Day to day plan for the Mexico multi activity holiday:
Day 1: Arrival in Mexico City
Arrival in Mexico City. You will be welcomed by your professional naturalist tour guide. Transfer to Catedral Hotel or similar. Once in the hotel, you´ll get a briefing. Your guide likes to tell you more about the activities and security. Besides your guide will tell some fun facts about the culture & monarch butterfly tour in Mexico.
First visit the Anthropology Museum, one of the world’s finest archaeological museums with a huge collection of artifacts in 23 exhibition halls. Its most famous exhibit is the Aztec sunstone, a cosmological calendar. Afterward, we will depart to Valle de Bravo. This magical town surrounded by mountains is considered as the most important tourist destination thanks to its excellent hotels, restaurants, equestrian club, beautiful golf courses, and a man-made lake. Check-in at the Mesón de las Leyendas hotel or similar.
Visit the Piedra Herrada Sanctuary, the newest spot to watch the monarch butterflies. Horses will take you there most of the way, to the spot where the monarch butterflies are located. This area is “wilder” than the other sanctuaries and often provides a more remote nature experience. Be part of the ecotourism in Mexico. Overnight in Mesón de las Leyendas hotel or similar.
Today we visit the Capulin Sanctuary. In this sanctuary, you can watch the largest and most beautiful prairie of the Monarch Butterfly region called Los Tres Gobernadores (The Three Governors). Because of its access position and the hibernation colony’s location, is it possible to watch an amazing transition of the vegetation! Which is an attractive site for those who enjoy nature. Afterward, we go back to the Mesón de las Leyendas hotel or similar.
Free day to enjoy the area of Valle de Bravo. Life´s here (literally) built around the lake. The waters of Valle de Bravo are calm and ideal for sports like sailing, water-skiing, or kayaking. Enjoy your free afternoon, and pick an activity which you like. Tonight we stay at Meson de las Leyendas hotel or similar, for one more night.
Take your time and relax in the morning. Later, we go back to Mexico City and check-in at the Catedral hotel or Similar.
The last day of the Monarch Butterfly tour in Mexico. Transfer to the airport for your flight back.
