From my several trips to Morelia, I can say you can go most anywhere without the use of a car. Depending on your budget, taxi’s and the perennial bus system can get you wherever you want to go. It will take some planning and knowledge of the bus routes if you choose that mode. I enjoy hoofing it across the downtown section. There is no better way to experience the place than with your feet to the pavement. I am amazed at the street traffic. From my gringo perspective driving ( and riding with a driver ) seems like chaos: next to no signage, tiny street markings - a seemingly free for all adventure. Yet, the traffic halts for all pedestrians and the drivers are as courteous as can be. Amazing by Chicago standards ( my biggest city analogy ). You’d be honked, cursed and maybe more with the same style of driving.
