  • It is an incredible spectacle where millions of fireflies light up the forest, I witnessed this natural phenomenon thanks to the TerceraGratis.Com travel agency with an excellent service and the guides are very attentive and super are trained to give you the right information. Thank you.

  • The experience is unique. During my stay in nancamilpa, there are dozens of tours to the sanctuary, however, it is important to visit only those who are registered by the since SETYDE that are the safest and which are more likely to make a sighting (are 16 ecotourism centres and are located after the entrance to the forest cabin, not in the village). He planned to go to a less well-known than the two most popular ecoturisitico Center (Santa Clara or stone edged) and arriving at the place, there was an ecotourism Center that convinced me more: Vista Hermosa. And go I do not regret the decision. The Centre has 4 or 5 tours, the difficulty of each one is set to the length of the path. We chose the longest. To begin with, "Beautiful view" does not have a surplus of inflow. Something very important since among more people, more difficult to spot many fireflies. The groups are low and this gives you a great plus. The Guide provided is very helpful and takes you to places where there is no other group, so watching, having the necessary climatic conditions, is guaranteed! And not only that, with much larger quantity! In addition to this, the guide is adjusted to the needs of the Group (if anyone is tired or not can lead the pace stops). Temrinar sightings (which takes more or less a couple of hours), to top it off, the ecotourism centre has a food in the forest zone (coffee hot by the cold) and a restaurant out of the forest (in the q starts the tour). The restaurant has exquisite typical food. Widely recommended soups and quesadillas from fungi in the region. This experience shows that not always the most popular is the best, since I came across an excellent ecotourism centre! There is accommodation in the restaurant as camping in the forest, but there is that book well in advance. In contrast, I can say that on one occasion Clara visit the Holy ecotourism centre and the experience leaves much to be desired. First of all, it has great influx of people and that makes more difficult the sighting (more people, more noise, among other things). Accommodation in cabins is not bad, but camping is not good if you're in couple or family plan. Too many groups of people tomanado alcohol and littering. Personally, I stay with beautiful view, entirely. MUST go prepared for the cold and carry waterproof.

  • The point here is to see the fireflies at night in the middle of the forest on a hill, everything is incredible as you go prepared to 100, from which sleep, lots of clothes and warm, waterproof, food, auto and patience. To me and my friends we came up with the idea of camping, so we are preparing for one camping site, we spent everything. We were almost to season, half it rained, we saw many fireflies, the water got to the houses of campaign, a dog ate our food (not kidding), our blankets and clothing were wet, there were many people and we were more in the forest dying of cold, all the wood was wet and we couldn't do campfire. My advice is go to the start of the season and stay in Tlaxcala or take a tour, Nanacamilpa is about 40 minutes from the city of Tlaxcala and I think there are very few lodging options, ultimately they don't camp, makes a thousand demons cold. Public transport options are few and slow. I do not recommend it for children and the elderly, the forest is dark and slippery, the children cry and that affects out fireflies. I should specify that we pay for camping in a special area of the campsite and the tour to the forest is as in $100 (Mexican peso), you can take it on many sides, as there are many people in order to season, literal there traffic up and down the Hill, the passage is narrow and dark, then people can not see where to step and everything is lost. The good things is that day, the view is spectacular, it has enviable views of the volcanoes, try the snows of lemon in the Center, they put chile and I don't know that more but are delicious.
