insects that can be observed in the state of Michoacán, specifically in the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve. There are sanctuaries where the environment is cared for, the monarch butterflies are protected, and the sanctuaries are also spaces for the curious to take a look.
The key months for butterflies are: November, when they travel to hibernate; the months between December and January are decisive due to the low temperatures and because they gather in clusters to protect themselves from the cold. Then, from February to March, are the months of reproduction and where we see more movement of butterflies.
If you really feel like visiting and getting close to this wonderful animal, there are several of these sanctuaries located in Michoacán, take note: Ejido El Rosario, Ejido Cerro Pierto or Ejido Senguio are the perfect places for you to discover.
