This was a great day trip from where we were staying in Patzcuaro. All natural beauty in the middle of a big city. Clean bathrooms too, always a plus! Great for all ages.

The national park is a visit you must do when you are in uruapan. It is a place surrounded by vegetation and natural waterfalls. Is a place you can have a morning walk, and enjoy the benefits of nature. There is a new walking corredor next to the park that takes you next to the river to the old San... More

I came here expecting to see a river that appears out of nowhere and then disappears. I got so much more. For starters, made it there by way of second class bus. Sadly, no chickens, but no a/c, and the entertainment was provided by a passenger's boom box. When the bus stopped in the middle of nowhere for seemingly no... More

This is such a beautiful park, and can be a destination in itself. Other reviewers have told you most everything you need to know. We spent 2 1/2 hours there and could have stayed longer, but we were getting hungry and wanted to see some of Uruapan's other attractions. We travelled around parts of Michoacan by bus and found the... More

Absolutely magnificent and worth a trip to this area for this very reason. Uruapan. Avocado capital of the world. Fabulous coffee growing area. Macadamia nuts - check. Cacao- yup. World... More

Nice walk through the beautiful tropical gardens and waterscapes. Ask for one of the kids / locals to tell you about the legend of the park, its very cool.

Entrance is free to residents of Uruapan, and they must be grinning to themselves every time they enter. We found this park to be well done, and a literal oasis from the city. The vegetation is lush. The sound of the river is therapeutic. The water is blue. The common areas are taken care of. A wonderful place for a... More

There are walks, lots of waterfalls and fountains The plant life is luxuriant and the whole area is cool after the hot sun you are exposed to outside the park/. There is a trout farm where you can feed the fish and even... More

Amazing water designs that continually keep you in awe. Located in the heart of the city makes it convenient although you think you are far removed from the hustle and bustle! A must if you are any where near Uruapan.
