Parque Nacional Barranca de Cupatitzio

Uruapan

Among the wooded scenery of the western zone of Uruapan, there is a splendid site made up of 425 hectares ( 1,050 acres ) full of pines where a river of clear waters winds among ferns until it drops into dreamy waterfalls, orchids and 89 more species of plants that will make you feel in an enchanted forest.

As you go into Parque Nacional de Cupatitzio (Cupatitzio National Park), now a protected area, it is very possible that you will find yourself facing some kind of salamander, frog or toad hiding among the moss or some birds that are its distinguished inhabitants.

This park is extremely popular as it is one of the few natural lungs in the city, so families usually gather to clear their heads a bit by breathing fresh air and getting physically active in the children's areas and their tracks to walk or run through this beautiful scenery.

If you are looking for less hectic activities, you can take advantage of the sale of handicrafts or typical food that is given in the place, how about tasting a freshly caught trout in the waters of its hatchery?

Only surrounded by nature will visitors understand the great importance of this biological corridor that emerges in the Pico de Tancítaro to take over the forest area of Uruapan.

Barranca de Cupatitzio is beautiful and it is also where different activities are carried out for its protection, because this is where the aquifers that feed the river from which the park takes its name are recharged and which is vital for the development of Uruapan, since it is the one that supplies the city with drinking water.
