Private tour to see the Monarch butterflies


Every year Monarch butterflies come from the Rocky Mountains and the Great Lakes to the temperate forests in Mexico. They fly up to 5, 000 km (about 3, 000 mi) for the winter in Mexico.
The season is from November to March, when they go back to the north.
Going there is a beautiful experience that is available a few months every year.
