Pátzcuaro

We stayed in the Villa Patzcuaro while visiting Patzcuaro. The campground was in excellent shape. There was good Wi-fi, included in the campground fee, and a new Bodega Aurrera just up the road.

Brick-making at Villa Pátzcuaro

While staying at Villa Pátzcuaro we were fascinated by a quiet manufacturing process taking place just outside our RV door.

Much of Pátzcuaro is constructed of adobe bricks, here's how they're made.

The dump truck use to haul the bricks away is the only mechanized equipment used in the whole process.

 

Boat Trip to Janitzio

One of the highlights of a visit to Pátzcuaro is a boat trip out to the island of Janitzio.
