Take a trip of a lifetime to witness one of the world’s most rare biological phenomena: the monarch butterfly migration. Monarchs travel from Canada to spend the winter in their protected sanctuaries in the mountains of Michoacán, Mexico. Butterfly wings create a humming chorus – what we call the ‘ROAR OF THE MONARCH’ – an experience like no other.
We invite you to indulge in regional, delicious Mexican cuisine, be pampered in unique lodging, and discover the historical and cultural features distinct to the colonial cities of Michoacán. We will visit local artisans of the region and explore beautiful Morelia, Pátzcuaro, and Zitácuaro.
You will experience the butterflies in their full glory during our 2023 Mexico Expedition. Alongside ECOLIFE staff, local guide Alejandro Vilchis teaches you the true traditions of Central Mexico.
Join us in 2023 for an adventure of monarchs butterflies, people, and marvelous Michoacán!
Proof of vaccination against COVID-19 is required for travel with ECOLIFE. We visit vulnerable communities in rural Mexico already at risk for pulmonary disease from indoor cooking fires, and we do not want to risk transmitting disease to them. We appreciate your understanding.
