    Natural spectacles in Mexico

    Alejandra Arellano

    Nature has the power to surprise us, it is like a force that surrounds us and, although we do not realize it, we totally depend on it. It  takes time to appear, sometimes only when it wants to, but it achieves everything.

    Our country has the indescribable fortune of being surrounded by Mother Nature, by the natural biodiversity given to us to maintain and care so it continues looking beautiful and at its best.

    If we are lucky we realize that it shows us spectacles to change part of our life for a moment.

    Next, we leave you a small list of some of the best natural spectacles that Mexico has.

    Reserva de la Biósfera de la Mariposa Monarca

    We start with the best known and most loved the flight of the monarch butterflies. Without a doubt, a wonderful spectacle that will leave you enchanted. In Michoacán you can witness this incredible natural event, where millions of specimens arrive from the United States and Canada and adorn the trees in the forests of central Mexico after traveling 8,000 km of distance (more than 12,000 miles). The best months to admire them are between March and November.

    The first corner of Mexico to receive sunlight

    In the Yucatan Peninsula, Isla Mujeres is the perfect place where you can witness the first rays of sun touching Mexico. From the North Point of the Island, an unmissable sunrise will say good morning to you. The blue sky with reddish colors will give you the perfect image to start your day, along with the sea breeze and the sand that will awake your senses.

    Macaw sighting

    In Chiapas and Veracruz the sky is painted in colors thanks to the flights of the thousands of Macaws that inhabit these tropical areas. The protection and reintegration programs of this species in Mexico have gradually made possible for more of these beautiful beings to be the protagonists of spectacles worthy of admiration.

    Bioluminescence on the beach

    Without a doubt, you can find one of the best shows on several beaches: Lagunas de Chacahua, in Oaxaca, Holbox in Quintana Roo, Xpicob in Campeche and Bucerías in Nayarit. Bioluminescence is something that you should not miss, you can see how the waters glow when they are sired due to the millions of microorganisms known as dinoflagellates. It is a wonderful natural event.

    Do not miss out witnessing these incredible spectacles that Mexico has, it is a very good opportunity to admire the beauty that nature gives us.
