In my experience, the only worth to visit place in Uruapan, this nature spot, is full with history, clear air, water and harmony. At any cost, avoid in holidays, it gets crowded with visitors and sellers and drunken people. If you visit Uruapan and stayed in some downtown hotel, you can go jog at the national park in the mornings... More

Absolutely beautiful! Make sure you wear appropriate shoes bc of the stone walkways. Also not stroller friendly. Scenery couldn't be more gorgeous!!

Just beautiful! Nice place to hike and enjoy God's beautiful nature! Pictures speak for themselves! This park has a river flowing that begins from and underground spring! It's just amazing how there is just so much clean running water all thru out the park!

This is a wonderful place which is green and full of plants that are normally seen in a more tropical environment. Lots of water features - fountains and falls. A trout farm. Ferns, rain trees, banana plants and climbers to name a few of the plants in the park. Also good bird life.

Absolutely beautiful and a one of Mexico's gems. The water is pervasive and fundamental to the experience. You are bombarded by young and old soliciting goods and services which sometimes distracted from the experience. All-in-all a highlight of this area among others.

We visited here and it was a blast! You hike through the dense jungle along a slightly trip hazard-like walkway. Look carefully and you may even find an actual coffee bean tree in the lush jungle that features bright red berries. Many vendors are located throughout the place that offer refreshments, although, this also subtracts a bit from the all... More

Very nice park and very enjoyable alone or as a family. It's a nice place to enjoy the nature and get rested or just relax. If you come to uruapan just for the park, I can recommend the hotel which is right next to the park.

This is an amazing display of the excellent engineering abilities of the Mexicans. It's a beautiful park, but it's also fascinating to see the variety of ways they display running water — so many different kinds of fountains and waterfalls. It's close to the better-known tourist attractions in Patzcuaro and well worth the stop.

This Parque is always a must for us to visit when we drive to Patzcuaro. It is in the town of Uruapan, about 1 hour from Patzcuaro. A clean beautiful river is diverted with beautiful rock work , making waterfalls, fountains and other water features. The plant life is incredible as well as birds and huge butterflies. It is a...
