Monarch Butterfly Sanctuaries

Angangueo

Visiting this destination without entering to its sanctuaries is like not having been there at all. We recommend that you approach the local operators, who know the climate in Angangueo better and evaluate the best possibilities so you may enjoy without setbacks.

Once this is done, choose the places that interest you the most. Consider that the capacity may be limited. If one is not available, you may discover another one. El Rosario Sanctuary is the largest and busiest one within the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve.

It is located just 25 minutes by car, starting from the Magical Town of Angangueo and has specialized guides in the field. The tours last around 20 minutes, enough time to appreciate these species without disturbing them and preventing crowds from forming among visitors.

The second most visited one is the Sierra Chincua Sanctuary, getting there also takes about 25 minutes by car and is attended by qualified personnel. In addition to contemplating butterfly migrations, on this site you can do adventure activities such as zip lining, walking on hanging bridges or climbing.

It also has craft shops and restaurants that offer typical snacks such as mushroom soup. Another one that deserves to be visited is the Senguio Sanctuary, less frequented than the previous ones but perhaps for that very reason it is quite attractive.

It is located an hour away from the Mineral de Angangueo and its ways of accessing it will be a delight for the more adventurous personalities since it can be entered by hiking, horseback riding, or by truck. It has among other services camping areas, bicycle rentals, zip lining and restaurants that offer typical dishes, ideal to enjoy at the end of the tours.
