See the monarch butterfly migration at Piedra Herrada Sanctuary.
You get your first opportunity to see the beautiful monarch butterflies today at the Piedra Herrada Sanctuary. Horses take you up a trail most of the way, after which you walk, often through thick vegetation, to the spot where the butterflies are located. This area is wilder than the other sanctuaries and provides a more remote nature experience. Once you find a colony, you’ll be completely surrounded by butterflies! They’ll be in your hair, on your backpack, everywhere!
The monarch butterfly migration takes place every autumn (around October end) when millions of monarchs migrate from the US to Mexico and California to escape the winter. Surprisingly, the monarchs only use specific trees each year. Considering that the same butterflies don’t migrate every year, this information transfer is quite a mystery!
Experience the monarch butterfly migration at El Capulin Sanctuary.
Look at monarchs at El Capulin Sanctuary today. You can see the largest and most beautiful prairie of the Monarch region here called Los Tres Gobernadores (The Three Governors). Due to its access position and the hibernation colonies location, you can watch an amazing transition of vegetation in this region, an intriguing sight for nature lovers.
Enjoy a day of leisure at Valle de Bravo where you can take up adventure sports at the lake.
Today you’re free day to explore Valle de Bravo on your own. Life here is built around the beautiful lake where you can go boating, sailing, water skiing, and kayaking. You also can go hang gliding, rent a bicycle, or choose revisit any of the sanctuaries here.
