Authentically Angahuan

Angahuan is tucked safely away from the reach of the Paricutin Volcano. It is an unusual destination. While the volcano draws international and Mexican tourists, the village clings fiercely to it's Purepecha roots. Alien to foreign ears, the daily news is droned out in the Purepecha language three times a day over the village loudspeakers. Horses are the main form of transportation that makes it's way up and down the cobble and dirt streets. Negotiating the manure, and dirt and cobbles can seem treacherous at times. While making your way through town keep your eyes peeled for anyone selling blue corn tortillas and eat with Mercedes at Restaurant Angahuan.

It looks like you're on the movie set of an old John Wayne western.
