If you want an idea of the grandeur and majesty of the past local indigenous tribes this is a place to go spend an hour. Tranquil and peaceful.

We vsited Ihuatzuo recently and enjoyed it ... the remains of the pyramid base is a very simple three-sided structure surrounding a huge central plaza. it's very nice in the rainy season when it's green green green. You can hike up a path just beyond the site; when you get to the top you have nice views of Patzcuaro and the lake.

Visited in late April in the early afternoon. The ruins are about an hour away from Morelia. We were the only ones at the ruins at the time. The staff working there were really friendly and helpful as well. One of the staff members acted as our personal tour guide and told us everything about the history of the ruins. They definitely aren't the most amazing or best ruins around, but they were pretty impressive to someone like me who had never seen any ruins.

I like ruins enough. I go to learn. This is not the place. The information provided around the park on placards does not teach you anything about what you are looking at. You are on your own to make sense of it. Unlike many such sites, you cannot climb or walk on the ruins.
A boring way to spend 55 pesos.
One positive - nice view!

This is a small archeological site with the remaining of a small pyramid. The site is not well maintained and not comparable with that of Tzintzuntzan not far away. On the road next to the ruins are semipermanent marches of local pottery and baskets which are worth exploring.

One of the proto-hispanic cultures used to live here. There's a lovely on-site museum and a nice walk around the ruins of pyramids with views of the valley underneath the site. Modest entrance fee, a movie with introduction to the site and loads of green grass to walk across. A nice visit, a good day-trip from Morelia, combined with some other villages on Lake Patzcuaro.

Tzintzuntzan was our 2nd visit, we went to Ihuatzio two years ago. We enjoyed the history from the tour with an English speaking guide and learned about the importance of the Warriors from Tzintzuntzan in their history against the spaniards' conquer of Mexico. A strategic location with beauty and magic! Please visit!

If you have time for only one zona arqueológica, go to the site in Tzintzuntzan instead. This one is small and quaint. Enjoy

Were staying a couple of miles away, so decided to walk into Ihuatzio and turn up the hill at the sign we'd been reading as our "combi" zipped through, packed with locals. The street quickly leaves the small town and then seems notable for being in such good shape. There are even sidewalks. There is no traffic. To either side, stone walls fence off pastures and other parcels. The hill rises steadily, gently. Finally, there is park building with sanitarios and an adjacent building that sells tickets. You are on a plateau, a massive flat space bounded by the remains of ancient rock walls with roads on top and at ether end, low, massive ruins. Now the amazing rock walls in the fields make sense, as do the better buildings in the town below. Centuries of mining have stripped the facades that these people had slaved to build and demoted them to stock pens or the plastered-smooth interiors of churches built on other ruins.

It houses a partially restored set of Purépecha ruins. Its main attraction is the Plaza de Armas, an open ceremonial space 200 meters long, which also served as a ball court, and which has two rectangular pyramids 15 meters high (you can climb them). The site is partially surrounded by a road-wall.
