La Ruta Don Vasco
Historical Journey to the Monarch Butterflies
This custom designed tour was created for a couple staying in Zihuatanejo. They expressed less interest in the churches and archaeological sites, and more interest in the local culture, geology and nature. Their priority was to visit the Monarch Butterflies, while enjoying other highlights from La Ruta Don Vasco. This couple had already booked two beautiful, award winning boutique B&B's Casa Encantada in Patzcuaro and Casona Rosa in Morelia. Due to their time allowance, we booked them into Agua Blanca Resort near Sierra Chincua Butterfly Reserve, to save them a 6 hour return commute as a day-trip.
