Anytime is a good time to visit El Gran Hotel but one of the best times to visit is late October – early November during the Day of the Dead Celebrations. Patzcuaro’s markets overflow with vibrant flowers, handmade candles and sugar skulls. Take a short boat to the cemetery on Janitzio Island. It’s a place to step back in time and be immersed in culture and traditions!
El Gran Hotel provides private car service to attractions, towns and villages – Zirahuen, Santa Clara del Cobre, Ihuatzio, Quiroga, Morelia, Capacuaro, Zamora and Paracho – the best place in Mexico to buy a hand-crafted guitar. The Paricutin Volcano, Angangueo Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary and Uruapan’s National Park are a no-miss.
Tzintzuntzan and Tingambato ruins and pyramids are within easy reach. The magical pueblo of Patzcuaro and the surrounding is a mix of old and new – a part of Mexico where time stands still.
