Acuitzio del Canje
The little adventure, but very funny, began in the direction of Acuitzio del Canje, where my friend Leslie was waiting for me.
Acuitzio “Lugar de Culebras”🐍, which belongs to one of the 113 municipalities of the beautiful state of Michoacán, is located at a distance of 35 km from the city of Morelia.
Its climate is temperate, so it is pleasant even in summer🍀😊
Places to visit:
• Chapel of Sr. de la Expiración Páramo.
• Parish of San Nicolás Tolentino.⛪
• Chapel of the Sacred Heart.
• Chapel of San Isidro.
• Chapel of the Virgin of Guadalupe.
• Bust of Vicente Riva Palacio
History records that in pre-Hispanic times its region was inhabited by tribes of Nahuatl language, they founded the ceremonial center Coatepec, the evangelization by the Augustinian friars, because of the conquest the region was granted by Hernán Cortes to Juan Alvarado.
December 5, 1865
there was an exchange of prisoners of war. During the French intervention, one Belgian and one French prisoner were exchanged for a Mexican prisoner.
December 16, 1901

Time of the horses🐴🐎
Even though I’m a little afraid to be near a horse, they’re my favorite creatures, because of their strength and energy, I’d love to ride horses in the future.
After walking a little through the center of the village, we went to a place with horses, unfortunately, I could not ride one as they were too long-lived for that activity.
I’m happy to take some meaningful photographs and give them the food of the day. Interact with the majestic horses the afternoon you arrive and the morning you depart.
Certainly such a beautiful place full of essence, these horse places are not a tourist place, but if you decide to come to Acuitzio I can take you to the place if I give permission
He is Zapata, a colt full of life and with a long way to run, is the most restless and intelligent horse I have ever known.
She, is a very affectionate female, is completely deaf, and has some skin problems, say horses that have white spots; are deaf, simply beautiful and brave.
She is Mona, a pregnant and grumpy female, but very ready to claim her food, you should be careful about the issue of her hormonal changes.
After going to the center of town to eat something rich, we go to the lake of Umécuaro, located in the possession of Santiago Undameo, from Acuitzio by car are approximately 20 min, if you ask on the way you can get there.
At first, you will find a lot of witches wanting to do something to you (joke)😅 , you will find many figures and huge shapes made by witches who inhabit the area, totally this aspect is one of the things that makes the place even more epic and mysterious.
Don’t ask me to explain each of the objects, because I have no idea😂
With the help of a little imagination, you will come up with countless legends or stories of this place, what makes me even more interesting is because these groups chose this site to carry out their practices.
Some charming corners to stop and relax on the shore of the dam:
kayak or boat ride🚣
If you like aquatic sports, here you will find the kayak, they are usually rented, but this time because of the current situation there was no service, however, those boats are great.
We spent about 30 minutes in this magical place, Leslie and I discussing such existential things that we’d rather leave before dark.😱👻🌒
I am so grateful to have known this place, a bit isolated and lonely, where I turned to find a new and fantastic landscape, we touched a cloudy day so it was even more special and mystical.⛺
I definitely recommend this place, it’s the kind of scenario where you think leprechauns and strange things will come out of this crystalline dam.💚
It is true that with much more time you can explore more of the place, but it is necessary to prevent the walk.
The day ended with the observation of the starry sky🌌 near and a cat 😻, take care of the environment, and enjoy the wonderful nature.
See you soon!💕
