Michoacan was one of the first states created by New Spain. It was once inhabited primarily by the Aztec’s powerful rivals, the Purepecha people whose art, crafts and cuisine still infuse the culture this beautiful state.
Today, Michoacan is one of Mexico’s biggest agricultural producers. With vast (though diminishing) pine forests that are the winter home to the Monarch butterflies that arrive here from Canada each fall, majestic rivers and lakes that provide the central part of the state with fresh fish, there´s lots to see and experience in Michoacan.
Lovely weather and colonial heritage make Michoacan´s capital city, Morelia, a great location for any event. The nearby gem of a colonial town, Patzcuaro set on Lake Patzcuaro is a must to visit and a perfect setting for pre or post-event activities.
