Well actually beyond the town of Cucuchucho along the lake road to Tzintzuntzan. This is something you'd miss without a tour or had lived in the area for awhile. This project was originally government funded to continue the knowledge and practice of indigenous medicine and medical practice. They are now mostly on their own.
We went with a tour organized through CELEP, my favorite Spanish school in the Patzcuaro area. The site is a combination of garden (herbs) and small hospital with a man and his mother acting as the "curanderos". Her specialty is helping pregnant women with natural birth and he is closest to a chiropractor (spinal alignment) along with herbs and good healthy advice you'd hear anywhere. They have 5-6 beds in the hospital and a large herbal pharmacy. Interesting tour
