Escape to the Coast of Michoacan

Maruata, turisto alternativo en zona indigena
Maruata, a tourism alternative in the Zone of the Natives

"Where there are precious things" it is the meaning of the word Maruata. And truly precious things can be enjoyed in its three beaches and environment. The native area is ideal for fishing and camping, while visiting the amazing "Finger of God". The tranquility of fate, the silence interrupted by waves, filled experience in this part of the coastal Michoacan.
