While doing my research and working on several articles about my recent trip to Mexico I came across this amazing short movie about the largest insect migration in the world.
I was amazed by the story and the message, therefore I decided to share it with you.
It is about how millions of monarch butterflies travel from the United States and Canada to pass the cold months in the towering trees of this beautiful forest and they end up in Michoacán, Mexico. On their incredible journey, the butterflies travel around 2,800 miles.
Take the time to see this beautiful 4 minutes movie and I am sure you will enjoy it as much as I did.
What a breathtaking movie with such a beautiful message. Everything on earth is interconnected and this is how it should always be. Stay tuned and follow my blog if you wish to learn more about all our Mexico adventures and many more beautiful destinations around the world.
If you decide to visit Michoacán, Mexico and experience one of the greatest natural events on earth, check the following link: accommodation in Michoacán. The best time to visit is anywhere between November and March. The first Monarch Butterflies arrive to Michoacán in November, however, their numbers are quite low until the start of January. Because there’s many newborns in January and the Monarch Butterfly population is at its peak. There are actually 3 Monarch Butterfly Sanctuaries in Michoacan area that you can chose. The Cerro Pelon (near Zitacuaro), Sierra Chincua (near Angangeo) and El Rosario (near Ocampo).
As I mentioned in my previous post about my Chichen Itza experience, on my recent trip to Mexico I stayed in Cancun. The hotel we stayed is called The Royal Islander – An All Suites Resort, locals call it Royal Caribbean as well. Since I had experienced their unbelievably grate hospitality I can truly recommend this hotel to everyone if you are about to visit Cancun. I will write more about this experience in one of my next articles .
If you are staying in Mexico City, the Estado de Mexico near Valle de Bravo is the most visited Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary because it is nearby Mexico City, so a lot of tourists are choosing it to make a day trip from Mexico city.
