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.
