Introduction to rural life (milking cows, learning part of the process of traditional cheese), with views that will steal your breath. Traditional food and some drinks!
The cost of this optional tour and traditional Mexican meal at an organic farm in the Los Picachos Valley is only $187.97

Cheryl Barnard, Port Elgin, Ontario - "A true adventure!"
Joyce Pearsall, Brevard, NC - "This was a once-in-a-lifetime trip for me. As a volunteer with Monarch Watch as a Conservation Specialist, it was important for me to actually see the overwintering sites in Mexico. I have seen them in California about two years ago, so these are precious memories! Even with the importance of the monarchs to me, what was even more unique was having Estela Romero as a guide and taking us to Macheros to see the children and meet families up close and personal. It was very much worth my money and time to experience that adventure! I learned much and am grateful!"
Deanna Ott, Aurora, CO - "The Monarch Mecca trip was amazing. Seeing the Monarchs was more than I imagined, it was magic. I also enjoyed the botanical gardens in Toluca and touring around Mexico City."
Jen Neve, Austin, TX - "Kylee was a delight. She was very informative and shared enough of her experiences to keep things interesting. She also organized a nice surprise visit from a young lady who had bicycled the monarch migration route. Sherrill was wonderful. Organised and very clear about expectations and timeliness. The Rancho San Cayetano B&B was so pretty. The rooms were comfortable. Hotel Avandaro was incredible-so nice. El Rosario sanctuary was incredible."
