Monarch Butterfly Migration
Monarch Butterfly Migration
Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico
23 Nov, 2019


Great hotels & visited some beautiful pueblos (Morelia, Patzcuaro, Tlaquepaque) from launching point of Guadalajara. The El Rosario Sanctuary for the Monarch butterflies is in a remote location, very beautiful. It requires patience & fitness because it took many hours traveling in small vehicles then 1+ hours climb to see the butterflies ( or horseback riding up to see them), then 1 hour to walk down or horseback ride down. It can be a challenging trip but I enjoyed it immensely as well as meeting some outstanding new friends.

Great destinations. Guadalajara, Tonala, Tlaquepaque, Morelia, Patzcuaro, all first rate. Hotels in Guadalajara, 5 stars. Hotel in Morelia, noisy, inadequate bathroom. Butterfly day interesting, unique, fun. Only negative...transportation was inadequate for the group size. 3-4 hour drives would be more comfortable with more room in the van and SUV.
