Experience one of the most surprising migrations in wildlife


Monarch butterflies arrive after flying more than 2000 miles from northeast United States and southeast Canada to spend winter in Mexico in woods of State of Mexico and Michoacan after surfing a row of obstacles.

This is one of the longest migration of wildlife in the world

make a stop on the way driving around 2:30 hours west of Mexico city and once we arrive at Sanctuary we start to climb around 45 minutes to see where butterflies spend winter.
