This was our second visit to Lake Zirahuen and we took the time to drive most of the loop around the lake. Often compared by some in Mexico to Lake Tahoe, the pristine blue waters of this deep high country lake are very impressive! At one corner of the lake sits the small village of Zirahuen and sparsely scattered along the shores are various resorts and clusters of cabanas and restaurants.

This lake located at a bit over 7000' is a source of the trout served in many Michoacan restaurants and is also quite popular as a recreational lake with boating, zip-lines, fishing, kayaking, pedal boats, mountain bike riding, etc. I have previously reviewed the Miralago Restaurant with its rental cabanas and we stopped to check out the Turinjandi Resort: http://translate.google.com.mx/translate?hl=en&sl=es&u=http://turinjandi.mx/&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dturinjandi%26hl%3Den%26biw%3D1262%26bih%3D593&sa=X&ei=IEYuUcDHLsiFywGrzIHIBA&sqi=2&ved=0CDwQ7gEwAQ

This lake would be a great getaway spot for a relaxing weekend or week of recreation and is located only 18km from Patzcuaro.

As beautiful as I remember it. I've never seen cleaner, clearer water anywhere. You can see every bit of vegetation and every pebble on the bottom. cheers

Kip:

I was quite surprised to read that the lake bottom was mostly sand with mud in a few areas given its location surrounded by mountains. The blue water puts Lake Patzcuaro and other lakes to shame! We are planning to rent a home there for about 30 days of relaxation at some point down the road. Example of a home for rent:

Just gorgeous, as is the Trout Meuniere in Morelia. YUM.
