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.


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.
