Hi, My husband and are are staying in Ixtapa from Dec. 7th to 22nd. We thought it would be fun to come to Patzcuaro and are wondering how if you have availability for 2 or 3 nights from the 12th on. Also how much is it per night to stay.
We are very concerned about the safety of driving to the area. Some have suggested it's better to take a bus than to drive on your own. Can you help answer this concern. thank you!
Hi I do have availability for your dates. Dec 12th is the Feast Day of the Virgen of Guadalupe! Patzcuaro is always a great place to come visit. My prices run $57 for the "Nest" to $90 for a room with a kitchenette or a 2 room suite. The rooms with fireplaces run $85. This price includes WiFi, a full Traditional Mexican breakfast of fruit, juice, Pan Dulce, eggs, beans & potatoes. I would highly recommend a tour on your first day with Jaime of Animecha Tours... you can google him. And also I would recommend a massage by Ulises. He is amazing and his prices cannot be beat $23 for an hour to $41 for 3 hours. I am giving the prices in dollars only so it is easier to understand. I prefer Peso equivalent, but also accept Dollars. Your concern about safety is because of the press. Driving from the coast is easy. The highway (toll road) is fast and I have not heard of problems. People drive it every day. The bus is also easy. One leaves in the morning and arrives in Uruapan around 11 Am and we can send a taxi for you. It is another 40 minutes to Patzcuaro. Finally I can send a taxi to Ixtapa for about $250 US door to door. Please got to my web page so you can see the rooms and we can move to a reservation. THANKS for you interest, Victoria Ryan
Thank you Nick,
I tried to give you a vote to say thanks, but think I did it wrong. I appreciate your words of advice and am looking forward to my trip! Best, Elaine
Dear Vancouver realtor,
Hotel Ecantada is a very good hotel situated at the heart of the historical centre. It's beautiful, picturesque and the service is very good. As for safety, my wife and I travelled with a rental car all the way from Guadalahara and the route was safe. Make sure though you take the highway, otherwise it will take you hours. In case you pick up a car, AVOID the following companies: Mex and Fox. We had a number of unbelievable problems at the expense of our budget and holiday organization.The area of Patzcuaro is wonderful except for the island in the lake where the day of the dead is celebrated which is dirty and unpleasantly touristic.
Have a wonderful time,
