Isla de Janitzio is one of the five islands of Lake Pátzcuaro in the state of Michoacán, in Mexico. The picturesque island is popular among tourists and can be reached in about 20 minutes by boat from the dock. The town is famous for its butterfly fishermen who use butterfly-shaped nets to catch the local famous cuisine "pescado blanco". The other famous attraction is the 40-meters high statue of José María Morelos, a great hero of Mexico's independence, located exactly at the center and the highest point of the island. From the center, the land slopes down all around towards the water. Around the shore are a cluster of tightly packed houses.
