La Ruta Don Vasco
Lake Patzcuaro Region
Head out today to explore part of La Ruta Don Vasco. This famous historic course starts in the famous Catrina town of Capula, first visiting Juan Torres Studio before exploring the town. Depart for lunch at Chef Diego’s Molcajetes for lunch, and then move on to Santa Fe de Laguna just a few minutes away.
Your guide will then drive along the idyllic Mexican Riviera to the archaeological site of Ihuatzio. From Ihuatzio, visit award winning international embroidery artist Teofila Servin in Sanabria before returning to Morelia for dinner.
El Rosario Reserve, Michoacan
El Rosario Reserve
This morning begins a little earlier than usual, at 7:30 AM. We will have breakfast of fruit salad, granola and yogourt ready for 7 AM. Drive directly to Angangueo and have some snacks in the market before heading into the reserve. You may choose to ride both ways, one way or simply walk. Horseback riding is great for beginners, as there are platforms for easy mounting/dismounting. The reserve is very steep, but the ride is only about 10-15 minutes. We recommend bringing a bandana to tie around your nose and mouth, as the horses kick up extensive dust. Seated at an altitude of 10,000, but the time you climb up through the pine forest, you will be closer to 11,000 feet – so it can be cold and hard to breathe. If you are walking up, you may like to have a walking stick as it is steep and also hard on the knees when you descend.
Visiting the reserve can certainly cause some aches and pains, whether you walk or ride – and there just happens to be a remedy nearby. Return to the parking lot by 1 PM and head to the therapeutic hot springs at Agua Blanca Resort in Jungapeo. If you would like to book spa treatments, please contact us ahead of time so we can make an appointment for you. Departing Jungapeo by 4 PM puts you back in Morelia around 6:45 PM.
