Visit the Piedra Herrada butterfly sanctuary
Every year, millions of migratory monarch butterflies congregate within a small area in Mexico, one of which happens to be the Piedra Herrada Butterfly Sanctuary, which is very close to Valle de Bravo.
The Piedra Herrada Butterfly Sanctuary is located 3,000 m (9,800 ft) above sea level, which is above the 8,000 ft level where altitude sickness can begin to occur.
If you come from sea level and have not had time to acclimatize to the altitude, we recommend renting a horse to see the monarch butterflies. If you have acclimatized or are feeling well, it is an easy hike for children.
