Janitzio Island (Isla Janitzio) is in the middle of Lake Pátzcuaro. The town of the same name is built in terraced fashion. Day of the Dead ceremonies held Nov. 1-2 include an all-night candlelight vigil in the village cemetery. The island is accessible by launch and is crowded with day visitors on weekends and holidays.
