Michoacan boosts some of the best surf in Mainland Mexico. It has a sordid past that includes carjackings, beheadings, drug running and robberies, but it remains a favorite haunt for surfers who wish to be in the thick of Mexico.
In the heart of Michoacan is beautiful Patzcuaro, a colonial town in the mountains not far from Morelia. It exhibits both the terror, love and hope that Mexicans have for their country, in the midst of some scary times. Viva Mexico!
