  • True to it's description, great location!

    "My wife and I came to Patzcuaro for the dia de los Muertos celebration in early Nov. 2014. Pedro's property was in a great location. Up a hill and down a hill and you were in the historic centro. Restaurants abound, street food available, and a community of gentle people, with amazing arts and crafts for sale. Let's not forget the amazing architecture of a 500 year old village. The property is clean, private, and well taken care of. Pedro has a property manager Liseth who was helpful with getting us nested in. Pedro himself was incredibly helpful via phone and making sure his staff assisted us with any needs or concerns. This alone is why I gave his property 5 stars. He was there for us. The area of Patzcuaro has so much to see. Artisan villages around the area, combined with a lot of natural beauty in the mountain countryside. This area is a safe haven, never once did we feel the opposite. I encourage you to consider renting either property. Casa Grande, or Chica. Each have their own benefits; we did spend time in both units. I found Casa Chica quieter from road noise, being further off the street in the property. But, Casa Grande is more spacious, beautiful kitchen, great original art. Beds in either Casa were comfortable. This is the second time I have used HomeAway as a resource for vacation rentals and I was not disappointed. I will continue to use this avenue over hotels as you get the feeling of being at home instead of living out of a suitcase in a hotel. Thanks again to Pedro and his staff who helped us have a great vacation in this wonderful area of Mexico. Mark Hofmann"

  • Very Peaceful

    "This home is in a very peaceful location, and the neighborhood is lovely! The home is the perfect description of relaxation. My only issue was (and my own fault) I didn't realize that there was no television. Overall, it was a great place to stay! The owners were very nice and easy to work with, thanks Gab and Denise!bclz"

  • Great view, great location, great hosts!

    "We wanted to spend time in Michoacan for Semana Santa and decided to try staying near beautiful Lake Zirahuen. The casa was perfect for us and we really enjoyed the indoor and outdoor spaces, as did our little dog. Ale and Enrique are caring and helpful hosts. We loved the well-stocked kitchen with lots of sunlight to greet us in the morning as we enjoyed our breakfast while gazing at the placid waters of the lake. The weather was perfect and our excursions to nearby towns were fun to photograph. We bought beautiful handcrafted pottery, wood and stone carvings, copper and Catrinas to add to our casa here in Mexico. A favorite destination nearby was Tzintzuntzan -- we loved this Pueblo Magico. Really enjoyed our time in the area and will make El Alto Lucero a regular getaway vacation home."

Michoacan de Ocampo Travel Tips

Seasons to Visit Michoacan de Ocampo Vacation Rentals

Located on the Mexican Riviera, Michoacan benefits from year-round warm temperatures. The best season to visit though will depend largely on your interest. Each year between the months of October and April, millions of Monarch butterflies travel south to Mexico from North America. They come to spend the winter months in the warm climate of the Oyamel Forests. The local communities together with government have set up several butterfly sanctuaries. If you have an interest in nature and particularly butterflies, this is the season that you should visit Michoacan. The summer months attract surfers and sun-lovers to the beautiful beaches. This is also a great time of year to explore the mountain and forests trails in the region. If your interests are focused on culture and history, you can travel any time of year. In summer and spring, there are several festivals that are worth seeing.

Getting to Michoacan de Ocampo Vacation Houses

In the region of Michoacan, the main city is Morelia. The General Francisco Mujica International Airport is located just outside of Morelia. It is the major hub for the region for flights from North America and other parts of Mexico. The airport hosts several airlines from North, South and Central America. Direct flights operate to Mexico City or several major airport hubs in the southern states of the U.S. If there are no direct flights from your hometown, you can route via one of these hubs as an alternative.

Attractions near Michoacan de Ocampo Condos

There are several sub-regions in Michoacan, each with its own unique attractions. Morelia has a historic center that is filled with beautiful old buildings and monuments. The most striking building is the cathedral which is built from pink stone and approximately 400 years old. Take your time to meander through the streets and learn about the history and culture of the city by visiting the many museums. The coastline from Morelia stretches for almost 390 kilometers. It is characterized by sandy white beaches and excellent surfing.

Patzcuaro is an interesting cultural area. Here, there are many archeological sites, traditional craft centers and historical monuments. This is a place where you can get a truly authentic experience of local Mexican culture. Browse the markets and craft stalls and bargain for some colorful handcrafted souvenirs.

The Paricutin volcano is one of the youngest in the world. It was formed by an eruption in 1943. Considered by many as one of the natural wonders of the world, it rises up between the two towns of Angahuan and San Juan Parangaricutiro.

The Michoacan countryside is very scenic. The mountains and forest areas are inhabited by a diverse range of wildlife. Guided trekking and hiking tours can be arranged. Alternatively, you can arrange an overland tour to take you to both the cultural and natural sites. See 200-meter waterfalls and watch colorful birds flit around in the forests.

Beautiful Mexican Riviera Vacation Rentals

Many of the vacation homes in Michoacan are located along the Mexican Riviera. Imagine a home set among lush vegetation on a secluded beach. Enjoy a backdrop of towering mountains and in front of you, the Pacific Ocean reaches to the horizon. It’s the perfect place to relax, enjoy nature and soak up the sun. Many of the villas have private swimming pools, outdoor decks and barbecue areas. The homes are fully furnished and living areas are spacious. Choose from multiple bedroom homes and smaller cozy condos; your choice simply depends on the size of your traveling party. Beautifully equipped kitchens make you feel right at home.
