Monte Alto State Park

Valle de Bravo

The Monte Alto State Park is where adventurers crisscross the sky in Valle de Bravo, paragliding, where cyclists sweat out adrenaline all over its hills, and where travelers take refuge in cabins, drifting off to sleep to the sounds of the forest.

This natural wonder was forged in the Mesozoic era by the fury of three volcanoes. Lava molded the hills that we explore today. The Matlatzincas used to called it Cerro de Agua (Water Hill) because, during the rainy season, they could hear the underground streams flowing under the thick vegetation.

Today, the Monte Alto State Park is lined with trails used for long hikes, full-speed rides on mountain bikes or all-terrain vehicles, and to get to the paragliding launch tower. If you're afraid heights, there is a safe overlook that overlooks Valle de Bravo and the Nevado de Toluca (a snow-capped volcano). Be sure to take in the mushrooms and orchids that grow in the foothills. There are also birdwatching tours that feature species such as the woodpecker.

Feel free to bring your tent to Monte Alto, as there are special platforms for camping available. They also have dry toilets and showers. If you're looking for greater comfort, rent one of the cabins distributed throughout the forest.
