Butterfly Tour from Morelia

by Marty, Colorado / Ixtapa, Wednesday, January 10, 2018, 11:59 (9 days ago)

I am researching info for a friend that wants to take a tour from Morelia.

Does anyone have recent information on recommending a tour company that leaves out of Morelia?

We stayed at the Casa Rosa a couple of years ago. We flew into Morelia from Chicago. They had a tour guide/taxi cab driver that did the tours. He took us to the Reserve to see the Butterflies- we rode the horses up to the plateau just below the woods where the butterflies are. My wife had never ridden a horse before and didn't know about adjusting the stirrups. After the round trip she was really sore and said that was her first and last time on a horse. We really love Morelia and have been there twice. This time of the years, Morelia is really cool in the evening and early morning- layer so as it warms up you can pull off the top layer- we had frost driving to the Reserve.

We also had a very good experience staying at Casons Rosa and using one of their guides for the trip to the Reserve. Lovely place to stay and great guides. She can also arrange a day visit to several of the towns around Lake Patzcuaro. Very nice introduction to the area.

Try looking up M and M tours out of Morelia
I ride the bus up to Morelia hook up with the tour guide who picks us up at our hotel just choose a hotel in the square close to the church and your guide picks you up early am drive to (rosario)mountain range or which ever mountain range has the most mariposas it has always been rosario when Ive gone. you can ride the horses or walk up it is easy if your mobile . Have a lunch or snack and back to Morelia for the night . It is absolutely the most beautiful ride across the countryside before you get to the butterfly preserve sit back and enjoy . your guide is always speaking english and is very astute about all history and unesco sites . I have been 3 times and the best time to go is in Feb. my personal choice because the sun is out and the monarchs are flying around and very active.

Couple of years later after we were there the owner took over the running of the B&B. The lady that ran it when we were there caused some problems with some guest. Our guide/taxi driver took us to the home of one of Mexico's famous artist- the chance of meeting him and being given a tour by his daughter of his studio in his home and then she taking us down stairs to her studio where she did hand made designer purses- glad there was a problem with the ATM's that morning as we were heading out on our tour of villages between Morelia and Patzquaro. What a addition to our Bucket List.

Thanks to the posters for info. and any other future posters

We have been to see the butterflies many years ago and stayed in Angangueo and went to the sanctuary above Angangueo next to the Mexico State line. One of the best trips we have ever done in Mexico.

But my Friend will be staying in Morelia and wanted a tour company from there. I will pass on the information to him.

Once again....thanks
