The town of Janitzio, which means “where it rains” (hell, does this mean that Seattle has to change its name ????) can only be reached by boats. The water taxis run from a number of locations around the lake, but the primary departure location is from the embarcadero (pier) here in Patzcuaro.
We had heard that once you depart the boat, you start your hike…STRAIGHT UP HILL!!!! That is no bull, and if you remember, we’re at 7200 feet already…PUFF PUFF. Well I think we did really well. Did we have to stop and catch our breath??? Oh ya, but not all that many times. Almost every step you took would land you in front of another little shop
