My first time in uruapan,michoacan and fell in love with this place. Everything in the parque nacional is amazingly beautiful. It's so fresh from all the waterfalls. A great place for kids. I highly recommend this place to everyone and definitely get a guide so they can tell you everything about this beautiful place. We visited in March 2014 and... More

This beautiful park is just a short walk from El Centro Comercial. I would recommend setting aside several hours to explore and enjoy this park.

After all the colonial towns it was nice to skip into an easy nature fix. It has pools, bridges, a ton of stones and a huge jungle canopy. It was a pleasant surprise how much I enjoyed this. It was a lush chill stroll.

We got to visit this park while staying in Uruapan on an organized tour. It was only a 15-minute walk from the downtown area. Admission was 25 pesos. I was surprised at how pretty the park was with charming paths, lush vegetation, a small stream and numerous man-made waterfalls, pools and displays. It reminded me of something you would expect...

We live an hour and a half drive away from the park, so have visited several times. It is a place we often bring visitors to the area. You spend two or three hours walking on paths along the rushing Cupatitzio river (there is a main path that one can stay on, and other side trails for those who wish... More

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
