My wife and I are planning a week long stay in Guanajuato in February. We mostly plan to relax and enjoy Guanajuato but she is very curious to see the monarch butterflies. How far is it from Guanajuato to the butterfly sanctuaries? Are there organized day trips? Is there a recommendation how to do this if we wanted to take a couple of days and make this trip?
As i recall there isnt any direct service from GTO to Angangueo.
I made a trip from Leon to Morelia and then transfer to Zitacuaro the Monarch are really close. The total time was like 4 hrs. So you can depart early to Morelia, Zitacuaro is just + 2 hrs from Morelia.
