  • Last weekend we went to the sanctuary of the monarch butterfly and the visit was worth a lot. From León, GTO. We did about 3 hrs and a half to reach the ejido. To the parking area charged US $40 pesos by auto and for entering the reserve $50 per person. I recommend you wear comfortable shoes and clothes because you have to walk quite a stretch to get to the sanctuary and is a slope (30 min. approx. depending on the rhythm). If you believe that they can not become walking, you also rent horses up and down; However, I think that a little of the essence of the journey is lost. During all change there are staff who guide you on the path to follow and I was surprised the place, impeccable cleaning. In terms of food options there are plenty and varied; to me what I most liked was an esquite.
