If you visit Uruapan be sure to save time for an afternoon at Parque Lineal de Camelina, located right next to the Uruapan National Park near Centro. We didn’t know it existed until recently and we spent a couple of hours exploring this beautiful place with our family…. By The Way…. It’s FREE!

And maybe it’s not hidden, but it definitely isn’t as popular as the Uruapan National Park. There are at least three entrances and all of them are easy to miss if you aren’t looking. Our family considers it to be just as pretty as the Uruapan National Park but much smaller in size.

One of the entrances is handicapped accessible. This is the entrance across the street from the San Pedro Fabric Factory. You won’t be able to go very far in a wheelchair but at least you will get a peek at the river and a couple pretty waterfalls. This spot is a great place for pictures.

Actually, we liked it so much we are getting ready to return this afternoon with our visiting friends from Ecuador ;-)

This is the entrance near the National Park. If you are standing in front of the National Park looking at the street you will take a right and walk down the street to a set of steep stone steps. Follow those to the bottom and enter the park.

This pretty old church is between the National Park and Parque Lineal. We usually park our truck near it on the street.

If you enter the park here and take a right you will be walking towards the National Park.

The National Park is on the other side of this fence. When we took our friends from Ecuador yesterday, the bridge connecting both parks was gone! I don’t know whether they took it down or it washed away. Either way, the gate is locked between both parks so you can’t use this entrance anyway.

Many old homes overlook Parque Lineal. I would love hearing the rush of the river at night. I think it would put me to sleep.

There a two or three little homes across the river at this spot within the park. If you look close you can see a little girl in pink atop the stairs near her home. She is probably wondering why we were on her bridge :-)

You can follow these steps out of the park if you want to see more… It loops around and will meet up with the same path you came in on.

Despite how inviting the water looks, especially on a hot day, there are “No Swimming” signs posted in most locations.

I discovered that this is a hotel! The courtyard looks so pretty with the flowers and pool. I was thinking Brad and I could have a getaway there and not even leave the city ;-)
