How do I meet people in Patzcuaro?
When we asked people living in Patzcuaro about club and activities where newcomers can meet others, they responded:
"It depends on who you want to meet. There is an English library inside the restaurant, Lupita's, a few steps from the Bascilica on Arciga Street. A volunteer group has their meetings there. English is spoken. They would welcome volunteers. If you want to meet Indigenous Purepecha, Mulle (dock) San Pedrito is run by them and it is a beautiful park next to the lake. Also they sell their art on the street and in the mercado in Centro ( open every day-even Christmas.) They also sell fruits and vegetables, clothes, shoes, socks, anything you need. To become friends with local people, it is necessary to speak Spanish and they are friendly. There are usually English speakers sitting outdoors at a cafe on Plaza Grande. One can take Spanish lessons as well,"
said a retiree who moved to Patzcuaro, Mexico.
"Just talk to people in Spanish anywhere you happen to be. I'm not a club person or organized. Haven't met any other americans here,"
said another retiree in Patzcuaro.
