Every Thursday, starting on November 30, 2017 thru the last thursday of February 2018.
The tour begins in Mexico City, from here we depart for Piedra Herrada Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary at 5:45 am, we travel to the State of Mexico,on the border with the State of Michoacan, and arrive at “El Sauco”, the base of the mountain, at approximately 9:15 am. As soon as we arrive, and before you begin the trek to the Sanctuary, accompanied by a local guide, you will enjoy sandwiches, salads and refreshments, compliments of your tour. Due to the fact that this is a very rough uphill trail, we suggest you do the climb by horseback, these will be provided on site by the local guides, which is also included on the tour rate.
From Souco,we will travel to the nearby town of Valle de Bravo, this beautiful colonial town is a must see, there you will visit the town square and cathedral, and have an hour and a half of sightseeing, and a much needed lunch at a local restaurant, (not included on the rate of the tour), and from here, we will depart back to our final destination, Mexico City.
