Lake Zirahuen is a little known treasure in the state of Michoacán, only 20 minutes by highway from the colonial town of Pátzcuaro.  The crystal blue waters of the pristine lake are complemented by surrounding hills forested with pines and oaks.

Zirahuen has long been a tourist destination for those interested in natural beauty and outdoor activities such as bicycling, horseback riding, kayaking, hiking and zip-lining. Vacation rentals and restaurants are plentiful ranging from reasonable to luxurious.

The village of approximately 3000 people (including a small expat community) offers a variety of  shops to provide tourists and locals alike with most food and household supplies. Not to be missed is the weekly Wednesday ‘tianguis’ or street market, featuring fresh farm produce. 

As infrastructure in Zirahuen has improved, including the new cobblestone road around the lake, people from all over Mexico and non-Mexicans are considering home ownership in Zirahuen. Attracted by the stunning lake and forests, this peaceful haven has exceptional property options to offer to potential buyers, from small town lots and  rustic homes, to luxury homes with acreage and lake views.

Enjoy the privacy of country living with the convenience of city goods and services in neighboring  Pátzcuaro, Uruapan and Morelia, only 20-60 minutes away.

Zirahuen is no longer just a tourist destination; it’s a place to call home!
