Our "Finca El Alto Lucero" is located right on top of a hill in a tiny town called Copandaro de Zirahuen. This side of the lake is different from the side in Zirahuen. That part is flat and this is high. We have the best panoramic view to the lake.
Just a note: Since we are new here and we haven´t collected any reviews yet, you can always visit "Vacation rental by owner" and look for "Zirahuen-El Alto Lucero" and there you´ll find several reviews of our vacation rental: Lake Zirahuen "El Alto Lucero" (The High Bright Star).
THE BEST SIDE OF THE LAKE.- El "Alto Lucero" is located exactly where you want to be, up high on the west side of Lake Zirahuen in a tiny and quiet community called Copandaro de Zirahuen. The highest and most panoramic view to the lake. Real peace and quiet are among our great assets in this lovely rural area, of course the view is unparalleled.
A beautiful pink paving stone and cobblestone road shaded by trees connects this slice of paradise in a 9 minute pleasant drive to Zirahuen. Nevertheless, we have some small convenient stores "tienditas" in the area.

On this side of the lake, "La Troje de Ala", one of the best restaurants in the whole state of Michoacan. "Miralago" is another great restaurant where you can enjoy an international menu.
Also happily located a few yards away, at a walking distance is "Agua Verde", an ecological center of recreation and fun surrounded by trees. You can take a boat, ride a bike, ride a horse, play "gotcha" and fly over the lake suspended in the air (Zip Line). Great place to have lunch and drinks after enjoying a few hours of adventure.
Note: The restaurants, as well as "Agua Verde", are open only on weekends and holidays.

Hi, my name is Alejandra and my husband´s name is Enrique, we both are from Mexico City. We used to be in the advertising business but 10 years ago we decided to run away from all the noise and stress of the big city. First we lived in Patzcuaro and lately we had the greatest opportunity in our lives to move to Lake Zirahuen, one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. We just finished building this new casita for rent which is near ours. The surrounding area is quiet, gorgeous, not polluted. The water of the lake is a show that constantly renews itself. Local people are friendly and we are very near to the greatest colonial cities that have all the amenities, activities and services that you can find in big cities. Patzcuaro, Morelia, Uruapan, Santa Clara del Cobre just to mention a few.We both speak English and are ready to welcome people interested in sharing this slice of paradise with us
