THE BEST SIDE OF THE LAKE.- El 'Alto Lucero' is a new house located exactly where you want to be, up high on the west side of Lake Zirahuen in a tiny and quiet community called Copandaro de Zirahuen. The highest and most panoramic view to the lake. Real peace and quiet are among our great assets in this lovely rural area, of course the view is unparalleled.
A beautiful pink paving stone and cobblestone road shaded by trees connects this slice of paradise in a 9 minute pleasant drive to Zirahuen town. Nevertheless, we have some small convenient stores 'tienditas' in the area.
Also on this side of the lake, 'La Troje de Ala', one of the best restaurants around the Lake with a pier and row boats for rent. 'Miralago' is another great restaurant where you can enjoy an international menu.
Also happily located a few yards away, at a walking distance is 'Agua Verde', an ecological center of recreation and fun surrounded by trees. You can take a boat, ride a bike, ride a horse, play 'gotcha' and fly over the lake suspended in the air (Zip Line). Great place to have lunch and drinks after enjoying a few hours of adventure. Note: The restaurants and ' Agua Verde', are open only during Weekends and Holidays.
All in all, 'El Alto Lucero', is the greatest place in the area! ...oh, and please, do not forget to visit our website. Look for the links that appear bellow on this page!

Hi, my name is Alejandra and my husband´s name is Enrique, we both are from Mexico City. We used to be in the advertising business but 10 years ago we decided to run away from all the noise and stress of the big city. First we lived in Patzcuaro and lately we had the greatest opportunity in our lives to move to Lake Zirahuen, one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. We just finished building this new casita for rent which is near ours. We both speak English and are ready to welcome people interested in sharing this slice of paradise with us.
Alejandra Terroba purchased this cottage in 2011
Being lake Zirahuen one of the most beautiful lakes in Mexico, we decided to sell our house in Patzcuaro and relocate in this magnificent area: It is quiet, gorgeous, not polluted. The water is a show that constantly renews itself. Local people are friendly and we are near the greatest colonial cities that have all the amenities, activities and services that you can find in big cities. Patzcuaro, Morelia, Uruapan, Santa Clara del Cobre just to mention a few.
The greatest view to the lake, real peace and quiet, clean air, lots of trees. Among other things, you can exercise riding a bike around the lake or hiking on the beautiful trails that abound near by. By the way.... did we mention that we have the greatest view to the lake???
We could not have asked for a more perfect location on Lake Zirahuen right on the lake. We were treated to the most spectacular lightning show across the lake toward the mountains, lighting up the lake as though Greek God Zeuss was conducting the show himself! Our hosts could not have been more caring, considerate and paid attention to every little detail both before and during our stay.
We had compared other places to stay at the lake and by far preferred this one. We had the opportunity to check out another place close by that friends of ours were staying in and theirs did not come close to El Alto Lucero. The other place being dirty and beyond rustic, lacked almost every utensil, cookware, or appliance a kitchen would need for even a short stay and their community center was a joke. Needless to say, we were so thrilled with ours that we plan a return trip soon.
Una vista preciosa, se respira una paz ,mucha tranquilidad, y un lugar muy seguro, la finca tiene todo lo necesario para pasar unos días muy especiales.
El trato y la atención de Los dueños (Ale y Quique) fue muy atento . Unos días inolvidables en el Alto Lucero.
Un Lugar muy recomendable.
Excelent place to enjoy , the 24 Hrs, due the great view!!!
Excellent property with great views.. The hosts were fantastic. This place has everything you need... I would definitely recommend..
Relaxing, beautiful, peaceful, serene! This little space has been prepared for you to come and live as though you are home, down to the very sharp knives! The views and the morning sun greet you daily, and the Zirahuén lights sparkle during the night. Friendly people and welcoming hosts make for a feeling of security and pleasure. Not far away are some wonderful towns for shopping, the beach and Mexico City! It's a great base camp for lots of day trips and short overnight adventures. You won't be disappointed!
It was so relaxing at El Alto Lucero that it was hard to leave to visit the surrounding area. When we did, we had a great time at Patzcuaro and Santa Clara del Cobre. We also spent much of our time by the lake fishing(bring your own poles) and rented kayaks. Many times we had the lake to ourselves. Alejandra and Enrique were wonderful hosts who made us feel very welcome. They enjoy sharing their paradise with others. The area is rural which we enjoyed very much. The house is very comfortable and well maintained. You can see by the pictures the charm and beauty but we recommend renting it and seeing it firsthand! We look forward to returning soon!
EL Alto Lucero is the perfect place to relax and recoup. It is a delightful place with gorgeous views of Lake Zirahuen and the sunrise if you are an early riser.. Ale and Enrique are wonderful hosts who will give you as much help as you need or leave you alone as much as you need.
We enjoyed our walks on the "pink" road around the lake and in the forest (a couple of times with Enrique). We experienced rural life in Mexico up close and personal on those walks. It was eye opening and picturesque.
The trails in the woods, are magnificent and ideal for hiking, mountain biking, horse riding, jogging, taking your pets for a walk or simply enjoy the scenery! ...and do not forget the nearby adventure park at a walking distance of more or less half a mile with Zip-Line over the lake, Gotcha, Horse riding, Mountain bikes, Four wheel motorcycles, Kayaking, Row boats, and two restaurants!
