Magic Town: Mineral de Angangueo (Optional)
This beautiful town is a harmonious fusion of indigenous and colonial talent, bathed in the mist and freshness that add charm to the environment and fill the surrounding mountains with greenery, which shelters one of the great natural wonders of Mexico: the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary.
Angangueo means the entrance of the cave and is a town of mining origin where we will visit the Parish of San Simon and the Temple of the Conception designed in a Gothic style.
We will visit the Museum of La Casa Parker to see a photographic chronicle of the mining era in its heyday. In addition, we will enter the Tunnel of San Simon, to admire a vein discovered in 1792, 9.50 meters deep, with an approximate length of 100 meters where we will learn about mining, with the various metals that were extracted from there. As well, we will see different tools, a furnace in which the metals were melted, the clothing used at that time by miners, lamps and gondolas for the transport of minerals.
Marvel at the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve
Visiting the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary is a wonderful experience; it is about millions of butterflies that migrate from the United States and Canada traveling more than 5,000 km to reach in Mexico a beautiful place known as the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve, named as a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO in 2008.
The Monarch Butterfly travels more than 5,000 kilometers from the northern United States and Canada to reach Mexico, specifically to the forests of Pine and Oyamel in the State of Mexico and Michoacán named Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve, where these beautiful insects find the most favorable conditions to hibernate and reproduce.
The monarch butterflies have a striking orange color and black stripes and only the males have black dots in the upper part.
They can have a size of 8 to 12 cm and besides having great beauty and color; they are of vital importance in the Life cycle as a pollinating agent and factor of ecological balance in the forests they inhabit. It is very important to mention that no butterfly completes a round trip, because them only live a few months, so those who arrive at sanctuaries have never been there before and never will come back, in fact, are the fifth generation descended from those that left from the sanctuaries the previous summer. Amazing! Don’t you think that?
You can enjoy this beautiful natural show on Mexican territory from November to March. You cannot miss it!
