Valle de Bravo

Estado de México

The answer to the question: What to do in Valle de Bravo?, is infinite. This Pueblo Mágico (Magical Town) at the Estado de México has everything to be enjoyed by land, water, and air. Its attractions and the different ways of knowing them will awake in you the desire to visit this place during several weekends.

If this is your first time in Valle de Bravo, you will surely want to start by exploring downtown, especially if you the kind of traveler which loves colonial architecture and streets full of little bars, restaurants and handicraft shops, to go through them at any time. For this reason, we recommend that you look for accommodation in this area: ignore the rumor that all hotels in Valle de Bravo are expensive. For example, there are beds that do not exceed 600 pesos per night.

There are four attractions that you should not miss when exploring the center: Capilla de Santa María (saint Mary’s Chapel) and its miraculous Black Christ; the Archaeological Museum, which preserves 300 pieces from the three thousand archeological sites found in the State of Mexico; the large Handicraft Market, to buy a souvenir made out of wood, clay, blown glass, wrought iron or a garment woven by Mazahua hands; and, of course, the pier at the lake.

The huge turquoise crescent-shaped body of water is the Presa Miguel Alemán (Miguel Alemán Dam) and it would almost be a sin if you do not navigate it during your trip. You can do it by kayak, or water skis, on a donut pulled by a speedboat, on a sailboat and even on a catamaran, with music and drinks included. Watching the sunset from this point is quite a spectacle.

Paragliding over Valle de Bravo will not be missed, the tranquility of its winds have earned world recognition for the practice of this activity. The vast majority of these experiences include a 20-minute flight over the dam and the forest, as well as a snack on a beach on the artificial lake after you land.

You can also get to know this destination for its four forests, Monte Alto, El Fresno and Acatitlán, a few kilometers from downtown. You will notice that they feature the rental of cabins (for all budgets) and their wide range of adventure activities. To be able to go from one place to another you will need a car or rent an ATV.

At the Reserva Ecológica Monte Alto (Ecological Reserve), extreme sports will be the order of the day where you will find tracks for mountain biking, off-road vehicles, and Paintball-fields. A little further you will find the Kartódromo, where you can race a go kart in the style of the Formula One drivers, some of whom occupy the circuit to train.
