Witness the arrival of the Monarch Butterfly

usuario Alexia Arana
Mexico is a multifaceted destination, rich in culture, traditions and also in nature, its diversity of climates and ecosystems makes this region the favorite place for a large number of species. 

Such is the case of the Monarch Butterflies, which adorn the Mexican skies with their beauty and characteristic color. Without a doubt, its arrival is an event that has to be experienced once in a lifetime. 

For this reason, we invite you to visit the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary, which is located in Michoacán. This place becomes home to millions of butterflies that come to spend the winter from November to March. Their presence paints the landscape in orange, offering an unmatched spectacle. 

Not only will you enjoy the view of the place, an experienced guide will also give you information about this event so that you can learn more about the wonders that occur in Mexico. If you are lucky, some butterflies will hover over you, giving you a special connection with nature. 

The main access gives you the opportunity to reach the sanctuary on foot or on horseback. We recommend the second option, since you can enjoy the landscape with peace of mind, and you can cross it off your “to do” list. 

The route that the butterflies follow also includes the State of Mexico, so this event is enjoyed from its passage through the Mexican sky until reaching their sanctuary. 
It is a wonderful experience that you should not miss; all who have been able to enjoy this event describe it like an incredible, peaceful and sometimes miraculous sensation.
