The sanctuaries are located in beautiful stretches of countryside, where you climb up through cool pine forests to find the clusters of butterflies clinging to the fir branches before the final farewell. In addition, you find carpets of them on the forest floor, fluttering orange and golden leaves.
There are five sanctuaries open to visitors in the State of Michoacan, and they can all be reached by one of the following base towns:- Zitacuaro, Angangueo, and Ocampo. Like anywhere in Mexico, public transport connections all work smoothly.
