A hidden gem in Mexico. Quite possibly the hidden gem in Mexico if you fancy great food, university gals and a casual nightlife environment. Capital of the state of Michoacan, known for delicious avocados and ruthless drug violence.
DATING IN MORELIA
I met many lovely Morelianas (?). Foreign tourists generally avoid Michoacan now because of the media’s hyperbolic reporting on drug violence, so your mere presence will generate interest from the locals. Again, being this far south in Mexico means a bit of Spanish will help your cause, but it’s not as necessary as in Puebla or Culiacan because many students here will speak English. One amazing morena with big brown eyes and curly black hair still haunts my dreams. . . hands off if you see her.

NIGHTLIFE IN MORELIA
Nightlife in Morelia is good for a city of its size. Slightly less pretentious than other cities like Monterrey or Cuernavaca, which means less pressure to look good and be on your game. As someone who’s introverted, I found the nightlife in this city to suit me well. Even the bigger, classier nightclubs have an air of casualness and felt less judgemental than Culiacan or Guadalajara. Although the clubs weren’t quite as wild and the girls weren’t as attractive (physically, at least. Personalities were amazing), I felt much more at ease.
I recommend: La Taberna. If you can’t make it happen here, forfeit your dick. I know, the video makes the quality of the girls look downright ghastly, but it’s not THAT bad. And they are sweethearts. And a bit older too so you won’t have to deal with any fresa bullshit. Hit EGO if fresas (upper class Mexican girls) are your thing.
IS MORELIA SAFE?
The cartel has been stirring shit up in Morelia for awhile now, but if you don’t go looking for trouble, you’ll be safe in Morelia. Some parts of the state, however, best be avoided unless you know the territory. A recent disappearance of an American tourist proves that, however unlikely, things can happen.

Life seems pretty good in Morelia. There’s girls, colonial architecture, and a relatively low cost of living. The people are friendly too. A possible downside could be security, as there has been a slight increase in drug violence in and around the city. But that’s a problem you’re unlikely to perceive.
