Nuevo San Juan is a little town in the state of Michoacan, Mexico. The full name of the town is Nuevo San Juan Parangaricutiro. The most interesting fact about this town is that the original San Juan was destroyed by the Paricutin volcano in 1943. After this, they moved the town to a new location and it became Nuevo San Juan. You can see photos of the Paricutin volcano in this post HERE.

If you visit Uruapan you should take the time to see San Juan. It is only about a 2o minute drive outside Uruapan. San Juan is a cute little town with an outside market and a few yummy and authentic Mexican restaurants. In the meantime, enjoy my photos of our visit with my parents and leave me a comment below.
