Eco parks and Fireflies Route

Amecameca

Surrounded by beautiful forests and guarded by Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl volcanoes, Amecameca is a destination for resting in nature in some of the many ecotourism parks that surround this historic town.

Bosque Esmeralda, for instance, has zip lines, suspension bridges, a rappel line, a Christmas tree nursery, a forest restoration area and palapas; as well as trails for biking, horseback riding or walking.

Other options are the Ayapango Ecotourism Park, the Apatlaco Ecotourism Center, El Galpón Tourist Park, El Encanto Ecotourism Park and San Pedro Eco Park, among others.

During summer—June to August—the community members of Rancho del Valle, Bosque Esmeralda and Ecoturístico Chalma eco parks offer nature lovers the Ruta de las Luciérnagas (Route of the Fireflies).

The tours take place on weekends at sunset and visitors have the chance to enjoy the spectacle offered by hundreds of thousands of fireflies Photinus palaciosi, which have their habitat in the oak forests that predominate in the region. Even those who wish so can spend the night in the cabins offered by the parks.
