Welcome to Paracho
Paracho, or Paracho de Verduzco to give it its full name, 40km north of Uruapan on Hwy 37, is a hardscrabble little Purépecha town with little to recommend it except for one major drawing card: it has made high-quality stringed instruments by hand since time immemorial. So, if you are in the market for a reasonably priced and well-made guitar, violin, cello or traditional Mexican guitarrón (Mexican stand-up bass), you’ve come to the right pueblo.
