Monarch Butterflies in Michoacan, Mexico

By Paige, Nicaragua, December 2011

No reviews, be the first!

The monarch butterflies have begun to arrive to Michoacan State’s UNESCO Butterfly Biosphere Reserve, as they do every November, reaching peak butterfly density—perhaps a billion individuals flitting about the trees—by mid-January. Visitors from all over the world come to see the magnificent creatures in the mountainous pine forests just north of Mexico City (though they are often so tuckered out after their 3000km (1800mi) trip, that they just hang there quietly in the trees).

Editor’s Note: This recommendation was taken from our Mexico Things To Do blog. Visit the original post to continue reading the full post and to learn more about things to do in Mexico.
