Barrancas de Cupatitzio:. The Cupatitzio Canyon National Park is located near Uruapan, Michoacan, at 110 km from Morelia, the capital of the state and at the west of Mexico City (400 km approx.). The Park is also known as the “Eduardo Ruiz National Park” in memory of the politician, historian, writer and journalist who gave in the land where the park is today. The exact birthplace of the river Cupatitzio is called the Devil's knee, a pool of 3 m deep, where local children request coins to dive and find them in the bottom. The river runs through the park, generating countless of spring fountains and already outside the city it runs slowly until it reach the canyon that leads to the waterfall of la Tzaráracua.

Cuerámaro Lake: Sacred space of the Purépecha Empire, apparently his name means "place of the hidden bitterness". It is surprising the immobility of the waters of Camécuaro's lake; the banks are the roots of the Sabines, twisted, muscular and ghostly shapes trees. Many of them are so old that you can be certain that under the same trees that you are, people ruled by King Tariácuri before the conquest, also rested there. The lake, near the city of Zamora, is physically transformed during the fall. The leaves on the trees take various shades of red that give the water a dense brick color on the swimming groups of white ducks. The water comes from two sources: the Duero River, and the mouths of springs. In this protected national park, you can swim, camp, small splash in warm pools that form between the roots along the trails, hiking and snorkeling.
