Arrival at Piedra Herrada to visit the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary which every year travels from Canada 5,000 kilometers to spend the winter in Mexico. To get to the sanctuary we will make a walk through the forest and explain to us that the butterflies feed, how they reproduce, time of life, etc.
Continue to the Velo de Novia Waterfall which is an impressive waterfall that is fed by the San Juan stream. It receives this name because the forms that take its descent give the appearance of a huge white “Bride’s Veil”.
Later we will visit the Magic Town of Valle de Bravo where we can observe its main tourist attraction “The Lake of Valle de Bravo” in which you can currently practice water sports and enjoy incredible boat or yacht rides. Since 1947 it is part of the Valle de Bravo basin, when the dam of the same name was created to catch the water of the Avándaro River, which now gives its name to the lake and one of the adjacent towns.
