Santa Clara is a great place to buy anything copper. El Portón is a wonderful store. If they don't have what you need in copper, they will make it.

As everyone knows this is the place for copper. From bracelets, rings and necklaces all the way up with large sculptures, pots & pans all at very reasonable prices. However, this is more than just the vendors around the square, take the time to visit...More

Highlight of the vacation was the visit to a copper forge and seeing first-hand the labor that goes into making a hand-hammered copper piece. In addition the copper work is amazing—I only wished we had bought more!

It's like going to the source. A quaint little working town filled with wonderful artistry. Worth the drive if you are exploring the area.

after having just been to charming Patzcuaro. This town is much smaller and there really isn't a lot to see except the copper vendors stands.

I've grown up near a copper mine and these artisans take working with copper to a new level. Wonder, detailed complicated pieces abound. Don't miss a demo if possible...just go!!!!

The town is tiny and not as nice as Pátzcuaro, but the copper handcrafts are amazing. It is 20 minutes from Patzcuaro and it has at least a dozen stores with beautiful and very affordable copper products. Really worth the trip.

I can't answer the part about driving there, but Santa Clara del Cobre is a sleepy little village and very safe. It is very close to Patzcuaro and easy to get there by cab. Make sure that you get to see the demonstration... More
