Location of Adventure

Our Private Leaders
Included
Accommodations, meals from dinner on Day 1 to breakfast on the final day, purified drinking water, soda and beer with meals, services of NHA Expedition Leaders, airport transfers on Day 1 (and early arrival transfers if extra hotel night(s) are booked through NHA) and at the end of the tour, horseback riding option at butterfly sanctuaries, most gratuities, all permits, entrance fees and taxes.

Physical Requirements
Moderate 
Visiting the butterfly sanctuaries requires walking for approximately two miles at altitudes up to 10,660 feet, on very steep inclines and sometimes over rough, rocky terrain, in some cases walking up over 600 steps to reach the butterflies. The physical exertion involved can be considered strenuous for people who are less active. Horses are available to ride for some portions of certain trails at the sanctuaries, though trails are narrow and rugged and riders must be alert to maintaining balance. Due to the small stature of the horses that are local to the Mexican highlands, the maximum rider weight each horse can carry is 260 pounds. Travelers concerned with their physical capabilities should contact our office for further details on the exact physical requirements of this trip, as well as their personal physician for his/her opinion about their suitability for the demands of this itinerary.
Important Information About This Trip
The monarch butterfly sanctuaries in central Mexico are a wonder that no nature lover or photography enthusiast should miss! Observing and photographing the movements of the monarchs is a truly moving experience. This trip can be more strenuous than most, however, so please read carefully the section on 'Physical Requirements' above.
Mandatory Insurance
