Cupatitzio River in Uruapan National Park, Michoacan.

The Cupatitzio River is a river of Mexico. It has its main source in an outstandingly beautiful Uruapan National Park, in Uruapan municipality, Michoacan state, Southwestern Mexico.

Course[edit]

Close to its source are two water falls. The larger Tzararacua and the Tzararacuita or little Tzararacua.

After flowing some distance in the highland ("Altiplano") of western-central Michoacan State, the river takes a course mainly towards the south.

It drains into the Balsas River which, in turn, empties into the Pacific Ocean.
