Semi magicDecember 11, 2019 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C
Our route today passed two "pueblos magicos" again. After a lot of climbing on the highway in the morning, we arrived at the first one: Patzcuaro. The town is so beautiful! Most of the houses are painted in white and brown as it's supposed to be in a pueblo magico. The main plaza was full of huge puppets, already arranged for Christmas. Plus, there were lots of markets and great food (especially fresh warm bread). The town is also located at a lake. In the middle of the lake, there's an inhabited island, Janitzio, with a Christ statue on top of the hill. We got a pretty nice view in the morning when it was still in clouds. There's boat rides to the island, but we decided to spent an extended lunch break in town to observe people and enjoy the atmosphere.
In the afternoon, we continued our journey to Tzintzuntzan, the second pueblo magico for today. The ride was pleasant, a little rolling along the lake through some villages and no traffic. The village itself wasn't too impressive except for its local crafts. At least it's quiet and cool, so we should be able to get a good night's sleep 😉Read more
