VISIT THE MONARCH BUTTERFLIES!

Dear Zihua folks!

I am always listening to feedback and reading between the questions - and so I have completely reworked a special tour to visit the Monarch Butterflies this December.

If we can get 26 participants, this tour will cost $5000 Pesos each + bus fare to Morelia & Hotels in Morelia and Jungapeo.

ITINERARY FROM ZIHUATANEJO:

Day 0) Take the bus from Zihua to Morelia. Stay overnight.

Day 1) The van to Junagapeo will depart Morelia at 8:30. Visit the Pueblo Magico Christmas Town of Tlalpujahua. Arrive in the Jungapeo area around 3:30 PM. This evening, attend a fascinating lecture with research scientist Dr. Pablo Jaramillo Lopez. Dr. Jaramillo will discuss the phenomenal migration of the Monarch Butterflies, share his personal research with you, and answer your questions.

Day 3) Depart Jungapeo at 11 AM to visit a private nature reserve that is closed to the public. You will have the opportunity to spend the afternoon with this Monarch colony in the presence of a scientist who has conducted ample research in this region. Though a group size of 26 may seem large, you will not be surrounded by hundreds of other visitors, as you would experience at the commercial sites. Depart the reserve for an indigenous village, where we have been invited to have dinner with the Mazahua peoples who live in this reserve.

Day 4) Depart Jungapeo for Morelia by 9:30 AM. We will reach Morelia around 12:30 - so those of you who wish to return immediately to Zihuatanejo can take the 3 PM bus that gets you back to the beach by 8PM.

Transportation from Morelia
Presentation with Dr. Pablo Jaramillo Lopez
Guided tour to a colony wintering in a private reserve that is closed to the public

Meals (other than the Mazahua Village dinner)
