With the exception of Lake Pátzcuaro, the lookout, the bus station, and hotels on Lázaro Cárdenas, everything is within walking distance. Taxis are cheap. The lake is about 1km (around 2/3 mile) from town; buses make the run every 15 minutes from both the Plaza Grande and the Plaza Chica, going all the way to the embarcadero or muelle (pier).
