Visit the Sierra Chincua Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary and witness the incredible natural phenomenon of the Monarch butterfly migration. Each year, to escape harsh winters, millions of beautiful, orange and black-winged Monarch butterflies migrate 2500 miles from Canada to the butterfly reserves, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site, in rural Michoacán, Mexico. Their home is in the branches of almost 2,000 oak and evergreen trees that are approximately 100 feet high…it’s breathtaking.
Here is a short story about Christina and her 3 beautiful young kids who went to visit Sierra Chincua Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary recently. You can have the option to hike the mountain to go see the butterflies (45 min) or enjoy a peaceful horses riding, to climb the mountain in a beautiful forest (15 min). After this visit, you can stop on one of the little restaurants at the bottom of the mountain.
Here comes my Prince Charming, wonder if he could give me a ride?
I can do this by myself!
Ah!!! I saw the first butterfly! I learned that this kind of flower is the butterfly’s favorite food – the Milkweeds.
Shhh…let’s not wake her up.
Mama, that’s a butterfly rain!
Butterflies have a beautiful home, they live in a magical forest of sacred trees – the “Abies religiosa”
Yeah! We made it to the top!
And more fun after the butterflies… Zipline and forest climbing!
